21 week pregnancy update

“Your baby now weighs about 360g and is nearly 26.7cm long. This is about as long as a carrot. Her skin is transparent and gradually turning from pink to red, as capillaries form underneath. Her eyebrows are becoming thicker, her lips are more defined, and her eyes are moving rapidly under her closed eyelids”

This week I haven't felt quite like myself. I am struggling with my bodies changes and it doesn't help when people are commenting "look at your boobs!", "Look how big you are getting" when you are feeling a bit self-conscious, it's the last thing you want to hear. 

Moods: a bit 'down in the dumps' 

Stretch marks? No stretch marks yet however, I am still applying Bio Oil twice a day and after having a bath/ shower I apply the Palmer's Cocoa Butter 

Cravings: No actual 'I must have it now' cravings, I am still enjoying fresh fruit. Although I have taken a fancy to crunchies! 

Sleep: I knew I was going to jinx this! I'm finding it harder to get comfortable at night again. Once I have found a good sleep position, it seems to last for a week and then I am back to square one! 

Symptoms: I have been to the hairdressers this week and had the most wonderful treatment applied to my hair. I've also had a good inch taken off of the ends and it does look a lot better. 

Best moment this week: Going to the hairdressers, seeing friends and relaxing at home. 

Worst moment this week: Feeling like I can't wear anything, nothing seems to fit! 

Movement: I am still having the 'rolling' sensations, but they are definitely becoming more prominent. I am finding the baby is moving the most at night. 

Gender: A gorgeous baby girl

Looking forward to: Seeing friends this week that I haven't seen for ages. I am still thoroughly enjoying the summer holidays.
