21 Week Bump Date | Mini Moore Diaries

11355037_1084031071641384_422823905_n

21 Weeks Exactly

Only 19 weeks to go & feeling pretty good to be honest. Still some back aches but that’s only going to get worse. I can definitely feel mini is growing her kicks are so clear she’s still just as stubborn about kicking on cue & refuse to do it for the camera lol. Our next big project over the coming weeks is getting her bedroom done hopefully we’ll be making a start next week, my only issue is colour we know our accent colour but can’t decide whether to go grey or white half our house has grey in it lol

The End of Week 21

21 weeks 6 days

Basically nothing to report although I’m feeling some of that fatigue starting to creep back in lately & noticed getting up & down is not as easy as it used to be which isn’t the easiest as I work in a day nursery with 2 year olds lol other than that, my ever growing bump & her kicking I wouldn’t even know I was pregnant. We’ve finally made a start on her nursery I’m so excited it’s the last room in our house to finish then we’re finally done with decorating for a good few years HALLELUJAH!

Bye for now

Love

20 Weeks exactly

20 weeks today finally made it to the halfway point depending on whether mini is planning on being early or late lol I’m so excited to be at this point were out of the teens & into our 20s “she’s growing up so fast” she’s a proper little live wire and loved to remind me she’s here, sometimes faintly sometimes with her Dr Martins lol. My weight gain at this point is still slow I’ve gained 0.8lbs this week taking my total up to 3.8lbs overall rather than the recommended 10/18lbs although I’m not particularly concerned as I’m eating & she seems fine I have my 20 week scan on Thursday so I’ll get some confirmation then. & hopefully I’ll get a second confirmation on gender just to put my mind at ease lol overall this has been a fab week I’m excited to see mini again this coming week & can anybody tell me what the heck a Belgian endive is?

 The End of week 20

20 weeks 6 days

Bump Pic 20w 6d

I take all of my bump pictures at plus 6days so they’ll always come at the end of a post as it’s the end of that week, Mini is halfway cooked & most definitely a girl had my anatomy scan this week & mini is perfect! I’m so excited to meet our little girl things have been good this week getting some back ache now but nothing too bad yet I know it’s only going to get worse. If you follow me on YouTube I’m still doing videos but my laptops been funny about connecting my cable so hopefully I should be able to load them up soon for now here are some scan pictures

I may be biased but I’m pretty sure she’s the cutest baby ever we’re going to have to do something about that thumb sucking though! haha

Bye for now

Loved it

Bump progress! Weeks 10 – 19

Here are how my baby bump has progressed over the past 19 weeks I took a picture at 4 weeks but didn’t start taking any real pictures until 10 weeks because before that there was nothing to show

Pregnancy Week 15 – 19 updates

928537_170280503329345_399564295_n

15 weeks today! We’re officially in the 2nd trimester baby is actually looking like a baby, My next big milestone is viability so 9 weeks to go until then. Symptoms this week have been sporadic to say the least, terrible migraines & sickness, sharp cramps then nothing I’ve actually lost 3lbs in 3days after my awful migraine & sickness on Friday it’s been a struggle to get my appetite back up so I’m currently back to being under my pre pregnancy weight. Baby seems to be doing perfectly fine though I’m excited to feel the first flutters in the next few weeks and even though I’ve lost weight my bump is still expanding lol no cravings this week & also no aversions so we’re doing well been having the weirdest dreams all surrounding finding out the gender but no luck with those so far it’s 2xGirl & 2xBoy lol Only 11 days until we find out babies gender so excited to find out if we’re green or purple.

16 weeks today! Babies growing & so am I I feel huge in the evenings lol I’m back to my exact pre pregnancy weight not that it counts for anything atm I lose & gain weight all the time lol baby is the same size as a pickle or avocado depending on the app, baby weighs 3.5oz & is 4.6inches long which seems adorable, I keep waiting to feel baby but so far nothing yet at least I don’t think so lol. No cravings or aversions no appetite increase or decrease its pretty smooth sailing over here atm, & here as usual is my countdown till we find out the gender 5days!!

