Wow…getting ever nearer to that single figure countdown!
The past week has seen a couple of appointments. Monday was Whooping Cough jag day, which was fine…although I felt I had a funny taste in my mouth afterwards.
Tuesday was Glucose Tolerance Test…I had my last eat/drink at 8.30pm the night before and my appointment was at 9am. First bloods were taken, then the drink which wasn’t actually too bad, then I had to sit in Reception for 2 hours…those chairs were so uncomfy – I was so tempted to ask for a bed so I could have a nap as I was totally shattered. I then went back for blood test number 2. They offered me some food afterwards, but nothing sounded as tempting as a McDonalds! After a McChicken sandwich meal, I headed to Mothercare to return a maxi dress I had bought in March which I only got round to trying on last week and it was horrendous! Picked up a nice dress and couple of tops which will double up as nursing tops (hopefully if I managed to breastfeed). The next morning I got the call from hospital to say results had come back fine…so no gestational diabetes…I must just cook big babies!
The rest of the week passed in a bit of a blur, with day job lots of changes taking place, which I’m not too concerned about as not sure at this time whether I will go back or not, but a bit unsettling when you don’t know what your role will be. Our business was very busy over the weekend, so I had to help out…which wiped me out on Sunday and I felt like bit of a failure to M as we did nothing fun 😦
At beginning of week didn’t notice too much, but by weekend looked like I had stuck a watermelon up my jumper and belly button felt like it was getting ripped open again.
Heartburn on and off, noticed a bit of boob leakage when in shower and I swear I’m not imagining the cankles!
2lbs on…darn you cakes!
Feeling a bit more positive this week which in turn has helped me start getting butt in gear and get organised.
Could definitely be doing with more of that!
Bought a Tippietoes mini baby bath, since I only have a shower cubicle and Chicco Baby Bouncer chair. Have been researching cots today – even though I won’t need for a few months, but have decided to not to put off purchasing and just going to get it now. Also picked up a few bits to start putting away for hospital bag.
Not got anything specific this week to sort out – but making the most of the quiet times during work to get stuff purchased! I have on my list for maternity leave to sort out our attic room, but I think I need to start on that now, as running out of storage space/somewhere for guests to sleep if they come to help once baby here.
