29 weeks pregnant

Standard

Spring is officially here! Goodbye retched Winter, hello happy, sunny Spring! I already feel a lot brighter as I wake to the sound of wood pigeons cooing (one of my favourite sounds) and bright sunlight pouring in through the binds. It’s amazing what a little sunlight can do for your spirits isn’t it.

This week the baby has been a right wriggler! I am not sure if he’s moved position or has fallen a little lower, but he seems to be constantly pushing on my my bladder which is sending me into regular desperation for the toilet! I really don’t remember my son being this active last time – I mean, to the point where I am being woken up every morning at 4.30am because of the jabs to my ribs! Reckon I’m going to have another big, strong baby!

I had to have a day off of work this week actually; I must have rolled over too violently in the middle of the night because I woke myself up doing it with the most awful ripping pain along my hip and bump. I can only describe it as a hot tearing sensation! The next morning it was so painful – the baby was still as active as ever, so I knew I hadn’t done him any damage. I think I must have pulled a ligament. I spent that day with my feet up, watching terrible TV and adding rows to my crochet baby blanket and all seems to be ok now. Not the most pleasant experience and still a bit sore!

I had a call from the doctor yesterday and apparently according to my latest blood and water tests, not only I am quite badly anaemic again, I have a water infection too – just marvellous. So back on the old antibiotics and iron tablets I go. Jeeze, I am going to be rattling as I walk soon! The joys of pregnancy. I am finding it so hard to just be healthy – if I’m not anaemic, I have some kind of infection, if I don’t have that, I’m full of cold, if it’s not that, it’s something else! Is it actually possible to be pregnant and totally A-OK in the health department?!

My bump is certainly getting bigger now. I look at it and think, ‘you still have eleven weeks to go, how much bigger can you possibly get?!‘ then out comes the Bio Oil or Body Butter (I’m paranoid about stretch marks!!)
