I saw this on another blog and thought I'd give this format a go for something different. If you like it let me know and I'll carry on writing some further updates this way.
HOW AM I FEELING: I'm feeling amazing! I have no complaints except for the leg cramps which continue to give me grief in the middle of the night (had me in tears on Saturday night because my calf muscle locked up in a cramp for 20 minutes and I couldn't get rid of it no matter what I did) but these are just minor annoyances in the scheme of things.
WEIGHT GAIN: 7kg
CRAVINGS/AVERSIONS: Bacon, eggs and cheese. I live on bacon and egg toasties, panini's, pies or just plain bacon and eggs themselves, plus anything I can put bacon in like macaroni cheese or just bacon sandwiches. And I love anything with cheese. Cheese and pickle on crackers is my current favourite snack. Yum! No aversions at the moment, I think I had enough aversions in the first 16 weeks to last a lifetime. I just love food at the moment! Starting to crave chocolate too. Uh oh!
MOVEMENT: This baby is going through a super active stage at the moment. I used to only really feel him kicking about in the evenings just after dinner when I was relaxing on the couch and now he's active every couple of hours and all through the night. Enough that it wakes me up and the movements have changed from kicks to a rolling type of movement where I can literally feel him moving around in there, as well as kicking and punching. He's a very active little man! The HG likes to say he's practicing his fishing techniques or surf moves.
OTHER UPDATES: I brought the cot! I popped into the baby shop yesterday that I had my cot on layby at and found that it was on special for the weekend only with $100 off! Initially I was gutted but then I managed to persuade the shopkeeper to let me have it at that price if I paid off the layby then and there and I also picked up a cot mobile (with a whale, bee, aeroplane and ABC block) and an octopus toy and still paid less than I had left to pay off initially. I was stoked! We also pick up our couch/bed settee from the furniture shop and the HG is knuckling into the nursery this week so we can (hopefully!) start moving everything in next weekend.
UPCOMING MILESTONES: We start our antenatal classes in a months time which is exciting and I have my next appointment with my midwife next week where we will discuss my birth plans and set up my appointment with the specialist regarding my asthma.
