I spent the whole morning being sick. I feel so sad as we were supposed to be going into Hull to cheer Nick on at the end of his 10k, but there was no way I would have been able to go. I was feeling so much better on Friday and Saturday; I was convinced I was through the worst of it, but today has completely knocked me.*sigh* Enough grumbling now…
I spent this afternoon having an almost three hour nap, which was very much needed and I’ve felt much better since waking up!
Today, I also tried the bicarb gender test which came out as girl! Only 20 days until we find out!

I’m feeling good again today. Tired, but good. I have such a craving for olives this week! Olives and avocados, which is funny because Bun is the size of an avocado this week.
I’ve spent most of the day in the garden – trying to tidy up a bit and I planted my new rose too. My back is aching a lot this evening, and the school run was interesting because of it; I had a bit of a waddle going on!
I took Busby out for an impromptu dinner date at the Italian in our village because she keeps not-so suitably hinting that she wants to go back there for pizza. I had the most gorgeous pot of olives to munch on. They were incredible! I also snuck some of her pizza… Mummy Tax and all that jazz.

I didn’t sleep very well last night because I felt Bun ripple across my tummy at midnight… which excited me greatly! Then I was urging him/her to do it again.
Anyway…! I fulfilled the avocado craving this morning before my driving lesson and it was gooood! My driving lesson was also brilliant and there’s every chance that I may pass before Bun’s arrival in December, if I keep progressing as I am. I was always so worried that I’d be appalling at driving, but it seems quite natural, which has been a big relief. There’s just so much to remember… and I can imagine it gets even more difficult with children in the car! I think that should be part of the test though – the sound of kids bickering in the back while you try and drive safely along.

Nausea has been rife today. I was almost sick in my hand on the way to our toddler class this morning. Not ideal. I had to swing by town on the way to grab a bottle of water and something to eat so I could survive the hour long chaos of the class!
Friday’s are now super busy days, and I’m always broken by the time I sit down after bedtime. All the walking is excellent for keeping my fitness levels up; I just wish this tiredness would disappear now! Come on second trimester – make me bloom!

We’re travelling down to Wales tomorrow for a few days at Bluestone. I’m looking forward to the break from the normal routine and lots of fresh air, as that always helps the nausea.
My Mother-in-Law put on the most amazing afternoon tea earlier though, which helped immensely with the nausea. Grazing is the way forward.
I can’t believe I turn 16 weeks tomorrow – it still doesn’t seem real.
