25 Weeks Pregnant [Baby Number 2]


Due Date: June 28th, 2017

Mood: This week has been pretty rough, mood wise. I have been really anxious, but more so at night. Sometimes I don't even know what I am anxious about, but majority of the time it comes back to the same thing. I have so much anxiety about giving birth, my labour with Emily wasn't easy or straight forward, so that in itself is worrying. I'm also worried about leaving Emily, I have spoke about this numerous times, and it is potentially something I will blog about in more details, but I have never left Emily. So the idea of being away from her while I give birth is terrifying. I know that she is in good hands, and the person who will be watching her is a person I trust more than anyone. It's also a person who Emily has a really good relationship with. I'm just so worried about her feeling abandoned.

Symptoms: I have really been struggling with tiredness this week. I feel like I constantly want to sleep, which I suppose isn't that uncommon - but boy its hard to find motivation when you just want to lay down and do nothing. I have also been on a cleaning spree, I never really had that nesting faze with Emily, I put it down to the fact I didn't have my own home. This time, mess is driving me crazy, I am constantly cleaning, and washing clothing or re-organizing things. I think I'm driving everyone mad. I'm still being sick, but it seems to be slowing down a little (dare I say it). Also, I have a better appetite which is nice, because I am beginning to enjoy food again.

Sleep: Although I am absolutely shattered all the time, I still can't sleep. I either can't get comfortable or I fall asleep and get woken by Emily. She is still quite poorly with a cold, so she has been waking herself up coughing all night. I must say its a good job I am a insomniac, and I am used to functioning on little to no sleep. 

Movement: Baby E is very active, although she seems to be a little stubborn. If you touch my bump, she stops moving or kicking. If Emily puts her hand on my belly and starts talking to her, she immediately starts kicking and moving about.

Food Cravings: ice pops! It seems like such a odd thing to be craving, and funny enough I craved the same thing when I was pregnant with Emily.

Gender: It's a GIRL!

Highlight of the week: Buying lots of baby clothing in the next sale! I managed to get some absolutely gorgeous bits. I think I pretty much have everything I need clothes wise now, except socks! I'm not sure how I forgot about socks.

Looking forward to: Meeting our baby girl and this pregnancy being over. I am really not a good pregnant person. 

Baby Development: Week 26: your baby will respond to sound now and she may even move in rhythm to music.
