How far along: 28 weeks
Symptoms: I’ve started to get heartburn towards the end of this week. Nothing too crazy, but enough for it to be quite uncomfortable at times. I haven’t changed what I’m eating so I’m not very sure what has triggered it. Hope it goes away soon. I didn’t really have it much with Little I. I’m still super tired. My legs have been SO SWOLLEN. I don’t remember much of this with Little I either. I was wearing a pencil skirt at work this week and I looked down at my ankles and was shocked! I need to get some leg balm or something to soothe those bad boys. It has to be said, I do feel a lot more pregnant this week. That sounds silly to write down, but I just mean that I think my body is starting to realise it can’t do as much as it used to as much as my mind wants to think it can!
Food Cravings: Nothing different really.
Movement: SO much movement! As per usual. It’s nice, but quite tiring being kicked about from the inside all day, every day. I’ve managed to catch some of the really big kicks and movements on camera.
Sleep: I’m so tired by the end of every day that sleep seems to be fine. I fall straight asleep and then usually only get disturbed when I have to get up for a wee at about 5am.
Stretch Marks: Still nope. I got a bit of a scare when I was editing my last pregnancy video and thought I saw a couple, from the front, but it must have just been some marks from my jeans. I’d bloody hope so with the amount of oil and cream I’m slapping on at the moment!
Miss Anything: Exercise! I know that sounds crazy but I feel so unfit and bleh.
Best Moment: Catching some of the kicks on camera and baby responding to my voice.
Worst Moment: Heavy tree trunk legs.
Looking forward to: Going home for my birthday :)
