25 weeks - whoo hoo

I can tell now that I am getting bigger every day not just on a weekly basis. On a positive note, the swelling in my feet and ankles has gone away, for now. I think drinking a ton of water and elevating my feet at work and at home has helped. I am hoping it was a fluke. I have my 25 week appointment this afternoon so I will speak to my midwife about it.

New windows on our house are being installed as I type this. I can't wait to get home and see the transformation. We had old crank style windows before that over half of the windows lost their crank and didn't have screens. So we couldn't have the windows open when the weather was nice out. Not anymore!

It has been 3 days since starting the Hypnobabies daily practice and I am loving it. I am a little worried about the fact that I can't make it through a whole CD without seeming to fall asleep. Maybe I am just that deep into a hypnotic state because I will wake up and the CD is done playing. My subconscious should still be receiving the messages though. It has definitely already changed my thinking on birthing my baby. I am excited about it, not scared in anyway. It trains you to think that you will have an easy and fast labor, no negative thoughts in this household. I am so relaxed even at work now, it's amazing.

Enough about me, let's talk about the baby. Only 3 more weeks until I am in the third trimester, it doesn't seem possible.

Best Moment of the week: Putting the crib together and seeing nursery start to unfold. I love walking there and imagining what it will be like when he is here.

Epiphany of the week: Elevate your feet to de-swell your feet.

Entertaining question/comment of the week: My bosses wife said to me "you look really pregnant today". Ummm did she just call me fat?

Obsessions: Practicing my Hypnobabies and trying to relax.

What I am most looking forward to this week: Washing more baby clothes I have received and organizing the dresser.

What I miss the most: Nothing I am loving pregnancy this week.

Symptoms: Back aches, pressure when I lay on my back now, boobs are still growing and still getting acid reflux.

Milestones: That oh-so-handy sense of equilibrium is kicking in, and baby's learning to distinguish right side up from upside down. *Courtesy of

Hey Erin,

It might be posted in a previous post...but I was wondering:

did you buy a book/cd for hypobirth?
I'm interested in that type as I'm scared of giving birth and the pain.

Stephanie - I purchased the Hypnobabies Home Study Course from Amazon. It comes with a work book and the CD's. It is worth the cost and about half the price of taking a Bradley Class.
