This was meant to be posted on Friday, but I gave myself a week off from youtube and blogging kind of slipped away from me too. After Liam's accident last Monday and him having to take a week off work, I felt pretty stressed and I definitely feel better for the little break. I just need to find my motivation again to get back into this.
Anywhooo, I will post my week 16 update on Friday as normal. :)
How far along? 15 Weeks
Total weight gain: I don't actually know. We've had to take the battery out of our scales for something else. :/
Maternity clothes? No new ones.
Stretch marks? A few pre-pregnancy ones on the tops of my thighs are much more visible. Joy.
Best moment this week: Attending my '16' week midwife appointment and listening to the heartbeat on her doppler. At least I know what I here on mine is definitely baby now.
Miss anything? Feeling energetic and motivated. I constantly feel like a tubs, lazy blob.
Movement: I thought maybe I had felt flutters this week. It felt more like someone was stroking my insides. (ooh-er) Since then I haven't really felt anything so now I'm not so sure.
Food cravings: Steak, burgers and anything meaty. I think I actually had some form of beef for at least three days in a row this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not so much. Still smells every now and then. I think my random days of sickness are finally coming to an end.
Gender: No idea. I'm getting really impatient now and I just want to start calling bub by their name!
Labor signs: No.
Symptoms: Breathlessness, cravings, stuffy sinuses and incredibly dry skin. My poor lips have been chapped all week and nothing is touching it. I've also noticed my scalp is really dry too. Poop.
Belly button in or out? In
Engagement ring on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: I'd like to say happy, but I have found myself snapping a lot. If I'm feeling incredibly moody, I tend to like being on my own. I'd rather not inflict it on anyone else.Looking forward to: Christmas! There isn't really anything before that now to look forward to. The 20 week scan seems like miles away!
