Pregnancy Blog :: Week 20

And so, I've made it to the half way mark and its all a countdown from here. Exciting.

I have my 20 week scan next week and I think we've come to the conclusion that we won't find out the sex of the baby - let's keep it a surprise.

This week I've been feeling shattered but I can't totally put that down to pregnancy because Mr. B. is shattered too. Good job we have a week's holiday coming up.

This week I have also been stocking up on non-alcoholic beverages for the Christmas break (we're hosting a big party here in a couple of weeks). When I'm not pregnant I like to indulge in a glass or two of wine but at present I'm trying to limit my alcohol intake to special treats. I will admit that I'm allowing myself a more frequent glass of wine during this pregnancy than the first but I'm still trying to make sure I don't take any silly risks.

Having spent my summer consuming Appletise and Shloer, I'm now on the lookout for something a little more wintery so I was intruiged when asked to try out the new bottlegreen 'Enjoy Hot' range. When I was ill the other day my saturday night was made that little less stressful with a warm mug of Cox's Apple & Plum cordial made up with hot water. I've also found a good mulled-wine replacement in their Spiced Berry Cordial; I found the flavour a bit too in-your-face for an every day evening drink but then I feel the same way about mulled wine - once or twice a year is just fine for me!
