18 week pregnancy update

“Your baby is the size of a dragon fruit and is nearly six inches long. Its weight will increase about six-fold over the next month! Your baby is practicing breathing and its chest is moving in rhythm as if breathing air. Your baby’s hearing has now fully developed so it can hear the sounds coming from outside the womb much clearer.”

This week I have been so so tired! Having a full nights sleep, plus having a 3+ hour nap each day in the afternoons.
I've also noticed that my skin is so much brighter and clearer *hooray*

Movement wise, I am beginning to feel almost like a 'rolling' sensation in my lower abdomen. I notice this most when relaxing on the sofa in the evening, or when I am lying down in bed. It is so reassuring to know that either he/ she is making the most of the space in my tummy.

My breasts have also been feeling very sore and heavy again - I am wearing a sports bra when sleeping to give me a little bit of support.

We have also had our next scan date through - August 8th! Very exciting!
