Pregnancy Update 2nd Trimester:- Weeks 16-19

Firstly I would like to apologise for the delay in this pregnancy update. Things have been crazy busy here, combine that with being ill, meant that blogging has taken a back seat. But I am back!

In this update you’ll get 3 weeks worth.


Over the last 3 weeks I have had some pretty big pregnancy meltdowns. I’m talking uncontrollable crying for no reason. Think Toddler tantrum on a grown pregnant woman…yeah that!


So in my last post I wrote how I wasn’t sleeping particularly well. Well it got much worse with the heat wave we were having last week. However the last couple of nights I have slept really well and not stirring until early morning.

Appetite and Cravings…

So with this pregnancy I haven’t had the same hunger or craving levels that I did with Logan, I the way through my pregnancy with Logan, I constantly ate because I was so hungry. I also had really strong cravings with him too. This was for all 3 trimesters.

However my appetite and cravings are now starting to increase. Some days I am completely ravenous and can’t get enough food. The last couple of days I have had strong cravings for Krispy Kreme doughnut’s and chocolate. We got the doughnuts.


It feels like I’m forever ill with this pregnancy. So over the last 3 weeks I have spent most of it ill. I’m still not fully recovered. At first I wasn’t sure if it was a bad cold or just Hayfever. But the minute the dry tickily cough started I knew I had caught another cold. All the energy had just drained from me, everything was an effort. It does feel like on well in the road to recovery though with just a snottyish nose. Fingers crossed it’ll be gone in the next week.

Bump Watch…

So when I was pregnant with Logan everyone thought I was going to have twins with how early I was showing. It’s no different this time round. My bump is massive with no signs of slowing down. I am under no illusion that I will have another large baby. Logan was 9lbs 14oz, he wasn’t fat he was just long. So I never really got to have that tiny new-born experience I had a long new-born.  I expect to have another long large baby.

Just check out these photos…

You may notice a difference in my hair between the two photo’s. Yes I have had my hair cut very short. I did this myself and with the help of my Husband. There will be a separate post on this very soon.


That’s it for now.
