This week has been a bit of a non-event really. I haven’t really been feeling any different and there’s not been much change in my body – in general, everything seems to have settled down.
It sounds strange to say it, but I am almost disappointed I’m not feeling very much. At least when you’re sick and off food or even achey, you know something is going on inside you. But week 14 for me, has been quiet. I suppose I should count myself lucky to not be in pain or struggling, but I hope this is normal.
One thing that did happen this week, was the return of the headache…a sort of tension headache, right round the back of my head and neck too. And my neck has been aching (massage booked for next week!). And mid-week, I was sooooo tired, I couldn’t wait to get to bed, then I fell asleep only to wake an hour later and not be able to return to slumber! So at 12.30am I was wide awake, tossing and turning for hours.
At 3.30am I gave up, went downstairs to sit in front of the telly and hopefully dose on the couch. I finally fell asleep at about 6.30am only to be woken by my work alarm an hour later. Needless to say I was a zombie and the headache was still there, so I couldn’t go into work that day. I finally fell into a proper sleep at about 2pm-4pm, then forced myself to get up so as not to disturb the coming night’s sleep.
But apart from that, I’m normal. Is that normal?
I still haven’t put any weight on, have just maintained…I guess that feels weird too (though I was hardly skinny pre-pregnancy so probably can afford to absorb a few lbs). And the next milestone is our 16-week appointment with the midwife, which for us, is actually when I’m 15 wks + 5.
Here’s bump at week 14…
So how did you feel around this time? Is it normal to feel normal?
