Hi ladies, how are you all doing? Its been few weeks since my last pregnancy update. I think the main reason is that things don’t change that much in this little phase but now I have hit the halfway, 20 weeks pregnant mark I thought I would let you know what’s been going on in my body!
How many weeks? 20 weeks
Maternity clothes? I have bought a lot more maternity wear than I had planned to but still feel like I have zilch in my wardrobe! We had a heatwave which prompted an order for maternity shorts and a few summer dresses.
Stretch marks? Not yet. I was very lucky with Harry and I only got a few on my back which faded away over a few years. I’m using all the oils and creams! My fave is Palmers stretch mark oil at the moment and I love Mama Mio tummy rub too
Sleep? I’m not as tired during the day as I was in the first trimester but I am finding it really hard to drag myself out of bed in the morning. I think its more to do with lockdown and lack of motivation though than being pregnant! I’m sleeping well in the night apart from when Harry wakes me up as that then makes the baby wake up when I have to get up and move!!
Best moment this week? Harry felt the baby kick which was soooo cool!! He has been extra cute with it as well, he keeps rubbing my back and checking I’m ok when we are out walking!!
Miss anything? I miss my friends and family so much but thats a lockdown thing again!! I am missing browsing the baby shops but I can defo do that online!!
Food cravings? Still nothing in particular which is weird!! I am extra hungry this week though! I thought I would have more pregnant cravings by now!!
Anything making you queasy or sick? I actually feel weirdly sick today! Randomly as I haven’t felt sick at all for ages.
Gender? We don’t know yet we find out next week!
Symptoms? The headaches have eased now thank goodness. I am starting to get the signs of sciatica though which is horrid. I had it really bad with Harry and I saw an osteopath who sorted it out with one session but I don’t think I would be able to see one with everything going on at the moment and being pregnant. I’ve started to get those horrible growing pains (round ligament pains) in my lower tummy some evenings too which isn’t great either! OH and a lot of heartburn!!!
Happy or moody most of the time? I think I am pretty happy for a pregnant person in lockdown! Especially when I feel the baby moving!!
Looking forward to? The 20 week scan next week! I am a but nervous as I have to go to a hospital out of my town and without Scott but I can’t wait to see the baby on screen and find out what we are having!
