Week by week
Mum, it’s me!
Hi mum! Down here, in your belly ... it’s me! Your gorgeous little baby. Well, I’m the size of a peach actually. I’ll be sharing these updates with you every week, right here from in your tum! Can you believe I now measure about 8cm and weigh around 23 grams? You probably got to see me last week at our 12-week scan - we’re officially into our second trimester together now. You might have noticed that my body’s growing super fast - it’s even starting to catch up to my big head - yay! And if by chance I’m a girl (not telling), my ovaries have already got around two million eggs in them. It’s been an exciting couple of months mum, and I can’t wait to share the rest with you!
How are you?
There’s no question that your baby will have a huge effect on your relationship. There’ll be changes that affect your sex life, responsibilities, finances - the list goes on. So this week, have a date night with your partner. Set aside some quality time to spend together when you’re both relaxed and share any problems or worries you might be having. It’s the perfect excuse to feel the love again and help prevent any niggles turning into arguments.
As for you, you might have noticed your breasts feeling a little lumpy. Don’t worry, this just happens as your mammary glands and ducts start to prepare to make breast milk, and you may even notice the thin yellowish substance known as colostrum. The good news is that when you’re breast feeding, size doesn’t matter! Even the tiniest of breasts should still be able to get the job done.
