Bumps & Braids: Week 25
This week we went to lake Powell with my moms side of the family and it was SO fun! I was a little worried about going being pregnant and having gallstones, but everything went great! I couldn’t do a lot of things like wakeboard and surf (which are my favorite things to do in lake Powell) or eat any of the yummy treats everyone brought 😩 but I still had lots of fun floating in the water and going on boat rides! I was also really worried about finding a swimsuit to take with me because I didn’t like any of the maternity suits I found and didn’t think any regular swimsuits would look good on me pregnant. I was ready to just wear a big t shirt all week, BUT then I went to Albion with my sister to get her a new swimsuit and decided to try on a few and fell in LOVE with this one! The top was so comfy and didn’t slide around or move so I felt like I was covered the whole time and wasn’t going to flash anyone! The bottoms were great too because they hit just perfectly below my belly, but I didn’t feel like they were going to fall off or reveal too much when I got out of the water! This was a perfect pregnancy swimsuit for me and the best part is I can wear it after I have the baby and it will still look just as cute!
How far along? 25 weeks!
How Big is baby? As big as a baseball glove! (Brandon loved that 😉) He weighs about a 1.5 lbs now.
Weight Gained? Uhh I haven’t weighed myself in a while 🙈 but going off my last doctors appointment 3 lbs!
Maternity clothes? This week I’ve lived in swimsuit while we’ve been at lake Powell so I haven’t had to worry about fitting in my regular clothes!
Stretch marks? Not yet!
Sleep? It’s been a rough week of sleep! Besides constantly having to get up to go to the bathroom, it rained 2 of the 4 nights we were in lake Powell! Everyone was sleeping outside on top of the houseboat so we got drenched!!
Best moment this week? Being with my whole family in lake Powell and seeing how excited everyone was for baby to join us!
Miss Anything? Being able to wakeboard and do other water sports! It was so hard to watch everyone tube, wakeboard, surf, cliff jump, and do all the fun things I couldn’t! It will all be worth it though when I get to see cute baby’s face!
Movement? He’s constantly moving like crazy!! (And always when I’m trying to go to sleep!) We might have a trouble causer on our hands!
Anything making you queasy or sick? I’m becoming much more sensitive to smell now! I brought some chicken to lake Powell (since I’m on a special diet for my gallbladder) and couldn’t even eat it because the smell made me sick!! It’s so weird how one day something smells fine and then the next day I can’t stand it!
Cravings? Everything fatty!! This gallbladder stuff is NO FUN!!
Labor Signs? I’ve had a few Braxton hick contractions, but nothing too bad to cause concern!
Symptoms? Restless legs!! I already had them pretty bad before, but now it’s even worse!
Belly Button in or out? It’s almost an outtie now! So weird!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy this week!
Looking forward to? My baby showers! It will be so fun to celebrate baby with all the people I love!
This weeks braid? My Mohawk braid again! You can’t even tell in this picture because of my sunglasses…oops! My hair kept getting in my face (especially when I was on the boat) even when it was in a bun so I just braided the Mohawk section straight back into my bun and it kept my hair out of my face!
Thanks for reading this weeks Bumps and Braids beauties!
