23 Week Pregnancy Update!
The baby is now a little more than 500gms and measures about 29cm. Her hearing is established and can make out a distorted version of my voice and my heart beating along with my stomach rumblings.
The biggest part of my belly now measures almost 35". My tiny waist which used to be 24" now measures 30". I started off my pregnancy at 59kg and dropped to 57kg due to morning sickness. I now weigh 62kg which is quite good, I thought I would of put on a lot more weight at this point but thankfully I haven't.
I can now feel her moving a lot more frequently, it feels like soft taps which are sometimes quite hard. I can also see my belly move slightly when she pokes me! :) I'm still using the Body Shops body butters all over my body and an extra layer of 'Neal's Yard - Mother's balm' on my bump and breasts and I have no stretch marks to report yet!
Sleeping in a comfortable position had become quite impossible so I purchased the Dream Genii pillow. I have to say it's brilliant, it supports my back and my bump and I wish I got it sooner!
I spotted a potential hospital bag at a bargain price and snapped it up!
I got it for £19.90 from Butlers, it's huge, sturdy and brown. I heart it! Also, my husband wont have to feel funny carrying it, I could never give him a girly floral bag to hold. :)
I got a few things for 0-3 months for the hospital....
I have been making notes of EVERYTHING I have to do as I am a listaholic. How cute is my notebook? It's from WH Smith by the way.
Here's my list for the hospital bag - click to enlarge and tell me if I need to add anything! :D
I told you we had already decided on her name, and we have stuck with it (not revealing it yet). I got some gorgeous fabric letters from Mama's & Papa's that I will hang on the wall above her cot. Awww :)
I also couldn't resist this patchwork dress... obviously! But it's SO cute, I want to wear it hehe!
How are you feeling today? I can't believe I will be exactly 6 months pregnant in a few days, I honestly can't wait to meet her, hurry up 1st of October!
