Well Week 14 has absolutely flown by! I was off on half term so I got lots of naps and chill time in as well as some fun things (& baby shopping!) which was a lovely change.
Dizziness – Unfortunately the dizziness and ‘hypos’ from Week 13 are still sticking around (though the midwives had already warned me they would) that being said I’m getting a lot better at managing them and being off on half term meant it was much easier to snack and take breaks when I needed to.
Sleeping – My sleep pattern has started to get a little messed up, which I’m so not appreciating! I feel tired so head to bed but then I can’t sleep. When I finally do get to sleep I unfortunately keep waking up during the night, not to pee or anything just because my tummy feels weird and I can’t seem to get comfy!
Headaches – A charming new symptom that seems to have started is headaches. I’m not just talking about your average headache, I’m taking absolute ‘head’s going to explode, I don’t know if I can move’ type headaches and they’re really not pleasant! If anyone has any top tips on how to manage them or even make them a little easier then please send them my way! (I’m drinking an insane amount of water so it can’t be dehydration)
Acne – The charming pregnancy acne that I had back in my first trimester is back with a vengeance much to my utter disgust. It’s making me feel so unhappy with my appearance and making me slightly resentful of pregnancy. I just have to keep reminding myself that it’s hormonal and that as soon as Squish is here it’ll all go away and totally be worth it!
Boobs – The final change this week has been my boobs getting even bigger! I can’t imagine how much more giant they’re going to get, they already feel huge! I’ve been using my Boob Tube cream from Mama Mio twice a day everyday in a hope of keeping those stretch marks away!
14 Week Bumpie
Now it’s time for that all exciting bumpie! I feel I’ve grown loads since my last bumpie!
As I mentioned above we did some more baby shopping this week. I was kindly sent a changing bag from Idaho Jones, which I’ll show you a little more about soon and they’ve kindly given me a discount code to get 15% off if you’re looking for a new changing bag! Just pop the code PaleGirl15 in at the check out. We picked up a few more baby grows and body suits (I’ve got a little haul coming next week so prepare for all the cuteness!) We’ve also been scoping out travel systems, I’m headed to Mamas & Papas tomorrow to try and make a final decision!
As always I hope you enjoyed this little update! I have a little treat coming this week that I’ll be taking you along with on insta stories so make sure to check it out on Saturday.
