Mood: This week has been hard emotionally again, I thought that the sickness was fading a little but apparently it isn't. It really bothers me that its effecting me so much, but there isn't much that I can do about it. I have tried getting out more, as I always feel better once I get outside, Emily is also so much calmer after I let her get out and run about. The only problem is I'm filled with anxiety when I venture out, as I'm worried about being sick all the time.
Symptoms: Apart from the sickness - which I seem to be getting used to, and I have kind of accepted the fact that it isn't going anywhere soon. I have had lots of stretching and cramps, which is becoming really uncomfortable. Baby E really scared me this week too, She was laying pretty high and under my ribs. I had so much pain in my ribs and my back. It was so sore and I have never felt that when I was pregnant with Emily, so it worried me a lot. I tried everything to get her to move. I couldn't sit, stand, or lay, there was no possible way for me to get comfortable. I tried everything to get comfortable but I just couldn't. In the end it actually was me being sick that made her move. I also need to wee every five seconds.
Sleep: Sleep is still up and down, I have nights when I manage to get quite a bit of sleep, and then nights when I can't sleep at all. I'm also being sick lots during the night, which is keeping me up.
Movement: She is definitely getting bigger and her movements are beginning to change from kicks, to small fidgets. She seems to move lots at night, but not so much during the day.
Food Cravings: Cream eggs. I am constantly craving cold cream eggs straight from the fridge, and somehow my pregnant brain thinks they taste nice, although I really don't like them!
Highlight of the week: Shopping, I have been picking up a few bits here and there for baby E. Next have some beautiful things in at the moment, Emily adores bunnies, so as soon as she see's baby clothing with bunnies on, she demands we get it for baby sissy. Who am I to argue, they are so so cute. It really is funny, you forget how little they are when they are born. I also got purchased myself a MAMA jumper, and it is so comfortable, I love how slouchy, and comfortable it is.
Looking forward to: Getting this baby out! I can't wait to meet her, I know it must sound so bizarre but I hate being pregnant. I really am not a good pregnant person.
Baby Development: 23 weeks: Her hearing is more acute now, so your baby can hear your voice when you talk to her.
