Brady's Bump- 25 weeks

Due Date: March 24, 2012
Weight gain: I gained 5lbs! She didn’t ask me if I were on a diet this time. haha
Maternity clothes: All the time from now until Brady gets here.
Sleep: Pretty good most nights.
What I miss: Sleeping on my belly.
Movement: He kicks all the time (especially at night!)
Sex: BOY!!!! Brady James Seals
Food cravings: Butterfingers & hot chocolate
What I'm looking forward to: Being done with college so all I have to do is think about Brady!
Exciting stuff: Graduation is this coming Saturday!!! Then we’re going to Dallas to shop for baby furniture!!

This has been an eventful week. Tuesday was my last day of class this semester (well, actually ever!). It’s nice to have that behind me! Wednesday I found out I passed my comprehensive exam!!! I’m so relieved and thankful for that good news! Thursday I had my weekly appointment and everything went pretty good. She checked me to see if I’m anemic & I slightly am…so she put me on iron because she said it would continue to get worse. I told her last week about how I’m having Braxton Hicks contractions all the time, so she also checked my cervics. This made me really nervous because I don’t want to go into preterm labor…but they are closed shut! Thank the good Lord above! I’m just going to have to learn to slow down a bit. I’m used to running 90 mph and that’s just not going to work right now. I’m carrying an extra 25lbs around and it’s making a big difference. This week, I will do my glucose test. I’m not looking forward to that, but at least I will have it behind me.

I’m amazed that I’m already 25 weeks pregnant! I never thought I’d make it to this point but I’m here & I’m loving every minute of it. Brady is such an active kid! Which doesn’t surprise me, he’s going to be just like his dad, into everything! I’m so thankful for this little boy. And as fun as being pregnant is, I’m SO ready to meet my little guy. I dream about it every night…I just can’t imagine what it’s going to feel like when they put him in my arms for the first time.

I feel like I’ve put everything off for the past few months just to focus on college, so I have a lot of catching up to do. I started working on making a stocking for Brady, I’m hoping to have it completed my Christmas. I just ordered my Christmas cards today. I usually have them out a lot sooner than this. I’ve got most of my Christmas shopping completed, but still have a few things to get.

Only 15 weeks to go!!!! I’m so ready to meet Brady!!


  1. Finally a good look at the bump! You look fabulous! Don't worry about the iron thing. I had to take it too and still am as long as I'm nursing. But if you're having contractions you better take it easy! Everything needs to take a backseat to your health and Brady right now. So proud you're done with school. Way to go!

  2. Yay!!! Love the new pics!! You are so cute with the Brady bump!! Enjoy this time!!!
