25 Week Update

How many weeks? I am 25 weeks!


Today, we are celebrating Heidi’s Day.  Josh and I had a nice evening together having dinner, making her cupcakes, and remembering our first born.



Taylor is freaking out right now from all the icing I sampled.  I think she’s on a sugar high! :)


How am I feeling?  I’m feeling pretty good!  I’ve started feeling more achiness in my lower back and abdomen lately.   The pain has been radiating down to my legs and knees, so my guess is that it’s just growing pains.  I will bring this up to my doctor tomorrow to see what she thinks, but everything I read says that this is normal at this point of my pregnancy.

Doctor’s Appointment? Yes, I go tomorrow.  I’m excited to see Baby Tay and check on how my cervix is holding up.  Please pray for continued good news!

Weight Gain? 12 pounds.

Baby Preparation?  I downloaded the Baby Center app for my phone and have been enjoying reading the daily updates.  The app tells me that Taylor is now about 13.5” long and 1.5 pounds!

  1. I've been thinking about you! I love that you're doing the cupcake tradition! Very sweet way to remember your precious babies!

  2. Lauren,

    First of all, much love to you today and I'm holding sweet Heidi in my prayers and thoughts. She is a very special little girl. Each of your children is special and leave such a legacy.

    As for the pains that you are feeling, I'm feeling lower abdominal pain too on occasion and mentined it to my Dr. She reassured me that its indeed growing pains. Also, I'm having pain in my hips that radiates into my legs and I notice it especially at night. But, we welcome all these growth spurts, don't we :)

    Praying for you as you go to tomorrow's appointment.
