First I will start with a new bump update picture: Me at 27 weeks.
Since I last posted we have had our 20 week scan. Everything was perfectly fine and it was wonderful to see the little bubba again, however in typical style the little imp wouldn’t sit still and kept covering up its face with its arms, so we never really managed to get a good picture! The fidget must take after its father! I also managed to resist the mega temptation to find out what sex Baby ‘M’ is so we now have to wait until January to discover this and every item of baby clothing I own is in a lovely shade of white or cream.
After the 20 week scan I finally felt able to do proper baby shopping and started with much enthusiasm, however it has waned and I have now stagnated with what I have bought. So far we have enough baby clothes to get through the first week (didn’t want to get too many as I want to be able to go and get cute little dresses…oops or little boy clothes) some muslin clothes and a few bits and pieces for the nursery. I finally let Mr M start on the nursery last weekend – but I wont let him put the wallpaper up yet!
No strange symptoms to report – had god-awful backache for a weeks where I almost couldn’t walk, still have lovely constipation and haven’t had a full nights sleep in months thanks to a bladder the size of a pea. I am also still waiting for my libido to come back with a vengeance and at some part I am sure I will starting blooming……. No cravings – which is majorly disappointing as I had all this visions of sending Mr M out in his PJ’s in the middle of the night for tuna and banana pizza – but I still drink 5/6 litres of apple juice a week and have developed a very strong sweet tooth, lovely!
