Is it just me or does my bump look like it may have dropped a little?
It certainly looks and feels like it to me but maybe that is just me hoping for little man to have got into place now.
How am I feeling?
The weeks seem to be getting quicker each time now , I am sure it always felt like it dragged the last few weeks , but for me it just keeps speeding up and I actually feel I am losing track of the weeks now.
I know it not just me, I have everyone telling me it seemed like only yesterday that I announced we were expecting and I totally agree.
I feel great this week, so much in fact I spent the whole weekend out and walking around Sundown on Saturday and Whitby on Sunday .
Don't think I have spent as much time on my feet through this whole pregnancy as I have this weekend but I had great fun and really enjoyed myself and the sunshine and fresh air .
I do not feel overly huge at the moment, in fact I think I am kinda getting used to it so much that I sometimes forget its there until baby moves, kicks or I try to get up of the sofa or bed.
Getting out of bed has never felt so hard , rolling out or slowly falling out is the new style for me and I am sure my husband has had a few hurting shoulders lately as I try to use him as a lean post getting up of the sofa.
My husband is the type of person who always says I am not heavy even if he does turn a shade of purple sometimes, but I seem to have put on that extra weight pretty quickly over the last couple of weeks and see him quincing now as I try to sit on his knee for a cuddle .
He so deserves every piece of the pain , after all he helped me get this heavy and I have no sympathy for his minor pain.
So the belly is feeling lower , my bump feels heavier, and I feel great and full of energy the only thing I can say that I am not enjoying this week are those tightenings.
My oh my, they bring it all back instantly don't they?.
As soon as I feel my tummy tightening , I stop instantly in sheer panic , it is usually at a time where I have the dogs playing on my bed or my son bouncing next to me all over his dad so I just literally freeze in wonder of what is going to happen next.
Withing a minute or two it slowly passes and I relax a little, hubby looks and sees me holding my tummy with a sheer gazing daze in my eye and asks if I am ok and I nod to give the heads up we all ok and defintiely are not ready yet .
I definitely need to pick up breast pads this week, I have put it off for the past few months and been ok with padded bras but now I feel I need them more as the supply is building up and waking up with sticky patches of that breast milk allover my top or bed is not exactly the feeling I wish to have everyday . May as well get used to it though, especially if I am hoping to breastfeed this time around .
How is baby?
Well our little boy is obviously enjoying his time in there , I feel he is wriggling about and enjoying being able to move at the moment before the space in there runs out for him .
I can not wait until I get to hear his heart beat on the 8th , it is always those visits that I feel I need for reassurance all is ok.
Considering he is about the size of a pineapple , he feels a lot heavier . He seems to be pressing downwards more this week , making walking a little faster a little harder than before.
So there is not much to say this week except I feel like he may have moved into place and I have had a lovely week walking but our little boy is still happy in there and I hope he stays there for a few more weeks as I am still not ready for the pain that is to come. I know these tightenings are going to keep me on my toes in the meantime .
