Heartburn and Sleepless Nights

Week 25!


Well I've made it to week 25 in one piece. According to this little one is about 13 1/2 inches and 1 1/2 pounds.

I truly hope he/she is bigger than that, since I've put on a heft amount of weight in the last month and a half! I know, I's all for the good of the baby. I don't have an issue with gaining weight during pregnancy, though I will admit that I am already planning my post-baby weight-loss strategy.

Even with the weight gain (which is looking to be more than previous pregnancies) I have to say I've been very lucky this pregnancy.

Things have been going well. I have the normal pregnancy complaints of course. My lower back and left leg can get pretty bad at times. I have to sit when I get dressed or my leg will randomly give out on me, which is really more embarrassing than anything. Heartburn is becoming a problem, and it seems that no matter what I eat, if it's after 7pm it just is not a good idea. I drank a glass of milk around 9pm one night and ended up with heartburn. I didn't even think that was possible! And, of course, sleeping is getting difficult.

It isn't that I'm uncomfortable so much that I have some terrible pregnancy insomnia. On the bright side I've gotten really far on Candy Crush lately. Go me!

I have 3 weeks until my next doctor's visit and the dreaded glucose test. No one looks forward to that. With my daughter it was no biggie, but with my son it made me feel awful. Part of me is a little concerned this go around. I feel like I'm due for some sort of problem or complication.

Latest craving? Coffee. I'm not a coffee drinker really, haven't been in years. Suddenly I want to move into a Starbucks. All I want anymore are vanilla iced coffees with lots of cream and sugar. I've been so good with caffeine this pregnancy that I did treat myself to one the other day while we were at Target. It was so damn good but I felt guilty afterwards. Next time I'll just get decaf. Treating myself once or twice a month can't be so bad, right? Ah, go ahead and judge me.

Hoping all the other expecting moms are doing well, I know there are a lot of you!
