25 weeks

I keep writing posts and then not posting them. I don't know why.

I'm struggling these past few days with worse-than-usual insomnia. It sucks. I wake up at 2 or 3 or 4, and I may or may not get back to sleep, after an hour or two. This morning it was 4, so I decided to just get up and go to work around 5:45. Now I'm not sure I'm going to be able to function today, and I'm supposed to be training my coworkers this afternoon. Yikes.

I'm still paranoid. I feel a lot more kicking on the right side than on the left, which I know doesn't really mean anything, but there you have it. It worries me. I need something to worry about no matter what, I guess.

I want to post about my first childbirth class on Sunday, before I get to my NEXT childbirth class next weekend. Also, my in-laws are coming from Italy next week, a sort of last-minute surprise visit that I'm excited about (and desperately hoping the insomnia eases up by then).

But for now, I'm thrilled I made it to 25 weeks, and even though I'm sometimes ready to evict these babies at the earliest reasonable date (like yesterday when my hip pain was unbearable and I was shuffling around like an old lady), I'm so excited to carry them for as long as reasonably possible and meet them in about three months.

Wish me luck with staying awake today. Cheers!


  1. My gosh - they will be here in no time!

    I get a lot more activity on one side vs. the other - it makes a lot more sense after I saw the way they're laying in our last ultrasound. Mine are laying like a "T", so most feet are pointing left-ish...

    Hope the visit with your in-laws goes well - and you can get some rest by then!

  2. Hope you made it through your day ok and that the upcoming visit with the in-laws goes well. Hope too that you can get some sleep soon.

  3. I hope you had a good day today, hon! Hang in there, sweetie! You're doing just fine! Sending you SO much love!

  4. Hi, I haven't been here before, but I was cruising by and thought I'd throw my 2 cents in. I'm not sure if you know where your placenta is attached, but it's possible that it's on the left and that it's cushioning you from the kicks on that side. (I was told that mine is on the top, so I'll mostly feel kicks on the bottom.) Just a thought. :)


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
