23, 24, and 25 Weeks
How Far Along: Currently just hit 25 Weeks
Size of baby: 23 (large mango) 24 (ear of corn), and 25 (rutabaga) weeks
Maternity Clothes: All maternity
Weight Gain: probably around 15-18 lbs. I am SOOO swollen, so I am hoping a lot of this is water weight! HA!
Movement: I feel movement all the time, but it is still pretty low. I asked the doctor about this and he said it was normal after the first pregnancy because your stomach muscles are not what they use to be (Really!!?- I had NO idea!).
Sleep: I sleep okay, but I have to turn over all the time because of back pain and of course I get up a few times to use the bathroom.
Symptoms: Boy has this changed! I have reflux if I eat right before bed. My feet and hands are swollen almost always. I had this with Andrew, so I don’t see it going away. I stay on my feet all day, so I am sure that is not helping. I am still have pretty severe lower back and hip pains by the end of the day. I am also at the point where I am HOT all the time!
Cravings: I still stay thirsty and crave ice cream and anything cold!
Best moment this week: Listening to her heartbeat (149bpm) and winning a FREE 3D Ultrasound!! I can’t wait to see her!
Wow what a change!
