Week 15, 16 & 17 Pregnancy Update

I decided to combine these weeks as all of the symptoms have been the same throughout.
I am still suffering with sickness, but this does seem to be easing off now. I've worked out that I cannot let myself get hungry, so I always have a stash of biscuits in my handbag.

The bump is starting to show now, definitely more 'rounded'. I haven't got any stretch marks yet and have been combining Bio Oil with Palmers Tummy Butter. My skin has also cleared up recently and I am feeling more confident within myself again.

I have also been using my new pregnancy pillow - the DreamGenii. I do however, keep rolling over onto my back and wake up during the night incredibly uncomfortable. I love sleeping on my back/ front and it's taking some time getting used to sleeping on my side.

My appetite has decreased again and I'm having to force myself to eat - little and often is best. I love fruit at the moment, but I wouldn't say it was a craving as such. I just love the juicy-ness as I have been quite thirsty in this hot weather.

Unfortunately, I still have my cough/ cold so went back to the doctor's again and they have diagnosed me with 'whooping cough' also known as the '100 day cough'. I'm thankful that it is now the summer holidays, so I can really take the time to relax and look after myself.

We also have our date through for our 20 week scan - August 8th. We are getting asked a lot if we are going to find out the gender. We were going to keep it as a surprise, but after a lot of going back and forth, we have changed our minds to find out. As it's our first baby, I am feeling anxious, so I do think it will give me something to focus on and enjoy after a difficult start to this journey.

I am really looking forward to feeling baby move now that we are in the second trimester. It must be a weird but incredible feeling. x
