19 Week Pregnancy Update

Sorry I don’t have much time to update this, due to heavy work demands and packing for our house move this week!

Basically:
I’m still having heartburn, and have begun taking Quick Eze for it for a week or so now, though they’re not working as efficiently as I’d have liked…
My pants don’t fit well anymore 🙁
I had my ultrasound scan, and we found out the gender, but we’re keeping it secret for a week till we have our big reveal / housewarming soon!
My hubbys mum is over to help us pack / move, and its pretty hectic in general. When I get time I’ll upload the ultrasound piccys 🙂

Week 18 Update

SLEEP

Getting used to the added sleep I need.

I’m finding that I’m tossing and turning a lot more now, and sleeping much more lightly.

PELVIC FLOOR

The incontinence thing has gotten a bit out of hand… I think I’ll have to start wearing pads.

HEARTBURN / REFLUX

It’s still there, but eases off a little now sometimes.

STRESS

Definitely feeling the stress of work, and maintaining a house. This week I’ve had about 12 new students sign up!

I had one really rude, disrespectful, and very stressful student, and I got fed up and refused to teach her. I don’t need that in my life.

MOVING PROGRESS

We kept applying for bigger houses and finally got approved for one! We move in a fortnight. (14th Aug).

FOOD / WEIGHT

I’m more hungry this week than before, and I’ve gained at least another kilo or two.

BODY

I’m starting to notice that my belly sticks out more, and seems quite low (which I always thought meant boy).

My boobs are still very sensitive, and I hate having them touched.

My pants are definitely struggling to fit now. I undo them whenever I can.

Still struggling with Constipation. – I’m using Movicol and dulcolax about once a week to ease it.

On about week 12 or something of my cold. So over it.

*Update: Even though I gained a few kilos I seem to have lost them again, and am back to the weight I was in week 2 or the pregnancy!?!?!

My right breast is less sensitive now. The left one is suspected by hubby of oozing a suspicious substance.

BABY BUYS

We’ve held off from buying things until we find out the gender, and move.
