Pregnancy Update - Week 14

It feels very good officially being in my second trimester. All the worry has gone, most of the horrible symptoms are gone and I'm starting to enjoy being pregnant.

Sleep: I'm starting to get back to my old sleeping routine now rather than the ALL THE SLEEP ALL THE TIME one I was in a few weeks ago.

Eating: I made the mistake of letting myself get too hungry this week and when I finally did eat I threw it back up again which was pretty unpleasant. It's a bit of a pain having to eat every hour or so to make sure I don't feel like I'm going to faint and be sick and having to make sure I've got healthier options rather than usual snacky, quick food but I'm getting used to it now!

Clothes: Last week I went through my wardrobe and tried on everything I own to see if it still fits and more than half of my wardrobe was retired to the spare room as a result! The majority of my clothes have fitted waists but my once much smaller waist is now creeping out to meet my hips so the only dresses that fit are jersey ones or ones with waists I can pull up over my little bump. I have however discovered the joys of maternity leggings which are possibly the greatest invention ever.

Mood: Really good! I'm going to be writing a lengthy post on this but I'm currently on the lowest dose of medication for my mental health than I've been on in around five years. It's a bit scary but I have honestly never felt so content. My brain definitely likes being pregnant!

Worries: None really! (Bloody hell...pregnancy has changed me.)

Bump: It's small but it's there. My belly is getting quite hard and I'm noticing it if I bump into anything or try and bend forwards because it's no longer pliable and squishy!

Best bit: Seeing our little Pea at the scan this week and him jumping around and wriggling whenever I spoke! It was such an indescribable feeling!

My little jumping pea touching his face!

Worst bit: I was feeling a bit glum about the fact that I'm not allowed to have a water birth due to my high BMI earlier in the week. I've done a lot of research and the only reason hospitals have the cut off is if I need to get out of the water quickly and I'm not able to do it myself, they won't be able to lift me. It feels a little unfair but at the same time I want them to be able to do everything they can and quick should anything go wrong.

Symptoms: Nausea is slowly getting easier but it's still here, especially during and after I've eaten (which is basically all the time anyway!) but it's not as bad as it was. My nausea has been upgraded to vomiting for the first time though which is pretty unpleasant. It usually happens if I wait until I'm super hungry to eat and for some reason my body can't cope with that so it rejects what I eat. Not fun!

Movement: None yet.

Looking forward to: My next scan in 6 weeks!
