Pregnancy Update Week 19…
The baby brain is in full force this week! Examples include taking much longer than normal to subtract 65 from 69, being laughed at by my husband and then proceeding to tell him “I’m not an nidiot”… Also, waking up one morning & fully believing I was going to be giving birth in 11 weeks time, totally forgetting about weeks 21-29… I really hope it doesn’t get much worse or we could be in trouble…
How far along? 19 +5
Total weight gain / loss? +3 lb
Maternity clothes? Pyjama bottoms are becoming a bit of an issue…may have to start thinking about digging out some maternity ones!
Sleep? Waking up lovely & early still! URGHHHH
Best moment this week? Realising that I actually have 21 weeks before giving birth, not 11 so I still have plenty of time to prepare, both mentally & sorting the house out!!
Symptoms? Poor sleep, quite a lot of round ligament pain on and off.
Food cravings? Curry! We went to a local curry house & I couldn’t get enough. Last pregnancy, curry was a distant dream due to all the sickness, so this was amazing!
Food aversions? I had some Apricot Wheats which I normally love…I then proceeded to feel very sick for ages after so perhaps not a good idea for a while!
Stretch marks? No!
What I miss? Roquefort… I am still eating it, but it has to be cooked first which takes ages in my impatient “I need cheese” mood.
What I’m looking forward to? Good old crumbly & cold Blue cheeses again!
Bump? Measuring in at just over 40 inches!
