Feeling:In general, I do like to do things a bit back to front, and it seems that this week, I have got that burst of energy I was meant to get in the second trimester. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not swinging from the chandeliers until the early hours – far from it in fact, I’m usually in bed by 10pm latest – but in general, I’m feeling a lot better in myself and have a lot more energy.
The mood swings seem to have settled for the time being too, and Mr M and I are having a lovely relaxed long weekend so far.
I haven’t had any more pain like I did last week, I’ve had bouts of heartburn, but nothing terrible, and a few aches and pains which have passed pretty quickly. I have had a fair bit of constipation this week, which left me feeling a bit wretched, but I won’t go into that – TMI!
Appointments: I had my 28 week midwife appointment this week and all is well. Bump is measuring 30cm, which is slightly bigger than it should be, but she is not worried as long as I stay on the right growth curve. I am 5’10”, so I’m not sure if being taller than average may make a difference to your measurements – surely not everyone can be the same, it must be an average?
Looking: A few strangers have commented on my bump this week, so I’m definitely noticeably pregnant now. I think I am starting to put weight on my face and bum too, which is a bummer, but I’m not going to get worked up about it.
Craving: Orange juice.
Sleeping: Sleeping is continuing to be really good this week. It’s making such a difference. I’ve used the BH weekend to really catch up on sleep and am reaping the benefits in terms of energy.
Baby is the size of: A cucumber
