Hi all,

Long time no post (I will be catching up with previous weeks as soon as possible).
Just thought I would give you a little update on bump and I.

Pregnancy Diary ~ 21 Weeks

This week I've felt particularly ill, the week started off with a serious bout of morning sickness which took me by surprise considering I had been feeling much better. The morning sickness then seemed to convert to some kind of head-cold/flu type thing which meant that I had to take a few days off work.
Today I have slept a record amount and really been trying hard to drink plenty of water so I'm hoping this awful illness will cease soon.

A few other things I've noticed this week:

Pregnancy Diary ~ 18 Weeks (The TMI post!)

Hello my lovelies,

Well don't I have some things to tell you this week...
 Firstly, I totally spoke to soon with the whole feeling great thing. I feel like I've been hit by a bus this week. Hubby has started a new role at work which means he has to get up at 04:30 most mornings to travel to work. This seems to be affecting me more than I realise as I am SO tired. When he gets up, I then have to get up to use the bathroom and it takes me an age to settle back to sleep by which time it's nearly time to get up anyway! Oh well, I can't moan. Feel sorry for hubby putting in all these long hours! One highlight this week was that he was able to see the baby kick as the movements this week have been getting stronger! It's such a lovely thing to be able to witness.

 A new (and very unexpected) symptom this week is...

Pregnancy Diary ~ 17 Weeks

Hi all,

This week (the day before Valentine's Day) I actually felt the baby move! And I was 100% sure that it was baby and not any internal motion. If I lay or sit very still I can feel a wriggling sensation which feels a little like I have a small eel inside my stomach. It really is the most peculiar feeling!
I'm hoping this will get stronger and stronger in the next few days as it's a really addictive feeling.

Pregnancy Diary ~ 16 Weeks

It always feels like 16 weeks should be held as a landmark pregnancy week. I don't really know why I feel this way. Maybe because weeks 12 and 20 are usually quite notable in the pregnancy calendar or maybe because it marks your 4th month beginning. Either way I was very pleased to reach this point.
My sickness is considerably less than this week than it has been in previous weeks (although I am still throwing up on occasion). I'm finding the nausea slightly more predictable. *

Pregnancy Diary ~ 15 Weeks

Hi all,
Here is my 15 week pregnancy update.

I started off the week with my head in the toilet bowl. Yuck. I thought this awfulness was supposed to wear off by now!! I suppose at least I know that the baby is growing and is healthy as I was a little concerned after having no sickness that something was wrong. My brain was telling me that I was somehow un-pregnant.
So obviously I can't win. Sickness= terrible, no sickness= worry.
