25 weeks




I'll be 25 weeks tomorrow. At my last appt. the baby girl was laying face down across the bottom, and the baby boy was literally standing on her bum, with his head shoving my stomach and esophagus and diaphragm up too high, making it very hard to breathe, no less eat. I am learning to eat smaller portions almost constantly throughout the day, which is hard for somebody like me who gets going and forgets to slow down. And I feel full a lot. Probably because there is getting to be literally no empty space in there! Scott is getting used to my small appetite at meal time, which is also not like me!

Normally I get lots of low kicks, which is so much fun since I didn't ever really feel kicks with Emily. The low kicks send me running to the ladies room, but I still delight in each one! Just today I started feeling kicks really high, which means somebody probably turned. I can't wait to return to the doctor on 3/2 to see who it is!

So far the entire pregnancy has gone really well. Great in fact when you consider I was on bed rest with Emily. On the 3/2 appt. we will talk about possibly pushing my due date back from 5/15 to 5/28 because of everything going so well. I am thrilled! :)

You look adorable...so happy and healthy!

Feeling the baby kick is the one thing I have ever truly missed about pregnancy. Even now, I'll dream them once in a while and it's a bit of a disappointment to wake up.

Wow, you look great. I can't even imagine having 2 inside. One seems like a lot to me ;) Glad you're healthy.

I'm assuming you mean moving your due date from 5/15 to 5/28? I agree with Katie, I can't imagine carrying 2!

Oh Jenny! Thank goodness for the edit button! :) There are so many things I can't get straight in my head lately!

You are so beautiful! I love the picture. I'm glad you posted it, it's hard to imagine your growth (for lack of better word). That little boy is a bully! He cracks me up! You all had your hands full already but now I can see it's going to be even more!!!

Love you!

I had my appointment yesterday and my doctor said he may let me go to may 30 instead of may 9. I was hoping for the ninth. Guess this one is in God's hands now:). Why were you on bed rest with Emily? I have so many friends with preemies I like to hear everyones full stories (the good, the bad, and the ugly). Have you done the diabetes test yet? I had that yesterday. I don't know the results yet but I almost passed out during it. Hope everything else is going well with you three:)
