The Week That Was: Week 30.

I look like I'm carrying a fully-grown adult in this picture, never mind a baby!

So here we are, I’m 31 weeks pregnant today. I feel quite heavily pregnant already which is a little laughable when you think I could have up to 11 weeks left to go if baby girl is lazy and goes overdue!

The main thing for me this week has been sickness, I think I probably mentioned in last week’s update that the damn morning sickness curse had struck again. I haven’t really been sick but have been feeling quite nauseous at different times and have even turned down dinner once or twice this week – something I’ve never done in my life apart from in those awful first few weeks way back in my first trimester! I should (and do) feel very grateful that at least I got a break from the sickness during the second part of my pregnancy – but I’d feel more grateful if I wasn’t writing this feeling like I was about to yak up on the keyboard!

I’ve spent a lot of time resting in bed this week, but probably less time napping, so I don’t know if that’s a sign my tiredness has peaked or whether it’s just because I’ve hardly been doing anything. I do feel guilty, as if I should be packing some sort of activity into every second of the day, but then I think in a matter of weeks my life is going to completely change and it kind of makes sense to be as relaxed as I can be now ahead of all of that. Plus we’re less than eight weeks away from the wedding so keeping off my feet as much as possible to avoid swollen ankles has got to be a good thing right?

On Tuesday I’ll officially be seven months pregnant (although some people base it on how many weeks they are, which would make me eight months next Sunday, I’ve been going on the actual day of the month and thus the 13th is my ‘monthiversary’) – I’ll check back in on Sunday for an update!
