20 weeks 6 days
Total weight gain?
8.9lbs!! Wow!! My midwife said it's completely normal so we are on track, yay!
Bump is now 31.5 inches, even in the morning!
Nothing new yet, I don't want to buy loads of maternity clothes as I go off things so easily so I doubt ill re-use anything for my next pregnancy.
I did get sent a lovely lace dress from 'littleblackdress.co.uk', it's still a little big for bump though!
Nothing yet, fewf! I finished my Nspa bump butter though, sad times. I'm now using the famous Mama Mio tummy rub and really loving that too.
Sleep is the same really, my special pillows are a god send, I don't know how I'd get comfy without them! I wake up quite a lot to roll over because my legs and hips go numb, and also to pee a lot, obviously haha the little one has started waking up and fidgeting when I get up now!
Best moment this week?
Definitely finding out the sex, I've been waiting for weeks!! I loved how I was right the whole time, I was so adamant we were having a little boy! If you haven't seen out gender reveal video you can watch it here. I'm so glad we filmed that day, we'll all be able to look back on it :)
Also my best buddy Laura felt our little boy kicking for the first time, that was really cool.
Worst moment this week?
This week has been so good I don't really have a worst moment believe it or not, I've loved being preggo this week! If I had to pick, I suppose it would be on Saturday I was particularly tired, I cried after a 10 hour sleep because I was still tired and stayed in bed until 1 in the afternoon!
I am starting to miss my figure a bit now, nothing in my wardrobe fits me or looks right. My thighs and bum are definitely taking the hit with my weight gain! I've always been very small so I'll admit it's hard to get used to my new 'mummy body'
This little guy is super active! When we went for our gender scan he was playing with the cord, and had his little hand pressed up behind my belly button. He sleeps in the morning, moves around for a lot of the day, and seems to be particularly active around 8-9 at night.
Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate!!
Anything making you feel sick or queezy?
No nothing really, I still don't love the smell of fish or chicken cooking, but that's about it, thank god.
A little boy. I'm having so much fun getting all his little outfits together :) I can't wait to show you all.
My symptoms this week have really died down, fewf! As I said I've been tired, but otherwise it's been a great week. Emotions in tact and everything. Oh, I do have the little line down my tummy now too.
Belly button in or out?
A soft outy.
Looking forward to?
Buying more things for the new man in my life, it's a whole new world of retail therapy!
