25 Weeks Pregnant

How far along: 25 weeks
Total weight: Boo, I'm so rubbish, 4 weeks in a row that I haven't weighed myself, I promise I will weigh myself tomorrow.
Stretch marks: I have stretch marks appearing, :( boo, I bought some 'Palmers cocoa butter formula massage lotion for stretch marks', but unfortunately I can't use it because it contains Almond oil, I have a nut allergy, and it will irritate my skin. I've been searching for a nut-free one, with no success so far. If you have any recommendations please leave it below in the comments.
Sleep: Last night was the first night in about 3 weeks where I actually got sleep, I slept from 9pm all the way to 6am! brilliant! I was so refreshed, and happy. 

Best moments this week: buying more clothes for Baby E!
Miss anything: I miss my old clothes :( my jeans and t-shirts! now every time I go out I feel like a walking billboard, everyone looks at the bump!
Movement: Silly question, as you will know if you read my blog. I have a little footballer in there, she doesn't stop kicking!!
Gender: Girl
Labour signs: Too early
Symptoms: I haven't really had any, This week I had 2 days out of 7 where I felt really sick, apart from that I've been okish. A backache, I also have been suffering from insomnia, Apart from the one night mentioned above. However, I've always suffered from insomnia.
How do I feel: Excited about the baby coming, but I'm feeling really anxious a lot of the time, going to busy places on my own is definitely a no go at the moment. 
Belly button in or out: in
Wedding ring on or off: on

How your baby grows
Week 25: Deep inside her gums the buds that will form your baby's adult teeth are starting to develop.


Previous bump updates


  1. I used the Boots Expert stretch mark oil...I'm not sure if it has almond oil in it or not, but I escaped with just two tiny marks (although I'm not sure if that was the oil or just luck). Good luck in finding something x

  2. Try Clarins body oil. Its expensive, but amazing!
