25 Week Bump Board ❤
I sit here giggling as I hear Matt chase around Brayden and tell him to get down off things in the other room. It feels nice to know that my stressful moments are shared. Brayden has been a little monster lately. For some reason he is on strike against all forms of sleep during the day and night. He also realized that when he doesn't get his way the proper way to deal with it is to kick and scream. Not only does he want to eat everything he is not suppose to he has an obsession with anything that belongs to the dog. Dear lord my son thinks he is a dog! I promise I am kidding when I say this but I can't be the only parent digging dog food out of my soon to be toddlers mouth and removing raw hides from wondering hands. Lets face it, they made them so darn cute so they are easy to forgive.
Highlights and lowlights of my pregnancy week 24-25
I actually had a scare this past week the day after Christmas. On Christmas day I had experienced some cramping but wrote it off as just regular cramps from eating to much food and being on the run all day (we had 4 different Christmas' we went to). I woke up in the middle of the night from the pains being more severe throughout my whole stomach not just where period cramps would be located. I figured baby girl was just stretching out and it was round ligament pains because I have been doubling in size the past few weeks. The cramping continued to come on and off the whole next day to the point where I felt like I was going to throw up from the pain. Turns out my body was dehydrated and over worked which all resulted in contractions. Thankfully after taking a warm bath to relax and drinking tons of water I have felt amazing since. I am now determined to stay hydrated and not over stress myself as much. Easier said than done. Other than peeing twice an hour and every time I touch or hear water things have been pretty easy. I still have the random pelvis popping when I go to roll over in bed or stand up but nothing too serious.
This week's big developments: Your baby is beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.
