It’s been a few weeks since my last update so I thought I’d just talk you through all three weeks we’ve missed on the blog today. I can’t believe the last time we spoke bumps was before Christmas it feels like so long ago already and I’m so excited to finally say I’m having a baby this year!
How far along? 26 weeks
Maternity clothes: I’ve not really worn anything new recently, I have been sticking to my H&M jeans I have a couple of pairs an off black pair and a navy pair and I’ve been switching between the two mixing it up with different tops although I have been wearing a lot of black because I’m just feeling huge now and that’s the only thing I can do to make me feel better.
Sleep: I’ve not been sleeping too bad, over Christmas Mark had some time off so our bedtime schedule ended up getting later and later and I also wasn’t too well over Christmas so my sleep wasn’t amazing but I’m glad to say we have just got back to normal, I’m feeling better and I’m sleeping pretty good.
Miss anything? Not baby related but I’m missing slightly longer hair so I’ve decided to grow it a little, mainly to be prepared for labour so I can wear my hair up in a topknot!
Movement: Lots of movement over the past few weeks, I see baby move all the time now and they are so strong he wakes up every evening around 8 and kicks for a good hour or two it’s so cute.
Food cravings: Not really, I’ve been trying to eat a little healthier since Christmas as I seemed to have eaten the whole house over the festive period.
Labour signs: Nope!
Symptoms: I’ve had a few new symptoms this week, first of all my ribs! My ribs have been so sore and causing me so much discomfort lately and I did read that this is totally normal as they are moving making room for my lungs as baby grows. I’ve also been having tightenings where I swear my tummy is so hard and uncomfortable and I’m guessing that could be braxton hicks, I never really noticed braxton hicks with Vinny and never had any pain with them so I’m guessing that’s what it is.
Belly button in or out? Belly button is in, I don’t think it will pop out but this week I had to take my belly button ring out as it was starting to get sore.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time? I’m a bit all over the place really, some days I’m super happy but it only takes something small to change my mood.
Best moment this week: The best moment over the past few weeks has to be Christmas and seeing baby Christmas week at our scan, we got an awesome picture with him giving us a little thumbs up and he was so active at the scan kicking the whole way through. What a cutie!
Looking forward to: I’m looking forward to getting to my third and final trimester, I know it’s a few weeks away yet but with how quick these weeks are going I’m sure it will be here in no time. I just can’t wait to meet this little guy now I really want to meet him.
How are you all and what are you most looking forward to this week?
