15 weeks. Yes I missed 14 weeks. Truth? Week 14 was my worst week yet! I was super emotional. I missed my village of women. I hate that everyone is on holidays. 11 weeks of Summer hoilidays started to hurt. I hated the smell of anything. The heat is rising so much that Dubai feels like it moved a little closer to the Sun. I had major Mammy guilt and just felt down right awful about myself.
How far along?
14 weeks 15 WEEKS
Size? I started using an app called Ovia Pregnancy and the explanations for things are so much fun! This week “Baby is now the size of a box of crayola crayons, and will end up being just as colourful!” – So funny! I am definitely getting loads bigger, but I still can’t imagine a tiny person growing inside me who is sucking their thumb or turning somersaults.
Maternity clothes? Currently loving all items from MUMMYISTA which will be opened in Dubai in September. Very excited for the Mummy behind it. I will be sharing my favourites with you all very soon!
Am I Sleeping? No! Or very awkward and little sleep. I have just opened the mail this morning and recieved a Pillow that I will share on Instagram and Snap Chat later. Once I have tested this out I will let ye know how I got on with it and hopefully next week I will say YES to the sleeping question. I live in hope 😉
Best moment this week? I recieved my scan and blood results back lest week from Genesis. My screening for Down’s syndrome and other things they check for show that I was ‘low risk’ at the end of the day we would have loved any baby we were given by God. However, it really is all you want to hear from a DR. That you’re baby is well and to keep doing what you are doing. So as much as I felt getting sick all the time and barely eating or drinking would have to have some effects on a growing baby. Apparently baby is still getting enough nutrients to survive and thrive! Happy – Happy News!
Miss anything? Cooler climates. Really praying for a long Dubai Winter this year! Right now I know my friend Irene from Gingham and Sparkle is laughing at me saying ‘Ya Right!’That is all I am hoping for this year.
Any Movement? As insane as it probably sounds at 15 weeks – YES! Feeling baby move after a cold drink or Ice-Cream. This only happens if I am still though. Im sure it moves all the time but as it is so small I just dont notice If I am up and about.
Food cravings? Cereal and anything that I can drowned in MILK!
Labor signs? No. Hoping this question will stay No for quite some time 😉
Any Symptoms? Still sick, growing daily in the bump and bum, awful skin and general tiredness.
Belly button in or out? In – I don’t think it came out on the other two Little’s either.
Looking forward to? My village of Women returning to Dubai through out August. Honestly – It has been a loooong Summer without them.
Favorite wardrobe piece to wear right now? Would it be wrong to put PJS? To be honest PJS and dressing gowns have seen me through this awful week…
Pregnancy related Item I have loved this week? A new brand coming to Dubai in September ‘MUMMYISTA’ be sure to click follow for some great pregnancy and mummy tips but also some gorgeous ranges of clothes. I am currently loving and living in the organic shorts!
1 thing I am currently having trouble with? Nausea 24/7 – Shock! On a plus only sick in the morning and evening now. Which means enjoying a few hours sickness free in the day.
1 moment I loved this past week? This may sound insane. Summer Clean! As we didnt leave the house all that much, I turned the Little’s into cheap labour! Kidding! (kinda) but we did all work together and try and sort out the house room by room. There really is nothing like a clutter free house and the gorgeous smell of dettol!
1 thing I plan to do for myself this week? I went to the Marina Mall in Dubai yesterday and purchased ALOT in Clinique. Did I feel guilty? Not even one little bit (Sorry Mr O) I just needed to start feeling like a proper girl again! ha.
Saying goodbye to Week 14 and already counting down what is left of Week 15. Really hoping that Week 16 is the week that I can walk past toilets and sinks without having to stop.
Thank you for reading!! I promise to make Week 16 much more exciting 😉
Love, Helly xx
