The weeks are ticking by slowly - or perhaps they are wooshing past and I'm just getting more impatient?! I'm now 29 weeks pregnant (30 weeks on 9th June!), which means there is roughly 10 weeks to go until I am 40 weeks pregnant, but less than that to 'full term' at 37 weeks...eeeeek!
Feeling a LOT more prepared now we have the buggy/car seat (THANK YOU Nanny & Grandad!) and we can order the cot (THANK YOU Grams & Gramps!), the nursery done and lots of goodies to fill it with, plus more than enough baby clothes - I guess I have a LOT more laundry to do now! I think I'm going to pack my 'hospital' bags soon - one for me, one for Nugget - and make sure that Colin has strict instructions on what to bring lest anything should be forgotten - let's face it, it's surely a given I'll forget something crucial!
This is me and my bump at 29/30 weeks:
And for comparison purposes, this was me at 24 weeks:
Quite a lot of growth in 5/6 weeks! I wonder how much bigger I am going to get, it's so weird not actually knowing how big Nugget is! The midwives measure my bump, but as of yet they haven't given any indication as to how big baby is - most annoying!
People keep asking me how I am feeling, and my standard answer is "knackered", but despite the feelings of sheer exhaustion and onset on insomnia, I'm really enjoying the third trimester and am feeling quite well. Lots of people are asking to touch the bump, hoping to feel a kick, although I think Nugget still plays tricks on people, hehe! Colin has finally felt some proper kicking, which is brilliant, although sometimes I feel black and blue inside from all of the sharp prods! There is still obviously a lot of speculation as to whether Nugget is 'pink' or 'blue', but we're still keeping stchum!
