33 Weeks Pregnant | Pregnancy Diary

6th December 2022

33 weeks pregnant + 6 days Stretch marks? Still none! Sleep? Up and down. I’ve started taking naps throughout the day without the worry of it impacting getting to sleep at night. If I have a bad night sleep, or no sleep, by taking no naps in the day, then what harm will an actual […]

32 Weeks Pregnant | Pregnancy Diary

29th November 2022

32 weeks pregnant + 6 days Stretch marks? Still none! Sleep? Terrible still. I had a couple mornings where I was up from 3am just sat downstairs either scrolling through Instagram, doing some crosswords, eating a very early breakfast, or just trying to fall asleep on the sofa to no avail. Best moment this week? […]

29 Weeks Pregnant | Pregnancy Diary

8th November 2022

29 weeks pregnant + 6 days Stretch marks? Nope, still nothing. Sleep? Terrible. I have good and bad nights where getting to sleep can either be a breeze, or take 2+ hours. She’s become more active now and this means I’m woken up by her movements around 2-3am every morning. On Friday night I gave […]

28 Weeks Pregnant | Pregnancy Diary

1st November 2022

28 weeks pregnant + 6 days Stretch marks? Still no sign of them. Although, my husband pointed out “a line” and it didn’t half make me panic (I don’t even know why, as it’s really not that big of a deal, it’s natural), but turns out it was just a mark left from the seam […]
