I was certain that I would do at least weekly updates on here during my pregnancy, even if you don't like reading them, for my own viewing as I really want to be able to look back on my pregnancy. It's been a struggle to gain the energy to even write this one, which I have been planning to do for nearly 2 weeks now. I will do updates when I can, however I have come to my own conclusion that they will probably (almost certainly) won't be weekly!
Today I am 14 weeks + 3 days pregnant. I have been pregnant for 101 days. I am firmly in my second trimester and my baby is the size of a peach. I am not enjoying pregnancy, full stop. There, I said it! Call me a bad person, but I have not enjoyed a minute of it so far. *que the violins*
One of my main and worst symptoms is sickness. I must admit, I haven't been sick once however I have all day every day nausea. It really starts to get irritating when you just cannot do anything to shift it. Some days its worse, some days I gag even when I talk and some days I just want to run to the toilet and make myself sick as its that bad. Obviously I have times where it passes slightly but there is always a niggling sicky feeling in my stomach somewhere. The recent weeks I was certain it was beginning to pass completely but nope, its back with a vengeance. I'm sure it's worse now than it was before.
How far along: 14 weeks + 3 days
Days until due date: 179!!!!
My bump: growing more every day! I look in the mirror every morning and I'm sure I get bigger by the hour.
Weight changes: I have put on about 4 pounds in the past month, ouch.
Cravings: food!!! The only thing I've really been craving is ice lollies. I think its due to the weather though!
Sleep: Terrible. I usually sleep on my front so for the past few months Ive been trying to get used to sleeping on my back/side. Its really not going well meaning I have restless sleep pretty much every night. SAD TIMES.
Symptoms: sickness as mentioned above, I've had heartburn tonnes, my back has been aching, I have had a headache every day for the past 2-3 weeks but again, I think it could be due to the weather, sore boobies!
Gender: unknown at the moment (28th June I will find out!) however I'm certain it's a boy.
Mood: terrible. I'm always so snappy, exhausted and tired and if I'm 100% honest I've really struggled lately.
Looking forward to: our next scan and going on holiday the day after!! My holiday shopping is out of control.
I still have so much more that I could say, I feel like my pregnancy posts will all be one massive ramble as I can talk for hours about it! but I won't bore you now, maybe soon ;-)
I hope you like the update posts, please do let me know if you would like to see regular ones and I'll try my best for you!!
