The Pregnancy Diaries: 21 Weeks

pregnancy diary 21 weeks

Oooh, where have I been? Naughty naughty diary writer! I must be feeling better, as I’ve stopped writing down all of my moans and gripes. I’m only back to tell you all about my stomach issues… I’ve had such BAD runs (the D-word – can never spell it anyway) and pains so horrible that they almost feel like labour pains. I’ve recorded a whole Youtube video about it here, if you want more detail. (Go on, you know you want to.)

I’m quite enjoying reading the diary entries from my last pregnancy, now that I’ve caught up a bit – if you’re interested, then I’ve linked to them below. Look at my neat little bump I had at 20 weeks last time – I was definitely showing, but it was nothing like the giant egg I have sticking out at the front this time! Behold:

Actually, the picture above was at 18 or 19 weeks, I think… I was in Paris with Darphin and I’m pretty sure that was a week or so before my 20 week scan. Which was all fine, by the way – tip-top. I had to go on my own because my husband suddenly got a job in shooting Gary Barlow (with a camera, he’s not a hit-man!), but the lady who did the scan was so businesslike and quick anyway that it felt more like having a medical check-up than anything too emotional. Though I still shed a tear. As you do. Always my left eye, for some reason…

    Hey Ruth, your slightly bigger bump could just be due to your stomach muscles being looser from the first pregnancy. I had a big baby first time, then a slightly smaller baby for my second, although I felt huge second time round it was just my weak stomach muscles making me look bigger. My stomach muscles are still slightly separated now six years later. xx

    I find a good but bit gross mnemonic for diarrhoea is Doesn’t It Always Run Really Horribly Over Each Ankle if that helps for further runny bum reports! Really enjoying reading your pregnancy diaries x
