Omg ,, I have just come to the end of my 18th week of my pregnancy and wow its still going so fast, please slow it down .
This week seems to have gone way to fast for me that I have come to realise I actually think I missed the whole thing, Is that possible?
At the end of the day I know my little bump is still happily growing inside my tummy as I can feel those little flutters wriggling around .
I have found that this is not something that happens regular as of yet but comes and goes from sometimes feeling the movements daily to not feeling a niggle for a full day or two.
I feel great in myself and now and again I know I need to rest as I start to feel a little drained almost instantly if I have over done it with housework or working to hard.
Backache is becoming a regular occurence, not because of the baby bump as I feel it is not as big to make a difference as of yet, but because of my organs slowly being squished upwards to my chest making me get that aching pain under my ribs and higher back area especially when sat at a chair for too long .
I remember getting that same feeling towards the very end of me carrying my youngest son because he actually had his foot under my rib constantly and I hoped to never feel that pain again but it has come back telling me I am bound to get it worse as the baby actually moves up into that area.
The sense of smell seems to have drowned out a little and those smells I seemed to hate before such as coffee and brown sauce , making me feel sick , seems to have disappeared making life a little easier for making the families meals and enabling me to eat some of the foods I felt I was missing out on the past couple of weeks due to the morning (or in my case day and night ) sickness.
Although this week feels like it has absconded from me without me realising , I have come to the realisation that in one more week , I will be finding out what the sex of our baby is .
I know I am excited to find out, I wonder if those Old Wives Tales we tested out the other week actually work or really are just a tale , not long to go now till we know .
