25 Weeks

23 Oct

Aaaaand another week has passed. Apparently, now the baby knows where up and down is; I can try and tickle his foot; he will turn his head if I turn on a bright light close to my belly.

As to tickling the feet – yesterday was the first time I actually felt his heels. Little, skinny, sharp heels. He kept kicking in the same spot and when I pressed – instead of a firm give I fond a little sharp object there – his foot! He kicked me in response. So much fun πŸ˜‰

I started getting heartburns at night. My hubby told me milk helps – and he was so nice that he actually went downstairs, warmed up a glass of milk and brought it back to me. And it did help! I guess I will start drinking milk in the evenings now…

I am still sick. Yeah, after thinking for a while that I am balancing on the verge of getting sick, I realized that I am sick – I just don’t have the running nose.

I told my hubby: I don’t have a fever, I don’t have a running nose, but I feel like shit! He told me that sounds like classical depression to him ;)))

Still no stretchmarks, but the skin around my belly button looks darker and weird.

We started taking merengue classes today and I am so glad I wore my new compression maternity tights! Yes, my feet got tired (because of the extra weight and the heels and all the marching) – but I don’t have the vein pains, which is great!

2 more weeks till trimester number 3. Time is flying!

    Wow, time really is flying! I’m glad everything is still going well–minus getting sick. I hope it clears up soon!

    I’m sorry you ended up with a cold. My parents got sick last week, now I think my husband is getting the same cold and I am just hoping I don’t end up with it. I haven’t gotten my flu shot yet! Congrats on being so close to your third trimester. Almost there!

      oh, I hope you don’t get this, too – on top of your carpal syndrome and contractions…

    I give you total credit for starting dance lessons at 25 weeks!

      oh, we’ve been taking tango classes since I was about 7-8 weeks, so it’s not like we just started…
      but we just signed up for the next, 7-week level… I will be 7.5 months when we finish!!!
