25 Weeks: My Little Rockstar

How far along? 25 weeks...4 days pregnant with you. 

Maternity clothes: I've just come out of wearing work uniform.. now wearing my own clothes! Rather then buying maternity clothes I've been buying a couple of dress sizes up.. Wearing mostly baggy tops and leggings.

Stretch marks: I have small stretch marks on my left breast... they've been there for a while but I honestly don't really mind them. I've been using Palmers stretch mark cream every day! 

Sleep: Has been quite a bit more disrupted then just my normal toilet trips during the night this week... I've found it hard to get comfortable, I've woken up to you kicking me a few times which sometimes hurts and at times makes me jump! I've also found that because I am going to bed on a full stomach usually, I feel tight chested and completely bloated which at times makes me feel like I'm struggling to breathe!

Best moment this week: Someone I didn't know commented on my bump for the first time this week which made me smile :O)!  It's something to do with being a proud mum-to-be that makes us pregnant women happy when random people notice our growing bump. My bump has grown a lot this week, which is really lovely to see because it means you're growing big and strong!

Miss anything? Not really.. Though I guess it would be nice to have a small glass of WKD blue once you are born! 

Movement: LOTS and LOTS! Daddy reckons that you may well become a Rock Star when you're older.... as it feels like you're doing a whole lot of partying in there!
Food cravings: I haven't had any cravings at all.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope

Gender: Our 20 week scan told us that.. you're a little boy! :) However, we are waiting until our next scan which is 22nd January for confirmation before we fully trust the ultrasound as we've heard a few stories where the ultrasound scans have been inaccurate with the gender, so I'm impatiently waiting for your next scan! I honestly don't mind either way, I just want for you to be a healthy happy baby!

Labour signs: No

Symptoms: My upper right arm went numb on Monday, almost like I had a 'dead arm'. I've had very itchy breasts and an itchy stomach.. I've read this is due to the skin stretching over the bump. 

Belly button in or out? Mostly out, more so after I've just eaten. Though it's not all the way out just yet.

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy

Looking forward to: Our next scan and starting your nursery.. I can't wait!
