18 weeks

Here’s your weekly update! Apologies if you received a blank version, WP is trolling me.

The size/what features:  Apparently an artichoke? Or sweet potato.

Total weight gain/how much this week:  Still not much and I raised this with my midwife last week. She felt if I was eating okay, she wasn’t worried.

Sleep:  Still a bit tough because my hips get achey, but doing okay.

Maternity Clothes:  Rotating dresses and returning to sweatpants when I get home.

Food cravings:  Still just Fanta and fruit juice! English muffins with peanut butter.

Food aversions:  Still just not that enthused about food but that’s okay.

Symptoms I HAVE:

Nausea – All gone apart from a tummy bug I had earlier in the week!

Hunger – Still not increased but making sure I eat often.

Heartburn – Lesser, still an issue at night but I prop myself up.

Skin – Still dry and itchy, no glowing.

Stretchmarks:  No change there.

Doctor’s Appointment:  Had a good catch-up with my midwife team and heard baby’s heart, all sounding good. I don’t know how you’re supposed to just trust baby is still okay in there, but the heartbeat is very reassuring.

Movement:  A few pops here and there but nothing obvious yet. Looking forward to it.

Belly Button:  No change!

Baby’s sex?:  Find out for sure in 11 days. We’ve started buying some things though – girls can wear dinosaur onesies…

Best moment of the week:  Probably hearing that heartbeat again. Every week feels like waiting for movement so I worry less about the babe.

What I’m looking forward to:  Movement! Our anatomy scan. Getting the nursery sorted.

What I miss:  Sleeping comfortably in any position.

Getting closer to halfway…
