Half way there!

I'm loving pregnancy but I am so glad I am half way through (20+2) and can now start to prepare and relax. 1st trimester was tough but I think that was due to an undiagnosed illness but now that I'm back on track pregnancy has been so much easier. I've finally been able to take off my seasick bands as my nausea has gone. I'm actually feeling normal and "not pregnant" if that makes any sense. I have no bump yet despite this being #7 and baby is a night owl which is sometimes annoying when I'm drifting off but otherwise I can sleep through. I am so glad this pregnancy seems to be easy.

Anyone else enjoying the 2nd trimester?

I'm half way tomorrow! I'm loving finally having a decent bump and getting the odd little wriggle (Very muffled, anterior placenta, but definitely there).

Still waiting for the glowing skin, fantastic hair and boundless energy!

Can't believe we're half way, looking back it's flown by, I love being pregnant and I'd like this bit to last a bit longer before I get all massive and achey grin

Have you had your scan yet? Got mine booked for next Friday, can't wait to see the little wriggler again.

Babycentre tells me I'm half way there but think I've got another week to go by most people's standards. I'm 19+1. I'm enjoying the second trimester so much more than the first. Decent bump, less naesea and general bleurgh and starting to feel all slightly more real! Only downside is I'm not feeling a huge amount of movement, think I'm going to be told I have an anterior placenta at my 20 week scan. Scan is next Tuesday and really can't wait smile

I'm 19 weeks and looking forward to singing along to Bon Jovi next week.. wooah we're halfway there! (Just me??) Don't have my scan until week after when I'll be 21 weeks which I kind of like because I'll be having less weeks to go than I've done and for some reason that feels good! I've been really lucky nausea and sickness stopped by the time I was 17 weeks so I'm enjoying feeling fairly normal and trying not to think about when it gets worse. The only thing I am still struggling with is the incredible bloating by night time bump is big and uncomfortable and it's just bloat. As in mornings I barely have a bump at all. Generally I just can't wait for January so I'm still counting down the weeks. smile

Had my scan today - still a boy! smile However they're concerned with his sized so got to have 2 weekly scans. Because I've had small babies they don't want to make assumptions and since he has grown, they want to know if he's slowing down or just going at a slow pace. Everything else is fine.

My bump just looks like I'm a little bloated. I still fit in my jeans and t-shirts. Hoping I spring one soon! smile

I'm glad everyone is enjoying it so far. I always think the 20w scan is the most nervewrecking and so glad it's over.

When is your due date ladies? X

Passthebiscuitspls Thu 04-Sep-14 13:43:43

I'm 19weeks today, scan next Friday, I can't wait to see baby again!!

I've had a relatively easy first trimester, this is my first pregnancy and I'm really enjoying it grin I'm due 30th Jan. Seems so far being next year, but it's gone so quick up until now so I know it isn't that far away!

Need to get some lists written and start buying stuff! X

broodysnoopstie Thu 04-Sep-14 15:53:06

I'm due on the 29th Jan!

mrshjb Thu 04-Sep-14 16:13:08

28th Jan for me. Glad to hear you're doing well broody. I remember your scare on the penis dragons thread!!

RetroHippy Thu 04-Sep-14 17:54:20

23rd Jan here! <waves at Broody>

Soooo excited to go baby shopping post-scan. We're not spending a fortune, so lots of stuff we're getting second-hand, but I really want to buy a super cute going home outfit.

natharley11 Thu 04-Sep-14 18:36:15

24th for me. Two days after my little boy birthday.
yep im proper nervous for tomorrow despite baby moving xx

MultipleMama Thu 04-Sep-14 19:46:29

Mine's 19th Jan.

I really don't need to buy anything but I want a cute 1st outfit too (homebirth) for the birth announcement cards.

DH has been completely overbearing today. I only wanted a Starbucks, you'd think I had agreed to go sumo wrestling... hmm.

jenmcspen Thu 04-Sep-14 20:15:44

I'm due 30th Jan with my first grin

broodysnoopstie Fri 05-Sep-14 08:20:30

Aw Thanks Mrsh! Hi Retro! x

Enaj30 Fri 05-Sep-14 09:33:37

23rd Jan for me too <waves at Retro>

Cant blooming wait, I have my scan on 16/9 so got a little while to wait but am so excited but also nervous! Think thats normal though! Have started to feel little movements, like the odd 'muscle spasm' - have never felt flutters just the spasms but cant wait to start feeling baby everyday when he/she gets more powerful :-)

natharley11 Fri 05-Sep-14 09:41:59

ooh enja and retro your day before me. you can advise lol
my scan today at 11.25 soo nervous

Enaj30 Fri 05-Sep-14 09:59:49

Good luck Natharley! Let us know how you get on!

MultipleMama Fri 05-Sep-14 12:20:29

Good luck, Narth!

I find them daunting always thinking that they're going to find something wrong, and they did last year, and now growth scans again sad

Anybody finding out gender or are you wanting to keep it a surprise? I was too impatient to be surprised grin

Ellisisland Fri 05-Sep-14 12:25:43

23rd Jan here too ! Had my scan the other day. Went fine had a trainee who was lovely but scan lasted an hour with her doing bits then the sonographer taking over etc. I was almost falling asleep at the end the room was so warm and dark!
They thought they saw a problem with his bowel but after a senior person came in the room they said it was the equipment and all is fine.

Planning on telling DS 2.5 in a few weeks. Have a book that is supposed to help explain it all but DH is dissapointed I didn't get him the 'where willy went' story we saw the other day!
Wishing everyone else a easy second half smile

natharley11 Fri 05-Sep-14 12:43:22

hey all just wanted let you know scan went fine and baby is a little boy smile smile

Enaj30 Fri 05-Sep-14 13:52:04

Ah lovely news! Glad all was well x

broodysnoopstie Fri 05-Sep-14 16:10:40

Lovely news. I can't decide whether or not to find out if it is blue or pink!

mrshjb Fri 05-Sep-14 16:30:19

Congratulations smile
