This week I have developed really itchy skin! There are funny raised lumps on either side of my waist which at first I mistook as stretch marks but apparently stretch marks are not raised. Also, my legs and lower back itch like crazy! Especially in the evening for some reason? In my last pregnancy, I suffered from a pregnancy rash called ‘PAPPS’ which was dreadfully itchy and totally covered my bump, thighs and legs. However, this didn’t appear till my due date and started from my belly button, working its way out and so I’m not sure it’s the same thing this time? If anyone can shed any light on it, that would be great! Maybe it’s just hormones? (you can blame everything on hormones in pregnancy!)
Been feeling good this week. I think I have even felt the baby move! I say ‘think’ because the faint fluttering sensation could quite easily be air bubbles or something. Although, I’m going with it being the baby because it feels familiar – I remember this early fluttering feeling when pregnant with my son. I have felt it about three times now, each time I have been relaxing on the sofa in the evening, watching TV. I think Baby must like ‘Eastenders’!
It’s Christmas day in 3 days and I’m really looking forward to seeing my 2 year old’s face when he opens all of his presents! It’s strange thinking that this will be the last year where there will be just the three of us – next year our family will be complete and it will be the first Christmas as a complete family unit! Very exciting!
I hope everyone has a very merry Christmas!
