Again my husband was taking the picture and making me laugh so I do apologize that the picture isn’t the best!
how far along: 25 Weeks
size of baby: Rutabaga 13.5 in., 1.5 lbs.
total weight gain: 14 lbs
favorite clothes: leggings, stretchy tops and comfy shorts
symptoms: Braxton hicks have eased up significantly, I am drinking more water like my doctor told me to so I suppose that has helped. I have had a lot of hip pain and lower back pain from sleeping on my sides at night. Exhaustion by three P.M. everyday, which has been hard, but I knew the fatigue would slowly start back up the closer I got to the third trimester. I am having trouble getting up lol or squatting because the baby sits so low and is in the way!
sleep: Not too bad this week. Other than the pain I have slept pretty well. I am having intense dreams again, but that is fine.
must-haves: Water, water, water. Loose bottoms because he sits so low and anything that is restrictive at all is so uncomfortable.
cravings: None because I want to eat absolutely everything in sight lol, I am struggling on maintaining control of what I am eating because I am so hungry all the time.
baby movement: I guess since he is growing the movement is easing up now. Although when he does completely change position it is painful for me since the space is getting cramped in there. He had his first hiccups two nights ago and I freaked out because the other babies had about two seconds between each hiccup, he was hiccupping to the rhythm of a heartbeat so I panicked lol.
husband: He is losing weight haha which is wonderful for him and I am so happy for him, but I told him he needs to slow down or soon we will weight the same! He has been working a lot so we have hardly even seen each other except when he gets home in the morning and before he goes to work in the afternoon.
best moment this week: I think we finally have a first name that we both like and agree on, now to figure out a middle name so I can start the nursery!
From newborn through the first year. Schedules with each transitional phase in mind.
