I don't think your ready... for this BELLY!

So ladies...today I am 25.5 weeks pregnant! CRAZY right? It feels like just the other day that I found out I was pregnant!


So far this journey has been AMAZING! Once I finally got over the fact that I was "getting fat" I started embracing my new body and loving every second of it! I haven't had one single second of sickness and other than being really tired until about 19 or 20 weeks, it has been perfection!!



I had a Dr appt yesterday and he said everything was great! We talked about my weight gain! So far, I have gained 30 lbs (tough to admit) but he thinks I am retaining lots of fluid so that might have something to do with that number. Nothing to be afraid of, I assured him I would watch my salt intake. It's so hard for me. He told me he would like to keep me between 40-45 lbs gained so I really have to watch it these next 14.5 weeks! But I am not worried! It will all come off QUICKLY! Rest assured! :)



I feel so blessed to be able to carry this child that God has so graciously given us and we are so anxious to meet her, but we are also enjoying our last months as "just the two of us!"



I have lots of updates on the house etc that I will blog about over the next week or so! Lots of pics to be included that I still have to take :)



But for today, here is my 25 week pic :) This belly is growing and I am finally starting to look pregnant! :) WHEW!

I remember having all those same emotions when I was pregnant with Ashley. This second time has been a little differemt since I didn't feel great in the beginning and I am chasing after Ashley. But it will probably all change when I feel #2 start to move :-)

You look beautiful! I wish I could be so sure that I will take the weight off, haha. I have ZERO energy all the time & I just feel like that is going to get worse. I bought a pregnancy workout DVD like 5-6 weeks ago & it's still in the package :P
