25 weeks

Well, I am 25 weeks and four days to be exact, so really halfway between 25 and 26 weeks.

It has been amazing to watch my belly grow! I already feel huge, but I know this is nothing compared to what I'll feel/look like in the coming weeks and months.

The latest pregnancy updates:
~I had felt our baby girl move starting at 18 weeks, but not very often. Basically as soon as I turned 22 weeks, I started feeling her every day, all the time. It is the best thing ever! She is an active little one and has some pretty strong kicks.
~Matt was able to feel her kick for the first time just about one week ago. I have also seen my belly move a couple of times when she is active.
~We have settled on a first name for our baby girl. We love it and can't wait to announce it when she arrives! {Still working on the middle name...}
~The latest not-so-fun parts of pregnancy: 1) a few stretch marks have made an appearance--yuk.
2) My back, or rather my spine, has been very uncomfortable these past weeks. I have a 20 degree curve in my lower spine and a 12 degree curve in my upper spine {think "S" shape}, so I think I'm feeling quite a bit more back pain than most pregnant ladies.
~I am starting to struggle a bit with insomnia. Nothing extreme, but it really doesn't help with the overall general fatigue I've been fighting since early on.
~I will be working up through Christmas, and after that I will stop and get to focus on all the preparations for this little one. I am longing for that, because right now I feel sooo unprepared for her arrival!

I can't believe that in less than four months our baby girl will be here! These next 13-14 weeks are going to absolutely fly by with the holidays approaching, but not only that, Matt and I are currently house shopping, so it is very likely we shall be packing up our little apartment and moving into our first home! {We hope!} It's going to be non-stop busyness until she arrives and that's a great thing because we JUST CAN'T WAIT to meet our little girl.
