Another 2 weeks have flied by, I can’t believe I’m nearly at the end of the second trimester already. For the past 2 weeks, Honey Nut’s kicks and punches have been incredibly strong, my arm moves if I rest it on my bump, and you can see my tummy move if you really look!
I said to my husband, “I don’t remember Tyler kicking like this!” but then I checked my old pregnancy diary and oh yeah, there it is written in Week 25, how he was kicking quite intensely now and towards my bladder – uncomfortable! So Honey Nut is pretty much like her brother.
I bought some Bio-Oil in Week 25 which I’ve been rubbing over the bump and my sides each day, as one night I saw some silvers of stretchmarks – nooooo. Luckily they have since disappeared, so I think I got there in time!
I’ve been feeling fine healthwise, not too tired, though I have needed a few daytime naps in Week 26. Thankfully Tyler is an angel and just plays with his toys while I have a little nap – you know those naps where you’re not in a deep sleep so I can still hear him. He’s such a sweetheart, I feel he’s being really caring about me.
We visited a friend last week who has a 3 month old boy, and since then I have noticed him asking more about Honey Nut. We look at my tummy waiting for Honey Nut to move, and if she doesn’t, he goes ‘Honey Nut is sleeping!’ And at playgroup he stood by a baby watching him, being really interested. So I think he now realises that Honey Nut is a baby – maybe seeing my friend’s baby helped him understand.
I’ve brought most of Tyler’s baby clothes out of storage and having been washing them and sorting into ones to keep for Honey Nut and ones to give to my friends. I love it, hanging the little clothes on the airer brought back memories! I’ve also been buying new clothes from the Next Sale and from Choice, as I love to get a bargain.
There’s really nothing much else to update you on, apart from the bump seeming massive now. According to the Babycentre app, at Week 26 Honey Nut is the size of a red cabbage and can hear now. Maybe that’s why she moves so much. She’ll probably love Tyler so much, as his voice must be the one she hears the most – all that babbling about trains and vehicles!
Tomorrow I’ll be 27 weeks and in the last week of the second trimester – exciting 😀
