Went for my 25 week appointment today and everything looked good. Heartbeat was good, and I hadn't gained any weight. Hmm. I was wearing lighter clothes and shoes because last time it was really cold so who knows? Both the nurse and the nurse-practitioner that I saw mentioned that my blood pressure was "better than last time."
Now let me just say that my blood pressure is normally always good. Last time was my big ultrasound and I was nervous! My heart rate was up too. I told them this. They seemed surprised I would be that nervous. But I was! Anyway, everything was good and later this week I get to take my glucose test. Oh joy.
The insomnia is killing me though. Every single night I wake up between 3 and 4am and stay awake until 6 or 7. I can't take much more. I NEED to sleep!!
But really I feel pretty good and very blessed. I love feeling baby kick. I'm so excited for her to get here.
I did have my first ever Braxton Hicks contractions this last week. I have never felt them with any other pregnancy. I was having 3 an hour for several hours. They said if it happens again (that much) to go to labor and delivery to be checked. It happens that drinking and resting made them go away this time. I drink like a camel all day...but I guess I just have to watch it. Since that day I've only had 1 or 2 a day.

We did learn something else at the doctor today and that is that my 12 year old is over 5' 4" tall! They measured her out of curiosity. Mercy! I had no idea she was that tall. Just a few months ago she was 5' 1"!
Tomorrow I hope to share our room re-do with you! Or what there is of it so far.