17 Weeks today! Tick tock time is flying by & our little Mini is a girl! Which is why today’s pic is pink 🎀💜 I was so convinced we were having a boy but I’m so excited either way lots of pretty bows & dresses which I can definitely get on board with lol. This week I have definitely felt some kind of movements mainly her rolling around I’m not sure if I’ve felt any kicks yet & if that’s what they are then they still aren’t very consistent just yet. Mini is the size of a pomegranate or orange is approx 5.1inches & weighs 5oz. I still haven’t gained any weight still exactly 134.5lb the exact same as 17weeks ago lol god knows how as my stomache is huge 😂. Our mini also has a name Taylor Jade 💜 I don’t think I’ll be able to confidently believe I’m having a girl until we have the gender confirmed at the 20 week scan hopefully she’ll be more co-operative and stay still for abit then lol just 4 weeks to go!

18 weeks today! Had a lovely day hubby finally felt mini kicking! It was so cute she’s going to be a little kick boxer lol I can feel her a lot now throughout the day she’s growing fast now & I can tell as I’ve finally started gaining weight I’m now up 2.5lbs but could also be that I seem to have had an appetite upgrade lol not really any symptoms a bit of nausea occasionally, light headaches & heartburn. Unfortunately my main symptom is frequent urination I literally go every ten minutes it’s getting ridiculous I may invest in adult nappies lol i’m up constantly throughout the night it’s frustrating but she’s worth it ☺️💜💜

19 weeks today! Been to the races for the day today & been stood up all I’m absolutely exhausted lol my weekly weigh in this morning & I’ve gained 0.5lbs lol that take my total up to 3lbs overall which is still looking good. The past week has been rough for round ligament pain mini is definitely not so mini now those tiny fists & feet pack a punch when she feels like it 😂 only 10days till we see mini again! Hopefully she’s not grown a penis since last time lol

Big News, Big Journey | Mini Moore Diaries

Well a couple of months ago I had plans to start a series on here about my trying to conceive journey which if you follow me on instagram @Theringsandthings you will already know about. I planned to start this in on my next cycle Cycle 3 which would have be due to start on 21st October but as you can see that didn’t happen and here’s the reason why…..

I’m pregnant! I still can’t believe it! We conceived in our 2nd cycle of trying I had and extremely faint line at 9dpo (days past ovulation) to the point where I was convinced it was an evap, indent line or my imagination.

12070971_413074255559008_1641262208_n

14/10/15 – 9dpo – the line is barely visiable on camera

I then took another test at 10 dpo, 4 to be exact lol and got very faint lines on all my tests which were still barely visible but they I didn’t think all the tests would have such similar evap lines….

12070904_425567337650219_1076738816_n

15/10/15 – 10dpo – 2 morning tests, 2 afternoon tests all with very faint lines.

I then decided to just go for it and try one of the Clear blue digital tests with weeks estimator so I could get a clear yes or no and to my surprise I got this!

12104976_1485244771779299_143437926_n

Yep I’m pregnant! I still can’t believe it I can’t believe how lucky we were to conceive in our 2nd cycle. I’ve currently taken around 1 million pregnancy test since this point lol. I’m still very early and most apps place me between 4weeks 5days or 5weeks, which would make my due date between June 25th and 27th. I’ll be going with 5 weeks today until I can get confirmation from the drs or midwife

 I have my first midwife appointment on the 27/10/15 for my booking appointment and to get all my tests and bloodwork done. We still haven’t told our families yet but all being well we plan on booking an early reassurance scan on my birthday which is on November 18th as I should be around 8weeks and telling them all that night.

We are so pleased and excited but also extremely nervous as we know how high the chance of miscarriage is at this point. from this point on I will be doing weekly bump dates and pregnancy vlogs called Mini Moore Diaries talking about symptoms, feelings. appointments etc which if you follow me on youtube you’ll have seen I’ve already started vlogging my journey.

I hope you’ll stick around and join my journey hopefully there’s lots of exciting things to come.
