Week 25

This week the baby is the size of a head of cauliflower. When Belle is moving and kicking she feels a little bigger than that. I am enjoying everyone getting to feel her move and squirm. My kids love to kiss my belly! My two toddlers play so well together I am a little concerned that they will not be so welcoming of a new little person into their group.

Emotions- I have cried most recently just from fatigue. While I am closing in on my third trimester, I usually had the most energy during my 4th-7th month. I have a few nesting spells, but mostly more fatigue than anything.

Cravings- Bacon! I am trying not to over indulge, but it is just so good! ;)

Discussion Question- Let me share first what was going on, and then I will tell you what was said. I was in labor with my first son. I was about four or five pushes away from him being out, after 25 hours of labor, an hour and a half of pushing. The only person I have allowed in the room is my husband. He is standing next to me, there are two nurses waiting for the baby, my nurse who is holding my leg, another nurse holding my other leg, another nurse pushing on my stomach, a tech, and my doctor. I am extremely tired and trying to push with all the might I have left. It is at this point my doctor (who is of course just standing there) decides to announce to the room that he "would never do this", and sweet husband says he would not do it either. At the moment all I could think was right now, really are we having this conversation right now! Now looking back at all that happened I am sure he was trying to lighten the mood, but at the time it was not so funny.

I will post an update after my doctor's appointment and my glucose test. That stuff tastes nasty, but my current prayer is just to keep it down!
