Well, I am now one week from my due date and all seems quiet on the western front! I’m still having the most horrendous period type pains in my tummy, back and legs but so far no sign of “the great escape”.
This pregnancy has gone really quickly I think, Hubby says he feels like I’ve been pregnant forever, but for me its only been the last couple of weeks which have started to drag. On the whole this pregnancy has been far easier than when I was pregnant with Little Bean and apart from the numerous scares that we’ve had throughout, I have found this to be a more enjoyable pregnancy. I’m pleased to say (hopefully I won’t tempt fate here) that I have managed to avoid the dreaded PUPP this time around and that is a blessing in itself!
My bump now looks like an abnormal shelf sticking out where my tummy should be, I have carried so differently this time. With Little Bean I literally blew up, after spending my life as a pretty much straight up and down girl, I had fat on my fat AND a double chin – it was not attractive. With this little man, I’m all bump! However, I’m confused? With Little Bean, I couldn’t put on my own shoes and socks from about week 25 but here I am at 39 weeks and despite having a freakishly large bump, I can STILL bend down and touch my toes?!?!?! How does that work, where does the bump disappear to when I bend down?
I have also had a startling realisation over the weekend, that somewhere in the move we have managed to accidentally dispose of my much loved Medela Swing Breastpump which I used religiously when breastfeeding Little Bean AND also my CLOSE Baby Sling – both items which I wouldn’t have been without. I hate being a disorganised person, its just not me so I’m hoping that once this Little Man joins the world he may bring a part of my brain back with him!!
Fingers crossed, this time next week I won’t be writing a post saying “STILL WAITING” but I have a fear that I will, Little Bean was two weeks late so I don’t see why Beanie Boy (as I think I may call him for now) will be any different.
Catch ya later!!
