Hey Everyone! I'm 25 weeks along!
Howdy! I'm sure you realize that I'm back home and back in front of the nursery closet for my weekly photo shoot. I apologize that I didn't get any true "bump photos" while I was away but things were just so crazy that in all honesty I completely forgot about them :-)
In really good news this baby has finally started kicking! It really started (or I really started noticing it) while I was home in Rhode Island. There were several instances late at night that I would be laying in bed and I would feel a distinct "kick" from the baby. There were a few times when I would pull my shirt up and I could actually see my belly shaking! Unfortunately he was only active late at night so on one else really had an opportunity to feel it. When he gets bigger and really starts moving around enough that I can take a video of my belly I will post it up for you all to see!
When I was traveling I also experienced my first illness of this pregnancy. It was only a cold but I really got hit hard with a runny nose and dry cough. I attribute it to being in the airplane with all the recycled air and the constantly changing weather of New England. I didn't realize how much of a bummer it was to not be able to take any medications when you are pregnant! I usually get a mild to moderate case of sinusitis at least once a year and I usually just grab a box of Advil Cold & Sinus and call it a day. This time I just had to suffer through it but luckily it only lasted about a week.
Every day this week it seemed like I had a box on my front stoop from amazon! I can't tell you enough how thankful I am for everyone generosity in helping us get ready for baby!
Things keep progressing wonderfully in my pregnancy, I can't wait to be a mom!
Until next time I remain a happy mama to be!
