How far along? Week 19
Total weight gain: hard to know as have been very ill all week and had lost weight on Wednesday, down two pounds but did not do weight in today as didn’t feel up to it. Tomorrow, maybe.
Update Total Weight Gain:13 lbs. down a lb from last week due to sickness, I’d think.
Maternity clothes? Am wearing either maternity jeans or skirts and dresses. Bought a new stripes Breton top from Next, which I love. I must be looking bumpy as one of the kids in my class remarked that I was starting to look a bit pregnant and she is only 6!
Yes though I find it hard to admit! The first popping or quickening started last Saturday night and have had some sort of flickering every day since then, which is lovely.
Best moment this week:
Have been so sick with chest infection and then the flu that the week was hard but best moment was when I went to GP and we heard baby’s heartbeat on Doppler. Nice and strong and constant!
Miss anything? I miss being able to move around. I miss being healthy and can’t wait to get rid of this infection, it’s been over two weeks and everyone tells me to blame the pregnant lady’s rubbish immune system!
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: down and sick.
Looking forward to: next week, I should feel better and ready for the Anomaly scan at 21 weeks! Thursday week.
Food cravings: coffee.
Anything making you queasy or sick? No, nausea has gone but had lung infection which needed antibiotics and have developed heartburn which I hope is linked with lung infection.
Gender: not finding out.
Symptoms: is a weak immune system a symptom? Is flutters of movement symptoms? No other ones but these!
Labour signs: no!!
