7 weeks pregnant

Woohoo! I was 7 weeks pregnant yesterday so only 33 left to go.

I still don't feel sick in the slightest, but I feel hungry ALL THE TIME. I also feel like I want to cry all the time. The tiniest thing stresses me out and the silliest things on the tv have me sobbing into a cushion. My mood is totally changeable. James is being so so understanding though and even Ollie seems to have realised that it would be best to be on good behaviour for the moment because he is being a little star for me.

I am surprised that I am already getting a slight bump. I did show very early with Ollie so I guess I shouldn't really be surprised because you show faster with your second. I have already ordered myself a pair of maternity jeans and 2 maternity tops.

I spoke to my midwife today and have asked to change hospitals. The one I am currently booked in with do not tell you the sex and we could not afford a gender scan which costs £240!! I HAVE to know the sex. I am like that. I definitely can not go for 40 weeks not knowing. I found out with Ollie and feel like it made birth that little bit easier because I already knew what I was getting. I am now booked into The Royal Hospital. Apparently it is amazing and friends who have given birth there said they recommend it. Plus, they have private rooms which you can pay for.


  1. The right hospital makes all the difference! Glad you got one you like. And I couldn't wait 40 weeks to know the gender either, so I'm with ya!

  2. I'm excited to read about your journey! Do you want another boy, or a girl? Well, which ever, I hope it comes out healthy and happy :)

  3. Aaaw, congrats!! Your bump picture is adorable! Hubby and I have baby fever like crazy, but we're waiting until next summer/fall to start TTC.

    And I completely agree, I would HAVE to know the sex of the baby as well... else I would drive myself crazy with decorating and clothing options, LOL.

    Best wishes for a happy, healthy pregnancy!

    Oh, BTW, Happy SITS Sharefest Saturday!! :)


  4. Congratulations on your pregnancy!! You are in great shape btw! I totally agree - I would want to know the baby's sex as well. Great blog, and thanks for stopping by mine! Happy SITS saturday sharefest!

  5. congratulations!! what a cute little bump! i remember crying at any sappy t.v. commercial that was on!! lol hope you have a happy and healthy journey!

  6. Being comfortable with the hospital is so important if you have a choice. Here on the island we have only one hospital. Enjoy the new one.

  7. Hopped over from SITS. Congrats on your beautiful bump! BTW- love, love, love the 101 things in your sidebar. i may have to steal your idea!

  8. Congrats!

    I couldn't' go without know what my babies were either.

  9. Congrats on your pregnancy!

    Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!


  10. Congratulations! I hope all goes smoothly and that you get the care you want and deserve!

  11. Congrats! I didn't want to know what either of mine were when I was pregnant. Maybe I'm showing my age, but when I was growing up, not knowing whether you had a boy or girl until The Day was part of the experience of pregnancy and childbirth, and I felt like knowing ahead of time would spoil the surprise. Kind of like peeking at your Christmas gifts :) I guess it's common (and reliable!) enough now that most people feel that "Christmas" is *supposed* to happen before The Day, and that this *is * their surprise!

    Best of luck to you, and thanks for stopping by my blog :)
