16 Weeks Pregnant – A Photo And An Update

by Jessica Amey

I didn’t post my 15 week bump post last week as I didn’t get round to it so now I’m 16 weeks pregnant and my bump looks quite a lot bigger!

I had my 16 week appointment with the midwife yesterday and heard the heartbeat which was lovely and I have been feeling movement for the last couple of weeks which is the bit I love most about being pregnant. The first few times where really subtle but now I can tell when they are moving around in there, and it’s usually at night-time, surprise surprise!

I have been craving healthy food like vegetables, chicken and eggs which is good as last time all I wanted to eat was cake! Sweet potatoes are a particular favourite, as is haloumi cheese!

I have been feeling back to my usual self over the last week too, I have the occasional day where I feel a bit peaky but compared to how I was feeling, I can’t really complain.

I have also decided what to do about the whooping cough vaccine. I spoke to my midwife and she said it is fine to have it after giving birth so I am going to do that. My friend who lives in Australia said that this is the way they do it over there. The baby will get the anti-bodies through my breast milk and I will obviously be protected so won’t be able to pass it on to them. I just feel better about doing it this way so am relieved I have made a decision.

We are off on holiday on Monday and then when we get back it won’t be long until our 20 week scan when we can find out whether I am right about it being a boy in there!

I have already started to think about the birth and what I can do to try and make sure I have the drug-free positive labour that I so badly wanted last time. The main thing for me is being able to relax and being at fit as possible so I have started yoga and am also going to be doing a hypnobirthing course. I went to an taster session a couple of weeks ago and listened to what it is all about and I am sure that it is the right thing to help me, I have a post coming up next about it…
