14 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2

Sunday, 8 February 2015

It's crazy that this is my first proper update and I'm already 14 weeks, where has the time gone?! I'm officially in the second trimester now, and definitely feel much more myself again now. Baby is the size of a peach, although my bump has definitely 'popped' and isn't just bloat. I wake up looking like this now and it just grows throughout the day haha.

This week we got to see our little pip for the second time and find out all was okay, and everything was progressing as it should. I got my results back from the nuchal tests and got a negative results of 1 in 50,000, so we're very happy. Another exciting thing was booking our early gender scan for the 25th Feb, when I'll be 16+4 weeks. With so many people guessing boy we're so excited to find out!

Overall I've felt a lot better this week. My energy is definitely returning and I'm not constantly exhausted... just the normal tired you would expect for a working mummy with a crazy 14 month old haha. The back ache has started however which is horrible. Luckily Jack's on hand to give as many back rubs as I demand haha.

Finally I've been having my first proper cravings these past few weeks. They're complete opposites too: haribo sweets and raw carrots! obviously not together, but just writing about them is making me hungry now.

That's about all for this week! I'll be back next week for my 15 week update. Make sure to check out my YouTube Channel for my 14 week pregnancy video too!

  2. Glad you're feeling better, must be so tiring with a toddler! Eeek an early gender scan is so exciting, I had one with Eliot. When/if baby 2 happens I may not find out just to have that other experience! X

  7. Glad everything went well with your nuchal scan and hope all goes well with your next scan too. The first trimester is so hard with a toddler - I remember that exhaustion very well, glad it is easing for you :-)
