Time for another bump date! I am officially 25 weeks and starting to feel so much better. I'm almost to my third trimester but I've finally hit that pregnancy bliss and I'm so grateful for it. Here's how we're feeling at 25 weeks...
The craving for sour candy continues. I'm still obsessed and I'm wondering when it's going to let up!? I've also been on a cheeseburger kick as well as a spicy food kick lately. I absolutely love spicy foods but I really try to limit it during pregnancy because of the fear of having severe heartburn. Not a problem so far though and if that's what baby boy wants then that's what baby boy gets!
The Not So Fun Stuff
This little guy is a serious kicker. It's not the fun across the belly kicks yet either, it's the punch my pelvic floor kind of kicks. I didn't really have that with Kai, so this is pretty new for me and wow does it hurt. Sometimes I can even feel it in my hip flexors. It feels like I have a pinch in my hip, which is really uncomfortable. I've also been having some serious sciatic nerve shooting pains too from wherever he is resting inside which makes it hard to walk sometimes.
The FUN Stuff
Ok but baby kicks! Even though they hurt, I'm so happy to feel them. It gives me some much peace of mind and fills my heart up so much to think about the little human that's playing around inside my belly. Caleb can feel his kicks now, too, which is always a favorite part of mine. As women, we're so lucky to experience pregnancy and get these little babies all to ourselves for 9 months, so for our spouses to be able to take part in that small part, too, I think is very special. We've started working on the nursery, too! The theme we chose this time around is the Hundred Acre Wood. It hurt my heart so much to dismantle Kai's Up themed nursery, but now that the room is painted its new color, I'm getting so excited for transforming it for our new little guy.
The Medical Stuff
So I found out at my last appointment that I have a low lying placenta. It's not covering my cervix but it's within 2 in of it. I thankfully don't have any restrictions because of it but it definitely has me nervous. I had a vaginal birth with Kai and while I know a C-section would 100% turn out fine if I had to have one for this baby, it's still unknown territory for me. It's caused me a lot of anxiety but I've tried to pray and meditate through it in hopes that the placenta will move up and we can plan for another vaginal birth again.
