16 weeks: Bumpdate

16 weeks

 

Feeling; I’m having moments of feeling slightly less tired this week. Woo hoo. I’ve been getting a slight back ache and feel slightly uncomfortable when sitting or lying for long periods, so I just need to make sure I keep moving and it eases off. I’ve also had a headache pretty much constantly this week, which ended up as a migraine on Friday, but my lovely Twitter friends assure me that this is normal, so I’ve stopped worrying now.

Appointments: I had my 16-week midwife appointment this week. It was the first time I had met my midwife… I will reserve judgement for now. Everything was fine with my bloods, blood pressure, urine etc, but the most exciting part was that I got to hear Little R-M’s heartbeat. Such a special moment.

Looking: Bump has definitely expanded this week. It seems to be moving up under my boobs and I feel like it’s starting to look a bit more like a bump now. Yay.

Craving: I’ve lost my appetite a bit this week and haven’t really been craving much at all. I turned down a roast dinner today. Never known before.

Sleeping:Still quite good this week, but I can’t stay in bed too long as my back really starts to ache.
