23 Week Pregnancy Update


How far along:
24 weeks.

Days until due date:
112 days.

My bump:
Getting bigger every day and starting to feel pretty heavy.

Weight changes:
8st 7 (+12lbs total).

Stretch marks?
Nope, not yet still putting on Palmers Cocoa Butter every night before bed over my belly, boobs, hips & back.

Probably just quavers this week.

I have been sleeping loads this, week. Today I had a mammoth 13 hours sleep and never woke up once in the night, It was lovely.

Headaches are coming in full force this week, every time I have a really good long sleep I wake up with a crappy head. The days were I wake up with a headache are the ones that I end up being sick in the morning, but it isn’t an everyday thing so I can live with that.

I have a lot of back pain after doing simple things like hoovering or folding the washing and putting it away. After I do that lying down on my right side, back and left side proper kills.

My belly has been feeling a lot heavier this week so when I go into town and I am walking for a long period of time without sitting down it feels like my baby boy is going to fall through my belly, it is very strange.
Best moment this week:
Going out for dinner at our friends, it was really nice being fed until we could burst while watching the x-factor (even though I HATE it) in front of the fire.


Worst moment this week:
Can’t really think of anything this week.

Miss anything?
Going shopping for clothes, there are no shops in my town that sell maternity clothes.

Maternity clothes:
Searching the internet for the perfect pair of black maternity jeans.

I can feel him moving around inside my belly now, lots of turning and his kicks are getting a lot stronger.


Belly button in/out:
Still in but it looks like it is on its way out!

Feeling okay this week. I just can’t believe that I am 6 months pregnant! I used to think about that being SO far on. I’m starting to have a little panic about all the things that we haven’t bought yet but hopefully once Christmas is out the way we can get everything sorted.

Looking forward to: 
I was talking about my maternity leave with my boss this week and it is only 2 months away!!
See you next week x
