That's an enlightening phrase, isn't it? It tells you everything you need to know in one intimidating sentence! This what happens when you look up what is happening in week 25 of the pregnancy. A football (let's revert to the proper term; we invented the damn game, after all); that's big. Of course, K___ is far more aware of how big it is than anyone.
Commonly-associated things for mum included sciatica like pains running from the lower back into the legs. Nice. I have a bit of sciatic pain and it's not especially amusing. I imagine if you've got a great big heavy belly on you, this is is particularly true. Those of you currently imagining my own far-from-svelt figure may insert your own jokes here: __________________
Mums-to-be also gets a Brucie-bonus of 50% extra blood gratis. Nice. K___ was telling me just this morning that her colleague was expressing surprise that she wasn't wearing tights and was wearing flip-flops still. She's also sleeping under an empty duvet cover and showing no signs of cold. When the baby's born in January, she's probably going to die of shock!
Wonder what week 26 holds? 'Your uterus is now the size of Pluto and you have a million per cent more blood than normal. And your eyes have exploded.'
