I am now 20 weeks pregnant, well into the second trimester and I couldn’t be happier! I am still feeling nauseous but I’m in better spirits. I am able to enjoy my food a little better and my water intake has very much improved. My bump has grown so much, very much visible already compared to my previous pregnancies but hey, this is my third pregnancy so it’s expected right?…
I had my routine midwife appointment and had to do some blood tests which came back showing that my iron levels are low and so I have been given iron tablets to take. This is nothing new to me as with both my previous pregnancies my iron levels were low too. The tablets have been making me sick (seriously, will I ever enjoy this pregnancy?) I am just glad that everything else is fine with the baby, growing & moving well.
Going to work is proving to be more difficult than I imagined, I just want to quit! I am not able to concentrate properly and I’m actually taking naps on my lunch break just to reboot my system. Everything around me seems to irritate me lately, my hormones are all over the place and people are telling me I must be having a girl that is why I am like this hmm… my anomaly scan, better known as the “20 weeks scan” is soon approaching where we have the option to find out the gender/sex of the baby so we’ll see.
We have 2 boys already so it would be lovely to have a girl! I have been reading some ‘old wives tales’ to predict the gender/sex of the baby so I decided to film a video for my Youtube channel to predict whether we’re going to have a girl or boy before we go to the scan. I had so much fun filming this video, I don’t know why, but I just felt more connected with my growing bump! 🙂
