Pregnancy | 15 weeks



How far along? 
15 weeks.

Size of baby?

This week the baby is approx the size of a navel orange.

Any news this week?

I had some important blood results back this week, all came back clear which is a big relief. Also received the results of my Downs Syndrome screening, low risk at 1:76000. So all good. Had a midwife appointment this week, found a small amount of ketones in my sample so need to be eating more, and better, which hopefully I can now the nausea and sickness are subsiding. 

Clothes?
Living in my maternity jeans and leggings at the mo, and baggy dresses. Hate the awkward stage where I can't fit into my regular clothes and can't find anything to wear! I'm even getting too big for my onesie! I'm going to have to make another fitting appointment as although I jumped up a bra size by 8/9 weeks and spent a fortune on M&S maternity bras, yet again they're getting too tight and my boobs are spilling over the sides again! They're bloody huge! Always a fave pregnancy perk! ;) 

Stretchmarks? 
I think I got enough last time, give me a break this time yeh?! 
Stretchmarks are one of those things that, no matter how much you try to prevent, at the end of the day it's pretty much down to genes, and I was screwed. I was 19/20 when pregnant with Bradley, really petite and slim, and I was huge during pregnancy, he was 8lb 5oz and my body paid for it, despite applying cream 3 times a day every single day! Lets hope I don't get many more this time round. I'm currently using Cusson's Mum & Me Bump Stretchmark Cream (£9.99) to keep my tummy moisturised. 

Symptoms: 
The sickness and nausea are thankfully subsiding, although I still have bouts of nausea, it's not so bad these days. I'm super tired, pretty much all the time!

Sleep: 
I'm beginning to get uncomfortable at night now, it's not affecting my sleep too much although I often struggle to get back to sleep when I wake up to use the toilet. 

Missing anything? 
Nice skin and hair!!!! Whippy ice cream!!!

Movement: 
Not really. I've felt twinges that could be movement but who knows. I know it can happen a lot quicker in 2nd pregnancies so, maybe!

Any purchases?:
No purchases this week. 

Best moment this week:

Getting important blood results back saying all was okay. Huge relief!! 

Worst moment this week: 
Getting some pains and cramps that I can't work out if are stretching/growing pains or not. 

Food cravings:
No cravings as such, but when I fancy something, I need it, there and then. And I get pretty moody if I can't have it! ;)

Anything making you queasy or sick:

Travelling and tiredness, but I haven't been too bad at all with sickness or nausea thankfully!

Belly Button in or out? 

Ha, still in for a good while yet.

Mood:

Tired. Hormonal at times. But pretty good all round.

Looking forward to:

My skin and hair becoming normal again... pleeeease be soon!!!
