Week 25! This week we celebrated Halloween and all the candy that came along with it! As you can tell I am a little behind on my posting bump updates.
The baby is the size of a cauliflower. I was always think it’s odd how they measure through food because I’ve had some small and large cauliflowers! Either way, baby is about 13.5 inches and 1.46lbs.

A Few Week 25 Pregnancy Highlights
Told you there would be a 1! I am confident I can back on track with an exercise or two a week to keep myself in shape.
Days of Strength Training: 1
Days of Other Workouts: 0
This week: +1.4lbs
So, Halloween was this week. We have a ton of extra candy around the house. It’s been so tempting and of course I have been eating it.
I am a little nervous on next week’s weigh in and am hoping to get back into workouts to keep me somewhat on track with me weight after all that candy.
Head Cold/Sinus Infection
My cold lasted almost a whole week. Half last week and half this week. It was terrible. Everything was in my lungs and I couldn’t breathe.
By the end of the week, I was 100%, so I am hoping it stays that way for the remainder of my pregnancy!
My head cold or sinus infection kept me up several times again this week. I had to sleep with my head propped on a second pillow to help with the congestion pain. That made my neck hurt and I woke up with that pain as well.
Thankfully now at the end of the week I feel much better and am starting to get better sleep compared to then!
Cravings and Aversions
The chocolate craving is real again this pregnancy. I am trying to cut back, but I just want EVERYTHING chocolate.
Chocolate: Oreos, Halloween candy, granola bars with chocolate chips, brownies.
What I eat to curb cravings
Grapes: We keep a bowl of grapes in the fridge washed and de-stemmed, so they are easier to grab. Kudos to Aldi’s for having them all sale each week lately!
