29 weeks today! This week have mainly been perfecting my waddle and going to bed before 9.30 (today is an exception as Glee is on!) I've been feeling a lot heavier and have a few back twinges but nothing to complain about too much (although you know I like to!) also here in the UK we are having a indian summer and its 28 degrees and its making me hot and bothered and making my hair go frizzy!
I have a bit of holiday to use up before I go on leave so I'm taking a week off next week which i cant wait for! After that I only have about 4 weeks to go before my maternity starts, its crazy how things are now starting to happen. When you first find out you are pregnant 9 months (or 40 weeks) seems so far away and now I feel like the end is in sight! I wonder if I will miss being pregnant when this baby comes, the first 17 weeks of sickness and further three weeks or so of migraines it feels like hell. I had always looked forward to being pregnant and thought it would be something i would enjoy every minute of...not so. But after 20 weeks i can say i started to feel great and really enjoy it, yes i complain about being a little tired or days when i have bad leg cramps but other than that i am loving it. Feeling your baby move is the most amazing and comforting feeling ever, i may have wished a few times that Tom could have taken my sickness from me but i'm sure i wouldn't want to give up this feeling :)
A friend of mine told me the other day that she was 'born to be a mum as pregnancy came so naturally to her', which kinda annoyed me a little. I get what she was trying to say and I'm glad she loved it so much but does that mean mums who lose babies or suffer from morning sickness so bad they are hospitalised are not 'born to be mums'? I think the statement was a little insensitive, another friend of mine is 33 weeks pregnant and still being sick twice a day having a terrible time and i'm sure she will make just as a fantastic mum! ok rant over but if i cant rant on my own blog where can I? ;)
Well I hope all you people in the UK are enjoying the late summer! I for one can not wait for proper autumn, woolly tights, boots and coats!
p.s umm can you see how my tummy button has almost popped out!?
