Another week has flown by and here we are at 25 weeks pregnant! This week baby boy weighs 1.5lb and is roughly 13.5inches long. I feel that I look really big in this weeks bump photo, but I had just eaten a huge breakfast! My bump is definitely filling out more and I can no longer hide it under my clothes. I can't believe how quick I've grown this pregnancy compared to last but mind you last time I was working 70+ hours a week and not really eating much. These days you will find me pigging out on the sofa ha ha!
Yesterday would have been my due date with my previous pregnancy, it's crazy to think that if the pregnancy had continued then I could either have a newborn in my arms or be over my due date. I am however very lucky that I am now 25 weeks into this pregnancy. It's just crazy!
Baby boy has been far more active this week, and I can see the kicks through my clothes when he's kicking away. I still don't remember being able to see Amelia's movement this early last time but maybe my memory isn't that great. It doesn't help when he's kicking on my bladder either as it already feels small as it is! I feel like i'm needing to empty my bladder all day long.
I've not been hungry at all in the evenings and could quite easily go without eating anything. I've just got to remind myself that I still need to eat, so tend to force something down me. I can quite happily snack on chocolate or crisps but when it comes to a meal I just don't seem to have much of an appetite at all and it gets wasted. No weight gain to report this week which I'm not concerned about as I'm still pigging out throughout the day. My next midwife appointment is coming up at 28 weeks which I'm quite glad about as my last one was at 16 weeks so it seems quite some time in between. I still need to get my MATB1 too which I was suppose to receive at 20 weeks but of course with no appointment how am I expected to get it?
I'm finding that I'm starting to forget things already... here comes the pregnancy brain! It's almost happened over night as last week I was fine. These past few days I'll have something on my mind that I need to do or jot down and I instantly forget it. I'm also finding it harder to bend down to put socks on and have to remind myself that there is a bump in the way.
