Pregnancy Diary Week 19

Pregnancy Diary Week 19

I’m writing this whilst sat in the confines of our local soft play. It’s freezing so I might have to get a cuppa to warm my hands on.

Pregnancy Diary Week 19

My belly has really popped out this last couple of weeks. I should measure it to track my growth. It’s definitely taken on a roundness which still looks like I’m a bit chubby in certain clothes.

I haven’t been sick for four whole days which feels amazing. I still gets bouts of feeling sick but I can cope with that.

Uh oh I spoke too soon!

urgh the sickness has kicked in again as my nose seems to have upped its smell sensors. Yuk!

Spots! I have two lovely volcanic style face eruptions on my chin, you know the kind that concealer won’t stick to.

My hair is also coming out a lot more than usual. I’m not too fussed with this at the moment because I have such thick hair. So long as I don’t develop a bald spot.

I need to start thinking about getting some new clothes now. I really want a pair of skinny jeans with the over the bump bit, but I want to be able to try them on. Nowhere seems to actually stock a decent or even nice range of maternity wear on the high street.

I’m fine for the moment as I tend to wear skirts/dresses and tights most of the time at work and these are stretching with me.

20 Week Scan…..

On Monday! I was excited for the scan anyway, but even more so now that Isabelle is coming along.

I phoned ahead to see if this was a possibility as I know that siblings aren’t really supposed to attend scans, but as she’s older at seven they were more than happy for her to attend.

She’s very excited about this, but is going to be on the look out for a willy just in case it might be a dreaded boy.

We have talked about the possibility that the baby might well be a boy, and that she will totally love it if it is.

We stupidly watched Boss Baby where a little boy gets a baby brother and the Mum and Dad don’t have any time for him anymore as they’re just looking after the baby all of the time. This worried her a bit and she had lots of questions:

  • Are we going to be able to play games with her?
  • Will we love the baby more than her?
  • Will we read to her at bed time anymore?

I think we’ve managed to reassure her that we will still do lots of things with her, just with the baby there as well.

We’re going to involve Isabelle as much as possible so that hopefully she will be absolutely fine with sharing her Mummy and Daddy. Coming to the scan I think will help with this as she’s totally impatient to meet her baby brother or sister as it’s taking ‘AGES’.

Have a great week.

  1. Oh my nose did that upped the sense of smell and won’t stop yet and it kills me sometimes smelling everything so so strongly. So lovely the 20 week scan isn’t it? I took both of my two with me and it was such an experience sharing it with them. Thank you ever so much for joining in Bumps and Babies hope to see you again Thursday! 🙂 #bumpsbabies

  2. I’m 19 weeks too and have my 20 week scan on Monday – how exciting! I hope all goes well. I have a son and a daughter. One of which wants a girl and the other a boy so one is going to be disappointed. I shall look forward to hearing the news #bumpsandbabies

  3. Ooh tricky. Mine are exactly the same, one wants a brother the other a sister. I have to have a repeat scan as they couldn’t get all of the measurements 🙂

  4. I’m loving the bumps and Babies Linky. It’s lovely to connect with mums that are at similar stages x

  5. I too was worried when my little was born that my parents would have time for me anymore but it was unfounded. Good luck with your pregnancy, boy or girl

  6. Bless your daughter. Mine was ten when our son was born – and she has been the most helpful big sister ever. She loved the fact that it was a boy and was able to come to one of the scans too. I bet your little girl is so excited. I hope the sickness doesn’t take over too much x #bumpsandbabies

  7. How lovely to keep a diary of your growing bump. It’s something I really wish I’d done. Aw bless your little girl. Fingers crossed the sickness eases again

  8. I think it’s so good that you’re involving your daughter in the progress, I’m sure she’ll get on with and love any sibling she gets x

  9. Oh no I;m sorry the sickness has kicked in again! I was very lucky to escape being sick, although I did feel nauseous with all five!
