I am going to do updates every 4 weeks until due date with some sub topics dotted in between…
As you will see below my vomitting has subsided but nausea still plays its part in daily life. I am definitely coming out the other side based on my last morning sickness post but I’m not quite out of the woods yet!
I was bouncing around at this stage with Josh, with first trimester symptoms disappeared and that second trimester energy had kicked in. However despite this being a different pregnancy I do think number 2 is going to be trickier, your body is tireder and you have a toddler to contend with too.
I am back eating better which I am enjoying as I do love my grub so will write a bit more about what I eat as I go through the pregnancy. I feel I don’t look amazing and I’m going through that ‘fat phase’ so I’ve booked in for a massage and nail paint on Friday ahead of the bank holiday to hopefully perk myself back up and my back has been pretty sore so hopefully that will relieve it a bit!
Hopefully by the next update I won’t be quite as moany as I was only saying to my husband the other night how much I enjoy being pregnant, even despite all this yucky stuff and feel so lucky and excited to have number 2 on the way.
See below for some more of my week 14 updates.
How far along? 14 weeks
Total weight gain? I had put on a few pounds after Christmas and never got down to pre Josh weight by a few pounds. So far this pregnancy I think about 5-6lb gain
Maternity clothes? Not yet but I’m window shopping! However I think I’ll be in my maternity jeans sooner on this baby than with Josh. I was 21 weeks with Josh.
Stretch marks? No, didn’t really get any with Josh either. Just 2 small ones on my side so lashing lots of oil on.
Sleep? Ok, Josh is still not the most wonderfully consistent sleeper but Ian is taking the lions share of that at the moment. I still wake a couple of times and if I feel sick it takes me a while to get back to sleep. Ian has been great with giving me the lie ins and my mum has been great at taking Josh on a couple of overnights too.
Best moment this week: Getting some of my appetite back and feeling somewhat normal on Tuesday being out and about!
Miss anything? Me! I can’t wait to feel a little more energised and nausea to go completely.
Food cravings? White toast usually does the job. I still have quite a few food aversions but they are slowly coming back.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Anything and everything. Still can’t do Josh’s bad nappies so along with everything else Ian is taking the lead on this one at the mo.
Gender? No idea but a lot of people are saying a girl as the pregnancy so far as been so different to Josh.
Labour signs? No!
Symptoms? Low energy, nausea (vomitting has pretty much stopped), congested skin
Belly button in or out? In! But starting to peek out.
Wedding rings on or off? On. Never came off with Josh.
Happy or moody? Happy most of the time and so happy to be pregnant but can get moody with the relentlessness of this nausea.
Looking forward to: Our holiday in 3.5 weeks!
