16 Weeks Pregnant
Hello there – I’m now 16 weeks pregnant!
Hmm I think this pregnancy is starting to drag a little bit – the last couple of weeks have gone sooo sloooowly. I think that’s probably a good thing though as so much to do before Christmas.
So here is my weekly update:
I’ve definitely been having a bit more round ligament pain and this makes sense as my uterus is expanding quite rapidly now so I’ve been going a bit slower getting up if I’ve been lying or sitting for a while.
I’m a bit disappointed that I still feel knackered and nauseous – I thought I’d have more energy by now. I’m now wondering whether this is my normal pre-pregnancy state as it feels like I’ve been knackered forever! Perhaps I never felt particularly energetic?
I did think about measuring my waist line to see how much I was expanding until I had a word with myself and realised that would be AWFUL! Some things, we just don’t need to know.
I bought a couple of maternity tops from ASOS and tried them on – they’re lovely but I can’t wear them until I have a bigger bump I think – I’ll take pics when I wear them.
I’ve been wondering for a couple of weeks if I can feel Mini moving sometimes. Tiny fluttery feelings – I’m not 100% sure – I’m hoping for something a bit more definite soon though as it will be much more reassuring when I can feel her move around.
Nothing new – no new appointments, just waiting for the 20 week scan now. It was so much different in Australia with Miss M – I had a doc app every month although I guess with baby #2 it isn’t as necessary.
Thank you so much for your comments on the last few update posts! It’s so fun to hear about how you did or didn’t have a feeling about what gender you were having – and those of you who got the total opposite!
We’re dead set on not finding out the sex and I’m still convinced she’s a SHE so I’ll be referring to Mini as a she from now on – just so you know :)
Now, a dilemma for this week, I have NO idea what to buy my 19 month old for Christmas. I don’t believe in spending a fortune but I do want to get her something special. I was thinking about the Ikea mini kids kitchen – can anyone else recommend it?
Or any other suggestions?
