Here's my baby bump at week 25. She's definitely growing... along with the scale. Being pregnant is certainly a life change. I've always loved the way pregnant people look. They may feel differently about it, but I've always loved their tummies. Now that my own tummy is protruding so much, I look at skinny people and feel a little jealous. I honestly can't remember what my stomach looked like 6 months ago. It's sad to see the way your body changes and how the scales creeps upward, but I'm so happy it's a little baby inside making the change. I'm getting anxious for her to come. I think 9 months is a long time to be prego, but I'm sure when she gets here I might be scared enough that I'd hope I could have a few extra weeks.
I know everyone pregnancy is different... for me I'm feeling lots of movement now. I've had a lot of heartburn and my back has been killing me. It's been very uncomfortable to sit for long ,which is too bad I have a desk job. I try to get up and walk around as much as possible to help. It also hurts when I sleep... enough to wake me up several times through out the night. Has anyone had this problem? I feel like I see pregnant people all over the place and they just sit in their chair with their hands resting on their tummies calm as can be. Me on the other hand... I'm constantly changing my position, sticking my arm behind my back for support, squirming, stretching, and trying to lean up as much as possible, just to relieve the pain. Sorry, I'm not trying to complain, I'm more using this post to track how I feel so I can remember later. I've also noticed it's been a little harder to breath. I wonder if my lungs are getting squished a bit. I put my temple dress on the other day and it took a good 10 minutes for me to get the zipper up. I was too embarrassed to ask for help (what if they wouldn't be able to get the zipper up?) I would have rented a dress had we time, but since we needed to be at a funeral later I thought I could just deal with it. I seriously could not take a full breath in it it was so tight. That combined with back pain from sitting in the chairs for so long made it rough. I think that's the last time I can wear my dress pregnant... I definitely will need to rent one. I deal with the back pain all day so I can handle a couple more hours, but don't think I can deal with both the pain and not being able to breath.
