How far along? Week 25 and 3 day!
Total weight gain: 21 pounds or 1 stone, 7 lbs
Started at 143 lbs. Am now 164 lbs and am 4 lbs over recommended weight gain.
Maternity clothes? Yes. Am still using my normal tube skirts and dresses but got some clothes from a relative this weekend. they are much too big for me but the leggings are perfect for lounging around house and exercising. Still searching for that perfect nursing night dress for hospital but I think Mother care are probably going to be where I go!
Yes! DH is well able to see and feel movements too. I was filming my bump and its movements last night. Very cute!
Best moment this week:
Me and DH finally looked at the clutter in the office that we had been buying and collecting for baby and sorted it out. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed so he helped me organise stuff in piles like baby hospital bag and home pile! I still need a few things for my own hospital bag but all in good time!
Also, reaching the third trimester at 25 weeks was pretty cool. I feel so proud that I have had a healthy and happy pregnancy to date!
Miss anything? No!
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off: On. Though, my hands may start the bloating as they are going numb all through the night.
Happy or moody most of the time: happy as feeling healthy and fit. Walking 3km every day and swimming too.
Looking forward to: Consultant appointment this week. My new JU JU Be baby changing backpack arrived so looking forward to packing that! Friends coming up for weekend so can’t wait to see them.
Food cravings: no. Can’t say I’ve ever had real cravings.
Anything making you queasy or sick? No.
Gender: not finding out.
Symptoms: movements and tightening of bottom of stomach and some pressure to go toilet more during the day. Also, numbness at night.
Labour signs: no! Far too soon.
