The last few weeks I have seen the most changes in both myself, baby and my body. It's also been the best few weeks and I couldn't be happier. If you follow me on Instagram (paulab90), you will already know some pretty exciting news that happened a couple of weeks ago!
How far along? 21 weeks & 1 day.
Total weight gain: 3lbs - a huge difference and I notice the weight creeping most days in fact! I'm pretty sure my boobs contribute heavily to those 3lbs!
Maternity clothes? No new ones yet.
Stretch marks? Yep - genetics suck!
Sleep: Pretty well on the whole.
Best moment this week: So many great moments!
1. Seeing our baby again at the 20 week anomaly scan. We got the all clear that she's all well in there which is great news! It's quite surreal that was the last time we'll see her for a good while yet!
2. The other best moment was, of course, our engagement. It wasn't quite a shock but I'm looking forward to our next stage in life together soon :)
3. The kicks are now quite frequent and she likes to kick in some weird places. Thankfully it isn't painful yet, but can be quite disruptive!
Miss anything? The occasional alcoholic beverage, especially over Easter at our families, along with lots of full fat coke!
Food cravings: No constant cravings but chocolate has featured quite heavy, it was Easter after all...
Anything making you queasy or sick? Still the usuals along with motion sickness generally isn't too great lately.
Labour signs: Nope.
Symptoms: The kicking as I described earlier. My boobs have gotten literally out of control now and I've already gone up over 2 cup sizes which is insane, I hope they stop soon!
Belly button in or out? Slowly it's getting quite flat which is so creepy, I hate belly buttons at the best of times especially out-ies!
Happy or moody most of the time: Very happy :)
Looking forward to: We're actually in the process of unfortunately having to move house again, a few months after our last! As annoying as it is, we can hope that this will be the last for a while so I can start to decorate the nursery!
So there we have it, time is still flying by with lots of dates to look forward to. I love keeping an eye on a few girls I follow on Instagram and Youtube that are due around the next few months, it's so exciting!
