12 Weeks Pregnant | Baby #3

12 weeks 5 days

Monday 23rd April 2018

We don't know yet.

Baby is measuring over 2 inches, about the size of a ripe apricot, starting to develop reflexes as the brain continues to grow. If you was to poke your abdomen baby will respond by wriggling (although you won't feel this yet). The kidneys are beginning to function, and baby has also started building up the waste it will store for its first poo! Baby's neck is beginning to straighten lifting its chin off its chest.

Since I got pregnant I have put on 3lb so far, although I think this is the last time I'm going to step on any scales! 

First Trimester | Weeks 6 - 11 | Baby #3

So I thought I would share my early pregnancy symptoms with you all, we found out at 6 weeks that we was expecting baby #3 and that was purely based on me having no symptoms whatsoever. We have not long suffered a loss at 10.5 weeks and so my body has been all over the place and this also led me to wait so long before testing! Ive tried to keep notes on how I have been feeling recently.

6 Weeks Pregnant 
- We found out! 
- Peeing more often then normal.
- A few spots on my forehead.
- Craving tuna, mayo and sweetcorn sub rolls.

7 Weeks Pregnant 
- Boobs have got bigger / hurt sometimes.
- When I get hungry I feel sick.
- Oh the headaches...
- Still peeing for England.
- Spots are still here *yay* -.-
- Really tired, falling asleep on the sofa most early evenings!

8 Weeks Pregnant
- Super tired and emotional.
- Starting to get hungry quite often.
- Oh the bloat...
- Met my One to One Midwife for the first time, bloods were taken.


I am so happy to finally announce that we are expecting again! It has been a long road that I will go into it at another time, but I thought I would share a announcement post letting you all know our exciting news! *Oh and Archie is excited, even if he doesn't look it in the photo haha* 

Our Rainbow baby is due in April 2018, and we couldn't be happier. I will have my pregnancy updates up soon as its been a bit crazy the last few weeks, hence the silence over here, so please bear with me. I am looking forward to sharing this journey with you all again!
