17 & 18 Weeks Update

As in my last post, time is absolutely flying by now and I can't believe I'm 19 weeks already! Nearly at the halfway point, so close. There's definitely been a big increase in the size of my bump as well as gaining weight finally this week - not that I'm complaining too much!

Girls stick together :)
How far along? 19 weeks & 1 day.
Total weight gain: 1lb.
Maternity clothes? Still just the jeans so far, wearing bigger sizes I can get away with right now.
Stretch marks? Stretch marks also pretty much the same, a few on my sides and my inner thighs.
Sleep: Pretty terrible over the past week. I've been so exhausted most days yet I just can't drift off, or find myself waking up tons in the night :(
Best moment this week: Feeling more movements of baby girl & hearing her heartbeat at my midwife appointment.
Miss anything?  Coke, lots of it and not worrying about what I eat so much. Oh, and sleeping in weird positions.
Food cravings: Chocolate it seems this week, which isn't ideal!
Anything making you queasy or sick? The smell of hot food alongside the usual kittens smells.
Gender: It's a girl! :) 
Labour signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Back pain intermittently, shortness of breath and severely congested at night.
Belly button in or out?  In.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Our 20 week scan next week (but also very nervous!) and the exciting times to come.

I can't wait for more movement, but I'm already worried about the lack of sleep I'm getting without being kicked in the ribs! I have restrained from buying any cute clothes for a while but Zara kids clothes are just irresistable! Overall I'm feeling great, if a little tired.

If you have any maternity wear recommendations for the upcoming Summer months, please do let me know your favourite brands!
