21 WEEK UPDATE


I am currently 21 weeks pregnant and it's going so, so quickly. This pregnancy seems to be flying by and I don't know whether I want it to slow down or keep speeding up. I love being pregnant, but I can't wait to be full term and hopefully be preparing to have my baby girl in my arms. That seems like such a long time away, but then I think that Lucas was 36 + 4 when he was born, so what if she's actually going to come then too? That makes my countdown smaller.
I still can't believe that I am 21 weeks pregnant already and with a little girl. Buying little girl things are seriously fun! We have just spent a voucher in John Lewis on some super duper cute floral things for her, and what a lovely feeling it was to not be paying a bill at the end too.

This week, I am finally starting to feel better and I also thought it was about time I wrote weekly pregnancy updates too. I have just passed the 20 weeks stage now and feel i'm at a stage where things change more and your body is doing more things, so feel that i'll regret not documenting her pregnancy, like I did with Lucas.

I'm feeling so many movements now, and considering I've got an anterior placenta, I am feeling so many. It's making everything feel more real and exciting. I adore feeling movements and I will miss it when it's gone.
I have to go back at 28 weeks for another scan on placenta as it's low lying and they want to check its not implanted on my scar. Hopefully it wont cause me any problems. 

I have been mostly suffering my SPD and Siatica, it's so painful and I am such a waddler! It hurts so bad. I have no idea what to do in order to help it, swimming makes it worse but I really want to stay fit and keep taking Lucas, I am still waiting on physio and starting to think "whats the point?" Thats to only downside to pregnancy to me. I'll take any other symptoms, I may not like them, but if I get a healthy baby, i'll take all the crap.



BABY IS THE SIZE OF:  A pomegranate... and by ovia she's the size of a baseball cap! 
IM LOOKING FORWARD TO: Brad feeling her move from the outside.
MY FAVOURITE MOMENT WAS: Spending 45/50 minutes in the ultrasound department, looking at our baby girl at the scan. The bonus of her being a little pickle.
I HAVE BEEN FEELING: Exhausted, SPD is awful, heartburn sucks and all I want to do is sleep.
I HAVE BEEN BUYING FOR BABY: Snuzpod2 in blush, pram suit, blanket, cot sheets, bows, sleepsuits. (I am planning on a haul video coming up soon!)
IM CRAVING: melon, ice lollies, refreshing things!
IM LOVING: Feeling her move loads and thinking about what she'll look like!

I'VE BEEN MEANING TO: Vlog and blog more, as per usual, but I am on it, and I am planning on uploading more! YAY.
