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.
Bump mesureing 44″ around the bellybutton
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.
Sunday morning was a blur of kids fighting over the cereal and milk getting ready for a family walk.https://www.visitmoffat.co.uk/things-to-see/grey-mares-tail
My brother-in-law was up from teeside so we instead of laying about doing nothing with our sunday we wrapped up and headed of for a walk up the UKs 5th highest waterfall Grey Mare’s Tail and what a adventure we had the littlest little walked up at least 3/4 of the way before getting a wee bit of help from daddy.
The weather was dry with snow on the hill tops very pictures perfect, as we walked up the mist come in but soon as we walked around the corner at the top the sun came out just like something from a movie it was breathtaking and it might sound typical, but the first word we all said was “WOW”The sun came out at just the right time Breathtaking view
As i stood on the bank of the loch breathing in the fresh air a moment of peace fell over me and for just that minute i felt like the only one on top of that hill. Everything made sense the things that’s been spinning around my head stop and things fell into place. The people in my life that keep letting me down, that’s never there, that don’t take the time to see how we are. Even though we are family doesn’t mean i have to keep them in mine or my children’s life we have plenty of family we can rely on.
So with this new sense of peace we will move forward with our life and plans for the future with no upset and heartache.
As we set off back down the hill MrS have the call of macdonalds so why not! with all that work climbing the hill it couldn’t hurt.
Arrived back home in time for bath, supper and bed that was welcomed by us all no argument. (Best nights sleep for a while) the littlest slept right though to 10am and was ready for bed at tea time on monday. This might just have to be a regular family activity.
To round our sunday up it was a fabulous day enjoyed by us all and i have learned that it’s not just negative thoughts i need to let go of but negative people and once i had done this life felt easier.
As for the waterfall it’s a must see absolutely stunning.
