Pregnancy Update

30 weeks, <a href=pregnancy 29 years” src=”http://farm1.static.flickr.com/180/371653517_b4f0207ab3.jpg” />

I’m at 33 weeks out of 40 now, treat and I haven’t shared very much about my experience as yet – so here are some of the highs and lows…

Highs:

Being kicked and tickled by a very wriggly person indeed – its happening as I type, this just above my tummy button!

Hearing the heartbeat and going for scans.

Anticipating meeting the little one for the first time – I can’t wait!!!

Free stuff – the Boots club is the best! They send you vouchers all the time! Today I got foundation from No 7, a changing bag, a baby bathwash, wipes and all I had to do was buy a bag of nappies.

Window shopping for cute stuff!

Choosing names – I must have looked at thousands though!

Maternity leave starting in three weeks – wey hey!

Generous lovely people being nice to you!

Lows:

People going ‘You’re tiny, aren’t you?’ like I’m starving the infant or something. I’m starting to get really annoyed. I don’t go up to people and say, ‘You’re so wrinkly/smelly/sweaty’ etc. I can’t help it, okay?

Physical drawbacks – mildly irritating nosebleeds, backache, cramp and acid reflux, sometimes causing sleep deprivation. Not as bad as the four months of fairly relentless nausea, however. SOOO glad that’s over.
General grogginess, losing your memory and the ability to think. Depending on who you listen to, you may or may not get this back.

Trying to find nice cheap clothes that don’t fall down or bobble.

None of the above really detract from the loveliness much – you seem to get a kind of constant calm endorphine that overrides it all.

    I found out yesterday that it is really true that you get endorphines that make you happy and that actually this is what makes you forgetful too! Then they leave on the third day after birth and that’s the day you shouldn’t have visitors coz the baby blues hit and you weep all the time. So come on day 2!
