Does my bump look big in this? Pregnancy update!

  
As I am almost in the third trimester I thought that I would write a little update about pregnancy number 2 so far. With baby boy I didn’t document anything and took no bump photos. I regret this now as it would be nice to look back on and compare with this time.

I made it through the first trimester with relative ease. I was very tired and had constant nauseau but was never really sick and so it wasn’t too bad. The second trimester has also not been too bad. Again I am constantly exhausted and keep getting colds but compared to the worries that a lot of people have I am doing very well. I will be honest though and say that I don’t enjoy being pregnant. That may sound horrible but it’s true. I love the end result but the actual being pregnant part is rather unenjoyable. It feels a bit like having an alien take over my body!

I feel a bit self conscious of my bump this time around. I never really lost the baby weight from having baby boy and after a c section I have a lovely, how should I describe it, pouch! I therefore feel as though my bump is too big and wobbly this time. My midwife says that I am measuring spot on though so that makes me feel a little bit better.

  

Due to a complicated delivery with baby boy and the fact that he had a low birth weight, I get to have extra growth scans this time. That means that I get to see baby 2 at least twice more. I’m looking forward to that!

The end date is in sight now.  Almost only 12 weeks to go. Scary thought! I have nothing ready and should really get a move on.

Do you enjoy pregnancy?

  1. Strangely enough, I did quite enjoy being pregnant, perhaps because it took so long for it to happen! I loved the idea that something so amazing was happening, though admittedly this thought was quite hard to hold on to when I could no longer see my feet…..
