Over half way!

Firstly apologies for the lack of updates. If I’m honest I’ve been struggling to think of what to say. I’m very conscious that I started my blog as a way getting help and support during my struggle with recurrent pregnancy loss. Now that we have made it over half way with pregnancy number 5 I don’t want to feel like I’m rubbing my good fortune in the faces of those why have supported me and are still struggling with their own battles. I also find that thinking about the pregnancy too much makes me feel quite anxious so I’m better just taking each day at a time and trying not to over think.

For those who are interested (and I completely understand if you are not in a place where you want to read about pregnancy and babies – I’ve been there), we are now 21 weeks pregnant. We had our scan yesterday and everything is looking good although I do need to go back for another scan in a couple of weeks as the baby’s position didn’t allow the sonographer to get a good look at the baby’s spine.

I don’t really have a bump yet but have definitely put on weight (probably a bit too much but I can’t face the scales) so I’m currently feeling a bit tubby and unattractive rather than blossoming and maternal but I’m guessing the bump can’t hide for much longer so I should be looking pregnant in the next few weeks.

As for the nausea, I’m feeling a lot better and have much more energy but I still have waves of nausea at points during the day and the excess saliva and horrid metallic taste have not subsided so I fear they may be here for the whole journey.

The boy and I had a great break in Croatia last week. The weather was lovely and it was great just to chill out and spend some quality time together. I think we might try to get in one more break before the baby arrives next February but we’ll see how things go.
