16 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2

Sunday, 22 February 2015

WOW! 16 Weeks! In just 3 days we'll know whether little pip is a brother or sister for Indiana, and I'll also (fingers crossed) get to hear the heartbeat at my 16 week midwife appointment! Time is whizzing by, and in a month I'll be half way already! Pip is the size of an Avacado and is about 4-5 inches long.

This week has been pretty normal, I've felt good and a lot of the time if I didn't look down I wouldn't even think I was pregnant haha. The only thing that's starting to change is my sleeping. I'm a full on tummy sleeper and with this growing bump it's becoming a bit of a challenge! I'm finding it hard to get comfy in bed in general and definitely think I need to invest in a pregnancy pillow at some point soon.

I've had a few vivid dreams this week too, none of which were very pleasant! Although I do remember one quite distinctly showing me I was having a boy. Who knows, but I have heard a lot of people who've dreamt one gender and had the other haha.

I'm wearing my very first piece of maternity clothing today! Only a simple vest top but it's a start haha. My tops are starting to ride up a bit too much so I think these will become a staple soon enough. My work trousers are definitely too tight as well, and I must invest in some maternity tights too!

We visited the Baby Show yesterday and saw some fab brands! The guys at Medela were extremely helpful and informative. We're considering breast feeding this time, and as Indie was bottle fed from the start we're complete novices (any advice is very welcome haha)! We've also definitely set in stone getting the iCandy Peach 3 Blossom as our double after giving it a spin too!

That's it for this week! I'll definitely be updating in the week with our gender reveal so keep an eye out! If not I'll be back next week for my 17 week update.

  4. With Isla I dreamt I was having a girl and was right, this time I dreamt about a boy and now I'm having a boy so you can be right ;) I can't wait to find out the gender! Eeek :D I am planning on giving breast feeding a good go this time, even if its for the first 2 weeks. I tried with Isla and then pumped for the first week before switching to formula, id be happy to do the same again at least but hopefully maybe more :) xxx

  12. How exciting! I absolutely loved being pregnant! I breastfed my twins for the first 3 months and the best thing I found was a decent cushion!! It makes life so much simpler! I had the EZ-2-Nurse cushion — I think the Harmony Duo is the same. They're designed for twins but my friend borrowed mine recently, to feed her single baby, and said how much easier it made things! They're more like a soft shelf than a cushion and really comfy!! I can't recommend them enough! x #MaternityMondays

  14. I breastfed lando until 13 months and almost 3 months into feeding Mikael.
    I think it will be a shock to you if you do breastfeed as all my friends and family formula feed there babies and when they are around me they are shocked at how often and for how long they feed.
    Mikael still feeds every 2-3 hours for about 20-45 mins!!
    I also feel with breast feeding it's harder to leave them, we couldn't leave Lando until he was 7 months old as wouldn't take a bottle (even then it was only for an hour or 2) and haven't left mikael yet.
    Not trying to put you off just thought I'd be real so you aren't too shocked if you do give breastfeeding ago 😊

  15. I can't believe your 16 weeks already! Seems like just yesterday you announced that you're pregnant! 3 days until you find out? Does that mean you find out today!? I'm excited for you finding out :) I had no idea about breastfeeding either the only advice I have is follow your instincts :) xxx
