I am now officially in my third trimester! Hooray! The last stage of pregnancy has finally arrived and the finish line is in sight. Apparently I will start to feel a bit rubbish again soon as my due date looms. I am already starting to get quite tired in the evenings again and can barely keep my eyes open past 9pm. As the baby gets bigger, my body will have to work harder for us both and hence the tiredness I guess. Oh well, not too much longer left now!
A question: is it normal for the ‘nesting’ effect to take hold this early? I can’t stop cleaning just lately. I bought this all-purpose Flash spray which has hint of Fabreeze in it and it smells ssoooo good! I think I clean my kitchen worktops about three times a day just because I love the fresh clean smell I get when I walk back in! I hope this is just pregnancy ‘nesting’ and I am not developing OCD! I can’t stop sweeping, dusting and vacuuming either. There’s just something about an immaculate house at the moment. I don’t remember this happening until I was around 35 weeks last time.
I am also eating for England this week! I don’t appear to have that full feeling at the moment and so constantly feel like I’m hungry. I used to take a sandwich and an apple to work and that would do me for the day, today however, I have a sandwich, an orange, a nectarine, a fruit & grain bar and a Milky Way chocolate dessert and that will all be gone (leaving me hungry) by 3pm!
I went to a local baby sale in a secondary school at the weekend and managed to pick up a MaxiCozi Easy Base for our car seat for £20! So lucky as was going to buy it on Amazon for £95! I love a bargain!! Have now ordered our car seat (the MaxiCozi CabrioFix infant carrier) which fits nicely onto our new buggy and so we nearly have everything we need now. Can’t wait for little Baby C to arrive!
