Still Struggling Through The Sickness & Gender Reveal | Pregnancy

Hey guys, heres a quick update while I’m stuck in bed poorly again;

I will start with the exciting news first of all. If you follow me on instagram (@drainedbeauty) you will already know this but me and Scott are expecting a little girl! I’m so excited, I love little girl clothes and as soon as we found out we went shopping and got some cute little outfits from Primark. We ended up spending £100, but you get so much more for your money in Primark than anywhere else that I looked.

So yeah, thats good news, I would of been happier with either but I can’t wait to meet me little lady who is such a fidget bum. If you look in the picture above you can see a hand and foot in front of her face. She goes in such weird positions. So much in fact I have to go back for another scan next week because they couldn’t do all of the checks they wanted to do on her heart and spine and all that.

Anyway onto the more crappy side of pregnancy. I do love being pregnant and feeling her move, don’t get me wrong. However I have been so ill during this pregnancy and it doesn’t seem to be letting up. I went to see the doctor on Friday who seemed concerned about some of my symptoms. I’m still getting that horrible rash from throwing up and struggling most days to keep food down. Fingers crossed today I’ve managed to eat some toast and it’s staying in my belly, woo hoo!

The doctor wanted me to go for a blood test to check the clotting factors but wanted the results that day, so I went to the walk in centre and set myself up for a 2 hour wait. She then called me as I was getting closer to being called for the blood test and wanted me to go up to the hospital and get checked out as a matter of urgency. Worried I went straight up there. After being messed about and being sent to 3 different departments and being told I would be waiting up to 7 hours, I had enough. I spoke to the nurse and gave her my symptoms and she said I would be fine to just get a blood test on Monday, so I went home.

I haven’t been able to eat much this weekend as it seems to come straight back up but when I’m not being sick I have a constant nausea feeling. So I’ve been signed off work and told to rest up. Which to be honest I feel I really need. Sorry for blabbing on so much, I will update you soon!
