Week 25 and a Bit of Humor

25 weeks!!  Holy cow.  I wondered for a bit today how I got here.  How lucky I am to get here.  That's what has been hitting me lately.  That I'm lucky to be pregnant.  Sure, it may have taken us a little bit of time to get here and there were others along the way who wished to be on the same awesome journey as us...but I do realize that we're lucky.

I'm definitely enjoying the honeymoon stage of pregnancy.  My symptoms, other than the growing belly, are limited to headaches, disturbed sleep, and a little bit of heartburn.  The heartburn is a bit of a drag, but it doesn't happen that often and it really isn't that bad.  I can imagine it'd be a lot worse.

Baby Stats:
-13 1/2 inches
-1.5 lbs
-growing baby fat
-growing hair
-becoming more and more human looking and less alien-looking :)

Baby is the size of an average rutabaga.  

It's not secret that I plan to am going to give birth naturally.  I've been attending Bradley Method Courses with a fabulous childbirth educator and doula and we also have our own doula.  They're both great.  They're informative.  And I'm having a natural birth.  If the Birth Center, Nativiti, was covered by my insurance I'd be going there.  And I don't care what anyone else things about my birth.  It's mine.  Theirs is theirs and it's welcome to be however they want it.  So, this little cartoon struck me as funny.

  1. You are right - its all how YOU want it and I'm glad you're sticking with it. Comments start in pregnancy and always continue so its good practice now learning to ignore everyone lol :)
