17+3 weeks

TMI alert: I am still retching morning and evening, and still a bit fussy about some food and drinks, but on the whole feeling loads better now. Have been back at work for 2 knackering weeks.

G has given up her nap most days - think I mentioned that before - and I'm not sleeping well (for about 2.5 years now?) so pretty tired but coping somehow. Going to be hard when I get bigger so trying to keep a bit of stamina in reserve.

Got a sizeable bump now. Some of it made from cake from my last maternity leave, some of it made from this pregnancy. Feel a bit of a fatty.

G turns 2 years old on 25th Feb, we have our NHS anomaly scan on 28th Feb, then private cardiac scan on 3rd March, so that'll be a busy week. Really hoping the scans will bring us reassurance rather than throw up further issues. Been using the doppler every night to listen to the baby's heartbeat and hearing some movements which is helping me to stay a bit more chilled. Last night the movements sounded like Rolf Harris's wobble board. Imagined a mini Rolf in there practising. Hope one of those doesn't actually come out of me; I may never recover.

Sorry to hear you are having it tough but you sound like you have realised the need to chill too. Good luck with the scans and happy birthday to the little one.
