25 WEEK UPDATE


So i'm feeling like this pregnancy is going so fast! I cannot believe I am 26 weeks tomorrow. I say this every week but I can't believe how quickly the next week comes around.
She's growing so quickly and I saw myself in a full length mirror in just my underwear on Friday for the first time this pregnancy and I couldn't believe how big my bump looks without clothes on.

I weighed myself for the first time since 10 weeks today and I have gained 14lbs in this pregnancy, which is impressive with my bump size, but then I have lost weight and have been a little more sensible with what I have been eating. Thankfully. I refuse to gain as much weight as I did with Lucas' pregnancy.

I have noticed her movements have become bigger and more impressive. The other day I was eating 20 chicken nuggets, as you do, I have been a little naughty sometimes with what I eat, and she was making me feel like I was on a rollercoaster. It was so strange.
I do adore the big movements and love how much she moves my belly.

This week i've been mostly struggling with the heat, it's been horrendous and I sweat my make up off in minutes, it's horrible, especially when we went to a wedding on Saturday and I wanted to look nice. I am finding I really HATE summer this year too. I am an Autumn/Winter girl, I hate Summer at the best of times, especially now i'm already a human oven. Baking a baby, whilst, you're baking is horrific.

We saw the midwife this week too, all is okay with me, heard her heartbeat again and she measured my stomach and i'm measuring a week ahead, so not bad considering I think Lucas was measuring 3-4 weeks ahead a lot of the time. On 3 weekly midwife appointments now and got my next scan at 28 weeks too!
Lucas also said "sister" when the midwife was listening to her heartbeat. He also says "baby Iris" and "mummy's baby" as well as "sister" It's rather adorable.


BABY IS THE SIZE OF:  A rutabaga... and by ovia she's the size of a baseball glove!
IM LOOKING FORWARD TO: My next scan! I hope she's turned and my placenta has moved, I am also nervous about this appointment too.
MY FAVOURITE MOMENT WAS: Having my stomach measured, I love knowing how big my bump is.
I HAVE BEEN FEELING: Poorly with a cold, but nothing major, did have some projectile vomiting sessions during the first couple of days.
I HAVE BEEN BUYING FOR BABY: A few items in the Next sale and in their new autumn range. I mean some proper cute autumn bits.
IM CRAVING: Sponges, whenever I see one I want to bite it... I haven't but it's strange.
IM LOVING: Lucas knowing about his sister.
I'VE BEEN MEANING TO: Measure my waste and bump in inches.
