14 Weeks Pregnant {Baby Number Three}

Tuesday, 18 July 2017

As slowly as those first weeks went, I actually cannot believe I'm 14 weeks pregnant and into the second trimester. I fear this pregnancy is going to over before I know it! Although it's exciting as it means we get to meet our beautiful baby. It's sad, as I know this is going to be my last pregnancy (I really mean it this time!), so I want to savour every last second.

I wasn't sure how I was going to do these updates, as I know I'm quite prone to waffling on. But after reading Life With Mrs Lee's pregnancy updates, I've decided to steal her little questionnaire - hope that's okay Harriet?

So here goes...

HOW FAR ALONG?
14 weeks & 2 days

DUE DATE?
14th January 2018

GENDER?
This has been a question we've been asked a lot since we announced! I honestly think I'm growing another bouncing baby boy, but I guess time will tell. We have an early gender scan booked for a few weeks time which we cannot wait for!

HOW’S BABY DOING?
I use the Baby Centre App to check on baby's progress - he or she is now the size of a lemon at around 8.7cm (from crown to rump) and weighs around 1.5oz. Baby's body and limbs are now growing faster than the head - so by the end of the week they'll be all in proportion!

WEIGHT CHANGE?
I started this pregnancy at the most I've ever weighed, so honestly I don't really feel like tracking my weight. After having such a large bump from early on, it does finally seem to have gone down. I'm excited to watch it grow though!

SYMPTOMS?
I feel so thankful that my symptoms seem to be going away *touches wood* so I'm feeling pretty good. The headaches have eased and I'm no longer constipated, yay! I am completely exhausted though and feel as if I could eat a horse.. but I'll take that over nausea and headaches any day.

SLEEP?
I'm sleeping generally well now the nights aren't so warm, but it's becoming more uncomfortable as each day passes. I'm a stomach sleeper and I'm pretty sure those days are numbered... ah! I'm also waking most nights for a wee, which is rather frustrating.

CRAVINGS?
Nothing specific, I'm just preferring carbs and salty food lately. Still not feeling chicken either... eurgh!

HOW I’M FEELING?
Overall I feel pretty good. Buying the first few bits for baby has made it all sink in a bit more, and I'm so excited!

MISS ANYTHING?
My clothes. Nothing fits already!

FAVOURITE RECENT OUTFIT?
I am loving my new maternity jeans from New Look. They were a little pricey, but my goodness are they comfy. Over the bump is the thing of dreaams.

BEST MOMENT THIS FORTNIGHT?
Announcing our news! I'm still on an absolute baby high.

LOOKING FORWARD TO?
My 16 week appointment and early gender scan. Any pink or blue guesses?


Here's my 14 week update with Parker. I love having these to compare!

  1. Do you want a boy or a girl or you don't really care what gender you're having as you've got both now? I'm so excited about this gender reveal x
