25 & 26 weeks with our baby boy!

Wow! It's so hard to believe that I am closing out the second trimester this week. Little Liam's due date is three short months from this Sunday and if he follows in his sister's footsteps, he could be here in less than that! Ah! Crazy yet exciting!

Well no weekly chalkboard picture again this week since the person I bought my new (to me!) camera from on eBay decided to take all week to ship! I am just relieved that they finally did because $300 is a lot of money to lose! I probably shouldn't have taken the risk of making such a big purchase online, but a brand new camera was not in the budget so buying used was my only option. I am dying to get it in my hands and capture some new memories!

Anyway, here's my bumpdate for weeks 25 and 26!

an instagram bump picture will have to do!
Size of Baby:  Liam not weighs about 1 2/3 pounds and measures 14 inches from head to heel. 

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  Finally got on the scale. Ugh. Maybe I shouldn't have! I'm up almost 30 pounds!! Looks like I'm on track to gain as much as I did with LG. I know I am eating better and I am definitely more active than I was when I was expecting her so I am thinking this is just how my body responds to pregnancy. Nursing will do wonders in a few months! (At least it did with Londyn Grace so I'm hoping that's the case again!) 

Maternity Clothes: Still mostly my pre-pregnancy maxi skirts for church and going out and about. At home, mostly just my comfy clothes.

Gender:  It's a BOY!! Our sweet Liam Daniel :)

Movement: He let his Daddy feel him move last week!

Sleep:  Sleeping pretty well! 

What I miss:  Nothing! Pregnancy is such a wonderful thing!

Cravings: Feeling hungry, but not really knowing what I want! Weird!

Symptoms: The nosebleeds and heartburn have lessened over the last two weeks. Having a little back pain and had my first charlie horse the other morning. I got them a lot with LG. Overall feeling really well and really thankful!

Best moment this week: Definitely when Daddy felt his baby boy move for the first time! 

And just the everyday moments like cooking breakfast with a baby on my hip and a baby in my belly! I am so blessed to be living my dream! Thank You, Lord! 


  1. Ebay is where I purchase all of my camera equipment! It's a safe place to make big purchases!

  2. Love everything about this! God has really blessed us, hasn't He?

  3. I can't believe how fast your pregnancy is going! Can't wait to start seeing pictures of little Liam popping up in my instagram feed. :)
