23 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2

Sunday, 12 April 2015

23 weeks means just one more week until our little pip is classed as viable and a person in his own right - yay! This week has been a mixture of good and bad and and I'm currently feeling like absolute rubbish hence why this and my video are up so late! Our little boy is now just over 500g, and the size of a grapefruit at 29cm long!

The week started off pretty special, Sunday was the first day Jack felt our little boy kick. I've been feeling him for weeks and have been watching him from the outside. But he finally got to feel him for himself after what seemed like ages haha.

The start of the week also brought achy boobs, cramping legs and exhaustion which wasn't so fun. I had my first proper leg cramp when I woke up Tuesday morning and almost cried in pain - Id forgotten how painful they are!

I'n currently suffering with the second severe headache this week too. I found it hard to keep my eyes open and function Wednesday, and I'm feeling pretty much the same today. 4Head and paracetamol haven't really done anything so it's lots of rest and drinks to try and help.

The only other strange symptom I've forgot to mention recently is that my leg hair seems to have stopped growing! I've heard other people mention it before but thought it was a bit odd, but it's pretty cool... Especially now the weathers getting warmer so I'll be having my legs out more haha!

Thank you to everyone who's been following my journey so far, I can't believe how quick this pregnancy is going!

  4. My leg hair doesn't usually grow and only have to shave like twice a year...during pregnancy I pretty much looked like a werewolf! Enjoy the non shaving especially when you would usually struggle to reach your legs :-) xxx

  6. I remember the leg cramps! Thankfully I only suffered with them in my first pregnancy. Hope they aren't disturbing your rest too much.

  7. Oh lovely, I know how you feel. I haven't had achy boobs at all yet which is a bit weird, instead I'm getting nosebleeds left, right and centre. How lovely that Jack got to feel him this week, you are absolutely blooming, pregnancy really suits you. Leg cramps are the worst too! Second time round seems much harder x
