On Monday night I began getting a pain in my ribs again and I knew I was going to experience that awful pain again. It's suspected gallstones and honestly, I wouldn't wish the pain of the flare-ups on my worst enemy. Thankfully, this episode wasn't as bad as the previous ones as I was able to control my breathing and began sipping on lemon water whilst lying on my left-hand side. Once I got sick I was fine again and to be honest, when this happens it's a relief to be throwing up. I have to wait for an ultrasound to confirm that it actually is gallstones but from what my GP says, it is.
This week I've also began seriously thinking about baby's name. I've come up with a new favourite and have a middle name to go with it too but knowing me this will all change soon enough as I can't seem to stick to a name, something always puts me off it. I do really love this name though and can picture the child who would have the name and it seems to fit perfectly, I even have a nickname to go with it!
Hopefully my next week of pregnancy will see my health improving. I also hope all will be okay with baby tomorrow at the anomaly scan, when I get some reassurance I'll be able to relax a little!
Baby is the size of a - bunch of grapes, according to my Ovia pregnancy app.
I'm looking forward to - the anomaly scan, which is finally happening tomorrow. I hope all is okay with the baby and it'll be lovely to see him or her again.
My favourite moment was - going out to the fairy woods with my boys, it was great to get some fresh air and to capture some gorgeous pictures too.
I've been feeling - anxious, ill and quite weak. Hopefully next week will be a better week.
I've been buying for baby - nothing this week as I'm trying to curb my spending a little as it'll be Tyler Lee's birthday in just under a month and I want to save up to take him somewhere nice on the day.
I'm missing - being warm, I am freezing all the time, even when I'm lying under my duvet in bed. The spring and summer can't come quick enough.
I'm craving - nothing really still but when I saw a picture of someone's delicious Sunday roast I had to have one for myself. I'd eat it again now if I had it!
I'm loving - finally having the box room cleared out. The next step will be painting it and making preparations for either Tyler Lee to move back in there so that we can get him into his toddler bed or to make it a nursery for the baby.
I've been meaning to - make an appointment to get my hair done. Jacek got me a voucher for Christmas and I'd like to have my hair done before Valentine's Day.
I can't wait for - tomorrow when we have the anomaly scan.
