Hump day in my pregnancy week that is – which is the only week which really counts at the moment…!!
A little update from me:
How far along: 36 weeks+4
Sleep: I didn’t have much issues until now but its starting to be a tough one! Its heavy, can’t turn around, its heavy, back and shoulder hurts, its heavy, can only lie on side (normally prefer belly and back), its heavy, waking up during night, its heavy, I’m thirsty, AND again; its heavy!!!!! No the sleep is not good anymore, maybe preparation for baby to come 😕 I do take a mid-day nap when I can – the luxury of maternity leave 🙂
Best moment this week: 1. Husband returned from Cyprus and brought back some traditional souvenirs 😀 He went for some close friends’ beautiful wedding and I been really sad I couldn’t join (to close to birth so not allowed to fly!).
Well nothing is not so bad it’s not good for something else…. 2. I picked up my gift card to Waldorf Astoria this week 🙂 I was unhappy we were not going to get our last couple get-away to Cyprus BUT then there was a competition on Channel 4 FM where you could win a gift card to a 2-night stay in the luxurious Waldorf Astoria!! I called, made a complain about the lack of travel, they felt sorry for me and I won!!!! 😀
Miss anything? I love my bump and being pregnant but I do start to miss my old body which didn’t give me pain and I could wear what I wanted!
And family and friends at home of course ❤
I don’t miss it but I do look heavily forward to a class of red grapes and some good sashimi sushi!
Movement: Not been to my usual prenatal Pilates class this week but been swimming in the morning… wish I could say morningS! I better do it today!!!! 🙂 Baby is moving and kicking a lot though 😀
Reason I didn’t go to my class, which I actually love, is that we had our weekly meeting in the Danish mummy group 🙂 We are about 12 girls meeting up regularly – this time we were only two out of eight women without babies! I felt a bit like I was missing something, but it’s so fantastic to see all the beautiful babies popping out, and it really reminds me why we are doing this!! Babies are just too cute and a true miracle ❤ The group is great to share experiences and ask for advise – and a good excuse for a little treat 😉
Food cravings: Ice cream… Bought a low-fat/sugar passion fruit ice cream, really wanted carrot cake yesterday but I managed to avoid it! Proud!!
Labour signs: Braxton Hicks contractions and pressure on pelvic. I have the feeling I will go over time so still weeks to go…
Mood: Happy but I just want baby out now!!! Excited, tired and slightly annoyed about painful back!
Looking forward to: Of course meeting my baby soon and being finish with my to-do list before baby arrival 🙂 Looking forward to the weekend – wedding and a baby shower 🙂
Whats on the ‘pregnancy to-do’ this morning:
Reading about baby – after birth! Been reading so much about labour its time to go into the stages afterwards which everyone says is where the knowledge really is needed!! I think all will be fine and in 9 out of 10 cases the mummy instinct will tell me what to do. Anyhow will read a bit about it just in case 😉
I’m just having a cup of raspberry leaf tea! It’s not tasty so will let you know whether its true… http://www.babycentre.co.uk/x545986/can-raspberry-leaf-tea-help-to-ease-labour – would taste better with a piece of carrot cake I think 😛
Hereafter a trip to the pool not for tanning but for some swimming – which I do with lots of sun scream – in shadow, cover the belly and make sure I don’t get to hot! The higher level of hormones make skin much more sensitive and you burn so easy – and sun it’s not really good for any – pregnant or not…
That’s it for today! Saying cheers is raspberry leaf tea!! 🙂
Have a great day
