Pregnancy Patter - 18 Weeks And Loving It

Well, 2 weeks has passed since my last proper update and I have to say things have turned around remarkably in those 2 weeks.

I feel alive!

On the Tuesday of that time I was at my worst when a package arrived from the lovely people at WaterBaby. I took my first drink that day and haven't looked back since, it was literally like I'd been reborn the following day. I even managed to do housework which I hadn't touched in a long while.

It could be a total coincidence but I think not.  I've now run out of WaterBaby and, although I'm still feeling reasonably OK, I do have to say I haven't got as much energy as when I was drinking it. So...I've just ordered a bumper pack with them.  Hope it arrives quickly.  I just need them to start doing some sachets of the drink that you can add to water so I can take them on holiday with me!

In other news, it's just less than 2 weeks until our 20 week scan.  I'm very nervous but also excited.  Matt is still saying he wants to find out the sex but I don't. I've agreed that if he is adamant then I'll go along with his wishes and we'll find out as we didn't with Mini Cheddar.

I've also got all my old maternity clothes out of the loft. I thought I was lucky in that I'm pregnant at exactly the same time of year as I was with MC...then Matt went and booked a big holiday for January! So it's going to be a bit of a scrabble trying to find some very cheap Spring/Summer maternity wear.  We have so much to do over the next 2 months we've had to write a list to keep track of it all. Somewhere in the middle of it we are going up to Edinburgh for 4 nights for our usual Christmas jaunt...I feel like a pregnant Judith Chalmers at the moment.

The only bad thing that has happened in these past 2 weeks is the fact my chin erupted in the worse case of spots I've ever seen...I was just lucky that I was potty training MC so I didn't really need to go out. My skin wasn't even this bad when I was a teenager. My bathroom cabinet is like an advert for Clean & Clear. Lets' hope they are under control soon!

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited to the head office of Mamas & Papas for an exclusive look at their new Spring/Summer range. I have always loved Mamas & Papas but now I'm 'in love' with them completely (and the Mylo!). The staff there are so lovely, knowledgeable and passionate about their products. I'll be writing up a blog post about my trip there very very soon - exciting!

So, enough of my ramblings for now...I'll be back in 2 weeks with news of the scan.

Wow that WaterBaby looks like good stuff, sounds like it was the 'pick you up' you needed :-). So you scan is very close too! how exciting. My husband and I are in agreement to find out so we don't have to compromise luckily. We're both boring and don't like surprises! lol.
The Mama's and Papa's day sounded fab, very jealous! xx

Thanks hun :) You've just had a holiday...and a free one at that! But yes...travel is always a good thing as old Judith would say xx

SAHMlovingit said...

Thanks Wendy.  We so need to organise a meet up before this baby lands xx

SAHMlovingit said...

We didn't find out with MC so I've agreed that we will this time if he really wants to.  The M&P day was superb, I'm so in love with that company now xx

SAHMlovingit said...

They seem to be a lot better this week but I'll check out that St Ives face scrub for sure - thanks :) xx

SAHMlovingit said...

Yes an Italian brand indeed - love them too! 8 days till scan day and counting...xx

SAHMlovingit said...

Have a chat with them on twitter @drinkwaterbaby - they are really lovely and helpful x

Mari said...

so we have to thank Waterbaby that you now have a clean house? right? I'm so glad to hear you perkier and I ADORE Mama and Papas, an Italian brand I think. I'd almost have another baby just to have some of their stuff :)
Keep up the good work and can't wait to hear about the scan, if it was me I'd find out but I'm rubbish at waiting xx

PhotoPuddle said...

Think I'm going to have to find out about this WaterBaby stuff. I am so fed up of feeling rubbish all the time. Being pregnant isn't one of the things I'm very good at!

Glad you're back in the land of the living! Sorry to hear about the spots. Had the same problem. Wholeheartedly reccommend St Ives face scrub for in the shower xxx
