29 WEEK PREGNANCY UPDATE BABY #2


This week baby boy is the size of a butternut squash, he now weighs roughly 2.5lb and is about 15 inches long. The third trimester has been treating me rather well so far apart from a lot of braxton hicks which is down to not drinking enough fluids. This pregnancy has been really good compared to when I was pregnant with Amelia, I may be speaking too soon but I've actually enjoyed it so far.

I'm finally eating more again this week and have more of an appetite in the evenings unlike previous weeks. I've still not had any food aversions and I'm not craving anything in particular which I thought I would have had some by now. 

I've been waking up at least twice a night this past week with cramps in my legs and feet again, they're not the ones that you can get rid of just by stretching your leg in bed. I literally have to jump out of bed and jump around until they go. The toe separating ones are the worse! Speaking of sleep, I've been having some very weird and vivid dreams recently. I've still not had any dreams of baby boy here in the real world but I've had some of the birth and him trying to escape from my belly ha ha! 

The belly is looking much rounder this week and as soon as I've eaten it doubles in size. It's much more noticeable and people have been asking how far along I am which is weird because it wasn't noticeable at this stage last pregnancy. Movements have been much more regular than before, I can see so many more body parts sticking out and I'm also feeling and seeing movement during the daytime where as before he usually was more active in the evening when I was sat down. 

I'm beginning to get very nervous as the weeks go by, in just over 10 weeks (give or take) we will have another little person to care for. There's been so many questions running through my head from... can we cope, how will I be able to look after 2 kids, is this all too soon? Should we have waited longer? I guess we will find out soon enough but it's just been playing on my mind recently.

  1. i think Amelia will surprise you. i fully expected caleb to be really jealous and not like the fact that he didnt have our full attention. now, he helps me lots and every morning when he wakes up he says "baby!" and looks for her then strokes her head. hes so patient too. it can obviously be a bit tough when both of them are crying but its totally manageable. you'll do great! x

  2. It's very normal to be thinking them things and like Rebecca said in previous comment Amelia will surprise you. Mia really surprised me, she loved helping me and they're both so close now.
    I think theres roughly the same age gap between Amelia and your baby boy and my girls isn't it?
    You're growing :) xx

  3. I had those horrible cramps in my legs when I was pregnant too. Magnesium Oil Spray was recommended to me to soothe the aches and pains.

  7. I remember the awful cramps too from first time round, not there this time yet though! I'm not surprised you're worrying about being 4 and not 3, I think it's natural. But think how many people out there have 2 or more kids and even manage to get dressed and get out of the house, how hard can it be? ;)
