18 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2
Sunday, 8 March 2015
This week has been a rough one if I'm honest; pregnancy the second time around is definitely a whole lot harder! I'm still waiting for the 'glow' to arrive. Although I've been blessed with red, dry skin and dull awful hair instead... lucky me!
Sleeping has been pretty rough too. I'm finding it so hard to get comfortable and even when I do I'm tossing and turning constantly. I really need to get myself a pregnancy pillow but just keep forgetting to do it.
My back has been bloody awful this week too, as have my hips. If I stand for too long at work they really begin to ache and I have to sit down. I managed to make it until 30ish week last time before I had to sit down more, so this is definitely unexpected. On Thursday I carried Indiana way too much and too far and my back is paying me back for it now. On Friday just sitting up or moving left me in SO much pain. I'm off to town today to invest in a bump support band to see if that helps at all.
