My Week 19 and 20 Pregnancy Update

“Your baby is the size of a mango and now measures 10 inches from head to heel. They are growing bigger and stronger every day and key senses are still forming eventually enabling them to smell, see, hear, touch and taste. You are officially at the halfway stage now and you will feel those flutters and kicks any day now.”

Today I am 20 weeks plus 4 days and I am so pleased to have had turned a corner in my pregnancy. These past two weeks have been so so lovely.

Moods: very happy, content and just feel really lucky to have got this far in my journey.

Stretch marks? No stretch marks yet however, I am applying Bio Oil twice a day and after having a bath/ shower I apply the Palmer's Cocoa Butter . I love using oil and butter and feel like I am bonding with baby every time I apply it to my growing bump. I know butter isn't for everyone, but I really enjoy using it. I would suggest warming it up in your hands first to let it melt a little bit.

Cravings: No actual 'I must have it now' cravings, but I am really enjoying fresh fruit such as peaches and nectarines!

Sleep: Sleep has been much better recently and I now go through the night without waking.

Symptoms: Brittle hair and some acne has come back on my face (I knew I jinxed it!)

Best moment this week: Our 20 week scan yesterday. We attended our anomaly scan yesterday at the hospital and are over the moon that everything is perfect and right on track. I find the whole pregnancy process fascinating and I have my nose constantly in a book, really enjoying finding out more and more! I was just in awe of our baby wriggling about on the screen, seeing the four chambers of the heart and seeing it's little lips was mind blowing!

Worst moment this week: Not being able to get outside much because of this awful wet and rainy summer!

Movement: I am still having the 'rolling' sensations, but they are definitely becoming more prominent.

Gender: Soon to be revealed...

Looking forward to: Going out for lunch tomorrow with my grandparents, and seeing my best friend on Friday
