Since my last update (28 Weeks) not much has changed really, I had a blood test on the 15.02.17 which was just an ordinary midwife appointment for me with the added blood test, this was to test my immunities and to see if I am anemic, that was just over two weeks ago and my midwife told me no news is good news, I haven’t heard from her so I’m assuming all is good on that front! I did have the most awesome bruise though from said blood test, I don’t usually bruise but for some reason this time I did…
The picture doesn’t really do it justice, it was much better in person…
…That makes me sound like some kind of weirdo that gets a kick out of injuries… I assure you I don’t but, I can appreciate a good bruise from time to time…
Other than this really the last two weeks has been pretty easy, I’m suffering with extreme tiredness again which seems to have returned from the first trimester but that is to be expected, I’m growing an entire human inside of me so yeah that is going to be pretty damn tiring, I just tend to have nice long lie ins after Arran gets up and goes to work!
Next weekend (the 11th) is my Baby Shower! I am pretty excited about it but also kinda anxious too, I’m not the kinda person who likes to be the centre of attention, which is what a baby shower is all about really, I probably would have been better off waiting til little dude was here and then having a party for him, that way then everyone can fuss over him and I can just watch from the sidelines, but ah well, I can do both right!
Some things I have been stressing over this past two weeks:
- Finishing the nursery
- Finding a newborn photographer (this one the most)
- What I will need to pack for the hospital for me
- What I will need to pack for the hospital for him
- Giving birth unexpectedly in the car on the way to the hospital… (don’t ask why)
- Moving out
- Him in general (this goes without saying, I constantly worry if he’s Ok in there, if he’s moving enough etc.)
So yeah, that is my life at the minute! Oh also the heartburn is real! I’ve cut out fizzy pop and spicy food and anything that I know gives me heartburn but my god, I still get it, it is not nice! although I find drinking milk has really helped when I do get it!
Here is an update pic of my bump progress!
If I remember rightly the left pic I took at 16 weeks, top right 19 weeks, middle right 26 weeks and bottom right at 30 weeks! I don’t feel like there has been much change between 26 and 30 weeks though…
Other than the stress, heartburn and tiredness I am enjoying being pregnant, however I am ready and super excited for him to get here! I now have between 7 and 12 weeks til I get to meet him… It’s gone SO fast! I feel like it was only yesterday that we were at the first scan looking at him, trying to guess whether he was gunna be a boy or a girl! though I suppose I will be looking back in 5 years time going “It feels like only yesterday that I was giving birth to him!”
So yeah, that is my latest update, my next one will be at 32 weeks when I will talk about all the fun stuff from the baby shower and share some pics!
If anyone has any suggestions on how to cope with heartburn, I would love to hear them!
