Week 25 Pregnancy Update and Youtube

Hey guys, 
sorry this is such a late update, I should have done week 26 by now too, oops! Oh, and sorry for the lack of photo (you can see bumpy in the video though), I always use photos from my phone and sadly it got pinched a couple of days ago. 
Anyway, I've decided to learn how to use my proper camera for blog photos from now on, just bear with me!
I'll get on with the update... 

How far along? 
End of week 25.

Total weight gain? 
Just over a stone, yikes. It's hard to show through a photo, but I feel huge, like I've swallowed a basket ball or something! 

Maternity clothes? 
Nothing new, I'm trying to get away with maternity jeans and stretchy tops for as long as I can.

Stretch marks? 
Nothing yet, I've been religiously applying all sorts of oils and creams so fingers crossed it's helping my skin to stay stretchy! 

Sleep has been interrupted as my back ache gets worse and swapping sides gets more painful. I also have to shuffle around my 3 pillows wedged in various places and about 3 or 4 bathroom trips a night. 

Best moment this week? 
When stef and I were cuddled up on the sofa and little jeffy started going crazy in there, Stef thinks he felt a finger haha 

Worst moment this week? 
I woke up with a horrible cold and not being able to take medicine when your ill is really not fun, honey and lemon sucks! 

Miss anything? 
I made a cake this week and realised that I couldn't devour any of the cake mix or lick the bowl because of the raw egg... Boo!! It was very upsetting and felt like suh a waste of good cake mix haha 

Movement is constant, and very strong, I can now even feel him when I am walking along which is very strange and when I'm riding on Stefs Vespa. 

Food cravings? 
I just want to eat everything if I'm honest, I'm starving all the time. 

Anything making you feel sick or queezy? 

A boy.

The main one this week has got to be back ache, it's starting to become more of a problem and I just can't get comfortable :( there's just no way!! I think I need a preggo back massage soon, they're just so expensive! 

Belly button in or out? 
Erm, in and out!! Depending in what jeffy is up to at the time! 

Happy or moody?

Looking forward to?
We booked a private antenatal class in North London, it isn't until December but I'm still looking forward to it! I'm so pleased it includes first aid for infants too.


  1. For future cakey goodness, if the eggs are red lion stamped then you can eat them raw/runny as they've been vaccinated against salmonella so the risk is minute :) !

  2. I can't believe how glam you still look.

    God, Im just gone 22 weeks and look like a zombie!


  3. Seriously don't bother with the pregnancy massage - it's really not relaxing when you can't lie on your front :( I had one and it felt like a waste of money. No more massages for me until i can have a proper one again! xx

  4. Eugh, the back ache is just so crappy,I hated it! I highly recommend investing in a birth/gym ball to help with it, somehow it made it disappear when I sat on it. I went through a spell of baking when preggo too and missed licking the bowl haha. I love the little kicks, so cute :-) xx

  5. I'm a nurse, and can honestly say paediatric first aid is one of the best things you can learn for baby jeffy! You never know when you might need it x
