20 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2 ♥
Last week we had our 20 week scan and it was great to see the baby again. They were moving around lots and I was surprised when the consultant kind of gave us an indication that the gender may not be what we were told at our private gender scan at 19 weeks... He's sending us for an anomaly scan in one or two weeks time (I'm just waiting for the appointment letter) so hopefully we'll get a definite confirmation then as that scan is 20 minutes long and will be looking for any defects or syndromes in the baby. Fingers crossed all will be fine and that we'll have another healthy baby on our hands.
My iron levels are already beginning to lower, they were 12.7 when I began this pregnancy and they're now 11.3 so I began taking an iron supplement this week along with my pregnancy vitamin. I've been doing pretty well this week apart from almost fainting in the city, I don't know if it was the crowds or what but I had to collapse on a manky step in a shopping centre and Jacek had to get me water and a sandwich - this isn't the first time this has happened during pregnancy either. I hope this doesn't continue because I'll be afraid to leave the house on my own with Tyler Lee, eek!
Baby is the size of a - Palmier cookie, according to my Ovia pregnancy app. I'm love being able to see baby's size in relation to Parisian bakery treats.
I'm looking forward to - the anomaly scan where we'll get to see baby in more detail and for twenty minutes.
My favourite moment was - seeing the baby again and Tyler Lee falling asleep in my arms on Christmas Eve - that boy melts my heart.
I've been feeling - much better this week, I'm just longing for the rain to stop so we can all go and get some fresh air.
I've been buying for baby - I've finally purchased some clothes for the baby! I've bought a vintage item on Etsy for them and have picked up some gorgeous bodysuits and 6-9 month outfits and cardigans for them in the sale, I couldn't resist the bargains! As you can see in the pictures above, I've picked up some sunny yellow for my summer baby.
I'm missing - my glass of bubbly at Christmas and now with the New Year happening tomorrow. I need to go and get an alcohol-free sparkling drink!
I'm craving - nothing really this week. I didn't gorge on chocolate during Christmas and my stocking is still full. We've been having chicken, mash, stuffing and veg for dinner since St. Stephens Day and I'm pretty happy with that to be honest.
I'm loving - Jacek having five days off work together so that we can spend some quality time together as a family.
I've been meaning to - clear out a space to put the things that I've been buying for the baby. It will be done this week, promise...!
I can't wait for - my silent reflux to end, it's tearing my throat to bits!
