HOW’S BABY DOING
Baby is around 3 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and around the size of a beetroot, the weight has also doubled from last week. Baby's immune system is starting to develop ready for the outside world. Baby can frown, squint and even suck its thumb. Baby is also producing white blood cells for fighting infection after birth. 

WEIGHT CHANGE
reluctantly jumped on the scales and was surprised to see I had actually lost 3lb.

SYMPTOMS
Ive actually been quite poorly this week, its been half term and we have been in all week as I have the flu! It has not been fun at all as I can only take paracetamol and soothers, so my recovery seems to be taking longer. Otherwise I haven't really had any symptoms, I have noticed I am not needing to pee as often as before which is a nice welcome break. 

SLEEP
Sleep hasn't been too bad, as I've been poorly I just want to sleep all the time.

CRAVINGS
I have been off my food this week, again I just think this is down to feeling so poorly. I did crave a Mc Donald's one night and stayed up until 12am for Perry to bring me one home from work! 

HOW I’M FEELING
Tired and just feeling like rubbish. I also feel guilty that we haven't done anything this half term, does Mum guilt ever give you a break?

MISS ANYTHING
I miss being able to take cold & flu tablets! Im not sure when I will be getting my flu vaccine, I've had them with my past 2 pregnancies and don't think I had any problems with it. 

FAVOURITE RECENT OUTFIT
Its not so much a outfit, but the Bravado maternity / feeding bra has been so comfy! Ive been wearing it every day and it honestly doesn't even feel like I'm wearing a bra but still provides support. 

BEST MOMENT THIS WEEK
Feeling baby move a lot more has been so nice, I cant wait until we can feel it from the outside! Also hitting the 2nd trimester has been a nice relief for us.

LOOKING FORWARD TO
Feeling better, I realise this whole post has been about me moaning how poorly I feel but its completely taken over my week and wiped me out.
