How far along: 25 weeks.
Symptoms: Still a bit achey, especially round the sides of my bump. It’s a really odd feeling. It’s hard to separate the emotional upset feelings from actual pregnancy symptoms. When you don’t want to eat much and aren’t getting much sleep, it tends to make you feel worse anyway so it’s hard to say whether you feel rubbish because of something to do with the pregnancy or just general feeling meh, with a capital M. My blood pressure still seems to be low as well, because I keep getting those spots/stars round the side of my vision. I am SO TIRED. It’s hit a whole new level this week. I struggle to keep my eyes open all day.
Food Cravings: Just strawberries and fizzy strawberry laces.
Movement: Lots and lots and lots of movement. This little bean burger is much more active than it’s big sister was. Little I was really strong and quite violent when she was in my tummy, but she didn’t move around as much as this little one. This one is constantly kicking and squirming around all day and appears to sleep when I sleep – so that’s a good start (ha!).
Sleep: When I’m in bed, I’m out for the count, but I don’t seem to be getting into bed early enough. I think I need a lot more sleep. It’s just trying to find the time.
Stretch Marks: Nope and I’ll hopefully have another skincare brand to share with you soon.
Miss Anything: My husband :(:(:( – he deployed this week.
Best Moment: Having a lovely time back at the Rectory Retreat Airbnb as a family. It was nice to have the time just as us before he went.
Worst Moment: Saying goodbye to Rob.
Looking forward to: My mum coming to stay for the weekend to cheer Little I and me up.
