Pregnancy Blog :: Week 21

Last weekend I went to the Tots100 Christmas Party at Butlins in my gorgeous Isabella Oliver dress and felt fantastic. The bump was REALLY obvious and I swear my belly has grown noticably even since last Saturday.

I have been slathering on moisturisers and most recently the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil in an attempt to prevent stretch marks on my ever-bulging belly. it seems to be a really fast-drying oil (which is great because I have little patience to wait for it to dry) but the best thing about it is the smell of the cocoa butter - I feel like a walking chocolate shop. Very festive. So far so good, but I guess the ultimate test is to see whether I can come out of this pregnancy with no new stretch marks.

On Tuesday we went for the 20 week scan. It all went really well - I can't believe how much the image quality of the ultrasound scan has improved in just two and a bit years. We could even see the tiny valves in the heart opening and closing.

We didn't find out the sex of the baby, but I have my suspicions (that I won't share here as I haven't even told Mr. B).

I also had an MRSA test - I'd totally forgotten that. I weird cotton bud thing you have to rub around your nose and then another around your crotch. Lovely! Plus, I got given my first Bounty pack. There was a teenie tiny size 1 Pampers nappy in the bag and I simply can't believe how small it is... Lara was NEVER that small, surely?
