(I imagine the comparison photo will be that image, so please scroll down.)
How long will it go on for? No one knows.
Well, just a pregnancy not in the time of Covid.
I have nothing to compare it to really. I can compare it to TV, film or what I hear, but I never actually lived it so *shrug*.
I know they bleed when I floss, but they just seemed to randomly bleed the other day. I need to book a dentist appointment…
I am worried I will have no teeth left by the time I’m 40. Like I said – I need to book a dentist appointment.
Ergh. I’ve gone to bed earlier the last couple of nights. I am planning to have a nap after I finish writing this, as at least when B wakes up early she has a longer first nap so I have time to work and rest.

Lol. Classic dream confusing me.
She would crawl before but she would keep stopping to make sure I was following her, though I was 10cm behind, so this seemed like a quicker option.
I love when she dances, especially when there is no music playing and she just seems to sing to herself. This is more randomly around the house or on walks.
Did we watch a lot of TV yesterday? Yes. Did I feel bad about it? Yes.
Did she watch TV this morning? Yes. Did I try to read her 5 books to compensate in the end? Yes.
Though I do not know how much rest I will really get. I should do things like make meals while I have the free time, but hopefully I can rest a bit too. This is pre-baby X obviously.
I feel like we have much better quality time when we get out of the house. It has been raining all morning…
Great. I took her on the slide the other day as I thought it didn’t matter. Soggy bum. Sat by a puddle another day. Soggy bum. Sat in the grass on another day. Soggy bum. Le sigh.
It’s annoying getting home and having to change her. I find changing her quite stressful as it is less easier with a big bump now.
It really shouldn’t take that long, but I aim to tire her out as well. To be fair to her she has much shorter legs and has only been walking for 4 months.
I learned to ride my bike around here when I was a kid and I remember visiting one time and thinking ‘where are all the hills? did they landscape the area?’ No I was just much smaller once.
Trying to not strain the bump to much and all…
She’s funny. It must feel funny for her.
No wonder she’s been waking up early. She has a good attitude though. She’ll have a finger in her mouth due to teething, but we smiling and bouncing along to music.
Please please please.
We want to try to have a few more weekends away before baby X is born, and there’s a photography book festival happening in Bristol so seemed like a good shout.
Breakfast opens at least an hour too late for B, so we will have to get some food for her to eat.
I need to relax more. I am not looking forward to packing.
She still hasn’t met so many people…
I don’t think about it much as it seems like a waste of time, but I just randomly had that thought while writing this. I have thought about it from time to time.
Before we moved to Brum we did think about moving in Liverpool to be closer to parks and things, but it made sense to leave. I am happy being closer to my family and it does feel like we are starting to know people now.
25 weeks pregnant with B comparison:
Well, as far as I’m aware I’m yet to catch Covid but we’ll see. I am less stressed now that I am double vaccinated though.
At times I still feel a little awkward using my sanitiser – in B’s classes when I wander off to get some mainly – but it is more socially acceptable now.
I haven’t been to the theatre since the time mentioned here. I think we went to see Six, which was really good.
I am writing this bit on the same day of the top shoot for once. Funnily enough, I downloaded an app to monitor the kicks the other day. I have only used it once so far as I feel like this baby may be more active than B, or I am just at home more to notice. I can feel her kicking now.
