How far along: Week 19
How big is baby: Baby is the size of a mango
Sleep: Absolutely no complaints. However I wake up so early as I need a wee and then once I’ve got up and been to the toilet I can’t get back to sleep.
Symptoms: I am now just down to being sick once a week (hurrah!). I am starting to really enjoy being pregnant and embracing the second trimester energy which I don’t think will be here to stay.
Best moment of this week: On the 1st July we went for a gender scan and found out we’re expecting a baby GIRL!
Miss anything: Nothing at all
Movement: I started to feel the baby on the 9th July. It was a very hot day and I was laid on my front in the paddling pool. Suddenly I felt a very strange sensation and it was like she was rolling over! I could only feel it when I was laid on my front. However today I have felt a few kicks! It seems as though we have skipped the ‘butterflies’ stage and gone straight for the big movements.
Food cravings: I am definitely more hungry now the sickness has stop. I’ve been eating a lot of past dinners to fill me up.
Anything making you queasy or sick: There doesn’t seem to be a trigger other than getting too hungry
Gender: Girl !
How’s your mood: Happy and excited for her to get here
Looking forward to: Our NHS 20 week scan which is in a week
The Bump: Growing rapidly
