20 Week Bump Update- We're halfway there!!!



-I am now just over 20 weeks pregnant and my little bean is now roughly the size of a banana!

- We had our scan last week and know what gender the baby is. Some family members don't want to know though so we have to keep it a secret. This is most annoying, especially as I am suffering from a severe case of baby brain and will no doubt forget and slip up!

- I can still fit in to most of my pre pregnancy clothes although they are starting to get uncomfortable so time for the dreaded maternity shop ( Thank god for Isabella Oliver!)

- This little baby is very active, I have been feeling movement from as early as 10 weeks and it is getting stronger by the day. Mr Jones felt a kick for the first time, it was so great to see the smile on his face.

- My hair is super thick and growing rapidly as are my nails. In the first trimester my hair went very very dry but now that I have had 2 inches cut off the ends, it is in far better condition. It is also much curlier and frizzier than before, which I didn't think was even possible.

- My skin is very very dry, especially on my face, hands and feet. So far, I have avoided the unpleasant adult acne that I suffered with when pregnant with E. I'm still worried that it could rear it's ugly head anytime soon!

- The morning sickness is still hanging around, I have remember to keep taking my medication to keep it at bay. So far I have been able to control the heartburn by eating smaller portions and avoiding spicy foods and fizzy drinks which is great because Rennie and Gaviscon makes me sick right now.

  2. Aww how exciting!! Only feels like 5 minutes ago I was posting my 20 week update!!! (it was 15 weeks ago, eeek!)

    I kept the gender secret because family members didn't want to know, but in the end it got TOO stressful trying to remember not to say "he" at all so I gave up at about 30 weeks and announced it lol!

    I feel your pain with the hair and the morning sickness - I had AWFUL morning sickness until around 25 weeks :( And the Dr wouldnt even give me any meds for it!

    1. Oooh not long to go for you then! Somehow we managed to keep it a secret first time around so the pressure is on to manage it again this time!
      So rubbish that you felt sick until 25 weeks! shocked the dr wouldn't give you anything for it, I couldn't keep down and couldn't manage otherwise
      Good luck for the first few weeks
