(High from Previous Navy!)

My mind thinks by way of being pregnant weeks, however I noticed not too long ago that I’ve crossed the six month mark! I’m 25 weeks this week (so near 26!) I haven’t carried out a lot to arrange for child’s arrival since my Nesting submit. It’s time to get on that I suppose! Fortunately we don’t must do an excessive amount of to prepare for a new child. The nursery wants quite a lot of updates, however there isn’t a rush on these since he’ll be in our room for some time. However I’d nonetheless wish to have the nursery prepared for downstairs diaper modifications and storage of toys and issues sooner fairly than later.

Flashing again to 22 weeks


I maintain a operating listing of issues to say in these examine in posts, and after I sit down to jot down them I typically discover myself going to Child KERF to see what I wrote final time. Practically each time I snigger out loud at how comparable my feedback are.

In my Midway submit I wrote: “I’m turning ‘pregnant on the perimeters,’ which means I can really feel my uterus on the perimeters and I’m feeling extra three dimensional as an alternative of 1 flat airplane.”

And in my 23 Weeks submit with Mazen I wrote: “I’ve seen on walks and issues that I’m beginning to get sides to my bump and it’s onerous – abs at work! Some days the highest layer is extra jiggle-prone, however different instances it’s agency and onerous. It’s like my abs are in 3D now!”

I actually haven’t any recollection of what my signs had been round now with Mazen, however I laughed once more when my notes for week 23 stated “nosebleeds and again ache persist” and in my submit with Mazen I wrote: “I’m nonetheless having a handful of signs: nosebleeds and decrease again ache being the worst two.”

My SI joint is definitely WAY higher (thanks chiropractor). In truth, I haven’t even thought of it in any respect previously two weeks. I’m truly pondering that it was my excessive impression exercises that was bothering it greater than something. As an alternative, I had aching glutes for per week or two. I might get up feeling like my glutes lifted 100 kilos all night time they had been simply soooo drained. However I believe I found out what the reason for that was: the pillow between my legs! Once I used a brilliant skinny pillow on the seaside my aches when away. My thicker pillow at dwelling will need to have been conserving my legs too far aside to completely calm down. I’ve additionally tried sleeping on my abdomen on the Snoogle since we final spoke, and that was enjoyable for a bit, however I’m discovering that this week simply having the minimal pillow and in any other case midway sleeping on my abdomen (with a leg propped to the facet to permit room for child) is working finest within the second.

I’ve additionally seen (as I did round this time with Mazen) that my boobs are preparing and have some colostrum already! This was fairly surprising. The physique is so sensible.

Apart from these minor signs, I’m feeling actually good. Maybe one of the best I’ve felt by means of this being pregnant to this point. Urge for food is sweet, vitality is sweet, sleeping is first rate. I’m feeling very grateful to this point. (knock on wooden.)

24 weeks


I’ve been in a position to sustain with my exercises. Every week I do some mixture of the next:

  • 1-2 power courses (modifying with low impression on something associated to leap again planks or twisting however doing jumps if they’re sq. hip type. I’m attempting to maintain my arm weights on the heavy facet as a result of my arms aren’t pregnant!)
  • 1-2 cycle courses (my finest technique to get a tough exercise with low impression)
  • 1 run (which generally is only a stroll and generally a brief run/stroll. My HR was as much as 170 on my most up-to-date run so I took some strolling breaks to convey it again down.)
  • 1 prenatal yoga class mixed with some mild cardio (which generally I miss resulting from it being at night time)
  • 1-2 relaxation days (as a result of rising a child is a exercise in itself!)


I felt a pickup of actions at 20 and 22 weeks. Round 22 weeks I began feeling the kicks within the entrance for the primary time. To date they’re nonetheless like popcorn or fireworks and aren’t the breath-taking rolls that occur afterward. I’m loving them a lot! Thomas has felt a number of, they usually have gotten stronger and stronger of the previous 2 weeks. I really feel him transfer roughly as soon as an hour or so. It’s so humorous how used to it I’m now.

24 weeks with Mazen

24 weeks on the seaside! I could be barely rounder this time? Or it may simply be the way in which I’m standing.


I walked into Mazen’s room the opposite night time and Thomas commented: “I believe you grew three weeks’ value in a single day.” A lot of how I look depends upon my posture, and at night time after dinner I are inclined to calm down all of it out. I can nonetheless suck all of it fairly far again in although, so some days I really feel a lot much less pregnant than others. I believe I undoubtedly had a development spurt whereas I used to be on the seaside. I used to be speaking to a good friend on the pool and saying “I nonetheless don’t really feel like I look pregnant” and he or she stated “You undoubtedly do!” and after I caught an unintended glimpse in a mirror later she was completely proper – I regarded large! Additionally: after I see pictures of me pre-pregnancy, I can’t consider how slim I regarded. I believe I’m simply getting so used to my bump that I don’t actually discover it as a lot! (Hilariously, I noticed that I wrote the identical factor in my 24 week submit with Mazen!)

I’ve gained about 14 kilos since our marriage ceremony, and I’m utilizing that as my start line fairly than my first docs appointment as a result of that’s the load I’d finally wish to get again to. (I’ve gained 10-12ish from my first prenatal appt.)

I’ve additionally began to consider the precise start extra, and I’ll save all of these ideas for one more submit.

We’re all beginning to speak to the infant extra, because it’s all feeling extra actual and we wish him to know our voices! He’s already a bit of fourth individual in our home. Mazen will inform you we now have 5 relations right here: himself, me, T, the infant, and Gus.
