Here’s some thoughts about this week.
The size/what features: He is the size of a cauliflower, and is apparently possibly opening his eyes. He’s fond of lying sideways across me lately, with kicks often being accompanied by headbutts so that I get a thump on both sides at once. It’s pretty neat.
Sleep: We just took a quick trip up north to Lake Taupo and I got a lot of naps. It was great!
Maternity Clothes: I busted out some maxi dresses the other day to put in the wash for those warm days that are hopefully coming!
Food cravings: Nothing new, though my diabetes test is coming up so I think I should lay off the sugar.
Food aversions: Nothing new!

Symptoms I HAVE:
Hunger – I wake up hungry! No nighttime munchies yet, however.
Heartburn – Endless GERD. I may remove this prompt because yes it may never change.
Skin – So moisturised.
Stretchmarks: No change. Getting round.
Doctor’s Appointment: Seeing midwife on Friday, then the next test is my gestational diabetes test, probably next week. Joy!
Movement: SO much. Today he is moving almost constantly. Have a nap, kid.
Best moment of the week: When we were up north, D finally got to feel him move. It was quite a triumphant celebration on his part and it was just so great for him to finally catch it. I know as Bubs gets bigger, he’ll get a lot more chances, but this was so great for him after such a long wait.
What I’m looking forward to: Starting antenatal classes this week!
What I miss: Feeling limber. Ha. The waddle has begun.
I’ll be 6 months preg on Friday!
