Pregnancy Update: Baby Bird At 20 Weeks

20 weeks already! Whaaat?!

In the tradition of naming the baby after the fruit it’s the size of, this is me and banana!

We recently visited the midwife and got to hear banana’s heartbeat! It was nice and strong but there’s a lot of wriggling going on in there! Next week we have our 20 week scan and we can’t wait, although it’s weird to think that’s the last time we’ll see baby before it arrives!

How I’m Feeling

I’m feeling good! The nausea has gone completely, I’m a bit tired and have twinges in my back and belly at times, but I’m generally feeling pretty good! I’m starting to feel some movement in there too!

What I’m Wearing

Mostly just work clothes and cosy pyjamas! This month we are wearing Christmas jumpers to work which is way comfier and much more fun than my usual uniform!

Otherwise, when I have to actually dress properly and leave the house, my pre-maternity wardrobe has crossed over and my uniform of black skinny jeans, tops and cardigans is still there, just with cosy big sections for the bump!

What I’m Eating

My appetite is pretty much back, although I’m still eating smaller portions. Current favourites include drinking milk and eating nuts. I’d include mince pies, Christmas cake and stollen in there, but I do that every year at this time!

I’d still love to hear from fellow maternity bloggers (I’ve already heard from a few) so feel free to get in touch! Also let me know if there’s anything I’ve missed that you’d like to know about or how this compares to your experience!

  1. Oh, lucky you! I didn't get to hear the heartbeat at 16 weeks and (because I have an anterior placenta) the movements were so muffled I couldn't be sure they weren't just… you know… bodily functions. I relaxed SO MUCH after the 20 week scan – weird to think that was only two weeks ago. The first really hard, unmistakeable kick was about half an hour after getting home from the scan.
