Today I am 22 weeks pregnant which means that baby is the size of a large mango, which is odd as last week it was the size of a spaghetti squash and they are bigger!
I am not in a very good mood today so it’s probably not the best time to write this post but I will anyway, so I can have a bit of a moan.
I think my tummy is growing because it’s achy and feels really stretched and big. It is definitely a lot bigger than when I was pregnant with Cherry, although I stupidly didn’t take any photos last time so I can’t compare.
I am still so tired all the time and keep getting headaches, plus the other day my cheeks came up in a weird purple rash so I had to have my blood tested to check for anti-bodies to the slapped cheek disease which can be quite dangerous to catch when pregnant.
I think I might have also caught Cherry’s bug off her last week because I felt especially tired and dizzy, although luckily I wasn’t actually sick. My gag reflex is working overtime again and although it sounds like I am coughing I am actually trying not to be sick!
My appetite is coming and going, some evenings I eat loads and others I don’t feel like eating anything but I am always partial to a chocolate caramel digestive washed down with a cup of hot chocolate.
I have been sorting out all of Cherry’s clothes and what didn’t sell has been donated to charity, I am now looking forward to replacing it with boys stuff although I will probably wait a few more weeks, just in-case.
Cherry is now aware that she is having a ‘brother’ and when I picked up some baby clothes this morning she said ‘those are for our baby brudder’ which was very cute. She still asks me to lift up my top so that she can talk to the baby although when she is tired she has been known to say some not very nice things to it!
I know pregnancy is an amazing and I do love feeling a baby moving around in me but to be honest I am kind of over being pregnant already. I just hate not feeling like myself and being uncomfortable and tired all the time and I know things are going to get a lot more cramped over the next few months! I planned to lots of exercise this time but it’s just not happening, it’s hard enough to get off the sofa, let alone go swimming.
Anyway I am sure I am just having a bad week and will feel back to normal
happy happier self soon!
