Pregnancy Update – 15 weeks

Pregnancy Update – 15 weeks

I can’t believe I’m already 15 weeks and 3 days pregnant already. The last few weeks feel like they’ve flown over.

I thought I’d try and do regular updates and pictures when I remember.

So here goes.

Stretchmarks

None yet. I’ve been using Materni Care cream at least once a day to try and prevent them for as long as possible.

Maternity Clothes

I have been living in leggings and maxi dresses at home but as I wear a uniform for work I’ve had to order some larger tops at work and went on a shopping trip to pick up some black maternity trousers, which turned out to be much harder than I’d anticipated!

Having tried EVERY highstreet shop I finally found some in Debenhams which are actually pretty good and only cost £20. I pleased they’re quite good, as there was no other choice.

I am so suprised by the fact there is nothing in the shops for pregnant women. All the shops I went to told me they stock their maternity ranges online, which wasn’t much help when I’d sat for 40 minutes to get parked to go to the shops. Usually online purchases are great, but because my body is changing and I’m stuggling with sizes I’d rather try things on.

 

Sleep

Im starting to feel a little uncomfortable in bed, my tummy is getting bigger and as I sleep on my stomach it’s becoming more difficult. I’m trying to sleep on my side and have found a pillow with one leg over it helps a little. I dread to think what it will be like when I’m huge.
 
I’m sleeping slightly better than I was and even managed a lie in this morning, and I’m getting up less during the night to wee.

My back

I have a back condition and until I found out I was pregnant I took medication nightly and also strong painkillers, but I had to stop taking them. Luckily so far my back hasn’t been any worse than normal, though I have had quite a lot of pain in my coccyx /very lower back, usually when Im sat down at work. I’m due to see a consultant about my back in a couple of months, so will make sure I mention it.
 
Sickness
 
I still haven’t been sick, but still have bursts of nausea, though it’s no where near as bad as it was.
 
Emotions
 
Suprisingly I feel ok, I get a little bit weepy if something emotional is on TV but nothing too much more than normal. I think my hubby is suprised I haven’t killed him, or become a psycho pregnant bitch from hell! 


Movement
 
I think I’m starting to feel the first feelings of movement. I keep getting what can only be described as tickly butterflies in my stomach. I presume it’s movement or bad wind!
 
Cravings
 
Greggs cheese pasties and anything stodgy.

Preparations

The room that is going to be the nursery has had its floor laid, walls stripped and first coat of cream paint applied. It needs some of the walls sanding before another coat is applied and some edging for the floor and then I can start making it look like a babies room!

I’ve also started buying wipes and nappies when I see them on special to put away in a box. It will save money in the long run.
