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…
