I'm back with a little update and overview of how my first trimester went and I found this tag on Anne Saccone's blog so thought it'd be good to document my weekly progression!
How far along? 15 weeks 5 days
Total weight gain: After having a pretty horrible bout of morning sickness in my first trimester, I've actually lost 1.3lbs and no gains yet :(
Maternity clothes? I bought my first maternity jeans yesterday! It's been a struggle the last few weeks but I've got by with my favourite Zara leggings and elasticated waistbands. I decided on the H&M ones and love them, great material and fit quite nicely, shame they're far too long though (short girl problems!)
Stretch marks? Unfortunately have quite a few already even though I have been applying lotion twice a day! My thighs and hips have a few but I'm hoping they go in time.
Sleep: Up and down, starting to get quite uncomfortable falling asleep, but once I'm asleep I don't wake up too much except toilet breaks.
Best moment this week: Feeling baby a little more. I can certainly tell that its getting much bigger in there now but can't wait for the constant feels.
Miss anything? Occasionally I wish I could drink cider again, but thankfully there's non-alcoholic options so it isn't the end of the world!
Food cravings: Mash potato and curry sauce - not together! Mainly mash potato and anything dry. I've gone off most of the things I used to love and fell out of love with food altogether for 8-10 weeks so I'm glad my appetite is returning.
Anything making you queasy or sick? The cats mainly, as they're indoor cats right now their smells can be quite nauseating! My bear like smells are also decreasing meaning I don't throw up or gag at every single thing I smell. Also, travel sickness is becoming increasingly worse which is a problem when we have to travel over 3 hours to see our family!
Gender: Early guess is a boy - but we will soon find out!
Labour signs: Nope
Symptoms: Morning sickness is definitely disappearing - hooray! Back pain has started to become a problem and getting out of breath easily too.
Belly button in or out? In
Happy or moody most of the time: Mostly happy! But some things can easily set me off emotionally.
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender next week in an early scan! I can't wait to know what baby is so I can buy more colourful things!
I've finally decided on my changing bag too, it's from Storksak and it's the Noa version, not sure on the colour just yet - we'll wait and see! After a loving shopping trip yesterday catching up with my boyfriend, we also bought baby its first toy from The White Company. It's unbelievably soft and I wish I had one too!
I was thinking of creating a separate blog to document my pregnancy but since starting my blog, the direction in which my blog is going has changed dramatically and beauty will still be featured, just not as much.
So that's it for this week, my belly is certainly growing but since moving house I'm yet to find my tripod/have someone around to take pictures. Once I've got this set up I'll be sure to update the post with pictures of the bump!
