I am late in writing this post as I am now actually 27+6 day's pregnant, this pregnancy really is going by so fast ! I was just going to do a week 26 and 27 updates in one post but so much has been going on I thought it was best to stick to weekly updates. Well, when I was 26 week's pregnant I was so busy as Sophia had her very first birthday and I was busy getting sorted for that. Also, Chloe went on holiday to Spain and it was a last minute holiday with her grandad so I had a mad rush of getting her passport renewed in time and getting her holiday clothes and everything else sorted in time. The other half has been at work a lot lately doing extra shifts, so I have been rushed off my feet trying to juggle all the housework, cooking, cleaning and childcare on my own.
I have been feeling so tired lately also I think its a mix of being pregnant and being so busy but I have been going to bed super early each night, I just feel so exhausted. I have forgotten to take a bump shot yet again, I really need to start taking photos as I have hardly any this pregnancy. But so many people have commented on the size of my bump this week and have said my bump looks the same size now as it did at full term with Sophia! I think I am having a big baby this time - I have a growth scan booked in at 28 weeks so I will be able to tell if the baby is actually big or if I am just piling on the pounds.
I still don't have any cravings, even though I have been a willing baby to want something nice to eat . I would love a chocolate or Chinese craving, then I would have an excuse to eat them all the time.
I have not had any hospital or midwife appointments this week but apart from the tiredness, I am feeling pretty good - no sickness or heartburn or any nasty pregnancy side effects. I am getting lower back pain still now and then, mostly if I have been doing housework and bending down. I am a bit stiff if I have been sitting down for a while and when I get out of bed but that's all. I have been sleeping loads better no more insomnia in the middle of the night, but I have started waking up in middle of the night with trips to the bathroom to wee now the baby is getting bigger.
Baby is moving loads now but all of the kicks are really low down still so I think the baby might be breech at moment, there is still plenty time for it to turn so I'm not worrying yet. We still haven't picked a girls name and even though we do not know what baby is I am 99 per cent sure it is another girl. We still haven't done any baby shopping yet either, I am so disorganised third time around. I think I am a lot more relaxed this pregnancy, I feel like I know what to expect and I am just finding this pregnancy so easy and straightforward and enjoyable compared to my previous two.
Anyway's I best go now even though I have more to say as Sophia has just woke from her nap and is now trying to break the laptop and if I just save this post in my drafts I will never get around to actually publishing it.
