Pregnancy Update Week 20…
We enjoyed a wonderful holiday in Spain for my 20 week anniversary! The sun was glorious & temperatures soared to over 30 degrees each day. However lovely this sounded on paper, sadly my swollen feet, legs & ankles didn’t agree & I struggled to really walk anywhere. I never experienced any swelling during my last pregnancy so this symptom was a new one!
How big is the baby? The size of a small banana
Total weight gain / loss? +4 lb (plus more when on holiday I’m sure!)
Maternity clothes? Jeans are at their absolute stretching limit! Holiday clothes were interesting – I lived in loose trousers & tops to the point where no-one could actually tell I was pregnant!
Sleep? Much better! Sleeping through again (apart from the toilet breaks…) – this could be to do with the heat & being shattered from the holiday’s activities!
Best moment this week? Enjoying & making the most out of our last holiday as a family of 3!
Symptoms? Swollen feet, legs & ankles. I don’t cope with heat when I’m not pregnant, let alone when I am…
Food cravings? Salad – think this was due to the heat!
Food aversions? Still not liking the thought of pizza…
Stretch marks? No!
What I miss? Back to the alcohol again … being on holiday & not being able to have a drink with an evening meal was hard work!
What I’m looking forward to? Having a drink on holiday!
Bump? Big, but can still be covered by tent clothes 😀
