Yes week 27 has finally ended for me and to be fair after last week it was a nice calm and relaxed one.
How am I feeling?
On top of the world!
Well my appetite is back and I am finding I am able to eat most things I used to now although that smell of garlic sauce is now really getting up my nose . My senses seem to have lightened immensely this time around and I am not sure it is a good thing when something you really enjoyed smells terrible now.
With the water infection all cleared up now , I feel so much better and by the feeling of it , so does our little bundle as he seems to be moving a lot more than usual.
One of the new things I am not enjoying is the fact that I am getting what is sometimes known as spider crawl , which is basically the feeling in your legs of cramp or bad circulation and I am constantly feeling the need to over stretch my legs which results in pulling a muscle (not that I have many) or trapping a nerve.
I am so pleased that I am on my final trimester, the final run to our surprise baby arriving and I still have to admit that it feels like the quickest pregnancy out of all my previous ones.
How is baby?
I am not due any checks until next week when I go to see the midwife so I am unsure on how our baby is growing exactly but I do know he is still stretching , wriggling and growing in there due to the size of my tummy expanding and also the non stop jitters my stomach does.
I now have no need for belly dancing lessons, this little lad has it all covered.
It is strange to think that our little baby could be sucking his thumb and although not ideal, if our baby was to arrive now , he would have a great chance of survival as his lungs are functioning but would also still need some help from special care.
I am hoping our son keeps his butt warm in there until the time is right.
It is said that baby is around the size of a cauliflower head now and I have to admit it definitely feels like it.
Our babies brain is finalising its final tunings and his taste buds are also at high alert so when I eat a curry or something bitter or sweet, he is going to more than likely taste it too.
