Bump Update: 25 Weeks

It hit me the other day that I'm already on my 6th month of pregnancy. I think that as soon as I had hit the 20 weeks pregnant mark, time decided to speed up somehow because I feel in awe every time Friday comes around again. Suddenly all of these worries are starting to flood into my mind. Am I going to be a good mom? Am I going to drop my baby?(Yeah it's a legit fear I have) Am I going to have giant babies like my mom did? Will my labor last a long time? Am I going to be in too much pain to have a natural birth? The list goes on. I don't have much of any experience with babies and I'm feeling a lot of anxiety about this whole situation. But if every other woman can do it, than I can do it! I think..

And just to throw this out there, I feel like a puffy, tired, pregnant blob. I can't sleep and every time I stand up from sitting down for more than 5 minutes I feel like the muscles in my lower abdomen are going to ... rip.
