This week I hit seventeen weeks pregnant, this pregnancy is flying by, I guess being busy looking after the boys is making it go quickly and with a busy few months planned I think I will blink and be nearing the end.
Baby is the size of a turnip this week and growing fast. After a couple of weeks of feeling full of cold and an awful cough that made me sick I am starting to feel better again. My nails are great at the moment, really strong and though I am tired, making sure I get to bed for a decent time really does help. I have been a bit irritable and tearful this week, pesky hormones! I am really trying to enjoy this pregnancy as it will be my last, and I am also so grateful that i have had an easy time of it so far.
Baby is very wriggly most days now especially when I lay down in bed at night or first thing in the morning, I can feel the movements getting stronger and I am looking forward to the first proper kicks and for Phil to be able to feel it too.
We went through all our newborn and 0-3 month bits this weekend to see how much we already had. We have more than enough saved to see us through those first few months so any bits I buy will be extra which is sad but also nice, I will probably get a new pack of white vests and sleep suits to pop into my hospital bag incase I am stuck in for a few days.
