Gosh, that’s it, the first trimester done.
I can’t believe we have made it to the second trimester. Those first 10 weeks absolutely dragged and the past 4 have flown.
Grass Seed is now the size of a peach apparently. Anyone else find that hard to imagine seeing as they aren’t the shape of said examples. I find it really hard to comprehend but it’s nice to know they are getting bigger. And my tummy is definitely slowly getting bigger too. This has been the week when I’ve really had to think about investing in some maternity clothes.
Week 14 has been a good one, I’m definitely starting to feel more human again and the bouts of morning sickness have eased off which I’m so thankful for. I’m still getting really, really bad headaches though this week, I get at least two a day which is absolutely no fun at all.
I’m also already really uncomfortable. My hips are absolutely killing me, and I can’t even walk at the same pace I used to walk at before which is also no fun. I’m also very aware of my uterus. I’m so uncomfortable most of the time and I’m not sure if it’s a second baby thing or if it’s because I’m physically a lot fitter this pregnancy, which I wasn’t with Luca. So all my stomach muscles are really feeling the stretch and change that’s going on. Because of that, I’ve decided I’m going to lay off the abdominal stuff for a bit in my PT sessions and see if it makes any difference.
Grass seed keeps doing those weird, trying to escape from my stomach, things and it’s happening more regularly as well now. But when it’s not poking out in a big lump I can’t feel baby at all. It’s very strange. I’m going to mention it to my midwife when I see her next week.
I’ve also weirdly started to want to sleep on my right-hand side. I usually sleep on my stomach or left-hand side but not anymore. Apparently, it’s a sign that Grass Seed might be a girl, but I’m not sure I believe in any of the old wives tales about predicting gender. They are fun to look at though and this little prediction makes Luca and Ant very happy as they both desperately want a girl.
