Baby is up to the 9 inch mark, and about a pound and a half. I am still blown away that something so tiny still can seem so big. When my belly is moving around, it feels like the baby is huge! Tonight, baby seems to be changing positions again. I am fairly certain that, for the moment at least, baby is laying sideways in there. My stomach is stretched sideways in this oblong shape right now. It’s a pretty big week for baby right now. Air sacs will develop in baby’s lungs this week and help prepare for baby’s first breath!!!
I was told again this week that I look huge, way bigger than what I should look like. I kind of want to punch people in the face. My doctor even said I looked great, average. I don’t feel like I look abnormally large. After all, I am 25 weeks along, not 12! Most weeks, I feel pretty good, most days even. It seems that at least once a week though, my hips hurt so much. Most of the time, my back as well. To the point where it is insanely hard to change positions. Standing up is a real chore. It seemed to help a lot to go to the chiropractor last week, so I think I will start going weekly and see if that helps.
We should probably hop back on the name train and see if we can come up with a boy name that we like in the event that baby is a boy. Haha. I can’t believe how hard it is for us to come up with a boys name we like. The girls name was easy for us.
Another really pleasant pregnancy symptom that I’m experiencing is one I had with Charlie’s pregnancy as well. My boobs would throb, ache so badly when I was cold. Today was a really windy, chilly day out. Temp said 60’s, but with the cool wind, it didn’t feel like it. I wanted to cry from how bad my boobs were hurting me!
