25 weeks


One more week until the third trimester! Wow. I am getting so uncomfortable already though. Sleeping is not great, and just feeling my heavy belly. Since the baby was already measuring at about 2 pounds in the ultrasound (it's supposed to be about 1 1/2 right now), I think it's going to be a larger one. Ultrasound measurements can be way off though, and it was moving around an awful lot, so probably hard to get an accurate weight. I'll just not worry about it (so hard to do!).

I've been feeling not very good in the mornings. I was trying to figure out if it was related to my blood sugar, blood pressure, iron levels, or what. I think I've settled on my iron levels. I've been taking my iron pills, but I know I need to add more iron into my diet. The kids and I drank a spinach/parsley/orange juice drink, which was yummy and really good for iron absorption. Hopefully that will help if I continue it every day.

I've been pretty tired again too, napping in the afternoons definitely helps. The kids have been waking up super early, which doesn't help! Haha

Changes this week: Getting huge and uncomfortable. My splint helps a lot.

Cravings this week: Toast

  1. I don't know why you and I have (had) big babies!! I was my mom's biggest at 8 lb, 7 oz. Her other babies were from 6 lbs (Mike - she worked in a smoke filled office and almost lost him) to 7 lbs, 11 oz (David). Praying for your iron and rest needs!! Love you so much!!
