25 Weeks

So, 25 weeks. Wow, it really has flown by!

I am not at the stage where I start to get uncomfortable if I sit or stand for too long (I can only imagine this is going to get worse :( ), they are especially bad if I spend too long in bed. Bye bye sleep-ins, the leg cramps make sure of that! However there is a tiny little being who makes it all worth it when they give me a good solid kicking. Those kicks melt my heart, and now they melt the husbands heart as he can feel them.

My belly has expanded, and now gets in the way when trying to do certain tasks, like hug the husband. But it has overtaken the boobs in the stakes of who sticks out the most, a race I am glad is over, as I was starting to get scared that my already ample bosom would not stop growing!

There are several things that a 25 week pregnant woman shouldn't do
  • climb ladders under door frames - seems you quickly forget that frame above your head. Slightly annoying when there is no-one around to rub my head better for me
  • indulge in paddlpops for dinner - even if they do call your name
  • try and fit into their regular clothes - it is depressing
  • mow the lawns after work. Not only because it is damn hard work, but you end up looking like this

Now, for the important things - what do you think: Girl or Boy?

  1. You look amazing my dear friend xxx

  2. I agree with everything except the paddle pops- you are totally entitled to eat those for dinner!

    Leg cramps are the worst, I remember waking up once screaming in pain, DH thought I was in labour and had started to get up to grab a bag and get the car started! LOL. I found the best way to get rid of them was to sit on the side of the bed, toes pointing down, and try and push my heels towards the floor. Heaps and heaps and heaps of water made a difference too.

  3. You look gorgeous!!!! I am thinking boy :)

    God I was in pain the whole time I was pregnant and yes the leg cramps would have me screaming out in pain at night! But as you said, those kicks are just so amazing! I also loved later in pregnancy when bubs stretches their limbs out of your tummy - gorgeous! I could feel actual toes - so cool!
