Pregnancy Update: 25 Weeks

How many weeks are you now?
25 Weeks + 6 Days

Baby's size?

Rutabaga - per the What to Expect app

Wellll...I'm sick with "the crud bug" once again. It began over the weekend and has lingered since. It stinks not being able to take anything but oh will all pass soon enough (I just hope it's in time for Christmas).

Also, I made a phone call to my MD's office this week because I was having a lot of lower pelvic pressure and soreness. I convinced myself I was in early labor and would have to spend the holidays in the hospital (dramatic much? YES). I also learned my limitations on pushing wheelchairs...well, that won't happen again until after the baby comes. I'm pretty sure that's what contributed to some of the discomfort I was experiencing. Thankfully, the nurse who called me back was super nice and didn't make me feel crazy with my questions. She also recommended a support band to wear while on my feet.

After asking a few friends and even facebook for recommendations, I ordered a band from Amazon to wear while exercising. The doctor's office also recommended a band from Target for all-day use - I purchased it that afternoon and it's made a huge difference! (Just in case anyone's interested, this is the band I purchased from Target.)

Not since Sunday's 5K. I've been resting up, trying to recuperate from this crud mess.


I haven't been able to taste food well this week so nope. Haha!

Still fish. I've been around it again and I can't even sit at the same table as someone eating it. When it happened over the weekend, I had to keep my head down and not look at them or their plate. Pregnancy is a strange thing and I don't think you fully understand until you've been there. No fish. I can't handle it. Don't bring it anywhere near me or around me. I've even told my friends that if they are interested in eating fish for dinner, just don't invite me - my feelings won't be hurt, I promise.

This week I had a few nights where I woke up midway through the night and couldn't fall back asleep. Guess the insomnia is starting to hit! 

Baby Seal's first ornament! It was an etsy purchase and I love it!!

What I miss:
Besides the obvious (running fast and free)...sleeping on my back and stomach are definitely two others.

What I’m looking forward to:
Christmas this week!! :D

Best Moment of the Week:
Spending time with family for the holiday week!

Happy Christmas Eve!! :)

Did you have a support belt you wore during pregnancy? If so, what was the brand/type?


  1. Looking great mama! I'm in the home stretch and cannot wait to sleep on my stomach again too! I never ended up with a support belt, but did find that good compression pants helped too. Hope you're feeling better soon!

  2. That ornament is so precious! Merry Christmas!

  3. You know I love the prenatal cradle mini cradle!
