25 Weeks

December 2, 2014

Not my favorite look thus far, hair just wasn't working for me this Sunday. In all honesty though, I'm a cold weather gal for the ease of hair management 100%. 

But let's talk baby. 

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 25 weeks
Size of baby: Baby H is the size of a head of cauliflower (my uterus is the size of a soccer ball)
Maternity Clothes: All maternity pants and bras, and Piko tops. Plus whatever of Jeremy's that fits.
Gender: Boy
Movement: We need to have a discussion this week. Every night since I hit 25 weeks he has started moving at 3:30am every 20 minutes for about 5 minutes at a time. Once I fall asleep again he starts up again. So that leads into the next topic...
Sleep: Haven't had any. Thank you child for wanting to party all night. I literally have a maternity body pillow, a pillow behind my head on top of the maternity pillow, one between my knees, a pillow in between my calves/feet, and last night I added one just to prop up my stomach up extra. None of it has helped and I've been a grouchy old woman every day at work. I need sleep just to be able to have patience. 
Cravings: Super cold water, pretzels with mustard, and the blue cheese coleslaw I made with dinner Monday night.
Highlight this week: Baby's movement has finally gotten to the point where Jeremy can see it and definitely feel it. I was thinking for a good while that this child kicked only when no one was around. However after Laura shook my stomach half to death he as been on a rampage. I also have my glucose test tomorrow and a prenatal massage Thursday.

Here's to hoping the massage works miracles and I can get some sleep.

What did y'all do for the back pain?
I teach and have to be on my feet all day and not in the most comfortable shoes, but nothing is really that comfortable these days.
