Almost half way! One more week and it’ll be time to countdown the weeks until our due date. Gosh, that’s a scary thought.
This week has been quite a chilled one to be honest. I’ve been pretty quiet, think the hormones are going a bit mental at the moment. Felt a bit down, not for any particular reason, but not really been in a great mood!
I’ve felt her moving and kicking a little bit more this week, and I definitely know it was movement! We went to go watch our friend’s gig at a local pub and she started boogie-ing there and also again earlier in the week while in bed. It’s so exciting finally feeling her move around a lot more and I can’t wait for the next few weeks where I should be feeling her kicks more aggressively.
I’ve had a bit of a health kick this week (we’ll excuse the Dominos on Friday night please and thank you) and I’ve been doing a lot more home cooking. I have been particularly enjoying making spaghetti bolognese and loved making chicken, leek and pea pasta bake. I followed the Jamie Oliver recipe from his website and it was so easy and tasted amazing! I’d definitely recommend giving it a go.
We have our next midwife appointment tomorrow and I’m definitely going to be talking to her about my back and hips as they haven’t eased up much at all. I’ve tried hot water bottles, deep freeze, the lot. Nothing is really working for more than a few hours and then it starts up again.
Here’s on the the last week of the first half of pregnancy! 21 more weeks until we get to meet our little princess!!
