How far along. 24 weeks
Countdown. 16 weeks to go
Baby hand size.
Tia over the bump maternity leggings which are so comfy, I also got 2 hoodies in both black and pink Maternity Tia Tie Sleeve Hooded Sweat Top these are so easy to just throw on, they look stylish and super comfy.
Stretch Marks. Nope nothing yet and still using Palmers Cocoa Tummy Butter which feels lovely and smells delicious. I have also been using Cussons Mum and me Soothe & Nourish body lotion with feels lovely on my skin and keeps it hydrated especially in this weather.
Sleep. I have been sleeping well but it’s just the position gets uncomfortable and I toss and turn but once asleep I literally sleep like a baby.
Best moment this week. Having regular movements of my little boy kicking away.
Worst moment this week. The dreaded piles and chafing! The only thing that can soothe the chafing is slapping a load of sudocrem on the area and walking around like someone who has s*** themselves, I know so glamorous but this is the reality of pregnancy. The same with the dreaded piles, I had them after I had Heidi but not during pregnancy. There is nothing you can take either, when I plucked up the courage to ask the pharmacist he said you can’t use the cream while pregnant so I’m suffering in silence.
Miss anything. Being able to wear flattering summer clothes and not look like a whale.
Movement. Loads of kicks from this little fella, he’s definitely going to take after his dad and play football. Every time he starts kicking and I get Keith to feel he stops, he’s already becoming naughty haha.
Food cravings. Fanta!!!!!
Sickness. Same as last time cooking any sort of beef, hamburgers, mince eeeew the smell makes me nauseous.
Gender. Baby Boy
Symptoms. Just the usual, shortness of breath, tiredness, round ligament pain, piles and chafing, that seems to be a lot of crap symptoms.
Belly button in or out. Outie
Happy or Moody. I would say Happy.
Looking forward to. Celebrating Keith’s birthday on Saturday and having a nice meal out. Also getting a new washer/Dryer, I realise it’s such a mum thing to be excited about but having a dryer will make life so much easier.
Workouts. None been so lazy.
If there is anything else you would like to see or think I have missed up update wise then please let me know and I will see you for next weeks update.
