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.
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.
