i've been away for a bit (visiting my parents in norway - had a lovely time!) so here's a little update: i feel huge now, have had to make the move into maternity clothes completely as nothing fits me anymore! i think i'm fairly big for my dates. probably something to do with the fact that my belly has always been big and now baby is pushing everything even more upwards and outwards! i have gained 3kgs so far (about 6 1/2 lbs) at 15+4. anyway i spent sunday packing away 90% of my clothes! my belly still has a "dent" in it round the middle bit which i don't like!! i will take a photo and post it on the belly pic thread sometime this week! think i've been overdoing the fruit and veg...especially the dried apricots - i eat loads of those! all the other pregnant ladies i know are complaining of constipation, but i certainly don't have that problem!! i am not complaining though, think i prefer this to being constipated! i have to go and see a consultant tomorrow (hypertension clinic) as every time they take my BP it's raised. i have a bit of a hospital/doctor phobia though, so every time i go my pulse is racing and i'm really nervous - so they think it might just be that. i certainly hope so - and i can't see a reason why my BP should always be up, as i lost 2 stone last year, got into shape by exercising, and my diet is the healthiest it has ever been. i should be in better shape than ever, so i really hope the BP thing is just because i am nervous every time i go in! i see the midwife on wednesday for the second time. hopefully we will hear baby's heartbeat for the first time! seen it beating twice at the scans, but imagine hearing it will be different! can't wait to feel movements now!!!
