Today I am 33 weeks + 2 days pregnant and have 47 days to go.
Both myself and baby really appreciated the Christmas break, I had the most ridiculous lie-ins ever (I’m talking 11:30 – 12!) and didn’t feel guilty about it at all because I’m pregnant and deserve the rest! I also wasn’t sick once during the break, but was sick on my first (and only day during week 32) day back. I’ve decided that baby is lazy like myself and Spencer and doesn’t appreciate being woken up by the alarm and rushing around. The break has got me really looking forward to starting my maternity leave, I only have four weeks left in work which is very exciting. Most people were down in the dumps returning after the lovely break, I on the other hand am bouncing around smiling and counting down!
Strangely I haven’t been getting up to go to the toilet in the night like I usually do once a night, I’m not sure if this is because I haven’t been drinking as much while I’ve been off work (in work I tend to get dehydrated quickly due to the heat and constantly talking on the phone) or if it is because baby has changed positions. I really hope that it isn’t due to a change of positions as baby has always been in the perfect position so far in my pregnancy. I have a midwife appointment Wednesday so will know then if baby has moved.
Baby’s kicks are now getting to feel uncomfortable, I guess this is because the baby is bigger and stronger which is obviously a good thing, just makes sleeping a little more of a pain than it already was!
I put on another pound which brings my total weight gain to 2 pounds.
Spencer and I on New Year’s Eve. I love my selfie stick.
I won £10 on a scratchcard that my auntie gave me for Christmas You can almost tell what I’ve stencilled on to my hot chocolate, not bad for a first attempt Kitty being Queen of the Castle My baby scrapbook has arrived and is something that I will get started on soon (or may just leave until my maternity leave kicks in).
My bump at 33 weeks Food at our local Table Table I picked up a bargain Yankee Candle in the sales, it smells amazing.
