25 Weeks: Christmas Bump Update {Late}

by SimplySharpe on December 28, 2013

I almost missed this week’s update between vacay and acclimating back to reality after a lovely week in the sunshine state. The questions are pretty repetitive anyway, but it’s kind of nice that I will have a record of each week to share with Baby Sharpe one day.

How far along? 25 weeks

Simply Sharpe 25 Week Bump

Maternity clothes? Yes, and still whining about them. My newest gripe is the quality of the clothes. Why would every item not be washer/dryer friendly? Who is hand washing maternity clothes and hanging them to dry? Crazy ladies that is who! The majority of my maternity clothes are from a store called Motherhood Maternity. I now understand why everyone complains about them. Almost every item I washed and dried is ruined in some way. This is going to be a long, expensive third trimester if maternity clothes are this fragile.

Stretch marks? Sore subject, but just bought a highly recommended product called, Bio-oil.

Sleep? Oh, how I miss it.

Best moment this week? We went home to see our families for Christmas, which is wonderful, but when we got down there, we were surprised with tons of adorable baby onesies and sleepers. My Mother-in-law bought us outfits every time we had a good doctor’s appointment. She gave them to us when we first got there, and it was such a special moment to see the hubs face when he realized just how tiny and precious our little bean is going to be.

Miss anything? Sleep, mostly.

Movement? He was so quiet in Florida, I freaked out a little. Now that we are home, he is back to letting me know all is well in there with kicks and jabs.

Food cravings? Still sweets.

Nausea? None at all.

Started showing yet? Of course.

Labor signs? Nope.

Belly button in or out? Okay y’all, it’s starting to become a smaller belly button, which must mean something in there wants out eventually. Can’t wait to see what it is!

Happy or moody? Deliriously happy when it comes to the pregnancy. Seriously irritable when it comes to crowds, stupid people, driving, store employees, lines, and any other pregnancy rage inducing activities.

Looking forward to? Registering for baby items soon. Everyone in Florida asked when we were doing it, and we were not sure we even would, but now it seems like a good idea. We didn’t register when we got married because we didn’t want people to feel obligated to buy us stuff. We still don’t want people to feel that way, but we certainly don’t mind if people want to shower this baby with love.

I would love to hear from the experienced Mommies about what to register for. I know a baby really doesn’t use a lot of stuff, but what are the items you wish you registered for? Is there anything I should just leave off the list?
