14 Week Pregnancy Update - Baby #2


Now that I'm 14 weeks pregnant, it officially marks the start of the second trimester! Here's how I've been feeling this week...

DUE DATE
31st October 2017


BABY DEVELOPMENT
This week the baby is the size of a peach, it's length is around 3.42 inches and weighs around 1.52 ounces. Tiny hairs called lanugo, are growing all over baby's body, which eventually forms the fingerprints pattern on baby's fingers. The baby's skin is still very translucent and the tiny veins are visible, the lungs are continuing to develop and baby can also suck its thumb, frown and squint.

GENDER
We find out for sure in two weeks time, but I still think it's a girl.

MOOD
I've been feeling really good this week, apart from the few occasions where I've been sick.

SYMPTOMS
Apart from nausea and sickness on those few occasions, I've been feeling really well. I've lost nearly a stone on Slimming World since I found out I was pregnant, although I can't tell any difference.

SLEEP
I've been sleeping really well, especially since my new Theraline maternity pillow arrived. A full review can be found here!

MOVEMENT
I'm still not feeling any movement, but I'm still using my doppler occasionally for reassurance.

FOOD CRAVINGS OR AVERSIONS
I haven't really had either this week. I don't seem to have had many cravings at all this pregnancy, however I remember it was the opposite with Sophie and I craved all sorts!

HIGHLIGHT OF THIS WEEK
My highlight of this week is finally reaching the second trimester! We've also been thinking of baby names too, which is exciting!

LOOKING FORWARD TO
I'm looking forward to our trip to Northumberland at the weekend and enjoying a little family break.
