Any how I'm now 22 weeks pregnant, already! This pregnancy feels like it has went so quickly compared to my first. The baby is definitely more active now and has a party in my tummy most evenings, so much so that the other half can feel it loads. Still waiting on stronger movements for Logan to have a feel, don't want him trying to feel then getting disappointed so I'll wait. My back pain seems to have eased off with having corrected my posture but it does come and go if I do too much or sit the wrong way. What's more painful now is my pelvis and if I sit for a long time I get stiff and sore. Just hoping it doesn't get really bad.
I know I've got 4 months left but the other half and I have started to think about nursery ideas for this little one. Our spare room is currently painted baby blue with white finishings but because it's just recently been painted we didn't want to have to paint it again. It would mean more pennies, which is fine but such a waste, and Logan's baby room was plain creams and browns so we want something different this time round. We definitely don't know the sex of the baby so no idea what we're having but we need to find something that can be either boy or girl with blue in it? I've been pondering maybe Under The Sea theme or possibly choosing a Nursery Rhyme Theme as there's so many. Something like Humpty Dumpty or Hey, Diddle, Diddle would be nice. Who knows really but I'm sure we'll pick something soon and start preparing the room. I'll need to be super organised though as Logan's birthday is in December and the baby is due early January so don't want to be stressing out come the end of the year.
I also saw the community midwife this week which was nice and got to hear the baby's heart beat, was lovely. Finally received my MAT B1 form so will have to sort that for work and since I'm flying away on holiday in October I need to see one of the doctors for a fit to fly form, which btw you now have to pay for! I think the midwife said it was £30 odd, the cheek! It needs doing though so all booked in so I don't forget. My memory is a bit of a nightmare at the moment which doesn't help when you're trying to organise a lot of different things at once. Ah well, at least everything seems to be going in the right direction so can't complain too much.
