OMG , I have just finished the last of my 29th week of pregnancy and it has just kicked in that there is only the 10 week countdown left to go.
10 weeks left and still I have so much to do , or buy should I say.
We did take the huge leap and finally after weeks of me moaning on to my husband, he ended up taken me to Babies R Us shopping for the one thing I have been worried about most other than giving birth, The Pram!
First of all , I would like to wish the lady who was in the Gateshead store last weekend while we were there on the late Friday night (if she reads this) all the very best.
The poor lady was pregnant and very ill and although the staff at the store done their up most to help her for over an hour ,I couldn't help but notice she was very distressed and upset and rather worried with her children in tow . The last I seen of her was after I offered her a bottle of water and then my husband said she was taken by hospital by ambulance. We just hope she was ok, we were all very worried for her.
If you may remember, I asked for your help regarding pushchairs and prams and after I have spent 4 months looking at every single site , style , colour, variation of where and what pram to buy I went with the one I fell in love with instantly as soon as I saw it originally in the same store back when I first found out we were expecting.
The Cossatto Giggle in Oaker , full set with car seat, carry cot and seat , with raincovers , clips for carseat transformation, cosy toes and also changing bag and changing bag.
Again the manager of the Babies R Us section was fantastic with all of her help after Ii gave her numerous queries regarding prams. It seems that you basically have so many different sections to consider of a pram or pushchair these days and they don't come as a full system like they used to back when I had my last child only 5 years ago . We seen some great deals but even when you looked at those they told you that you then needed to but the carry cots or car seats and even more surprisingly they charged you for what they call ''The colour packs'' which included necessities in my eyes such as the hood, newborn padded seating ,pram apron and harness straps.
Now I can see the great idea been good for those who want to add a little colour to their pram or pushchair but what happened to having these included ?
Never the less , we bought the amazing pram I had been begging my husband for from the beginning and not expecting him to cave in because of the expense , I was pleasantly surprised when I ended up rolling it out of the store with the biggest grin ever seen .
I may do a small review of this once I have been able to give it a try fully later on . I am totally in love with it.
I am not going to lie when I admit I am not ready for little man but know it is still to early but when you get the pushchair it seems that those emotions seem to instantly get hold of you and you really feel the need to get pushing it around because you love it so much.
I still have a long way to go , a whole 10 weeks so instead I have had a small push around the house and to be fair that is the highlight pregnancy wise of this week in regards to events.
How am I doing?
I am feeling fantastic this week. Nothing major except the usual strange feelings like our baby boy moving further down and wriggling around constantly but I have had a slight sickness feeling come back which left me tired for two days.
Luckily my blood results came back from last weeks midwife trip and everything was normal as they put it so for the first pregnancy out of them all , I am in no need of iron tablets as I am doing perfectly fine, over the moon.
My husband puts it down to a change in my habits , bad ones I had before I became pregnant such as healthier diet and especially because I am not drinking and no longer smoke .
I am finding myself drinking lots of milk which I am sure will come in handy for the growing weeks to come for our babies thirsty bones.
I am starting to think it may be a good time to start getting the last bits such as Cloth nappies and clothing for baby in so finding myself addicted to Ebay and online sites.
How is baby?
So I heard that from now to birth our baby boy is going to now double and maybe even triple in size and I know that has to be a sign he is going to be quite some size, I feel large already.
He is already around 17 inches although our last weeks midwife visit measured a little larger for the dates .
He is constantly moving around, I get the distinct feeling he is trying to get into place as the (only way I can describe it sorry) scratching down in the pelvic area feeling is happening quite a lot now , it catches me by surprise and I remember this feeling well from my other pregnancies.
It seems to have been another fast going week this week and I know I have said it all the way through but I hope it slows down and know it is not going to . I feel this is the fastest pregnancy ever and I still do not feel ready yet.
Keep an eye out on my last run of the last 10 weeks , things are going to be getting exciting and I do not want you to miss a thing.
