Only last week I was moaning about being overdue and complaining about the things I won’t miss about being pregnant, and today I’m holding a baby in my arms and it all just feels like a distant memory. Not just any baby, but my baby.
I’ve not kept it as a secret that I’ve hated being pregnant. When I found out I was pregnant I had lovely visions of myself holding my bump and looking lovingly at Chris and everything being all lovely and happy. Instead I’ve spent 41 weeks of being sick and glaring at my other half for ‘doing this to me’.
So my pregnancy due date has come and gone, and I’m some how a good 41 weeks pregnant, aka the size of a house and unable to move. While I know that only 5% of babies come on their due date, I had convinced myself, and was warned by my consultant, that due to a medical condition I was likely to have my baby before 40 weeks. So it was pretty surprising when due date came and went, and I’m now 10 days overdue.
So here I am, 28 weeks pregnant, how did that happen? I mean I know how it happened, but where has the time gone?! Only yesterday I was 8 weeks pregnant trying and failing to quietly be sick in the work toilets, making up excuses why I wasn’t drinking at social events (and I always drink at social events…), and trying to come up with fun pregnancy announcements with Chris. And now here I am, in my final trimester, being questioned if I’ve made a birth plan yet (I haven’t), have we decorated the babies room (we haven’t), and do we have any names in mind (we at least have this!).Read more
At the beginning of every year, I like to think about all the fun exciting things I want to aim for, or where I want to go, or what I want to change.
Last year I wanted to become more independent again and live on my own, and I bought my own little flat and I was very content with that. So this year I wanted to continue with the independent lifestyle that I enjoyed and go travelling across America on my own with Trek America, but instead, in January I found out I was pregnant.
