Bump Update- Week 20

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Look how big I am! Argh! My belly button is going to pop any day now, and I'm not even 6 months yet!

Everything about this pregnancy seems to be happening a lot faster. The whole thing seems to be a lot bigger and more intense too. Baby is already kicking and punching and using my bladder as a trampoline (particularly between the hours of 1am and 4am). I feel bigger and just more pregnant than I did the first time round. Also... we are in April and I'm due in August and that just feels right around the corner!

Keep going through all the things I need to get done before baby arrives. When I was pregnant with Alice, this list consisted of things like: Read the last Harry Potter book, learn to make spaghetti bolognaise, find pretty bedding for the cot... etc. This time round it's more: finish potty training Alice, move her to a toddler bed so we have a cot, sort out storage for new stuff, buy a double buggy (so many choices!!)... Basically it all seems a lot more serious this time round. And less... you know, picking out pretty nursery things.

Anyways. In terms of the actual pregnancy, I'm feeling pretty good. I don't feel too sick anymore so I can eat a healthy diet, which is definitely giving me and baby more energy. I'm drinking lots of water too which has definitely helped. My hair is thicker, my skin is clear and I kind of feel... dare I say it, like I am enjoying being pregnant. I say it like that because I know as time goes on I will be begging for my due date to come so I can go back to not being pregnant again!


  1. You look amazing!! My belly button has been an outy for so long this time. Is Alice understanding there's a little one in there? X
