Week 24 &25 have been full of ups and downs. This is totally normal for pregnancy. They were racing by as they were full of grade cards, permanent file filling, spring concerts, a doctor’s visit, trips with my class to the FFA farm, and the husband’s big birthday. I didn’t know which way was up but it was a very nice couple of weeks. Yep, it’s true- summer is at my doorstep and walking right into my life. I couldn’t be more ecstatic about it!!!
Week 24 major up
The husnband and I went to go see The Avengers as an early birthday outing. The little one went crazy during the movie! The husband loved that our little one was just as crazy about the movie as he was.
Week 24 down
I still will randomly get sick. I was reading to my kids during week 24 and had to run out of the classroom to puke. It is just so random. I’m honestly not complaining- I couldn’t be luckier because I feel pretty great most of the time.
Week 25 major up
The baby always seems to know when daddy touches my stomach because the little one will give him several good punches to let him know that he loves him too. We can generally count on baby showing daddy some love most nights when I lay down for the day. I love sharing the experience with the amazing husband!
Week 25 downs
I haven’t seen my family in what seems to be forever! I miss them and I know my mom is dying to see the growing bump in person and get to feel the baby kick for her…. Also, there are days when Baby H doesn’t feel the need to move around quite as much. It always makes me worried when I have a couple of days where she/he doesn’t constantly let me know things are okay. Or, I just need to slow down to feel the love- that is part of it too.
Let me explain this one- for weeks 24 & 25 my pelvis literally feels as if it is broken/has a crack right down the middle. It is causing me to waddle sometimes and wince in pain when I get up. Totally sucks.
I have gotten quite a bit bigger as of the last 10 weeks and I think the shifting body is not okay with me trying to keep things as to what was normal before. I know my body is changing and I’m trying to embrace it- I truly want to do what is right for the little growing bun in the oven. I don’t know if my hips are widening and I need to treat them with care or what the heck is going on with the pelvis…. I’m unsure if this is normal and something I just need to push through or something I need to treat as an injury or something that is wrong. Funny how being pregnant makes you second guess everything.
I took a few days to just walking and I know I need to incorporate more stretching into my daily routines. I have always been reallllllly bad at the whole stretching thing. I’m hoping that week 26 will bring a better feeling pelvis…. Anyone else that has been pregnant know what I’m talking about with the feeling of the broken pelvis?
