Pregnancy Diary: Baby 12 in 2012 – Week 17



Well, 17 weeks yesterday actually but I can’t be bothered with adding the “+1” to the title.

I’m feeling good.

In fact, I’m not actually feeling anything which can be a worry in itself.  It’s the usual second trimester rollercoaster.  I am past the sickness and nausea which, although not very nice to put up with during the first trimester I actually hold onto as a sign of reassurance that all is well and as it should be.  The second trimester comes and I’m not actually big enough for my tum to look like a baby-belly rather than just a pudgy-belly, I have no real symptoms and I don’t have any movement yet.

So I worry.

And I do this to myself every single time!

It’s not like I have any reason to worry.  Nothing has happened, there is no sign that anything is wrong but still, I think I’d quite like to feel some movement now please.

I am debating whether to go down the belly pic route again.  I did log the twin pregnancy belly pics weekly but not sure if it’s too late to begin now with this pregnancy.  I am almost halfway through, after all.

Oh, I do have a main concern which isn’t a real concern but was a brief thought in passing actually, was that I should perhaps watch what I eat and eat a little… um… healthier.

Then I popped another onion ring into my mouth.

I’ll work on it.

  1. Glad everything is going well Tania. Try not to worry about movement worry you. Do you know where placenta is lying?

    You should def start logging pics! Never too late!! I only started posting about my preg at 22wks 🙂 xx

      1. I just wondered if it was positioned at the front as that sometimes delays the feeling of movement. You’re also a very busy lady 🙂

          1. Hi Tania,

            I’m 19 weeks with our 10th and I don’t feel much movement at all. But like Rachel mentioned, my placenta IS right on top, where it likes to snuggle in every time, so I don’t begin feeling good movement until week 20. And also as mentioned above, we’re very busy moms…so sometimes just too distracted to notice tiny kicks.

            Glad you’re feeeling well! 🙂 And belly pics are so fun…no matter how far along you are! 🙂
