Today I am officially 25 weeks pregnant, and it’s my one of my favorite months of the year! Time seems to be flying by since coming into the glorious second trimester. I seriously don’t know where time is going, but I’m so thankful that we are one month closer to meeting him and that things are going great so far.
Baby| Is the size of a head of cauliflower and weighs about 1.5 pounds. He moves and kicks like crazy which makes me so so happy because it eases my anxiety. Joe is finally able to feel the baby kick from the outside which we are both loving.
Fun Moment| We went to Target this past weekend and registered for our baby shower! Honestly it was so much fun picking out all of the baby boy things.
Symptoms| I think I’m FINALLY in that second trimester groove of feeling like a normal human again! The only complaint I have is not sleeping well, I’ve started having really bad hip pain at night mixed with insomnia – but honestly I’m just so happy to not feel sick anymore! I also feel like I’m walking differently which is really weird to say.
Cravings| Lately I have an intense craving for fruit loops mostly at night. It seems to be sticking around, so I’m just accepting it and eating the fruit loops.
Coming Up| I have my next OB appointment coming up soon and he mentioned it will be when I take my glucose test. Crossing my fingers I pass the first time. Also, this will be the last time I see my doctor every month and move to twice a month appointments(!!!)
Purchases| We have our car seat! I also know what stroller we plan on getting. As far as clothing, my mom has really spoiled baby with the cutest clothes so we’re not buying a ton! At the moment we’re getting everything planned for our baby shower, but after the shower and seeing what we still need is when we will do the majority of the shopping!
Feeling| A lot of anxiety these days. After more health concerns at the dermatologist and having to wait on procedures until after I give birth is really nerve wracking. I’m already an anxious person, so add hormones and some days are really hard. I also go back and forth between wanting baby here but knowing how much I’m going to miss feeling him and having him all to myself.
That’s pretty much it for this time! If I keep at my rate of doing a bumpdate every 5 weeks I’ll only have 2 or 3 more to do! Which seems so crazy. Don’t forget to keep up on Instagram where I (try) and do weekly bumpdate photos and a small update!
