Hi D Ho, heres my pregnancy update for week 27! Baby is now 2 Lbs in weight and about the size of a head of cauliflower.
Baby is kicking so strongly and CONSTANTLY. Its really distracting when your working away in a quite office trying to concentrate on some terribly interesting report and baby keeps going “knock knock, I’m still here, knock knock” and then starts playing the drums with your tummy. Even poor Dear Husband (DH) was getting bet up by bump in bed the other night, the kicks were so strong he could feel them in his side as I was trying to sleep.
Im not sure if its January blues or just the fact that I’m coming into my third trimester but this week I feel really PREGNANT! I’m stiff, sore and tired. I feel like I’ve become the size of a house over the last few weeks and I’m getting winded walking up a flight of stairs. I could really do with another weeks holidays just to sleep. I also put on a whole 2 Lbs this week, I only put on 1 Lb a week over the Christmas period and now a whole 2 Lbs appears out of nowhere in one week – needless to say I’m not a happy bunny!
I’ve been back in bootcamp classes this week but they too seemed a little harder than normal and I’ve even had to cut out lunges now as my bump is getting too big (not that lunges are were my best friend to begin with but I’m trying to hold on to as many exercises as I can for as long as they are safe to do)! Now I did miss a lot of bootcamp classes in December due to our trip to New York and Christmas so I’m hoping thats the reason I’m feeling so out of shape – the next few weeks should tell all!
On a lighter note I attended my first antenatal class this week. I did these classes last time too but I though a refresher could be a good idea. So off myself and my good old friend from school, M (whos also pregnant) tottered off to the class like a pair of teenagers again. We are quite a funny pair, this is M’s second pregnancy too but she has happily managed to get this far without learning too many pregnancy gory details while I on the other hand probably know far too much. We spent most of the class giving each other those “I told you so” and “what the hell” looks, but it was good fun. Its nice to have someone to share this with (other than DH) who you can talk about pregnancy related stuff non stop with without boring the pants off each outer.
Little man has gotten very cute this week, every morning when he wakes around 6am he comes into bed with me for a little feed before we start the day. I love this time for us to bond and cuddle before the madness of the day begins. Normally when its time to get up he gives Dear Husband a kiss and then me a kiss and then jumps out of bed, now he has started lifting up my top and kissing bump as well – very cute!
Anyway thats my little pregnancy update for week 27, chat to you all later xxx
