25 weeks pregnant update!

Hello everyone. I feel it's time for another update, a lot has been happening and I want to share this journey with everyone as well as for myself to be able to look back and reminisce. I can't believe I have 3 weeks until the last trimester, and 15 weeks until my due date! So far I'm not scared at all, I'm actually excited about giving birth and if I could I'd do it now; but he needs to stay cooking for a little while longer :)

The second scan at 22 weeks and 2 days
So my pregnancy is going pretty well; the sickness has subsided for the last 3-4 weeks and my appetite has started to come back a little and I've gained a total of 4lbs so far. I've been told I'm smaller than expected for 25 weeks, but I've definitely gotten bigger the last few days (it literally felt overnight!). I've had so many compliments from people at work about my little bump and how well I look, which is really nice and does boost my confidence. I bought two maternity dresses from New Look which I really like, one is knee length and one is floor length, but for this heat they will be my best friends before long! The heartburn has gotten a lot better (even though I have heartburn as I'm typing this...).

I've had no cravings still, but because I've had barely an appetite I've been mainly living off cookie crisp cereal, mini cheddars and ice lollies. I've been trying my best to keep hydrated especially at work. I've had aches and pains in various places including my back, stomach, hips, knee, and feet; but a new pain is my groin and it isn't pleasant at all. I've not been constipated which is great, and I hope it stays that way! He has been wiggling around constantly, I can see them all over the place and it's such a weird yet wonderful feeling. The main place I keep updated with my life including the pregnancy is my Instagram which is now private but you're welcome to follow me, it's more to keep certain nosy people from sniffing around where they don't belong.

This was taken at 24 weeks and 6 days.
My cat Shiloh always used to sit/sleep on my stomach, but she's had to settle for my lap instead.
I'm not sure how often I will be able to update you guys, but I will try my best. I will be moving into my new place hopefully before he is born, and I'm not sure whether I'll have internet there or not. However once I've set up my new place and have everything organised (the nesting 'symptom' is real, and for people like me who love to organise things... its even worse and driving me crazy because I can't do anything yet!!), I will do a whole post on it to show you all :)

Take care! Love Abby x
