Pregnancy Diary – Week 12

Pregnancy Diary Week 12

Pregnancy Diary Week 12 – Week starting 19th November. It’s time to come clean to work this week and I’m dreading it. It’s not exactly the kind of thing that you want to be telling your new boss.

Pregnancy Diary Week 12

Monday morning and I’ve had no sleep worrying about how my bosses are going to take the news. Chris thinks I’m just being silly and it’s just one of those things but I’m a bag of nerves.

I told one of my colleagues who thought it was hilarious that I was so nervous. I decided to take the bull by the horns and get it done as soon as possible. In I went and just blurted it out hoping for the best. The reaction that I got was unexpected. They were really pleased for me with much squealing and congratulations. Ok I got that situation totally wrong. What a relief.

I’m not sure what I thought was going to happen………

With family and work ticked it was time to shout from the rooftops.


The baby is the size of a fig, measures 5.4cm and weighs around 14g. Their eyes remain shut at the moment but they are moving around a lot at this stage. Hmm the baby can now wee into the surrounding amniotic fluid and the intestines are now developing.

Cooking is a no. Poor Chris has been cooking all the meals so I can just heat them up which is adding to his workload. The fridge smells of food so Chris has tried to counteract this by putting used coffee grounds in a bowl in the fridge. It DOES NOT WORK!

I’ve been feeling bad as I’m getting home from work and have allowed Isabelle as much screen time as she wants so that I can have a bit of a rest. She thinks this is great.

I wanted to do a bit of a social media announcement but had no idea (or energy) to think of anything.

How did you announce your pregnancy to the world?
