Baby Caterpillar - 25 Weeks

Oh hello 25 weeks, I feel like you're finally here but came around so quick at the same time! 
25 weeks:
20 weeks:

What a huge growth spurt this little one has had in just 5 weeks! Although I'm carrying SO much fluid!
We are doing our progress picture again, so I'll share next week, come back to see!
I have just had some kidney tests done as they're worried about pre-eclampsia returning this time with some high BP readings and so much fluid and kidney pains. I'm waiting for the results now, so will update more on that next week too.

I haven't been toooo sick this week, thank goodness! I think I've only had two bad days, where I couldn't keep anything down. Things are definitely improving with my sickness, but I do hope it would completely leave me alone soon!!

Symptoms this week:
Leg Cramps.
Pelvic Pain.
Braxton Hicks.
Swelling & Fluid.
Trouble Staying Asleep.
Feeling Hot.
Increased Appetite.
High BP.
Weight gain: 7 kilo -I need to stop writing my weight I think, ekk! At least the doctor said it's mostly fluid. 

Doctors/Midwives Appointment:
I had a doctors appointment this week, where they've put me on fortnightly appointments now because of my blood pressure instead of monthly. So my next appointment is in about a week and a half. 
The doctor sent me off for tests on my kidneys, so fingers crossed all is okay there, and also gave me a referal to book my next scan. I'm so excited to see the baby again in a few weeks, but nervous as to what will be out of the cyst in their brain.

 Around 3 more weeks.

Size of baby: 
About 660gms, and 35 cms head to toe!.. grown 5cm in a week!
About as long as a zucchini!

Baby's doing this week:
Their brain is growing rapidly!
Time left:
15 weeks!! 
Next Milestone:
Next milestone will be our 27/28 week scan!
Baby's Gender:
Will reveal after our 27/28 week scan.
Nickname for baby:
Caterpillar - because of the hungry caterpillar themed nursery.
Black forest chocolate.. what does that mean?
All decided, woohoo!!
