Due Date: June 28th, 2017
Mood: I'm feeling a little better this week, although I'm still really anxious. I have started to notice that I don't want to go out as I'm scared I will be sick, which is ruining everything. I don't want to become a little hermit because it isn't fair on Emily. I'm hoping that the sickness will start to settle down soon.
Symptoms: I have lots of backache and stomach cramps. The sickness is still the one thing I struggle the most with in this pregnancy.
Sleep: I have been struggling to sleep as I can't get comfy, due to the backache.
Movement: Baby girl has been moving non stop. She has been kicking lots, and her kicks are getting lots stronger as time goes on.
Food Cravings: Still no food cravings, although I absolutely love fruit and vegetables.
Gender: It's a GIRL!
Highlight of the week: Emily has really grown a attachment to her baby 'sissy'. She talks about her non stop and constantly kisses my bump. She has her own copy of the scan picture which was given to her at our gender scan, because she takes it everywhere with her we put it in a frame for her. She usually keeps it on her shelf in her bedroom, but we found her like this, fast asleep cuddling the picture of her baby sister. Honestly, it melted my heart.
Looking forward to: I'm looking forward to our 20 week scan, although it is still a little while away I can't wait to see our little girl again.
Baby Development: Week 18 - The baby is giving her reflexes a good workout, and you may feel a fluttery sensation as she moves around.
