18 Weeks Pregnancy Update


There hasn't been much difference this week compared to my last pregnancy update. The only difference this week I have been thinking about things more recently and feeling a lot more emotional than normal. It hasn't been a hard week with anything really. The girls have behaved all week pretty much. I haven't had much energy to tidy or do many things but I try my best.

I have noticed that I haven't been feeling Baby boy move as I did before, I have felt a few nudges but nothing much. So I am really crossing my fingers with the scan. I am putting it down to baby just still being pretty small and me just being busy and not noticing the kicks maybe? But like I said, I have felt a few nudges.


APPOINTMENTS - No appointments this week. I can not wait for my 20 week scan.

WEIGHT LOSS - I missed group on Wednesday. Food wise hasn't been good, yet again. I just can't get my head into it!  

CRAVINGS - Not much cravings this week.

CLOTHING - Still the same as last week. Maternity leggings are the in thing for me now. I have received new jeans and tops from two companies, so they may be on my last for next weeks update!

SYMPTOMS - Very emotional.

OBSTETRIC CHOLESTASIS SIGNS - Still not come fully on.

  5. It is still quite early to feel lots of movement and if your placenta is at the front it may mask it even more. Hope the scan goes well xx

  17. I think leggings are probably more comfortable when you are pregnant anyway so hopefully they help you feel a bit more comfy and at ease x

  24. Lovely photos. Everywhere I look people seem to be announcing they are pregnant/early days pregnant. Think it's because I want another?? :-) #justanotherlinky

  25. Lovely photos. I suffered with obstetric cholestasis when pregnant too. I remember reading in What to Expect When You're Expecting that it was a "rare" complication, but I seem to know loads of people who've had it. Hope all goes well at the 20 week scan. #justanotherlinky

  31. With all those hormonal changes I think it is normal to feel emotional but make sure you take care of yourself and if you are worried speak to your midwife. Take care. Won't be long until the scan x

  32. Exciting times! I'm now looking forward for your post on 20 weeks. Lovely post!

  34. What a beautiful bump :) I'm now 38 weeks pregnant and am not comfortable in anything at all unless it's leggings... I'm afraid it doesn't get any better! Best of luck with your scan - hope everything goes well. I had similar experience of feeling huge movements from 14 weeks (2nd pregnancy) but they stopped sudenly at 16 weeks. It turned out that my placenta had moved and baby was hiding right at the back of my uterus and so the movements were incredibly cushioned. Fingers crossed its a similar situation for you xx

  35. I didn't feel my youngest move anywhere near as much as I did with eldest - I think it was because I was very busy looking after the other one so I didn't notice so much (& baby probably slept because I was moving a lot!) Good luck with 20 week scan. #justanotherlinky

  36. Not long now until your 20 week scan. Hope any worries are put to rest and you manage to find out the gender x x x

  55. Love this update, I love your pictures. I can't believe how big you are for 18 weeks

    ReplyDelete
  56. I remember my both pregnancies too well. Chloe was definitely the hardest one. I have never ever had a baby kick so much than she did. It was mad. Exhaustion was definitely something too but mainly because I had a toddler am running around.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Your bump looks beautiful lovely :) Good luck with the scan, I will say though that if you are worried book to see a doctor or your midwife to set your mind at ease. That's what they're there for and never be afraid of making a fuss if you are worried.
