23 Week Bump Update

Wednesday, April 23, 2014


Still here, still pregnant! I'm over the half way point, though it does seem like I still have a LONG way to go. Especially now we have booked our family holiday for the summer. I haven't started getting ready for baby at all. Alice is still in the cot, I have no baby boy clothes, no double buggy. I haven't even thought about where he's going to sleep for the first few months, or how I'm going to juggle two routines (though kind of hoping that will just... happen!).

In terms of the pregnancy, not much to report. I think I'm at the stage where it's all nice and easy going and I have a lovely sized bump to dress up. Baby has been moving lots, which is always comforting to feel! I feel pretty well, though I do get tired very quickly. And if I stand too long my lower back starts hurting, but those are pretty normal symptoms and not that bad if I'm being honest.

Now I am getting bigger, Alice has a bit more of an understanding that there is a baby growing inside me! She always pulls up my top to give my belly a stroke, or sits yelling, "hello!" at him which is very sweet. I am very impatient at the moment and would love to just... have my baby already! I can't be bothered to give birth again and recover... It's not my favourite thing to do to be honest, I'm not going to lie. Not particularly nervous about it (what's the point, baby has to come out right?), I just wish it would hurry up and get here so I can get on with it!



  1. It's flying by! And you look so radiant. How sweet is little Alice, I bet she will be such a wonderful big sister. I remember all of the pregnancy impatience, but really it does fly by when it's all over. x

  2. It will be worth it with ur reward at the end(hang in there, not long now:)!

    Gorgeous pic of you btw:)
