Week - 18
My Bump - I've had lots of comments this week about my bump not seeming to have grown. I'm quite happy to take this seeing as baby is about to double its size and length so i'm pretty sure i'll be seeing some bump growth myself very soon. I think with this baby I showed very quickly but at the moment I seem to have formed a nice shape.
My Symptoms - No migraines this week which has been great. I still get retching every morning when I wake up. I have such a bad lower left back, especially when I am sleeping. The pillow I am using to help me sleeping is not doing its job.
Movements - Again no obvious kicks although I am feeling pressure where the baby is pushing against my tummy. You can quite often feel it by placing a hand on the part of the bump that it's pushing against.
Cravings - No cravings still so this is turning out to be a very similar pregnancy to last time in that respect.
Aversions - Still peanut butter! Keep the damn stuff away from me. Even the smell makes me projectile vomit. Gross!
Exercise - Once again I have still not exercised. I really need to but I am seriously so tired. Anyone else feel this tired on their second?
Baby items purchased - None as yet although my friend has discount from the Autumn Next catalogue so i'm pretty sure i'll be buying a few things from that.
Best moment this week - Having a gender scan and hearing the heartbeat (and all will be revealed very soon....)
Worst moment this week - Hearing how large I am at a wedding we attended. I mean I know I have a big bump but when you here it a hundred times over in one day it gets a bit depressing and makes you feel like pants.
What i'm looking forward to - Feeling some kicks!
How Eva is feeling - Eva got to hear the heartbeat and see the baby in 3d this week so she is being a lot more responsive to being a big sister and starting to understand a bit more.
