I seriously need to get a current bump shot!

And now for an update:

How far along: 25 weeks,  2 days 

How big is the baby: She is currently the size of a rutabaga in the veggie world! That equals 13.5 inches long and about 1.5lbs.

Total weight gain: To date, 25lbs :0 

Sleep: What sleep! I’ve had some serious insomnia going on this past week.  And Maddie is a mover at night to top it off!! 

Maternity Clothes: Oh yes! 

Food cravings: Watermelon…and lots of it! 

Food aversions: None this week 


  • Multiple bathroom trips! Let me just say the books didn’t tell the truth when they said that the frequent bathroom trips slow down in the 2nd trimester…or maybe it’s because Maddie likes to head-butt my bladder!!
  • Leg cramps! Oh my…those are killer and annoying to say the least!
  • Hot Flashes! Or maybe that is because mother nature is having some extreme hot flashes right now!!

Noteworthy Moments:

  • Swimming: Maddie may be a little water baby! While swimming today, she was moving more than ever before.  Guess that is a good thing, as I plan to live in the water this summer!!

Movement: Yes…she is rockin’ and rollin’ like crazy! But the little stinker will not move for anyone else.  Any other hand touches the belly and she abruptly stops.    

Gender: Girl!

Appointment: I had my last appointment on the 24th.  All is going smoothly and both of us are doing great! Next appointment is June 22nd and includes the lovely glucose test and then my appointments move to every 2 weeks.  Wow time is flying by much quicker than I ever thought possible!!


  1. a delightful update and your bump shots are a work of art. love all the bright colors and zebra background.

  2. Awww, how sweet. And, it is such fun to have the series of pictures to show to your child when she grows up. Increase your calcium intake and that may help with those leg cramps.

    All the very best,

  3. LOL! on the watermelon. That's one of the things I craved with Ladybug and she LOVES it....like OBSESSED with it. She can smell it a MILE away.

  4. Very nice post! Love your bump shots! I did the same thing.:)
    My son's birthday is the end of June. Keep us posted! Happy Memorial Day!

  5. I thought of Tracy's Ladybug when you said you were craving watermelon!

  6. I guess this mama of your's better go buy you another watermelon real soon, right!!!! Have to admit the last one was so sweet!
