Bump Update - 14 Weeks
14 weeks already! It's flying by so quickly already that I'm scared to miss any single moment. With Paige's pregnancy I felt like I experienced everything 110% and this time I'm busy running after Paige. I don't want to miss a thing.
This week the baby is the size of a lemon. He/she can now frown, squint and suck it's thumb. Paige does this awesome grumpy face so this week I've imagined a tiny lemon sized Paige with her grumpy face on. It's made me giggle when I've felt sick.
A big change this week... I stopped taking my anti sickness tablets. Part of my decision to stop taking them was because I had run out. Getting both me and Paige ready and walking to the doctors is a pain. I know, silly reason but I guess I needed a reason to try going it alone. I hated taking them I really did. I know that the baby is healthy but you can't help but feel guilty when pregnant. The first two day were awful, luckily it was timed just right as it was a weekend and Mark was off work so I got to sleep when I needed to and just rested, a lot! The third day was a lot better, I felt half normal until around 1pm and then 9pm. These times I feel sick. I'm not sure why but hopefully it will get better. In total I was sick 3 times this week which I think is pretty damn good. I had more bad days than good day but it was close and at least I had some good days.
Tiredness is still a problem but I think it's slowly getting better. I'm not sure if it will get 100% better as I'm chasing after Paige all day but we will see. I'm not sleeping too well either.. I sleep soundly until around 5am and then can't seem to fall back asleep properly.
I'm still feeling the baby move once or twice a day which is lovely. I can't wait for Mark to start feeling him/her moving.
I'm still in my normal clothes and my skin is still pretty bad but I think its getting better. I still haven't had any cravings and to be honest I think I'm starting to go off food. I'm not enjoying meals at all.
I think that is about everything. Catch up on 13 weeks if you missed it and I will be back next week with week 15!
