Baby G is so strong for how small he is. My Husband got to feel him kick really good, this time he was home. We got so much done around the house and the Baby’s room is really coming along. I can’t wait for him to come back home in a couple of weeks to get more done around the house.
How far along: I am 25 weeks.
Symptoms: Peeing, peeing and more peeing! Abdominal muscle pain and back pain has gotten worse. Getting up from a seated position is getting difficult. I’m having to use my arms to help me get up to not strain my stomach muscles. I get very out of breath while doing simple things like Vacuuming the house and my simple Prental Workouts. Exhaustion and fatigue is starting back in again.
Cravings: None at all. I love all the same foods I did before.
Aversions: No aversions either.
Wedding rings: Off. My Wedding Set has gotten too tight and very uncomfortable to wear unfortunately. I have ordered a set of rubber Wedding Rings from Qalo.
Sleep: It is really hard to get comfortable but I sleep pretty well. It feels like once I fall asleep, I have to get up and pee.
Excited for: Meeting him. I am getting so close to the end that all I wanna do is see him & see what he looks like. A lot of my friends and family who were Pregnant with me have had their babies. It makes me so excited and anxious to have mine!
Missing: Fitting into clothes comfortably and lifting 50lbs or more. Lifting 25lbs is very painful and not happening either. It’s hard for me to not be able to do all my normal activities. I am a Deer Hunter and hunting season is appraching! When my Husband was home he set up our ground blind for me to use. I hope to get out there and get a Buck this year!
Movement: YES! He is already an athlete like his Momma! I am pretty sure this little one is supposed to be sleeping majority of the day, but that does not seem to be the case. There are times of no movement but it doesn’t seem for very long. Sometimes he kicks something and it hurts a bit. It’s awesome to see my belly move when he gets going.
Exercise: I strive to do my Prenatal Workouts at least 4 times a week. My job has me pretty active as well.
Stretch Marks: Nope. I’m lathering up with Organic Goats Milk Lotion from Ulta and Sweet Almond Oil.
Swelling: I notice my hands being affected in the late evenings and early mornings. That’s why I can’t wear my Wedding Rings.
Labor Signs: None
What I am Loving: Decorating the Nursery, buying the decor and baby clothes.
