Pregnancy Journey : Week 19 Symptoms & Update

I'm still being sick every morning, this is just part of my routine now so doesn't really bother me too much. The heartburn is rearing its ugly head now and again, when it does I know about it, it even burns to drink water during a bad episode. The hip pain has been getting me down, we had a year end in work which meant a lot of standing up filing things away, I was in so much pain by the end of the day, I pretty much had to spend the whole weekend in bed to rest. 

Changes this week are that I'm now eating properly and am actually getting very hungry at times which is great because up to now I haven't really fancied food, I've just had to force it down. I've started to get a stitch if I walk too fast, I've Googled this and it seems to be a pretty normal thing during pregnancy, I've written it down to mention to the midwife at my next appointment just in case. I've also been experiencing several heart palpations, again, Google tells me this normal but I will check.

My weight has stayed the same so my total weight change so far is minus eight pounds. 

We have our twenty week scan tomorrow and I am so excited to see baby again! I've always said that I didn't want to know the gender, Spencer wanted to find out originally but I managed to convince him that a surprise was the way to go. I'm now changing my mind and wanting to know the gender but it turns out that I convinced Spencer a little too well as he now won't budge. Quite annoying and I am determined to get my own way haha! 

This is my bump at twenty weeks and one day, I can't believe that we're halfway through now, it is rather scary! 

I collected our second Bounty pack yesterday, my midwife gave us the first Bounty pack when we first met her, inside that was a voucher for this one. We decided to collect it from Asda as you get extra samples if you do, those samples were the cutest Winnie the Pooh bibs.

Our bathroom renovation is pretty much finished now. We did want to replace the floor and tiles but with baby coming we have just replaced the bathroom furniture. All that needs doing now is a new panel on the side of the bath and to accessorise it. I can't decide whether to go for a floral Cath Kidston-esque theme or a nautical theme.

I celebrated eating properly again with this delicious takeaway (Spencer had half, I'm not eating quite that much!). I received some lovely goodies from George Home which I will blog about shortly. I went into Primark for a pair of shoes and left with two bags, whoops.


  1. Aw you have a lovely low bump hun x

  2. What a lovely bump - I love reading about your journey and good luck for the scan tomorrow!

    Was that a checked scarf I spied in your Primark bag? If so, I also picked up the same one!
