Pregnancy | 16 weeks

How far along? 
16 weeks.

Size of baby?

This week the baby is approx the size of an avocado.

Any news this week?

Towards the end of last week I started to get some aches and pains that seemed a little more than stretching pains. And I felt very dizzy over the weekend. My doctor checked me over and said although everything seems fine, he felt I was pulling myself when active and may've pulled myself while at work. I have quite an active job, working with young children, moving up and down off the floor all day, and I may've pulled myself. He advised me to get some rest and keep my eye on the dizziness. He put me on the sick for the week. Bit annoying as only having been back at work at week, but I was pretty thankful for the rest as the pains had worried me a bit!
Also, started to feel baby move this week! The most amazing feeling ever!! ;)

ASOS Maternity is becoming my best friend! Bought a few more bits this week; a swim suit, a lace dress for my friends wedding, a daytime dress & a bump band. 

I'm starting to notice all my old stretch marks from my previous pregnancy now my bump is growing. Boooo. 

Still really tired. The dull aches and sharp pains in my tummy. A bit of dizziness.

Sleep has been fine this week. I've been in bed by 8-9pm most nights as so tired!!

Missing anything? 
I'm desperate for glossy hair! It's just so dry and dull right now and no amount of treatments, oils and pampering is helping. I know I've got to let it run its course and hope I get my healthy hair back soon, it's just a pain!!

Yes! :) I've felt a few pops and squirms this week, not every day but a few times this week! :)

Any purchases?:
We took a trip to Mamas & Papas this week and splashed out on some of the main bits! I got the pram I wanted; the gorgeous Quinny Buzz, a Maxi Cosi car seat/carrycot, and a beautiful cot bed and changing table. Glad to have some of the big bits out of the way and very happy with our purchases.

Best moment this week:

Shopping for important bits, was really special and exciting! :)

Worst moment this week: 
The sharp pains I've been getting.

Food cravings:
I've wanted sugar a lot this week, I really didn't want to crave sugar in this pregnancy as I did with Bradley! :(

Anything making you queasy or sick:

Not too much, sometimes when I eat and travel. But nothing too bad nowadays, thankfully.

Belly Button in or out? 



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

Looking forward to:

Our gender scan on Wednesday!! Any guesses? :)

Keep up to date with me & my posts
