I felt like I should come and do another update, albeit I dont really have anything new to add! Perhaps a new round up of symptoms:

- nausea, still here, I'm still taking my anti-nausea medication AND still vomiting once or twice a day, or more if i'm tired. I've found lack of sleep makes my morning sickness a million times worse
- exhaustion, pretty self explanatory. I'm sleeping ok, not great but ok. I'm getting up at least twice a night to pee and then it takes a while for me to get comfy before I get back to sleep. I cant sleep on my belly anymore, and its uncomfortable on my back. So side sleeping it is, which is hard to get used to!
- round ligament pain - OUch! It's been here for the last week or so, its really uncomfortable, especially if I move too quick or bend funny. Coughing also makes it hurt. Its kind of reasssuring though as I know it means baby is growing big and strong!
- Belly growth, I guess I can class this as a symptom?! My belly is definately changing shape, I've gained about 4lbs since before I did IUI. So not too bad in total, i guess the sickness is making a difference there. My belly definately looks like i've put on way more than 4lbs! I'm wearing a fair few maternity clothes now, especially trousers, i also ahve a couple of tops and nice dresses

I cant really think of any others. I'm otherwise doing great, i'm very happy right now. I honestly cant wait to be a mummy and a wife. Not too much longer to wait for the latter, 5 weeks today in fact

Next appt is the 16th with the midwife, then the 6th November at the hospital with the consultant and for my 20 week scan
