Are you shocked? I’m actually doing an update like I said I would, and although I’m technically 25 weeks as of today; at least I’m getting this up here.
This belly just feels like it’s getting bigger by the day now. I’m still feeling pretty good overall. I’m working a bunch right now so I’m extra tired from that, and my back is getting a bit achy, but pregnancy wise I’m feeling good!
My craving this week is Iced Chai Lattes, I know they aren’t the greatest thing to have during pregnancy (there are a couple herbs/spices in them that aren’t recommended), so I’ve tried to hold back on this one, but I have had a couple. I also craved buttered popcorn this week, it was one of those cravings that once you have it once or twice it was satisfied, but I figured it was worth mentioning.
Also worth mentioning is that I have been having Braxton Hicks for a few weeks now, but I didn’t know that’s what they were! At my midwife appointment (I’ll do a post about “birth choices” soon) she was poking around feeling how things were in the belly and she asked if I could feel the tightness she was and told me that those were Braxton Hicks Contractions. For some reason I thought those happened later in pregnancy, then I realized I’m pretty far into this pregnancy at this point! A few more weeks and I’ll be in the third trimester! It is crazy how fast this time has gone by! Baby was also head down at the appointment for what I think was the first time ever (and I don’t think he/she stayed that way for long!), but it was reassuring to know that baby knows HOW to get into position, even if it changes a thousand times before “the big day”.
Overall I just feel so so blessed to be pregnant and to get to experience this, it is SO amazing and kind of blows my mind that there is another living being inside of me.
See you next week!
