There hasn't been many significant changes over the last few weeks but I love reading these updates back, so I'll update with the latest. I can't believe how big she's getting now and I love reading my Pregnancy + app every day to see how she's getting on. She's supposed to be around the size of an eggplant (or aubergine if you're English).
How far along? 23 weeks & 1 day.
Total weight gain: This last couple of weeks I've noticed my weight suddenly shooting up after not gaining anything for half of my pregnancy. I'm now 5lbs up.
Maternity clothes? Other than growing out of 3 maternity bras so far, no new maternity clothes. Sticking to my regular clothes for as long as possible!
Stretch marks? Tons, too many to count now, mainly all down my legs and sides. None yet on my belly touch wood! Guess I've been very unlucky but I'm just hoping with repeated moisturising and exercise post baby, they will at least fade.
Sleep: Pretty good, no complaints but my belly is starting to get too heavy now and I don't find the pregnancy pillow helps :(
Best moment this week: Tons of kicking. Ollie is finally starting to catch the kicks but usually when I say she's kicking now, she stops.
Miss anything? Now the weather is getting nicer, I'd love to have a glass of cider occasionally and non-alcoholic cider is rare to find.
Food cravings: Nothing in particular but I am starting to eat more and more!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing this fortnight.
Labour signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Itchy skin, sore ever-growing boobs, increased toilet trips, heartburn occasionally, uncomfortableness. You name it.
Belly button in or out? It's gone flat now but it looks close to popping out!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy but very emotional, prone to crying for absolutely no reason.
Looking forward to: Moving house, more lovely weather & reaching 6 months next week!
