March 4th- 14 weeks pregnant!
14 weeks, even though in all my previous blog posts I’ve moaned at how slow it feels like it’s going, I can’t believe I’m already at 14 weeks!!! 2 weeks left to wait before we find out if we’re team 💙 or team 💗. I’ve said before I’m not bothered this time around as long as they’re healthy but I know Connors going to kick my arse if I don’t deliver a brother!!
This week my connor has asked me all sorts of questions about the baby and he’s told everyone “my mummy’s got a baby in her tummy!” Including the woman serving us in primark over the weekend!! He melted my heart today whilst we were shopping, he picks out a little giraffe comforter and there was a pink, a blue, and a grey. Originally he picks the blue and says “can I get this for baby brother?” So I explain we still don’t know what colours to buy yet but I think we could get the grey one maybe? To which he replies “ yes mum good idea we can get the grey for baby and I’ll have the blue so we’re matching”. He’s asked me how the baby is planning to come out and where I bought the baby seeds from, can we get some back up seeds incase this ones a girl, are you going to have to squeeze the baby out like Rachel does from friends?, and finally I’m not sharing my beary with the baby so you’ll have to by him his own bear ok mum?! It amazes me how clued up he is though just by what he’s seen on tv, which makes it a little harder to give him a PG walk through of how a baby arrives 😂. Connor is so excited, I knew he would be but I didn’t realise he would be so interested!
We recorded the moment we told the kids which was right before we went in for our first full day at Disneyland and I don’t think we could have got better reactions! Connors face when he realises what we are saying made me go all teary it was just the best!!
Emotional state- It’s all starting to settle down now luckily, I mean don’t get me wrong I still have days where I wake up and think ahhh sod it I can’t be arsed to talk to people today! But I’m not sure I can blame that on pregnancy hormones😂 I think that’s just me in general!
Cravings- I’m happy to say my food intake has calmed. I don’t seem to be wanting really bad food very much anymore such as McDonald’s! The sickness has finally gone fully so I’m also not snacking as much so over all I’m quite happy at the moment with food etc!
Things that are irritating me- irritation is at an all time low at the moment, I’m not sure if this is because we’ve been away to Disneyland so I’ve not really been taking much notice. I’ll let you know next week!
Tummy changes- everything has started to harden. I’m not as uncomfortable as I was when it was bloating but I am living in leggings at the moment!
Things I’ve learnt from my googling obsession- this week I’m fascinated with the thought of encapsulating my placenta. I really really want to do it I’ve done lots of research on the health benefits and it can even help with PND if you were to suffer with it. So I’m hard at work finding out my local placenta companies and placenta pick ups/deliveries, I also have a ton of questions for my midwife when I see her Friday!
Also this week like I said above I’ve booked our 4D gender scan! I can’t believe in less than 2 weeks I’ll be almost 17w and will know what we’re having! So excitingggg 💗💙.
