20 weeks Pregnant

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Today I am 20 weeks pregnant. The weeks seem to be passing by quicker and quicker. Later on today we have our 20 week scan so wish me luck! Hopefully we will get to find out baby's sex once we've checked everything is ok. Gracie is determined it is a girl, I also have an inkling it may be a girl and Andy has voted boy just to be different, so let's see who is right this time.

I have been very busy this past week. I've had a week off work so have been in nesting overdrive. Trying to get all the big work done in the house before baby arrives. I've decluttered majorly both in the house and garage. I've gutted the garden and have been enjoying starting from scratch planting lots of new plants. We've picked wallpaper and accessories for our bedroom and are planning a complete renovation of the bathroom. Hopefully my other blog www.theforeverhousecharm.com will have lots of new posts and material soon! 

I am at the stage where I can't seem to stop eating! No matter what the time is I find myself raiding the cupboards. Our food shopping was extortionate this week and i keep finding that no matter how much I eat I still feel hungry. This could probably explain why I have big babies!

I am also finding that the dreaded 'baby brain' gets worse each pregnancy. So have had to try and get my life organised by carrying a notebook and pen EVERYWHERE! I've been writing lists and reminders for everything and it seems to be working very well for me to the point I'm enjoying the satisfaction of getting everything done. 

Last week my midwife recommended I started taking my iron supplements again. I feel really ill with Iron in tablet form and so always use Spatone which is a liquid form. Yes that sounds nasty but if you mix it in orange juice you can barely taste it and amazingly orange juice helps maximum absorption of the Iron so it's a win win. I'm feeling much better already and so will now have it on prescription to save me a few pennies!

Now I feel like I'm waffling a bit. I'm full of nerves and can't stop talking so I best go keep myself busy and will let you know how I get on with my scan later today!
