Today I am 34 weeks + 1 day pregnant and have 41 days to go!
I’m back to work and back to being sick most mornings, baby really does not like forced wake ups. I only have three weeks left in work and have used holidays so that the next two weeks are four day weeks and the third week is a three day week, so excited now and things are starting to feel very real.
I’m still not getting up to go to the toilet in the night which is absolutely brilliant, though I am busting by the time I wake up!
I noticed the other day a little bit of leakage from my breasts. Without wanting to sound disgusting both myself and Spencer noticed a funny smell coming from me, like gone off milk. Neither of us could work out why I smelt, I decided to have a shower and when I took my bra off the smell was worse, on examination I discovered white around both of my nipples. I don’t seem to have had it since, or if I have it hasn’t been as smelly as we haven’t noticed it again. This got me super excited as I am hoping to breastfeed so leaking milk already has got to be a good sign.
My feet are starting to ache and swell a lot more now, if I’m on my feet for any long period of time they start throbbing and I get super tired. I don’t know how people who are on their feet all day in their jobs cope during pregnancy!
I haven’t put on any weight this week, my total pregnancy weight gain so far remains at 2lbs.
The Nursery is coming along nicely, we put our decal up yesterday and are so pleased with how it turned out. The decal came from eBay and took ages to apply, my feet were killing afterwards! I’ll be posting about the decal and the rest of the nursery when we semi-finish it all (we won’t be finishing it fully until after baby is born as we will be adding pink or blue touches depending on the sex of baby).
We went to Cardiff today where we did something pretty exciting which was pick up our pram! We opted for the Baby Jogger City Mini from John Lewis, after a lot of trouble ordering on-line we went to the shop to purchase it. The on-line service really let us down, the order was cancelled four times in total due to an IT problem, the main issue is that the money is on hold as a pending transaction in our bank account, as you can imagine we are currently down by quite a bit of money! We have sent a complaint email and have been updated to say that they are investigating the problem and that the refunds team will get back to us once they have looked into it.
While in Cardiff we went to Crepeaffaire for the first time which was delicious, I’ll be writing a blog post about it shortly. My bump today at 34 weeks + 1 day, I seem to have slowed down on the growth front. I love our new cats in hats calendar.
