Well, what a week this has been! 21 weeks pregnant today and time to write my diary for week 20. First we had the 20 week scan on Tuesday, which was soooo exhausting (how can sitting around in a waiting room be so tiring?!). Then we revealed the gender of our baby in this little video, which I’ve been told is rather cute! I like it, but then I might be just ever such a teensy bit biased!
The baby has been kicking away more this week, which has been reassuring, but I’ve also had some other strange feelings which I suppose it just things stretching, moving position and generally getting squashed in there. On Friday I spent the whole day feeling like I couldn’t stand up straight because I had a stitch-type feeling high on the right side of my bump. Ironically once I realised this and actually stood up straight it felt better! I think I just need to stretch more.
On a related note, I missed yoga on Tuesday, completely by accident. I was gutted when I realised and felt so guilty that I’d missed it. I hated thinking that the empty mat was there and I’d somehow let the rest of the class down. In reality I doubt it really made any difference to them! The scan appointment just went on for so long, hubby wanted to pop to his parents afterwards, and by the time I remembered it was yoga that night the class had been over for an hour and a half! Never mind, hopefully they’ll all forgive me next week!
We also popped into John Lewis on Saturday to have a little preliminary browse at prams (I’ll write another post on this later in the week). It was nice as we’re now far enough into the pregnancy not to feel silly looking at these things and I know we’ll take so long deliberating that we need to start now really! It also made everything feel a little bit more real, if you know what I mean!
When did you start buying things for baby? Am I still jumping the gun a little bit by looking now, or did you have everything organised by this point in your pregnancy?
