Pregnancy: 19 Weeks


There's been tons going on this week with trying to get Logan all organised for going to school next week, booking swimming lessons, cramming in our last days of the summer holiday and physio appointments. It's all been full speed ahead here.

Pregnancy wise I've been feeling very tired and major hungry. All I want to do is sleep and eat. I'm putting the tiredness down to running around like a loony and also the fact that my body has increased it's blood count by 50%, wow! The eating, well it says on the NHS website that I'm more likely to be hungry at this stage so I'm going along with it, haha.

I can feel the baby moving a lot more now which is lovely, still can't be felt on the outside yet but I'm sure in the next few weeks it'll happen. I've got my 20 week anomaly scan late next week and I'm feeling a little nervous about this. Just having a panic I think and hoping that the baby is growing normally. For those of you that don't know the anomaly scan is carried out between 18 - 21 weeks of pregnancy and is a detailed scan which checks for any major physical abnormalities in the baby, although it doesn't pick up every problem. Fingers crossed all goes well.

My back has been hurting quite a bit as well in the last few weeks so yesterday saw a trip to the physio. The physio department at my local hospital hold pregnant women groups now to show you how exercise and posture can help with your sore back. I was a bit sceptical at first however the lovely Lynne, physio, was great and showed the group lots of different exercises. She also explained why and where we'll be getting back pain/ pelvic pain with the help of some handy props. Apart from the room being far too hot the session was really good and I was reassured to hear that if my back pain does get any worse I can have a one to one session if I want. My friend, who has just had her baby, also suggested reflexology so I'll look into that as well if need be.

I'm looking forward to the weekend now with a lovely relaxing meal lined up with friends and a trip to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival lined up for Logan. Should be fun.

What is it with physio rooms being hot? The physio suite at PRM is absolutely roasting all the time!

OhSoGawjess - I know, totally starving all the time! Thanks :)

Melaina25 - Completely agree, you'd think with pregnant women they'd have it temperature controlled lol. Far too hot!

Lovely bump! Hope the physio is helping. I found myself getting more hungry with this pregnancy too and went through a phase of craving tomatoes all the time, oddly. I reckon your body tells you what you need so eat up and enjoy the food! Thank you for linking up to #BlogBumpClub. x
