16 weeks. 16 weeks already?? That sure came around fast. I clearly remember telling Betty’s Pre school teacher that I was only 8 weeks and feeling really down about it as it was going so slowly and now I’m 16 weeks and I’m wondering where those past 8 weeks have gone!
Not a huge amount has happened to be honest apart from the bump popping out, the sickness ending (hurrah!) and starting to feel teeny tiny flutters.
I am so excited to see my bump grow, it’s one of the best bits of being pregnant for me, it makes me feel so confident and although my face and arse balloon to a ridiculous size I bloody love it. I wear tighter clothes to show off my bump and well, people just have to put up with the large behind being squeezed into a Breton stripe dress! In fact I got so excited by my body changing this time that I pretty much changed into maternity clothes as soon as I saw the positive test, pretty crazy really as everything just hung off me, thankfully I’m starting to fit into the bits I bought in the sales!
Teeny tiny flutters started from around 14 weeks with the odd big old boot by my belly button a couple of times (gotta be a boy!). They really are faint at the moment and they have no pattern yet, I’m looking forward to them getting stronger so I can keep a close check on this baby. I cannot wait for the day that Betty can feel it kick too, she’s constantly kissing and tickling my tummy and asking if the baby is laughing at her, it’ll be so lovely when she can feel and see it moving around.
I don’t think there’s much else to report at the moment. I’m counting down the days until our 20 weeks scan, I am desperate to see the baby again and hopefully find out what we’re having.
I’ll pop back soon with some other pregnancy bits and an exciting collaboration announcement too so keep a look out for that.
