25 weeks (pregnancy update)

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Hello Sparkers! As of today I am officially 25 pregnant! I cannot believe it's going this fast! We had an ultrasound @ 22 wks and found out we are having a boy :) which we are super excited about and we are even more excited that he looks healthy and everything appeared normal. As for me I am feeling good so far now that the 1st trimester is long gone. I have been having pain in my hips when I get up in the morning...some days worse than others....from sleeping on my sides, but it usually goes away in a few hrs after I wake up or less. My feet have been swelling up sometimes, so I am really trying to get enough fluids, exercise, and put them up when I can, which helps. My sugars & proteins are good so far and last my BP was checked it was 118/60 :) So far I have gained about 18 lbs, which I am happy with. I know that continuing my usual lifestyle of staying active and eating has helped me not pack on the pounds. My dr only wants me to gain 30 lbs which I am shooting for but I know now is when most of the weight gain happens btwn the baby himself and water weight, etc. so I'm not gonna freak if I go a bit over that. I am just going to continue doing what I have been doing! I am registering tmrw and DH & I are going nursery furniture shopping this afternoon. So exciting!! :)

Hope you are all doing well!
