Pregnancy update – 25 weeks

How far along: 25 weeks + 5 day

Due Date: 15 May 2022

Baby size: Whatever an acorn squash is.

Weight gain: None. I gained 1kg in the last month but I had previously lost some weight.

Maternity clothes: Yes! A pair of maternity pants, nursing bras and maternity tights. Still wearing all my pre-pregnancy dresses.

Stretch marks: Nothing new.

Sleep: Wonderful, can’t get enough. My dreams are quite wild, though.

Gender: Girl!

Best moment: She reacts to us tapping and talking to my belly.

Looking forward to: Her being here and watching Rui be a dad.

Food cravings: Strawberries. Coca cola.

What I miss: Strawberries. And just being able to order a salad.

Symptoms: Well, they’re here. Hemorrhoids. Sorry if this is TMI. I was told to expect them but I never thought they would come so soon. My pelvis and breasts are quite painful too and I’ve been having some heartburn.

Mood: Worried because her nursery is not yet ready. Nesting mode on.

The highs: Feeling her moving and buying her things.

The lows: How I moan every time I have to turn in bed.

    • Hey! Thanks for stopping by. Strawberries are not super expensive here but my doctor told me they’re a forbidden food because they grown on the ground and are very hard to wash properly (because of all the seeds) and therefore a high risk food for toxoplasmosis. I’ve told my husband he’ll have to immediately go and buy me strawberries after I give birth lol
