Pregnancy Diary : Week 25 & 26

Week 25 was an exciting one as it was time for my first face-to-face midwife appointment! It was quite a warm day so the mask was uncomfortable to wear and just made me hotter so I kept needing to lift the mask to have a drink. The joys of covid!

 

Anyway, it was a student midwife with another midwife who was seeing me. They went through all the questions again about my health history like in the 8-week booking appointment and explained that at my next appointment I would start getting measured and have a blood test, I was also able to heart the heartbeat! Scroll across to the last image below to hear it!

It’s the first time I’ve heard it as all the scans have been silent. It was nice that I could record it to show my partner as he’s missed out on 3 scans already.

After the appointment, it was starting to heat up as we had a heatwave approaching. Not good, I’m awful in the heat anyway so being pregnant just made it worse. I basically spent the next two days sitting in the spare bedroom, half-naked, with a fan on me.

I’ve been having a real tough time with fatigue. Just unable to move or do anything, completely zapped of energy. There was one day where I couldn’t even stand in the shower so had a bath. I was sleeping loads too but it didn’t matter how much I slept, I was still tried!

Acid reflux is another issue that”s getting worse and worse. I woke up in the morning and could feel acid going up my throat and shot up coughing, I thought I was going to be sick! I’ve been having it for weeks now but it was more sporadic. Now it’s very consistent!

In other news, the nursery is coming along well and I can’t wait to post about it when it’s all finished! Just waiting for curtains and a lamp shade! 🙂
