Baby’s little kicks with their own routine are making more of a permanent statement now. You may find at this point that as the kicks get stronger you are being woken up in the middle of the night by little thuds from the inside (I surely am- however they are always welcome, I just love little kicks, don’t you?).
Over in our world, you may start experiencing water retention, I did start at some point, but I also started drinking at least 2 litres of water a day to flush any toxins out and keep the water retention at bay, so that’s a great help. Actually at week 23 it was Ayan’s birthday so we went to London for a long weekend, which was so much fun! However, I did indulge tremendously whilst there (CENTRAL LONDON + CAMDEN STREET FOOD – that’s all I’m saying) and I did end up looking much more ‘blown up’ than usual – this was due to a mixture of extra weight gain + watery retention from the change in diet. I will write a post in the future on tips and tricks that I have to help with the water retention as I know that it can be one of the worst feelings. Until then, keep hydrated and I’ll catch you over in week 24!
