That’s a chainsaw. Every time I sit down to
film there’s a chainsaw, or some other kind of noise. Hi guys, so today is going to be
my 15 and 16 week pregnancy update. It was all going so well with the updates, but last
week when I was due to film my 15 week update my eldest son Fraser had a really bad sickness
bug, and he just needed constant cuddles, and then when he was asleep our building work
was really loud, and I couldn’t have filmed. So, today I’m going to do both weeks in one,
and it hasn’t been too eventful, so you won’t have missed anything. If you do hear any building
work in the background, those of you that follow my channel will know that we’re having
an extra room built for this baby, so it is just been like, non-stop noise.
In my 16th week now and the baby is now the size of either an avocado or a large orange.
My two different pregnancy apps say two different ones, but pretty big. It’s about four, and
a half inches long now, and it’s looking more and more like a baby. It’s ears are in the
right place, it’s using and moving all of its joints, and it’s even breathing in and
out the amniotic fluid, learning all of those, kind of skills. And it can even suck its thumb
now in there, which is amazing. So, it’s sucking and frowning, and smiling
and stuff like that. So, that’s pretty cool. By now as well, it’s body has caught up with
the size of the head. The head was much larger in proportion before, but now the body is
in proportion to the head, so that’s cool. So, exciting news. I have convinced my husband
that it is a good idea to have an early gender scan, and we’re going tomorrow evening. I’m
so excited. We’re going to a private clinic near where we live, and they’re going to hopefully
be able to see, even at this early stage. I’ll be nearly 17 weeks and yeah, I just have
no idea what to expect. Although we’re actually having the scan tomorrow
we have a bit of a gender reveal planned, so we’re going to have the scan tomorrow,
but we’re going to get the midwife to write down what it is in an envelope, so we won’t
actually know what it is for another week or so, because what we’ve decided to do, is
something that we’ve talked about in the past. I heard this story about this woman who, when
she got married she already had two little girls and when she got to the altar, and they
exchanged rings her husband had, had two of the diamonds in her wedding ring changed to
little pink diamonds to represent their children in their wedding ring, and I said when we
have all of our kids I’d love to have three stones in my wedding ring changed to the colors
of our children, to represent them in our marriage and stuff.
So, we’re going to take the envelope with the sex of the baby in it to a jewelers that
we’ve already spoken to, and so they’re going to know before we know what we’re having,
and we’re going to hand over my wedding ring, and they’re going to change three of the stones
for either three blue stones or two blue and one pink stone.
And then we are going to find out by getting the ring back and looking at the ring, and
obviously I will film it so you can see what it is. We’ve had so many comments from people
about, “What if it’s a third boy? Are you going for the girl? If it’s a third boy are
you going to do a Victoria Beckham and have a fourth?” And all of these comments.
This is definitely our last baby, and we think that … Sorry about the building work. We
think that it probably is a boy. I feel so similar to the way that I felt with both of
the other pregnancies and if it is another boy we will absolutely love that. A girl would
be nice, because it would be a different experience, but I kind of think in a way she would be
a little bit outnumbered, whereas a boy would slot in to our family really easily. It is
already … Like, I’m so outnumbered, what’s one more going to do?
So, I think in a way three little blue diamonds would be really beautiful, or if not, a little
pink one would be really cute, so I think it’d just be a nice way to find out.
Obviously I will share it with you as soon as I can, I’m so excited to share it all with
you. Oh, I did a recent Primark haul video, but at the end of that video I also include
some maternity bits that I’ve recently purchased from ASOS and Topshop, so if you wanted to
have a look at those I’ll link the video down below.
Also, symptoms wise this week and last week, I haven’t had too many new symptoms. I’ve
still felt a little bit tired sometimes. I haven’t really been very good at keeping up
my water intake, and I feel like my skin has been a little bit dry or dehydrated from it,
and I know I haven’t had enough water, because if I don’t drink enough water in the morning
by midday I have a really bad headache. It’s just like, your body’s obviously telling you,
“I should have drunk more water than this, and now you’re going to have a really bad
headache.” So, I’ve been trying to keep that up, but
it has been hard. Herbal teas and lemon water again, have been really helping with that.
The tiredness, I’ve definitely been feeling less tired and better in all of those ways.
I think I felt the baby move. I know it’s really early, but I went and had my eyelashes
done the other night and the bed that you lay on is so flat. When we were chatting away
and she was doing my lashes I thought I felt like, a little flutter in my stomach and I
thought, “That must be the baby.” But I haven’t felt anything since, but I’m sure that, that
is coming up very soon, because I felt Fraser and Caleb in my tummy at about 18 weeks. So,
really, it’s not far to go at all. I think that is all that I wanted to tell
you this week, and thank you so much for watching. I can’t wait to show you my gender reveal
and find out what I’m having myself, and yes, I will see you very soon. Bye.
