25 & 26 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #2

My baby girl has grown from roughly 13.5 inches long to 14 and from 1.5lb to 1.75lb. Of course this is just an estimate of her size as all babies grow at different rates, this is just the average. Her body is now growing rapidly and is becoming more and more in proportion to her head. 
She's also aquiring fat beneath her delicate skin and growing hair with pigmentation. Now her lungs and brain are much more developed and she can pick up on light and noises so much easier. I've noticed she now responds to her voice so I often find myself having a little chat with her. 

I started feeling a little run down around the 26 week mark as I picked up a bug from Noah. It started as a sniffle but got worse and worse as time went on. I normally handle a cold pretty well but with being pregnant and Noah being poorly too it really knocked me for six. With being unwell my emotions have been all over the place and my anxiety has been through the roof. Thankfully I have a couple of blogging friends who are keeping me sane, in particular the wonderful Rebecca P over at Mum of a Premature Baby and my fellow pregnancy buddy Rebecca S who blogs at Futures. I need to start taking it a little easier I think and having a bit more down time in the evening. All that aside everything is much of the same. I feel massive, I dread to think what I'm going to look like come February but it's all worth it in the end! My cravings lately have been all about cheese burgers, carrot sticks and Weetabix. Not all at once though, yuck! I can't believe I'm almost in third trimester already!

See you next week! 


  1. Hope you are feeling better - My Mum says she always had a craving for sucking a piece of coal when she was pregnant!

  2. Hope you are starting to feel better! And that Noah is feeling better and well again too, I know things were feeling rough for you all lately. Hope things look up soon! :) x

  3. Do hope your feeling better soon! Yes baby will be here before you know it!

  4. I love honest posts like yours. Anxiety is something I did not realise was part of pregnancy and some of mine become somewhat irrational. It helped to have good friends to talk to so I'm pleased that you have, too. Rest up; it's gonna be great.

  5. Cannot believe how fast all these pregnancies are going! Definitely try and get some time to rest :) ox

  6. Enjoy, being pregnant is so special, really sad that I will
    Not be pregnant again

  7. Hope you feel better soon. I loved being pregnant with all mine
