Week 20 – Not much has really changed in the way of symptoms. I had an appointment with physio and got a tubigrip to wear which baby girl is not keen on she really wiggles and kicks when I have it on but it seems to be helping for just now. Been able to see movement with week and had 20 scan and it went great baby is happy and healthy.

Week 21 – Feeling much the same, pelvic pain is getting bad after lots on standing or walking. I am loving all the movements but she’s not keen to share them with daddy.
Week 22 – No new symptoms this week, apart from waddling like a duck when I walk and finding the heat difficult due to the tubigrip. People have been asking about pregnancy and due date so bump is definitely a bump. NESTING?? Think both MrS and I have been hit as we ordered a new sofa and carpet for the living room and are now in full renovation mode which is all fine and well but MrS won’t even let me pick up the old wallpaper off the floor. So he is doing most of it by himself after work.
Week 17 – This week started out with a busy Monday with the midwife for the usual checks and a consultant appointment to discuss my family medical history and he also put me on Aspirin because of my last baby’s being on the small side. Also the same day we went for our gender scan which like any scan put my mind at ease in the weeks before you can feel defeat movements.
It’s a…….. Girl 💝
Can’t say I was surprised when we found out I had been staying all along “it’s a girl” Mr S and the kids where over the moon. The rest of the week was quite and feeling somewhat normal
Week 18 – Everyone’s is still very excited about baby girl and started talking about names, Daddy even felt her moving. Feeling well apart from if I do to much I have started getting Braxton Hicks and still lower back pain. I have been put on the waiting list for Physio. Emilias 5th Birthday was this week and she spent ever morning counting down the sleeps and was so happy that she got more dressing up for her and her baby sister to play with.
Week 19 – Been feeling really well apart for the braxton hicks (I honestly forgot how uncomfortable they were) The back pain is daily but I got my appointment though for Physio for next Monday due to cancellation as it’s a bank holiday and the schools are off. The rest of the week has been quite and not much to report.
There’s not been much change and will continue to do the three weeks in one for just now.
Week 14 – We spent the weekend in Edinburgh for my brother in laws wedding which was lovely. Starting to feel better still odd waves of nausea also starting to find pain in lower back and tail bone. There is no hiding the bump now.
Week 15 – Feeling much the same apart from I am starting to walk slower and get out of breath.
Week 16 – Nothing new to report all’s well. We booked in for a last minute gender scan on the Sunday for the Monday at 17 weeks.
With valentine’s day just around the corner i thought i would write about how MrS and i met and became a husband and wife.
We had been friends for a couple of years as i met him though his x that was a few year below me in school. We had always got on and had a lot in common ( and secretly i really like him 😉) but never thought he would feel the same and as i was in a relationship nothing would happen anyway.
At the end of 2010 i go be out that my x was having an affair and after all the years on emotional/mental abuse i had had enough and asked him to leave he ashored me it was a mistake and it was over (witch it wasn’t) by early summer 2011 it was the final straw and said if he didn’t leave i would pack up at me and the kids would move away from the area. So he left and i moved on as a single mum of 3 i had such a great network of family and friends we where so happy.
I had been with my x since i was 14 and he was very controlling so i was finally free to be my own person. In this time MrS and his then partner had split.
In october 2011 i went out with a girlfriend to a local pub and in walks MrS with a few mutual friends so we all got chatting and playing games of pool and having a great time. After than for the next few weeks we kept in touch chatting online and the phone and as he worked near my house he would pop along for a coffee at break and lunch. It quickly became apparent the feelings i had for him where still there and as it turned out he had felt the same all that time too.

He was great with the kids he gave them the time of day he would sit and play and chat with them, they never got that from there dad and they loved it. One night after being out we where waking home chatting away and we both just turned to each other and said the three little words “I LOVE YOU” After that this moved fast and on december 10th he got down on one knee and i said “YES” All out family’s where super happy and we set a date for 10th of August 2012.
Planning the wedding was fab everything fell into place like it was ment to be. I woke up on the morning of the wedding with a wee bit of panic because of my dad adding extra guests at the last minute and i wasn’t sure if the venue had been notified, but after that moment past things went great the morning was just like i had imagined. I will always remember this photo being taking that is an old couple in the distance that just happened to be standing there at the time. It almost feels like its was to symbolising us in the future.
As i stood waiting to walk down the aisle i was shaking from pure excitement or from the lack of oxygen getting to my legs after my dad fasting me in to my dress. As i walked towards him with a warm smile on his face i felt safe like know one could ever hurt me again. Our day was magical life was perfect. A few days later we headed of to Lanzarote’s Puerto del Carmen for a week of sun, sea and newlywed bliss. My flip flops & sunglasses
