My pregnancy, well what I had of it.. was amazing. I didn’t suffer with sickness meaning I got to enjoy everyday! There wasn’t much to complain about at all it was a healthy low risk pregnancy.
I felt flutters quite early around 13/14 weeks which was an odd things to experience because I didn’t know what they were it was just like bubbles in my belly. Blue definitely was a music baby as the flutters were stronger while listening to music. I had my second scan at 15 weeks and this time baby was playing ball so they got the measurements and my estimated due date was April 10th 2018 , 5 days before daddy’s birthday! I was convinced they’d end up sharing a birthday.
The only strong symptoms I had was heartburn , boy oh boy it was bad. I was constantly taking gaviscon to ease it praying baby had lots of hair to make it worth it. When I hit 19 weeks pregnant I started to feel proper little kicks , like someone tapping on my belly from the inside! They weren’t very strong at this point put they were definitely there. Come 20 weeks I had my big scan to find out if baby is growing well and the gender.
At the scan they had to do multiple measurements and checks to make sure the growth of baby was how it should be. Blue was led in an awkward position so they couldn’t see everything they needed too which led to another type of scan. After all checks were done we wanted to find out the gender. Straightaway the lady said ” you’re having a little boy” this made me cry because I knew deep down from 12 weeks we were having a boy.
We announced the gender the same day and started to look for boys clothing etc , soon we had a full wardrobe of clothes for him. As he got stronger he became more of a night baby meaning 3/4 am hit and he’d be kicking away. I honestly cannot explain the feeling of your little baby kicking you.
As for the rest of the pregnancy I got to experience, 7 weeks and 4 days , it went by so so fast. I’m gutted we never experienced full term but maybe next time…
Now the blog posts start to get emotional and will show you exactly what we went through.
Such a big bump for such a tiny baby.
