He’s home! It’s been just over a week since the husband arrived home and I haven’t had too much pregnancy rage towards him. It’s been lovely having him back – I don’t think you realise how lonely you are until you have someone sat next to you on the sofa again, or to say goodnight to and wake up with them by your side. Even the fact his clothes are lying around every room in the house – does not bother me at all....Since being home, he has decided he wants to grow a moustache - not really a fan to be honest so I 'joked' that I would not kiss him if he had one. He's still growing the moustache.
I’m now 30 weeks – which is just crazy. Can’t believe I’ve only got 10 weeks to go. I’m feeling okay, just pretty big and feeling the extra weight so I feel like I’m having to catch my breath even just getting up off the sofa some days. I walk like a snail and although I’m still trying to do CrossFit at least twice a week – a lot of the workouts can be tailored for me, which is great, so still feel like I’m still pushing myself – just nowhere near as much as I could, which can be frustrating. I want to try and exercise as far along as I can but my bump is really starting to get in the way! Not that I’m complaining. One of the good things about getting bigger is that Bear is getting bigger too. The kicks and wriggles are so strong now – and sometimes it looks like I have an alien in my stomach as he/she moves around – which is pretty amazing to watch. He/she must love lying on my bladder as the toilet trips are becoming more frequent and always seems to be just as I am about to fall asleep. Back pain is also keeping me awake at night - so it's a laugh a minute getting to sleep.
We were at our friends house the other night and while I watched people shot tequila and my husband become more annoying – I mean drunk, I thought about what I have missed since being pregnant. It’s easy to know what my number 1 is….
So alcohol, steak, coffee and cigarettes. I was a real pillar of health when I wasn’t pregnant!
So what has been my high/low of the week?
High of the week: Our nursery furniture arrived today, which is pretty exciting. Once it is all assembled - I think that is when it will really start to feel real. And this weekend we are heading back to the North East and going shopping for more baby things with our mums (Grandma and Gran). They’ve already been incredibly generous as this is the first grandchild – so we feel very lucky. Oh and I finally got to spend my pregnancy rage MacDonald's vouchers!
Low of the week: Some random man shouted TWINS at me the other day – which I’m happy to say he found hilarious.
Pregnancy rage: I think it is obvious that my husband washing his hands in the toilet was prime pregnancy rage material.
Product of the week: Bio-oil. Touch wood – I haven’t seen a stretch mark - yet.
Advice of the week: 'Don't wish your pregnancy away.' I think once you get closer to the final stretch, well for me anyway, I just want to meet Bear. Find out whether we have a son or daughter. I want to see what he/she looks like. But someone told me to not wish my pregnancy away - to enjoy it as this is such a special time and once the baby arrives - well that's when the real fun begins.
Exercise: CrossFit and plenty of walking. Though really starting to feel more difficult.
Cravings: Anything I can find that is naughty food!
Can't believe my next blog post I will be in single finger countdown, eek! And hopefully, the nursery furniture will have been assembled and my husband will have shaved his moustache....
