Pregnancy – Weeks 18 – 20

I can’t believe that I am 20 weeks pregnant today, 5 months and officially half way through. It’s crazy how quickly the time has flown by since 12 weeks, just seems to be getting quicker by the week.

Not a lot has happened since my last post but we did attend a Mothercare event. I received an email asking if we wanted to book places to attend their Expectant Parent Event and we booked in straight away. We received a little goody bag and 10% off purchases on the night that really came in handy. The night was set around different talks for different categories; nursing, nursery, prams, and so on but the talk I was most interested in was for the Red Cross. A brief chat and demonstration on first aid for babies and toddlers. As scary as it was, it was really helpful and put my mind at ease a bit if anything bad were to happen. The event was really interesting and helpful and I highly recommend booking yourself in if you receive the email.

We have our 20 week scan on Tuesday and you all probably know by now just how excited we are to find out the gender, we can not wait! Keep your eyes peeled for the gender reveal post!!

How far along? 20 weeks!!!

Total weight gain: 7lbs now.

Maternity clothes? With the hot weather recently, I’ve been living in my maxi dresses and they all fit perfectly on my little bump now.

Cravings? Still coke and last week all I wanted was cheese and onion sandwiches.

Stretch marks? Nope.

Best moments this week? The Mothercare event was fun and it was nice being surrounded by so many other people in the same situations as us.

Miss anything? I’ve seen so many pretty crop tops and playsuits recently and I’m starting to miss being able to wear clothes like that.

Movement? Lots of little wiggles recently, so fun feeling it randomly here and there.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope. My migraines have been so much better recently.

Gender? Find out in 2 days!!!

Labour signs? No.

Symptoms? Nothing major at the moment, just slight tummy pains now and then where my stomach is stretching but that’s it.

Sleep? Still a little restless and keep waking up at 6:30am again. Sometimes I’m having to nap for a couple of hours in the afternoon to catch up on lost sleep.

Belly button in or out? In

Happy or moody most of the time? Happy pretty much most of the time.

Looking forward to? Gender reveal!!

How are you getting on in your pregnancy?
