Bump #2: 21 weeks pregnant

We’re into the second half of this pregnancy now and touch wood, things seem to have settled down and be going fairly well at the moment.


In fact I’ve been wracking my brains for things to update you on as to be honest, this week has been fairly uneventful. I even considered not doing an update, but I did them every week with Lottie, so I don’t want this bump to feel short changed.

My sleep is becoming more interrupted with toilet stops, but that’s to be expected, I guess. And I have pretty much constant back ache. But then I also have a toddler who is desperately trying to walk and demands me to hold her hands while she practically runs around the house, so what with that and the extra weight of the bump in front of me, it’s really no wonder that my back is aching.

I’m also finding that the weight is going on much more easily this time around. It’s not only my tummy that is expanding, but pretty much everything else as well. I’m probably eating more than I should, but then I’m hungry nearly all of the time, which I wasn’t with Lottie. I think perhaps it’s an energy craving thing as I don’t get as much chance to relax and take it easy.

I’m trying to think that it doesn’t matter and I’ll deal with it once the baby is here and is settled, but having always been a little on the larger side and incredibly conscious of it, it’s difficult to let it go unnoticed and to embrace the curves sometimes.

Aside from that and the fact that I cry if I so much as hear a slightly sad story about someone I don’t even know (bloody hormones!), there really isn’t much more to report this week, so I’m keeping things short and sweet and am off to put my feet up for once in front of Sunday night TV.
