15 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2 ♥

I'm now at the end of my 15th week of pregnancy and I'm just waiting for the day when I can actually enjoy this pregnancy instead of having health problem after health problem... This week I got an awful dose of the flu, passed onto me by my darling little boy. He had such a hard few days with a high fever, runny noses, coughs and a course of antibiotics and all he wanted was cuddles from his mummy, so it's not surprising I then got sick myself - I really wish I had gotten a flu shot when I was at the doctors a couple of weeks ago!

I'm absolutely miserable, have been confined to my bed most of the week as I feel so dizzy and weak when I stand up. I've been throwing up, can't breathe through my nose and have now gotten a horrible, dry cough - the joys of winter eh? I have also gone completely off my food and have no appetite at all, which I know is definitely not healthy during pregnancy but I just can't stomach anything. I just want to be better, get out and about, prepare the house for Christmas and take some new pictures of my boy. Fingers firmly crossed for a week of no ill health soon!

This week...

Baby is the size of a - pear, according to my pregnancy app.

I'm looking forward to - finding out the gender! It's actually all I can think about at the moment. Is it a boy or a girl?!

My favourite moment was - seeing Jacek graduate with his Bachelors Degree in Irish Law. I was so proud of him and I may have teared up a little watching him line up to accept his degree off his college's president.

I've been feeling - so ill! Stupid flu, please go away and let me breathe normally again!

I've been buying for baby - nothing so far, I'm so sorry baby! But I have gone through some of Tyler Lee's old things to see what we already have. I have an adorable Guess How Much I Love You comforter put away for the baby and all the little cardigans my Nan knit safely in a vacuum bag, ready to pop in the wardrobe when the nursery is put together.
I'm missing - feeling normal and actually being able to have a day without feeling ill, weak and generally under the weather.

I'm craving - nothing, thanks to the sickness my appetite has gone altogether.

I'm loving - all the rest I've been able to get. I don't think I've spent so much time sitting in bed watching TV shows online since I was last pregnant!
I've been meaning to - begin painting the house. The box room, which is going to be the nursery, desperately needs a new lick of paint. I want everything fresh and clean before baby arrives.

I can't wait for - the gender scan! It's all that has been on my mind. I knew from the beginning that Tyler Lee was a boy but with this baby I'm uncertain.
