15 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2

Sunday, 15 February 2015

Weeks are going a lot faster now our secrets out and we're not anxiously waiting for our scan. For some reason 15 weeks just seems to much further along than the weeks before haha!

Apparently this week baby is the size of a naval orange (how that's different from a different orange I have no idea haha, but let's go with it), and is about 4inches long. Apparently you can start to feel movement this week but I've not felt anything yet. I didn't with Indiana until 20 weeks, and I've got an anterior placenta this time, so I'm not expecting much any time soon!

This weeks been pretty normal, with not much really to update on. That was until Friday when I got my first real pregnancy problem. I was at work during my morning meeting when I started to get really hot, my head was pounding and I felt so sick. I turned around to go to sit down when my vision went. I knew if I hadn't have sat down as quick as I did I would have ended up on the floor! After drinking water and having a sit down I felt much better but I know this is definitely something to keep an eye on.

I had similar with my pregnancy with Indiana and suspect low blood sugar or blood pressure. I'm seeing my Midwife next week so I'll mention it to her then, but for now I feel much better! I'm just making sure I'm eating and drinking little but often.

  1. I got the light headedness with Amelia but not until the end. We were in b&q and it was soooo hot in there still remember that feeling now. Hope you don't get it too much. Eek I can't believe you kept it a secret for so long, that bump! Xx

  2. I had similar when I was first into my second trimester, I felt faint whenever I stood up for too long. It was a blood pressure and circulation problem for me but it does pass :) xx

  4. Oh no! I was told by my doctor that second trimester causes a drop in blood pressure so you have to be aware and more careful of not getting too hot/dehydrated!

    Hope it doesn't happen again!

  6. Sorry to hear about the dizzy spell, I faintedfor the first time ever when I was pregnant with Monkey, in a shop, and I took out a whole display of chocolates, oops! Glad you were ok with a sit down and it is amazing how quickly things go once you are past that 12 weeks mark, especially with your 2nd. Thanks for linking with #MaternityMondays
