23 Week Pregnancy Update

So it’s official Santa comes in just under a week and I am now 23 weeks pregnant, this is crazy! I have had a pretty hectic week catching up with friends and sorting out lots of blog stuff but it’s all fun and games just before the madness happens. I had my Christmas party last week which I mentioned to you all and we had a lovely time. Time to chat to you all about what’s been happening in the last week so let’s get started!
How far along? 23 weeks
Maternity clothes: I have been loving my new George Asda pieces this week, I was starting to feel a little sad as I hadn’t found any nice maternity Christmas jumpers but luckily I found a couple on the Asda website which you can see above (maternity heart jumper). I’ve also been loving my black Asda jeggings super comfortable and easy to wear, I really needed a pair of black trousers so these have fitted into my wardrobe perfectly and the bump band offers so much support.


Sleep: I’ve not slept that great this week, I’m not sure whether it’s because it’s a little milder in the evenings but for some reason I’m just a little uncomfortable in bed and I’ve also been suffering with quite a bad tailbone pain in the nights and achy legs this must be a pregnancy symptom as baby puts a little more pressure on my body so I hope that goes soon although I don’t think it will.
Miss anything? Not really missing anything just excited about everything to come.
Movement: Lots of movement this week and Baby Prideaux is starting to show off with many kicks and jabs, I love watching him kick and I can’t wait to get even bigger so Mark can catch the movements too.
Food cravings: Nothing really, I have just been really naughty this week eating anything and everything in sight which isn’t great but hey it’s Christmas! I can enjoy fruit and veg in the New year!
Gender: Boy!
Labour signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Feeling much better emotionally this week but I have had quite a lack of energy, I’m putting this down to the way I’ve been eating so I should take a little more care of this in the weeks to come I’m sure it’s nothing a lovely Christmas dinner can’t sort out and lots of chocolates!
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time? Quite happy this week, I have my moments where I just feel like a big fat whale and totally gross but when I get like this I just have a little pamper and I usually feel a lot better after that.
Best moment this week: Best moment this week was seeing my best friend that I haven’t seen in 3 years as she has been travelling, it was lovely to finally see her again and introduce her to Vinny.
Looking forward to: I’m looking forward to my scan next week and midwife appointment, it’s going to be such a busy week next week but an exciting one. Vinny is so much more aware of Christmas now and Christmas day is going to be so magical this year!
How are you all and what are you most looking forward to this week?

  • Aww you look glowing! I love the white and pink jumper too x

  • Love the pics:) I'm 27 weeks today and this past week I've just started to feel the strain on my body, I have such a painful tail bone too. My left hip is so sore when I lye down at night but apart from that I've had pretty good health (very lucky). Exciting times to come for us both in 2016:)x

  • Love the jumpers and your little bump =]


  • Aw you look amazing! I'm 23 weeks on Tuesday and am just ballooning because I'm in pain and can't exercise so get my energy from over eating, not good! Love your heart jumper, I have a few bits from George too, they're comfy aren't they? Have a lovely Christmas xx
