week's 23& 24 pregnancy update's
I am now 25 week's pregnant , i really can not believe how fast this pregnancy is going by! I have totally forgot to take any bump photo's lately - i am blaming baby brain! so here is a quick update on what week's 23 and 24 of my pregnancy were like.
I have had my fortnightly midwife appointment and everything is fine my blood pressure is still normal thanks to my blood pressure medication and we got to hear baby's heartbeat which i love. Baby is getting so much more active now i get really big kicks and i can see my belly move i even feel when baby has hiccups , baby is defiantly getting into a pattern of kicking normally not long after i have ate i will get kicked for a while i think it must like being fed! Bath time is always fun too as baby likes the bath and wriggles and kicks lots and also when i go to bed it thinks it is play time and kicks nonstop for about 45 minutes. I actually am starting to feel pregnant at last which is crazy as i have a bump and have felt baby moving inside me for age's but it just did not seem real until recently and now i really do feel pregnant and i am really starting to look forward to baby arriving.
We still have not picked a baby name though we have a boy name but no girl name at all as we have gone off the few names that we had picked out . We haven't started baby shopping yet either but i have made a list of what we need which is a start i suppose. I cant wait to start baby shopping and buy lots of cute baby things it is one of the best parts of pregnancy i just love buying for my children they are better dressed then i am these days.
I am really starting to enjoy being pregnant lately after having two horrible previous pregnancy's this one has been so lovely and straightforward and enjoyable.
how i am feeling
I am feeling pretty great i am loving every minute of this pregnancy. I have had the odd bout of morning sickness but on a night time not a morning ,but fingers crossed it seems to be passing. My skin and hair are still looking better then ever and i have loads of energy. I haven't had any craving's and no mood swings or tears. Although i have been getting more stressed lately of thing's that would not normally bother me. We applied for Chloe a passport renewal a few weeks ago as she is meant to be going away on a last minute holiday to Spain but it hasn't come back yet and it is impossible to get through to Durham passport office to see whats happening and i have been worrying about it nonstop which i wouldn't normally do. Also when i resigned from work they have put the wrong day on my p45 so i don't know if i will qualify for maternity pay and this has been worrying me a lot as well. I think i need to try and relax more, i have been thinking of going for some kind of pregnancy spa day but that's probably just wishful thinking i can do something like that with two children to look after.
I am still suffering from sciatica pain but thankfully it is nowhere near as bad as it was in my last pregnancy and i haven't had any more pelvic pain so hopefully i wont develop spd again this time either. I have been feeling a little bit dizzy now and then but i think that is probably just down to my blood pressure medication .I am still getting the odd cramp in my leg's and foot but walking alot and keeping my feet up when resting are helping as i have not been getting them as much as i was. I think i have been quiet lucky so far in this pregnancy as i have sailed through it with no problem's at all i really hope i dont regret saying that.
