Bump Update: Week 25

Well, this pregnancy is ramping up and it's starting to hit me that at some point this baby is going to have to come out of me. As of yesterday, I'm officially 5 1/2 months and baby boy is now the size of a head of cauliflower. At our last ultrasound, two weeks ago, he was weighing just as much as he should be at this point - which was about a pound. But as of now, the apps say he weighs around 1.5 pounds and I can attest to that... 

I'm just now starting to feel those pregnancy pains everyone talks about getting once the near the end of the second trimester. My back is just now starting to hurt whenever I sleep. It hasn't helped that I haven't been sleeping without a body pillow for support. So earlier today Alex took me to Target to get me a body pillow. I'm happy to report that it worked like a charm during my afternoon nap. Yup, naps are back again. In fact, the other day I fell asleep for almost two hours. But I am still doing prenatal yoga and using the treadmill at the gym.

Needless to say, Alex & I are getting even more excited about meeting our little boy this coming March. There are just a few more months left! It's been crazy to watch my stomach grow, little by little and to actually know where baby is in there. The other day he was curled up on my left side and when I placed Alex's hands on where he was nestled, Alex looked at me and said, "He's so tiny!". And he's only partially right - because yes, he is tiny - but every day he is getting bigger and bigger. Hence the reality that sometime in the next three months I'm going to have to push this baby out! It's wild & crazy, but we can't wait.
