First Trimester With Baby Number 2

Hey guys,
I wanted to update my blog with a pregnancy update on my first trimester with baby number 2 nicknames cubby by myself and Tuesday by Hayden. I haven’t actually posted anything about my pregnancy on my blog since the Pregnancy Announcement – If you missed it go check it out.

I am currently in my second trimester but I wanted to do a quick flashback on how I got on during my first trimester which consisted of weeks 1-13. I will write-up my 1st scan which took place in the 12th week in a separate post. I first found out in June 2016 with a BFP on two home pregnancy test after my allergy appointment at the Hospital. I already knew I was pregnant as AF was due on the and she never showed her ugly face.
I took myself along to Primark brought a pack of newborn vests for my announcement to Mr B.

I told Mr B on Fathers Day after one of our special Sunday movie screening when we got home. On the Saturday before I printed on the newborn vest and then wrapped it up along with a Fathers day card from he three of us.

My First Trimester Symptoms with baby number 2

Morning Sickness: No morning sickness at all, didn’t even throw up once.
It was pretty much the same as with Hayden. I don’t think I get morning sickness where I am physically sick. I just feel nauseous at times but so nauseous that I would need to lay down for a couple of hours. 

Exhaustion: My day-to-day life is pretty non existent, hence why my blog was never updated. I was always tired I found it hard to stay awake past 2 PM and bedtime was about 9 PM or as soon as Hayden went to sleep at around 7PM I would be in bed ready to close my eyes. 

Bloated: From the get go I had a bump it was mainly just me being bloated but it still looked like a constant bump (it was cute)  and my belly button stuck out straight away, which is really weird

Cramps: I felt cramping from really early on I’d say from just after implantation as I felt shooting pains around my cervix area. I’m pretty in tune with my body so when I was laying down ready for bed I would feel the pains, which would sometimes make me flinch. I would get random cramping but nothing major, but just felt like aunt flow was coming – but she decided not to show.

Tender Boobs: My boobs were constant hurting & growing this started from pretty early on and they were so tender it was unbelievable so soon as I could take a bra off I would. Actually stopped wearing bras and started wearing the Comfort Bra.

Not a symptom but the flu: Not too long before my first midwife appointment at 7 weeks I was really sick, flu-like sick and because I couldn’t take anything I thought it was the end of the world (ok a bit too dramatic I guess) but I was ridiculously ill, runny nose, sore throat, coughing, really hot and really cold. But managed to get over it was paracetamol, a honey and lemon.

My First Midwife Appointment 

My booking appointment was really good and straight forward this was my 1st midwife appointment after the GP. I was 9 weeks when they took my vitals (urine, weight etc) and everything was perfect. Bloods were also taken and I was given my hospital book, – My weekly change over was to be every Wednesday.

Weight: 63KG

Keep your eyes peeled for my 12 week scan update coming real soon. 


Until Next Time… Charlotte x

    Hang on there, second pregnancies are harder, because you already have one baby to look after, so you can’t rest as much. Don’t worry about blogging. I was very frustrated that I had to stop and loose my page views and rankings, but it’s only temporary.
    Now my baby is 9 months and the toddler goes to school and I have my blogging time back, without feeling constantly fluffy headed and tired.

  26. What a lovely way to tell Mr B! I’m glad everything has gone so well, I had sickness throughout my whole pregnancy so I’m slightly jealous you’re getting away with just feeling nauseous. Congratulations! xx
