So I am back for yet another pregnancy update! I have felt much more at ease putting them in this format as I do often find some updates I don’t have a lot to report in a video.
It is coming up to the end of the school holidays and while I have had 2 morning with the children in some sort of childcare, these next 2 weeks my childminder is off! So come evening I am exhausted! I have tried to get content filmed so thats good, but will likely not be able to get most of it edited until the week they go back to school! Hang in there…trust me I have had some news and you are going to know what it is!
How far along?21 weeks today! It is flying by and when school starts in just over a week, the time will fly!!Who knows I could have a baby this year!
Total weight gain:Still unsure…again defo more weight gain than Albert. I never gained a thing with him!
Maternity clothes? Yes! and I have started getting out the old maternity and nursing bras. Going to order some more this week.
Stretch marks? Non yet! I have never had any stretch marks in any of my pregnancies. This is often genetic and I think a combination of having good supple skin I inherited from my mum has helped.
Sleep: Struggling. I have had bad anxiety and generally a lot on my mind which I plan to talk about in a video that I need to sit down and film. All will be told but it has stopped me with sleep.
Best moment this week: We had a scan this week with the kids there again and it was wonderful. Baby was sucking its thumb and all sorts and its just so nice to see.
Miss anything? No… I am really trying to embrace it all to be honest:)
Movement: Yes!A bit more now than before and my placenta is at the back so I do feel more kicks and flutters.
Food cravings: No not as such. Though again I think I would rather sweet things
Anything making you queasy or sick: I am still feeling on and off a little grotty. Also I have had conjunctivitis this week and so that has made me feel ill. But every now and again I feel like wrenching!
Gender: No idea but Chris will find out this week! All will be revealed in time in a video! Once I find out that is! I have no issue him knowing at all. In my gut I know what it is but he has a brilliant poker face!
Symptoms: Cramps and stretching pain. Still some nausea and feeling sick and seriously bad fatigue!! I think mr iron is low again too so need to call midwife!
Belly button in or out? In just!
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy most of the time so far!
Looking forward to: Starting to buy some bits!! I got some beautiful things on the Little bird at Mothercare facebook pre loved page! So I do plan to do a second hand baby haul soon!
