So here I am starting my little pregnancy updates on my blog.
I am feeling so lucky to have this little baby growing inside of my belly. Its all safe and cosy and growing stronger everyday. I have started to feel some little movements maybe once a day or every other day, when I sit down and really concentrate. Its so soft and gentle it makes me smile.
It is truly such a special gift to carry your child and I wont ever take it for granted. I love my children and I am so thankful I have been blessed with each of them. I say it often but helping them, nurturing them, and bringing them up is truly one of my passions. I want to raise good, kind people. I think thats what this world needs. I might not always get it right and I might shout sometimes but nonetheless life is wonderful and creating life is even more magical.
I am now 17 weeks and like I said previously I am going to really try to document this pregnancy on my blog as much as I can. I am also making weekly blogs of my pregnancy on my youtube channel.

Our baby’s fingerprints are now fully formed and their hearing gets better everyday. Baby is about 5 inches long. Which is just amazing to me and weighs as much as a turnip. Baby’s skeleton is turing from soft cartilage to bone and the umbilical cord grows stronger and thicker everyday. We cant wait to meet you little baby.
We still don’t know.
I have been in a really good mood for a while now. I have my grumpy moments but thats just me and not pregnancy related! Generally speaking I feel better and healthier then I ever have for a long time. My hair is growing so much and I feel really well. I think that has a lot to do with the sun too. I do love the sun and it makes such a difference to me. It really wakes me up. My energy levels are so good too. I am buzzing around working out of home and at home, nesting already I think as I am always cleaning.
Non really. Slight frequent urination and tender breasts.
Sleeping really well. Although I do wake up for the toilet a lot. Twice a night is a good night!
Just recently in the last two days I have felt a little movement. Which has been amazing. Because I was beginning to worry. The movements are so gentle though it would be very easy to miss them which is why I think I hadn’t felt them yet. I am excited for them to get stronger and harder as baby grows.
FOOD CRAVINGS OR AVERSIONS
I have avoided tea and coffee throughout my whole pregnancy as it made me feel sick. (I love tea and coffee) and just this week I have started to enjoy a nice cup of tea again which has been lovely because I do love a cuppa in the mornings. I love egg still and enjoying avocado. And thats about it at the moment.
HIGHLIGHT OF THIS WEEK
Feeling baby very gentle hello movements in there. It was really lovely. I am so pleased.
LOOKING FORWARD TO
Feeling more movements and for this pregnancy to carry on as it is. I am really enjoying it and this little baby. I also cant wait for Daniel, Sophia and Archie to feel the new member of our family move. That will probably bring tears to my eyes.
