25 weeks

Today marks the 25th week of this pregnancy. Here's what's been going on:

  • Weight gain is still minimal if any. According to my scale at home, I've gained 0.2 lbs since my last OB appointment.

  • I'm sore. I'm feeling the RLP now. When I stand, my uterus feels so heavy...almost like it's going to fall out of me! I find myself walking around with my hands under my belly just to get some support (and my belly isn't even a quarter as large as what Denise was carrying around, girl, I don't know how you did it!)

  • My back also hurts. My sciatica on my right side is acting up.
  • My nose hurts. I've had a "mucous" issue the last few months...something my OB said is normal. So I'm constantly blowing my nose...that combined with the dry air at home and work, have cut up the inside of my nose. I actually have scabs! (I know TMI, sorry!)
  • Baby girl moves mostly at night when I'm getting ready for bed. I love lying down in bed and feeling her moving around.

Other than that, not much else has been going on. DH is still working on the will be forthcoming.

I hope you get more comfortable! I can't wait to see nursery pictures.

The belly bra helped a lot, but I still walked around carrying my belly!

If you can, take a bath every once in awhile. Feels good to be somewhat weightless in the water.

Try the belly brand, which is probably the same as a belly bra.

My girl friend said w/her boys she had a constant runny nose! I can't imagine it during the winter though. OUCH. Try a humidifier at night, that will help some.
