Piglet Pregnancy – Week 20

It’s funny to think that I am now past the half way point with my Piglet pregnancy.  In some ways it feels like forever since we found out that we were expecting on Easter Sunday and yet in another it feels like it is going too fast and it will all be over before I know it.

Piglet

  • Piglet is now as big as a banana
  • The taste buds have started to work
  • Piglet is now gulping down several ounces of amniotic fluid each day (that’s significantly more than before)

Piglet Pregnancy - Week 20

Feeling

The past couple of weeks I have been struggling with feeling shaky, breathless and general exhaustion.  My body will let me do so much before it tells me that I need to slow down and rest.  This has been difficult for me as all the books etc tell you to keep active yet my body is screaming stop!

Eating

I still haven’t found meals that I am interested in eating.  Obviously I need to eat and I have been but it’s more about eating because I have to rather than ‘oh I really fancy XYZ for tea’.  I’m still munching on my crunchy nut corn flakes which is my default go to food at the moment along with bananas.

Appointments

I went to see my GP last week for the results of my blood tests, which all came back within normal range.  My GP still isn’t happy with me working on my feet on a hot ward so has signed me off sick for a further 4 weeks and told me to rest as much as possible.

Last week also seen us have our 20 weeks scan.  We had planned to take Roo and Tigger with us but as the day grew closer we decided against it just in case there were any issues (family history of hole in the heart).  Luckily Piglet decided to play ball this time round and the sonographer was able to see everything she needed and take the necessary measurements.  We also managed to find out the gender…

    I remember the time flying by from my 20 week scan until about 36 weeks when I was so ready both times. That last four weeks took forever 😉

    Make sure you do what the Dr says and rest xx
