25 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2


Bump definitely feels/looks smaller from 2 days of hardly eating!
Reading my apps this morning as seeing '15 weeks to go' was crazy; that seems like no time at all! Finding the vegetable comparison size seems to be getting more difficult as some places I look say cauliflower and some say aubergine haha. Either way baby boy weighs roughly 660 grams and is about 35cm long (anyone else just compare this to a 30cm ruler you used at school haha?)!

This week I had my first experience of having to get up in the night to wee - I know I'm lucky to make it this far haha, but it was bloody annoying! Especially when I find it so hard to get back to sleep once I'm awake. Linked with this is that I've been needing to go all the time even if I've only just been haha. Pip must have been jumping on my bladder this week!

I saw the midwife on Wednesday and talked through all my worries and concerns with her. She agrees she's going to keep an eye on his size as she could tell he's a big boy haha. She didn't measure my bump which I thought was odd (they did at this stage with Indiana), but said everything felt in the right place. My urine, BP and his heart beat were all perfect so she was happy. She said I've just got to keep her updated on my migraines if they are coupled with swelling as it could lead to pre-eclampsia. She also confirmed my suspicions and he is all down my right side - and still is right now!

I thought I was finally feeling better until I was hit with a sickness bug yesterday. I didn't even keep much water down which was worrying. I'm feeling slightly better today though - I'm still feeling achy all over but I have managed to eat.. woohoo!

Hopefully I'll have nothing to say next week as I'm sick of feeling sick haha!


  1. I cannot believe you have only just had to get up to pee in the night - you lucky thing! I've been getting up every few hours since about 12 weeks! lol
    Hope you are feeling better soon lovely. Take care of yourself xx

  2. I hope you feel better soon, nothing worse then being unwell when you are pregnant xx

  3. I've been weeing at night from about 14 weeks, you lucky thing, hope it was a one off and you're still able to sleep through the night still. It's so annoying when you can't back to sleep. X

  4. Lovely bump shot! So sorry to hear you have been so poorly, I had a bug while pregnant with Lm and it is so rough when you are pregnant but glad to hear you are feeling better again now! Thanks for linking with #MaternityMondays

  5. Aaah such a lovely pic :) The vegetable references used to make me laugh too :) I remember thinking — yes, but what size IS a Chinese Cabbage (28 weeks incidentally ;) ) x #maternitymonday
