Today I’m 25 weeks pregnant! Ever had muscles in your cheeks or thighs jump or jiggle? That’s currently what the kicks are feeling like. We’re going to have to pick up some more pillows because my hips are starting to get sore when I sleep on my sides. I have to keep a rotation going throughout the night. I started using my BabyPlus on January 21st. I’m not sure if I can keep up with using it two times a day, but I’ll try. I will be following up with a review.
According to Baby Center, at 25 weeks I should do the following: Dedicate time to your partner this week. Treat your partner to a romantic surprise. Write down all the things you love about him, tell him why you think he’ll be a great dad, or just go for a stroll while holding hands. Take time to connect on a physical and emotional level and celebrate what connects you and makes you love one another. Try to do something at least once a week for 30 minutes that clearly communicates the importance of your partner in your life, says clinical psychologist Diane Sanford.
Next week we go for the glucose test so I’ll be sure to mention how icky it was. I’m hoping that we can get some more ultrasound pictures taken. I want to see my buddha’s face again! I’m not sure just how many more of these weekly updates that I can do since so little can happen in a week, but I’ll try my hardest to keep up!
