Emily - Week Twenty.

Today is - Monday, April 1st, 2013

How far along - 20 weeks

Baby is the size of  - A Banana

Baby is - A girl!! 

Total Weight Gain - 14lbs.

What's going on with Baby - Emily is now measured from head to heel and is around 26cms. {That seems massive to me!} She is swallowing more now and is also producing Meconium, 

What's going on with Mummy - I cannot believe that we are now half way through! It's dragged a bit from week 14 so I'm hoping now time will start to go a bit quicker. Not too quick though, I need some time to prepare! 

Maternity clothing - Definitely with Trousers. With tops I can mostly get away with a bigger size.

Sleep - I'm still not getting too tired during the day so I'm not having to nap anymore but I find it so hard to wake up in the morning which is so un-like me. The clocks went forward yesterday and this morning felt like torture. 

Movement - I feel lots of kicks at night, once James is in bed and I've settled down. The past few days I have been feeling more during the day but not loads. Completely different to James! I think this little one is going to be a night owl. 

Food cravings/Aversions - My appetite isn't as good as it was. If I don't eat though I feel more nauseous so I'm having to force myself to eat.  

Symptoms -

Morning Sickness - Still there on and off. The beginning part of the week was good. The past few days not so much. 

Acne - I tried a facemask and gone back to the cleanser I used as a teenager. 

Ligament pain - This is on and off and not really causing me too much bother. 

How is this pregnancy different from the first - My morning sickness was a thing of the past with James at this point. Also I was feeling more movement during the day at this point with James. 

Best moments of the past week -

James finishing Nursery for the Easter Holidays. 
Watching him do his Egg hunt yesterday morning!
Getting lots of baby girl clothes from a friend.
