February 8th- 10 weeks 1day
Oh my gosh it’s only 12 days until my 3 month scan finallyyyyyy! It helps that my birthday is next Friday so I’m looking forward to that and then my scan is the following Tuesday!!! God I can’t wait to start posting these posts on my blog and be able to write about my pregnancy on my social media! It’s been so so hard keeping it a secret as we’ve known for what feels like bloody forever ago.
Emotional state- I’m good this week, my moods are still quite bad, one minute I’m good the next I don’t want to talk to anyone! Work seems to have sorted itself out now and my hours are no longer in jeopardy so my emotions are good thanks to that being sorted. Have I cried this week? Hmm nope I don’t think I have you know! This week my poor Connor has had the dreaded chicken pox, although I was very happy he’d finally got them! So I think my emotions have sort of been distracted 😂. It’s half term next week which means Connor will have been home for 2 full weeks so we’ll see how my emotional state is doing by then!! Wish me luck!
Cravings- ok so McDonald’s is becoming a problem. I really really want it all the time and because I can’t have it everyday like I wish I could it’s kind of affecting my mood. I took Connor to maccy ds while we were shopping earlier and I thought I’ll just have a cheese burger, you know be good and get something off the pound saver menu. I didn’t even have chips! But I wish I’d ordered 3 because i could of easy ate it over and over again🙄. I’m really trying to cook proper meals but this week my appetite seems to be all over the place. And I’m still getting the sickness during the day and evening so I’m trying to eat through that aswell. Foods becoming a nightmare basically. I’m also extremely gutted I can’t eat PEPERAMI’s! I love these and could eat a million now I’m pregnant but reading up online it advises you to freeze them 4 days beforehand and well that just seems a bit eww. So I’m going to ask my midwife when I see her!
Things that are irritating me- umm I’ve had to rack my brain this week and I don’t think things are really “irritating me” as such. I get really HANGRY at the moment and if I’m not eating what I really fancy then that’s irritating as shit. But apart from that I think I’m good this week. Luke’s been working late all week so I haven’t really seen him so he’s in the clear for once 😂 it’s usually something to do with him that grates on me!
Tummy changes- This week I have noticed a slight bump at the lower part of my tummy! It’s probably McDonald’s but it makes me feel better if it’s the start of my bump 😂. I’m still bloated as ever but I do think as soon as I’m over 3 months it’ll all start to calm down lots. I hope.
Things I’ve learnt from my googling obsession- So this week the main thing I googled was “what does a kumquat look like” because apparently that’s the size of the baby this week! So if you don’t know what a kumquat is it’s a weird fruit that’s the size of a small orange basically 🤦🏼♀️. Here’s a picture…
Here’s a weird fact for you, did you know the word midwife comes from the Anglo-Saxon word “mit wif” meaning “ with woman”.
On another note Disneyland is soooo close!! I’m so excited I went and changed up some euros and bought some travel sized products. Because we are only going for 3 nights I’m going to try and pack light with products etc but I know what I’m like, I’ll be throwing unnecessary shit in the suitcase soon enough!
I’m so excited to do our pregnancy reveal in the best place on Earth, we’re going to tell the kids over there too! So by the time you guys read this you’ll probably have already seen the reveal post!
I’m having to fight the urge to buy, god I’m desperate to buy little grey and white baby clothes and muslins and unnecessary crap. But I know we should wait till we are past 3 months so part of me is wanting this scan to hurry up just so I can start picking things up! When I was pregnant with Connor my mum and Grandma used to pick me up nappies or milk when they did their food shops and my step mum would pick us up bits that we wouldn’t really think of and store them up for us, so by the time I had Connor we had a million packs of nappies and 6 tubs of milk and so much stuff! So I’m definitely going to do that again this time.
Is it bad that I’ve already set up my amazon baby wish list?! This time round I’m determined to be prepared for everything, a teeny tiny prem baby again, a gigantic full term baby, baby bags packed, maternity in place and just enjoy it all. And if McDonald’s is what baby wants then who am I to deny it?!
