Bump Update - 16 Weeks
This week the baby is around the size of an avocado. The circulation and urinary track are now fully functioning and the baby may even be playing with the umbilical cord.
I still have my stuffy nose and the odd headache which may be due to my low iron that we found out about in my 16 week midwife appointment.
At the start of the week I felt pretty rubbish. I managed another week without been sick but the nausea was very much still present. It was worse the days Paige woke up early and as a result of that I got less sleep. The relationship between sleep and nausea is strange to me. I never had it with Paige but then I could rest as much as I wanted. Food still sounds gross but I am managing to eat which is good. I haven't had any new cravings but I'm still enjoying fruit.
My skin is still rubbish although I have hope of it getting better.
I'm feeling bigger movements but still none from the outside yet. Still have plenty of time for that :)
Apart from that not much has happened this week. I found my old Doppler that we had with Paige but just like with Paige it is crap and doesn't pick up anything. I'm not worried as we heard the heartbeat at the midwife appointment and I can still feel the baby moving. I just wish Mark could hear the heartbeat as he wasn't able to come to the appointment with me.
Don't forget to check out week 15.
Thanks for reading,
