25 weeks

This past weekend we hit 25 weeks pregnant!! Wahoo! Wow, it is starting to go really fast; about 100 days to go until our due date. We are looking more and more forward to it everyday. It has been a nightly ritual now when I get in bed to lay down and little baby Fever starts going crazy!!...kicking and punching, it almost feels like there should be 5 of them in there. It is so much fun feeling it move around so much during the day as well, and when I look down it is almost kinda freaky that I can actually see my belly popping around everywhere, but I love it! :) I have not been sleeping as well lately because I am starting to get pretty uncomfortable, and having to get up to go to the bathroom usually 3 times in the middle of the night. Other than that I have been feeling really good. Thad and I just celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary on tuesday and we are getting ready to move in less than a month. So we have been pretty busy; I am really looking forward to more space and being able to get stuff ready for the baby. We started our birthing classes, and we absolutely love it! We are taking a Bradley Method class with Lakeisha Holloway, a childbirth educator and doula here in town and have been learning so much already. It is an 8 week class where we learn about proper nutrition, relaxation and breathing, exercises, positions in advanced first and second stage labor, how to handle pain, coaching techniques(for Thad), energy saving techniques, planning birth and postpartum, and also preparing for a new family, baby care, and breastfeeding. It is a small class with just one other couple who is also planning for a homebirth. It is such a blessing to have an opportunity and community like this to share and learn from. Here are a few recent pictures, taken at 25 weeks and 3 days. The belly is really popping out there...:)
One with the shirt...and a naked belly......and this is a scary one!!...you can see the mark above my navel is where I used to have my belly button pierced. I am definately popping out, and have lost my waist.

My word you are gorgeous. I want to take your picture! I am so excited for you and Thad. What a fun season of life to go though. Are you so excited to make a nursery for little baby? I think that is what I would be most excited for. You really are gorgeous and I hope and pray you start to sleep better. But, I am sure it's only preparing you. Oh the joys of babies and waking up all the time. Anyways, excited for you two and keep growing that beautiful little baby. Congrats on your two year, our one year is coming up on Monday. Before we know it we will be celebrating our 50ths!
