21 WEEK PREGNANCY UPDATE - BABY #2



Another week has flown by and baby boy is now the size of a pomegranate or banana depending on which pregnancy app I check. He is roughly 12.07 oz and is now able to swallow amniotic fluid as his digestive system develops. My utereus is definitely getting bigger and it moving closer towards by belly button and I can definitely feel it more when I have a full bladder or when I'm having a braxton hicks.

We had our 20 week scan on Tuesday which you can read all about here, it's a shame we didn't get a better photo as you can't really see his limbs or face much compared to Amelia's 20 week scan but it's still nice to have a scan photo to look back on. I think he looks like an alien to be honest ha ha! 

Nothing much has really changed this week apart from my bump which is definitely growing! You can now see my bump even when I'm wearing a baggy top which is crazy as you couldn't tell I was pregnant with Amelia until around 30 weeks. Clothes are all still fitting comfortably and I've weirdly still not put any weight on. 

I've finally been able to drink Dr Pepper in the evenings again which is good and I haven't really had any aversions to food this week. At the beginning of the week I felt really faint at work and felt exactly how I used to when I was anaemic. The dizzy blurred vision, ringing in the ears, distant hearing and feeling weak at the knees. It actually happened twice in the space of a couple of hours and I literally couldn't concentrate on anything. I haven't had a blood test taken in a while so I'm assuming it's my iron levels which I will pop by the hospital to get them taken in the week. 

We've also started discussing names this past week and neither of us can agree on one that we both like. He doesn't like any thing I suggest and I don't like anything he suggests. I actually only like a couple of boy names, I'm pretty fussy and don't like anything boring and don't like anything too random. I find it much harder with boy names. I have a feeling baby boy will be nameless at this rate! With Amelia we wrote a list of top 10 girls names we both liked and Amelia happened to be the top one on both of ours and we had already mentioned we both liked the name. I think we had her name chosen around this time already. 

That's all for week 21, if you missed last week's update click here.

When did you have your baby's name chosen?

  1. Your belly is defiantly growing and is just gorgeous!! We had Paige and Parkers names around 24/25 weeks. I think Parkers was actually a week or so earlier but we didn't want to say defiantly just incase we changed our minds haha. You will find the perfect name soon!! xx

  2. You're definitely getting a baby bump there :) With our boy we're really struggling to agree on a name, there's only one name we agree on but if it doesn't suit the baby when he's born, who knows what we'll call him :P
