13 Weeks Pregnancy Update


I have to admit, the past week has flown by! I do sit down sometimes and think that this pregnancy is going really slow. But then I think how far I am and how far gone I was when I found out and it has actually gone pretty quick. I can thank the morning school runs for that I think, school hours just fly by. This week has been a little different to my last week. Not a huge difference though. By the way, I did breathe my stomach in my photos, so you could all see Bump better! Couldn't breathe in anymore ha ha.

Last week I decided to go back to my local Slimming World group and restart my weight loss journey whilst pregnant. I thought I could try and lower my BMI and make this pregnancy a healthy one. Not eating junk all the time like I did with my other two. I have been put high risk pregnancy and I wrote a post on how I felt being high risk. I do feel disappointed in myself. I knew I am a high risk pregnancy near the end due to Obstetric Cholestasis, a liver disorder I get whilst pregnant but luckily the full burst of it hasn't started yet and only get the itch now and then which I can cope with for now.

On a plus side, I had my second scan on Monday the 18th. They have now put my Due date forward one day so I am now officially due on 25th July 2016. I will more than likely be induced before then but I am crossing everything that I can hopefully go myself this time, without being induced. We will see! I also had my midwife appointment 2 days after on the Wednesday and got to hear Baby's heartbeat. Baby was pretty low but heartbeat was strong, clear and pretty fast!



How are you feeling this week? My hormones have been all over the place this week. I've burst into tears over the smallest and silliest things ever! It's pretty funny looking back but I have also been pretty stressed with personal reasons and worries about my weight and high risk pregnancy. All kinds have been going through my head but I will be fine soon! I have been getting out of breathe a lot recently but I know the reason for it, I think! I've not had much energy recently either, I feel so lazy all the time.

Have you felt Baby move? Yes! I have felt Baby move a couple of times this week.

Any signs of Obstetric Cholestasis yet? Yep. But only small. I can cope.

Any cravings? Not really got any but I have been wanting Cheetos puffs and hot chocolate badly!

  1. Congratulations on your pregnancy. I had to google Obstetric Cholestasis as it is a term I've never come across before, it sounds incredibly uncomfortable and I hope you don't suffer too badly this time.

  42. Aww what a cute little bump. they have changed the guidelines so much on bmi in pregnancy now. I was almost put on it for being a low BMI which is crazy as my first baby I weighed even less and it wasn't even mentioned. Thanks for linking to #PickNMix

  43. How sweet! Baby on the way!
    I hope everything goes smoothly!
    With my daughter I got preeclampsia and I swelled so badly it was hard to tell I was even pregnant. I just looked huge! I think in total I gained 105 lb or so with her. It took over a year to lose all that weight.
    Good luck and You can do it!!

  44. Although being high risk is obviously pretty scary for you, just think of it in terms of how much more monitored your pregnancy will be. There should hopefully be a bit of reassurance in that, I really hope it all goes well for you hon.
