As I write this it still feels so weird how fast this pregnancy has flown by compared to my first, but also hubby and I were just looking at our baby girls nursery and we feel so bad! Again with Lorenzo everything was ready really early which I guess was out of eximent and this time around it’s looking more like a room full of stuff we just never put away and just dump in her room…. So my Misson over the next few weeks is to finally get my bum into gear and do her room! Please tell me I’m not the only mumma who for the second pregnancy everything just doesn’t get done?
This week’s symptoms:
• acid reflux has been a big struggle for me this week and I definitely need to just look into what tablets to buy and kill this in the bum as it’s making everything 10x harder for this mumma.
• nausea because of really bad acid reflux has been a bitch… If I bend over it all just flows back up and not in a good way or I end up standing there acting like I’m in labour and I find breathing in & out really helps!?
• lower stomach pains which has been a thing for the past three weeks. Honestly I feel like this is just going to be a weekly update as the bigger I’m getting of course things are more tender and tighter in the down stairs area. And I am still working full time and my class room I’m working in is ages from 1-2 year Olds so it’s so much bending over.
This week wasn’t too many symptoms which has been super nice but I feel like they have been big annyoning ones for me.
How I’m feeling:
I’m slowly feeling myself to giving up a little and I don’t mean in the giving up kind of way I kind of mean I’m just “struggling” I’m finding hubby is doing heaps more and I feel so guilty but at the same time so thankful as some nights I’m in that much pain I’m crying or I’m in bed because I can’t sit up. This week was my 26th birthday and honestly I just wasn’t feeling it at all and just wanted to have a nap and wake up when it was over.
Baby girls size:
According to my app baby girl is the size of a eggplant and I’m definitely feeling that this week! Also according to my app she is probably about 23cm long & 0.77kgs with only 15 weeks left to go!
Baby girls movements:
Asking for a friend “aka me!?” How do you stop a two year old from wanting to be held all the time and climb all over the baby bump? Because I already have a brother & sister fight going on and it’s driving this mumma crazy! Because Lorenzo keeps doing this baby girl is kicking up a very strong fight back but also she tends to move down very low in my pelvis area and then the pain starts for me. So yeah I would say she is going to be a little fire cracker just like our son and lord help this mumma!
This week we also have seen a massive change in our toddler and he definitely has become way more aware that baby girl is here and she’s here to stay it’s been so hard as he’s become super attached to me and even at work has been in my class room as he just doesn’t settle very well at the moment, we definitely have made him aware of this pregnancy and talking about him being a big brother and how baby girl will love him and he’ll love her etc but we definitely are looking into this more as I think it’s really starting to hit him hard.
Can’t wait to update you all again very soon
