Pregnancy Diary Week 13
Pregnancy Diary Week 13 – Week beginning 26th November. I feel like everything is a bit much of the same at the moment.
I’m struggling with tiredness and sickness which seems to be all I can think about. I wish that as a human I could function without the need for food. I could really do with some energy at the moment as each day is turning into a clock watching game.

Yey I’ve only got another 27 weeks of the repetition of the above………As you can see my mood is just chipper at the moment.
The baby is about the size of an egg now, weighing around 23g and measuring about 7.4cm.
