So I’m almost 39 weeks pregnant now..I can say my due date is NEXT WEEK! ARGH!
Of course, I could still be waiting around for some time after that but I have a “feeling” she’ll be early..even if that feeling is just wishful thinking.
I was just remembering two years ago when I was waiting for Fred to come..it was quite a different experience..I don’t think I was so desperate..I was quite enjoying my month of mat leave before my due date..I used to go swimming, watch House boxsets, make casseroles for the freezer..I even went to a show in central London! Once I popped to the shop for some cash….
IT’S SO DIFFERENT NOW. Basically I can’t walk..the walk to the shop is way too far..I can’t drive to the supermarket cos I can’t handle the walk around with Fred as well..it’s too much. I can’t watch boxsets all day cos I have a toddler to look after..I can’t really look after him cos I can’t walk. I can’t do anything!
The other day I tidied up and prepared a one pot dinner..it killed me.
My crying sessions have pretty much passed so that’s good but I obviously get frustrated and have a little whinge..yesterday I woke up at 4am thinking I was in labour but it was just a false alarm..I keep doing this every five minutes…is this it??!! Is this it??!!!
So I had a good cry about that..”wahhhh why isn’t she here yet!!!”
I’m sure I’m remembering my first pregnancy through rose tinted glasses..I’m sure I was desperate for it to be over then too..but now I’m REALLY DESPERATE.
Luckily, I have so much support from my family..my parents are coming up three times this week to take Fred out, help me with house stuff so I can rest and take baths, naps etc.
Here are some things that are keeping me going:
I was messaging some friends that I felt like shit and they said get ready, put lipstick on, you’ll feel better. And I did! I’m going to buy myself a new shade as a little treat tomorrow.
Never heard of them till the other day..you put them in your bath and they soothe all your aches and pains. Lovely!
Getting my hair done on Friday..I’m thinking a blue dip dye?
My favourite podcast about the Gilmore Girls is out today woo! And it’s the season finale..argh! Getting myself properly geared up for the new episodes that get released on the 25th..
We’re all a little under the weather in the Hogan household so I’ve been boiling up milk with turmeric, ginger and honey to make a delicious medicine drink..Dan says it tastes like sweet curry. I love it. Fred won’t touch it. Oh well.
More chocolate than biscuit biscuits
I love these biscuits from marksys and now Aldi do a knock off version! Hooray!
I’ll leave you with that and you never know, next time I post I might have a baby!
