BUMPdate: 25 Weeks

So, this BUMPdate is a little different. We decided to get a little creative and enter a local contest called the Pregnant Pumpkin Pageant. This is my husband's work of art. For those of you who aren't familiar with the Nyan Cat, you need to check it out here. Now. It's the dumbest thing ever but it's kinda cute too. We decided to go with spooky scene featuring Nyan Cat delivering a baby girl. Voting starts next week so I'll keep you posted-- hopefully you'll vote for us!
*Please excuse the no makeup, messy hair look going on here. It was a long night.
The painting took about 3 hours to complete.*

Size of the baby? 
The size of an eggplant (9 inches, 2lbs.)

Total Weight Gain/Loss? 
20 lbs. & I'm not happy about that!
I'm waiting on a new belt for our treadmill and it can't get here fast enough.

Maternity Clothes? 
Some basic maternity tops and jeans mixed in with non-maternity clothes 

Stretch marks? 

Best Moments? 
My parents gave us the greatest gift- we got a crib last weekend! We started moving things around in the nursery and my nesting is in full effect.

Our little girl is a night owl. She loves to move around right around the time that I'm getting ready for bed.

Food Cravings? 
Still chocolate, oh and fruit too.

Anything making you queasy or sick? 
Not really. 

What I miss? 
Being able to drink alcohol. My favorite beer (Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale) is in season and I can't drink it.


Heartburn, almost every night now.

Labor signs? 
No way!


Belly Button In or Out?
Still in but it's slowly starting to protrude.

Wedding rings On or Off? 
Still on!

It's a lot harder to get comfortable now that I'm getting bigger so I often wake myself up when I move around in my sleep.

What I'm looking forward to?
My baby shower! My mom is hosting it at the cutest place and I'm so excited.


  1. So cute!

  2. Your painting is awesome! I think it's so cute to paint the belly :-)

  3. I've never heard of nyan cat but now my boys want to watch it again. Super cute! Don't worry about weight with my first I gained 46 I think and it's all gone now! One of my close friends gained 65 and she was barely 5ft she lost it all too! Have I already asked if you bought a Belly Bandit? They're amazing!

    1. Haha! It's addicting, isn't it? I don't have a Belly Bandit. Does it really work? I'm planning on getting into full throttle work out mode once she's here and I'm able to.

  4. OMG Nyan cat?! My boys love that and they leave it playing all day sometimes to see if they win out of all their friends by who can listen to it the longest!! Boys!! Live the art on your belly and don't worry about the weight, I lost all the 45 lbs.

  5. If you've only gained 20 lbs you're doing fine - I gained almost 50 with Baby B!!


  6. your painted belly is awesome!! 3 hours wow you had to have tons of patience for that but the results are beautiful
