12 Weeks Pregnant Update
Friday, 15 January 2016
I have been super excited to write my first ever pregnancy update on my blog! I have written a few posts before this about how I found out I was pregnant, how my girls reacted and much more. But this is post I have been really excited about. I am finally starting my pregnancy journey through my blog and I can not wait to share it with you all. I felt it was only right to start at 12 weeks as felt I was a little to early before. I am due for a second scan which was supposed to be 12 weeks but because they are so busy I have to wait until January 18th, which by then I will be 13 weeks plus 1 day. A post about my scan will be up during next week. Writing this post I am 12 weeks 4 days pregnant (14th January) and I thought I would do my weekly pregnancy updates every Friday. Hope you all enjoy!
Mia is still a little unsure when I talk about Baby but she does ask a lot about Baby so I am sure she will slowly get her head around the idea one day (she has to!). Elliw on the other hand talks about Baby every single day. Every single mean time and most mornings too. She asks the funniest questions, and so does Mia sometimes too. They both seem interested in what Baby can do inside me and a little confused to why we have to wait another 6 months for Baby arrive.
Baby is certainly growing now as I can feel my Bump getting harder and harder each day. In the evenings I feel so bloated and Bump looks huge but I love it! I am bigger (weight wise) this time round so you can't see Bump properly unless I breathe in or lie down. But I can not hide it when I am bloated. I was showing pretty big from 10 weeks in my second pregnancy with Elliw. I can see my Bump getting very big this time round.
How are you feeling? I'm not feeling too bad. I have some days where I feel very tired and struggle to get out of bed but most days I am fine. Another reason I struggle to get out of bed is because I feel quite ill but not for long and nothing like how I was early on. I am feeling more and more excited each day and watching my Bump grow.
Any sign of Obstetric Cholestasis? Yes. Only feels like it's in its very early stages - but it is there. I can totally cope with it now so I am not complaining.
Have you felt Baby move? As mad as this sounds. Yes I have. At first I thought 'no it can't be' but I know what Baby movements feel like and it was definitely that. I haven't really told much people because they probably wouldn't believe me. I felt first movements with Mia at 17 weeks and with Elliw at 13 weeks, so I do think it is possible.
Any Symptoms? Some tiredness and sore breasts but nothing big. My hormones have been a bit all over the place and I have become more emotional but not really bad. Some foods still turn my stomach.
Any Cravings? I wouldn't say yes but I have had a huge interest in Hot Chocolate recently. Luckily it's the Highlights hot chocolate so it's not a fatty one.
