Week 18 – Day 4

Let’s do a little summary bulletin:

  • I put on weight! Finally! One whole kilo
  • I’m meeting a fellow pregnant person for a coffee next week. Mixed feelings about this, but keeping an open mind
  • Still not feeling any movement in there
  • Still undecided about finding out the gender, but got two weeks to make up my mind
  • Lower back pain plus tailbone(!) ache is becoming more prominent
  • My gag reflex is super sensitive… like brushing my teeth and having the toothbrush too far in my mouth makes me want to throw up

Week 17 – Day 1

What a blip of a day. I’ve felt so off, deflated, weak and down. It’s so nice and sunny outside and all I’ve done is move from the bed to the sofa and had a couple of cries. It must be a hormonal thing, cause I can’t explain it in any other way…

According to all the info out there this week is supposedly the most common week to start feeling the baby moving around. I’m not sure what to expect at all, and I can’t imagine what it would feel like, but I’m assuming I’ll know when it happens.

Uhrg… I just want this day to end and hope that tomorrow is better :/
