This was a tough week and I’m really starting to feel pregnant and big and awkward! I’ve been having trouble sleeping – either too hot, or pins and needles or just not able to get comfortable. I’ve been trying to use a pillow to get comfortable but its not really working well. I used to have a pregnancy pillow and think I may need to invest in something similar again. Any recommendations? Something that can be used when baby arrives for feeding would be good so I get some good use out of it!
I’ve also been poorly this week. We had visitors over the Bank Holiday weekend which was really lovely, but the brought a sickness bug with them! Neither hubby or Little Lady caught it so I think maybe I’m more susceptible while pregnant as usually I have a cast iron stomach! I wasn’t actually sick during my first trimester (just a constant feeling of nausea) so this was my first bought of sickness this pregnancy. I had one awful night where I was up every couple of hours. The strangest sensation was feeling the baby moving while I was being sick! I think he wondered what on earth was going on. It must have been quite a roller coaster for him in there! I had 2 days where I couldn’t really eat anything which I was a little worried about but am now feeling much better. Yesterday I managed small meals and today I feel much closer to normal. The thing I noticed the most was my complete lack of energy over those couple of days. It felt worse than I would normally expect with a stomach bug. I guess thats down to the baby still taking what it needed, leaving me with no reserves!
We are away for the weekend this week – going back to Devon (where we recently moved away from) to see some friends and stay with family. So that will be another busy weekend. Then we have guests staying here for a few days so no time for much rest! I need to make sure the house is clean and tidy before we go away, and change the spare bedding etc so there is plenty to do but I’m struggling to get the energy together to do it. I think little and often is the answer!
I’m almost out of all of my pre pregnancy clothes now, only a couple of tops still fit me. I have some maternity clothes from H&M which I got a month or so ago and will need to get a few more now I think to last me. Sounds like a good excuse for a shopping trip!
