My bump is growing by the day and according to my pregnancy app she is 39cms long and weighs approxiamtely 1.3kg. I’m getting lots of movement and it’s such a warm fuzzy feeling. It’s a sign she is healthy and strong and I love every single one of them even if a majority of them are at bedtime.
Thankfully there hasn’t been many sleep interuptions for toilet trips through the night, I’m assuming that’s because I’m so tired entertaining the two kids during the day. Although my pelvic floor is still in shatters. I’m finding it difficult and exhausting chasing after the two of them and we’ve been spending our days in the park or on the beach with all the lovely weather that arrived so they are practically entertaining themselves outdoors.
Just as I thought the third trimester was treating me kind the nausea and inability to keep food down in the evenings has slowly crept back in. After a few voilent vomit explosions I’ve burst blood vessels on my face, neck and chest, and the acid has burnt my throat, leaving me on a liquid diet, so I’ll be sipping soup and water for the next few days. I’ve also got a heat rash on my arms this week but it’s nothing new in pregnancy because every summer I’ve been pregnant I’m covered in one.
I’ve pretty much cried everyday for the past week, sometimes I haven’t a clue what I’m crying for but sure that’s pregnancy and hormones and there’s pretty much nothing I can do about it.
I’m preparing myself for the worlds hairiest baby at present. I’m milling the Rennie. Baby may need a full body wax if the sayings are true. The heartburn is a killer. I’ve had a few Braxton Hicks this week also, at one point I had convinced myself she was on her way. Kayla gets very excited and is left devastated every time.
I recieved a few bags of hand-me-downs during the week with lots of beautiful and practically new clothes some still with tags so it gave me the push to start getting prepared for our pending arrival. I’m on the hunt for a second hand double buggy at the moment. I’ve had some great recommendations for an Out and About, Uppababy Vista and a Bugaboo but we couldn’t possibly afford them new right now so I’m creeping on Facebook selling pages, Adverts and Donedeal daily.
I’m getting very excited now and really looking forward to meeting our baby girl. I’m constantly day-dreaming and wondering who she will look like, will she have big brown eyes like Frankie or blue ‘I didn’t do it’ eyes like Kayla. I suppose I don’t have long to wait now, I just hope she sits tight and doesn’t arrive early like both her siblings.
