24 Weeks Pregnant [Baby Number 2]


Due Date: June 28th, 2017

Mood: My moods are up and down, sometimes I feel absolutely fine, other times I feel like a complete wreck. Luckily I don't seem to be suffering with antenatal depression like I did with Emily, and I'm putting that down to the fact I have Emily this time around, I can concentrate on her when things feel a little tough.


Symptoms: The sickness is still there, causing me lots of discomfort and making me miserable. While I am trying to stay upbeat, its easier said than done. Especially when you can't eat any of your favourite foods.

Sleep: Sleep is something I feel like I really haven't been getting lately. I'm not sure why but Emily seems to be really unsettled recently, and waking lots during the night, that in turn is having a knock on effect on me as she is crying out for me lots during the night, and I end up getting up to reassure her that it is all ok. When I do finally get the chance to go to sleep I can't get comfortable enough to fall asleep. I'm also having really weird, vivid dreams. Something I don't remember having during my pregnancy with Emily.

Movement: Last week I mentioned that Baby E's kicks seemed to be changing to small fidgets, which is completely normal as she grows, but I think I may have spoke to soon. All of a sudden her kicks seem to be pretty big, and she is constantly moving a kicking. When I was pregnant with Emily, we used to joke that she would be a footballer or a dancer, as she was constantly kicking and moving - looks like her little sister is following in her footsteps.

Food Cravings: Food is still something that is hit and miss at the moment. While I find the idea of eating something really tempting, by the time I have actually made it, I don't want it anymore, or the smell of it makes me feel so sick that I end up just leaving it. 

Gender: It's a GIRL!

Highlight of the week: A lovely lady who works with Sam made a adorable blanket for the baby, its pink, grey and cream and matches perfectly with the colour scheme of the girls rooms. I can't wait to use it when Baby E is born. It was such a thoughtful thing for her to do, especially since I have never met her.

Looking forward to: I'm feeling really nervous about the birth, I just want to hold my baby now, and for it to be over. I really dislike being pregnant, it clearly doesn't agree with me. 

Baby Development: 24 weeks: Your baby is excising her breathing by inhaling amniotic fluid into her lungs.
