How far along are you? 25 weeks
How I’m feeling: Had a bit of a scare this past weekend… lots of lower abdominal pain and a bit of cramping… plus some spotting. Went to the doctor though everything is GOOD! I’ve just been overdoing it a bit (moving, working out, riding in cars for 7 hours) and my belly is growing.
Total weight gain: I don’t like this… I’m up 15lbs.
Cool baby facts: Annabelle is learning to distinguish right side up from upside down. I feel that this is encouraging her to stand up straight and stomp on my private parts. Finger nails are growing. She also can have a bowel movement now… she’s getting ready for diaper explosions.
Sleep: Still have my date with the potty around 3am and now I am waking up after weird dreams with random songs stuck in my head. It is hard to fall back asleep when you are singing…
Maternity Clothes: Loving my DiscoBelly Lil Sprout maternity t-shirt so much that I’ve worn it three times in the week since I got it.
Best moment this week: Finding out that everything was a-ok at the doctor’s office with me and baby A! Another good moment – the cashier at Target told me she wanted to take a picture of my baby bump because it was just “oh-so-cute.”
Movement: She literally kicks me in the butt. Then in the belly button. Then the ribs. Then the lady parts. I am not complaining though – her moving around inside of me is so incredible!
Food cravings: Sweets – which has become pretty much a constant craving this whole pregnancy.
Food aversions: Nada
Belly button in or out: Still working its way out.
What I miss: Sleep. Not having to go to the bathroom every 30 minutes. Not feeling dehydrated all day long.
What I’m looking forward to: My first baby shower this weekend!!!! Also, our appointment next Tuesday where we will have another ultrasound to check on Annabelle’s growth. I am not, however, looking forward to the Glucose Test at the same appointment.
Randoms: Heartburn and acid reflux are driving me wild. My prescription won’t even control it…. I saw my butt in the mirror while changing and thought Kim Kardashian snuck in my bedroom.
