I was planning on posting an announcement post Friday 9th May but here goes a bit late... I'm pregnant! So weird to be announcing it on here as I've known for some time but couldn't share anything online as a lot of family weren't aware til after the 12 week mark! I'm going to start posting stuff on my instagram relating to the topic, so you could check here for updates and there for pics!
I'm not sure yet if I'll be doing these posts weekly or every 4 weeks, as my track record with weekly posts is quite bad and also I can't see much changing body wise or anything in the first while so I may do every 2 weeks for now and weekly as time goes by. Let me know what you think :)
How far along? 15 weeks and 3 days.
Total weight gain/measurements: a few pounds (not 100% sure!).
I don't have access to a weighing scales unless I visit my parents which is normally in the evening time and bad time to try to get an accurate weight.
Maternity clothes: Not yet, some of my clothes are getting a little snug but that depends on the item of clothing and where I purchased it! I did recently purchase some maternity clothes on New Look and ASOS websites and will do a post on my purchases once they arrive ;)
Stretch marks: I already had stretch marks on my stomach and hips so it would be very difficult for me to tell if I'm getting new ones but I am currently using Vaseline Spray and Go Essential Moisture on my tummy, arms and legs to keep moisturised.
Sleep: I can't sleep in in the mornings any more which is very disappointing to me as I love my sleep! I find myself having to get up during the night less and more first thing in the morning when I'm slightly awake for bathroom breaks!
Best moment this week: Feeling a heartbeat/slight movement in my tum - not sure if it's my heartbeat or babies!! ha. It was also Daniel's birthday this week so we went out for Date Night Saturday.
Miss anything? Energy and I guess I would say going to the gym! It gave me energy and a feel good factor that I won't get for a while :(
Movement: I think I slightly felt movement in the cinema when we went to see the new X-men movie but I can't be sure - it's still a bit early to tell!
Food cravings: Ice cream was a craving the first few weeks when I had bad sickness And now I'm madly craving gravy fries! I'm obsessed with gravy fries at the moment! I'm also slightly wanting BBQ food more ;)
Anything making you queasy or sick? Diet Coke used to make me so sick in the early weeks but that's gone now! Nothing in particular would make me sick but at random times I'd find myself needing to take a step back and just relaxing to not get sick. I would normally be sick in the evening time too which sucked but was good in terms of work! I could say cleaning makes me sick (happened Saturday) but I guess things that normally gross me out would set me off!
Gender: Unknown - we will be finding out but it won't be until July when we can know :(
Labour signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Tired, emotional, not queasy or sick that much.
Belly button in or out? In, and hope it stays that way!
Wedding rings on or off? Not married!! So from now on I'm just going to remove this question ;)
Happy or moody most of the time: Moody ;) My poor boyfriend :P
Looking forward to: My 20 week appointment! I had my first 12 weeks scan and found out I was only 9 and half weeks along so had to go back for another12 week/dating scan to find out when baby is due! We found out we have a very active baby!
Keep an eye out here for more updates and reviews of products etc.
Lots of Love
