Pregnant with a Peppercorn // 12 weeks pregnant
I’ve got to admit, there have been a few times during this pregnancy where I wondered whether we’d make it to 12 weeks. I’ve been feeling so worried, and so guilty, as we managed to get pregnant so quickly, that the pregnancy wouldn’t last. That probably sounds ridiculous, but the mind of a pregnant woman isn’t always the sanest, with the amount of hormones whizzing around my body at the moment; I cried the other day at Buble’s It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas because, as I sobbed at Nick, “I love Christmas”.
But here we are! I had my dating scan this week, which put me at exactly 12 weeks with an EDD of 22nd June 2015. Peppercorn spent most of the scan wriggling about as the sonographer tried to take measurements, so he/she is definitely taking after Busby already! The scan itself was a bit odd, as Nick wasn’t allowed in until right at the end as we had Busby with us; the sonographer obviously thought she’d distract away from what they were trying to do. Nick felt rather left out by this (which is perfectly understandable), and it felt odd for me seeing Peppercorn for the first time without Nick there. We won’t be taking Busby to the 20 week scan, so we can both experience the whole appointment together.
This week Peppercorn is the size of a lime! Baby’s reflexes have started developing this week, and his little body is growing very quickly.
I’ve been craving ice cream this week… lots of ice cream! It seems to dominate my dreams… I suppose it’s a suitable replacement for prosecco. I’ve also been noshing on bananas, which I’m finding really help with pregnancy hangover.
