[My Flickr account has expired & Daniel was the last person to be seen with my online banking card, so as soon as I track it down I'll post a bump picture!]

29 weeks (+2) already, wow. That's nearly 30, which is like three quarters of the way! (We've been doing fractions at school, could you tell?) I've decided to do things a little differently on this little blog, with less structure and more personal posting. I'll still post the same things, pregnancy updates, iPhone pictures etc, just with more chat. I particularly love blogs where you really feel like you get to know the writer, and I want mine to be like that too, fingers crossed!

Back to the bebe, TheBump tells me that this week he's grown to 15.2-16.7 inches, roughly the size of an acorn squash, which seems absolutely massive! He's still got another 10 weeks in there, growin'! Oh Lord, I've just read more "Right now, we weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds but he's still got a ways to go -- can you believe he'll triple in weight before birth?" Ohmyfreakinggosh. I've been thinking so far that he's going to come early, and be quite small, but the size of my tummy is beginning to worry me. I'm roughly the size I was when I had Daniel, already, and I read somewhere the second baby is averagely 5oz bigger than the first! Daniel was 8lb 8oz! I've also put on weight on my back, which seems bizarre, and I hope it goes away! Luckily though, I still haven;'t discovered any stretch marks, I am about to slather myself with some cocoa-butter moisturiser! My scar from my belly bar is looking particularly shiny, however.

Sleep is, difficult. Mostly due to this terrible cold, as soon as I lie down my nose stops working, and I keep waking with a dry mouth. Nightmares, the temperature and nausea have also had a hand in my lack-of-sleep, though I am sleeping 7-8 hours a night so I can't really complain!

My cravings have died down a little now, I'm just constantly hungry. Colin often laughs at me when I announce I'm going to have a bedtime snack, but baby needs it! My metabolism is working at top speed so I'm having to eat little and often, no complaints here!

In three weeks we get to have another scan, to check on my low-lying placenta. Fingers firmly crossed it moves because the thought of a c-section terrifies me! More so than regular labour, although that's also pretty high on the scale. I'm not as petrified as I was with Daniel though, I guess I know it's worth it, and my labour with him wasn't even really that bad! Hopefully this one will just pop on out. Speaking of "this one" I still hate that he doesn't have a name, even though I know it's not important yet!

Today we had the best day, and spent the afternoon at the park. I genuinely thought I was going to go into labour, Daniel kept demanding I go down the slide with him! But I'm so tired now, I'm going to curl up with a magazine and paint my nails (if I can reach my feet!).

Lots of Love

  2. Oh please don't be too scared about a c-section, as horrible as the thought is that you may not be able to have a natural birth, if they're planned, then they really aren't too bad. Mine was quite a pleasant experiance actually and I would seriously consider another for the next bubba if needs be x

    1. I'm trying! Haha, I'm not freaking out until the next scan, because there's a high chance it will have moved. But the whole idea of not being in control (although granted the level of 'control' in a natural labour is debatable!) & someone cutting me open scares me! You'll definitely be the one I come to for reassurance though!! xxx

    2. I'm sure it will of moved, they normally do, fingers crossed for you! I walked into my c-section laughing and joking, I was a bit overwhelmed. By the time they tell you that they're cutting, bubba will be out! That bit is super quick, it's the sewing you up that takes the time!xxx
