Currently 16 (+5) weeks, and I just thought I would do an update on how I have been during this past week. This week has actually been really exciting, as suddenly I have seen a growth and have just had a little bump pop out of no where; its like it happened overnight! Also had the (not so lovely) pleasure of discharge coming from my breasts which was very weird to experience at first and still freaks me out big time, something I really need to get used to. In a more positive light at least I know my body is preparing for the pregnancy.
At 16 weeks you can actually find out the gender of your unborn baby, and its killing me inside to know! We have our next scan booked on the 27th of September and that is under the NHS, so we can find out the sex of the baby then, but privately they can tell from the 16th week. I would really really like to find out but in a couple of weeks Jake and I are going on holiday so we are putting money aside for spending money now. I am just very impatient and would love to know if there is a little boy or little girl inside. First of all I had a feeling that it would be a boy, and as rumours go, they say that you don’t get any morning sickness if its a boy! I don’t know how true this is, but I’ve been very lucky to have no morning sickness (apart from today strangely). Then after a few weeks I though that it would be a girl. So now I have no idea! I also wanted to get a little teddy bear with our baby’s heartbeat in; I think it would help sooth the baby when it is born and would be a lovely keepsake until he/she is here.
Today was a little bit painful, as I went to work but I had a headache from the minute I woke up. It was quite warm today so I don’t know if it was the baby or the heat that caused this, however after a couple of hours it turned into a migraine and I felt so faint and sick I had to come home. As soon as I walked through the door I threw up half of my lunch and went for a nap! As I am writing this now it is still there so I hope that I feel better by tomorrow as I have work again.
Hoping the 17th week of pregnancy is healthy, and then I will be enjoying the sun and pools of Spain during my 18th week. It is also pay day next week so I may have to treat the baby to something (although its early!).
