Ok, I haven't done this in a while, its been a little chaotic here as we've had to move to temporary accommodation the pregnancy has just flown a little.
I finally finish work tomorrow although my maternity leave doesn't officially begin until the end of June, I cannot wait for the break. Jack will finish nursery this week also so it will be nice to spend some quality time with just him.
As for the pregnancy, it has gone a little quickly with all the stress of moving from our home, to temporarily living with my Nan until our house is built June/July time. Baby is having lots of episodes of being crazy and then quiet but all seems well. Baby had hiccups for the first time this last week also, well maybe not the first but the first I've felt and it was lovely - I never experienced it with Jack.
From my last update my bump has really grown, well it has been over a month ago.
This week baby is measuring around 44cm and weighing in around 3-4lbs. In the last few weeks baby is likely to put on around half a lb a week. Babies bones are continuing to harden, except for the skull which remains soft and pliable to be born safely. Babies immune system is now fully developed with the antibodies they need.
