The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed my blog has been a bit sparse of new posts in the last week or so and that it was unfortunately down for a while during my holiday. Well thankfully it’s now all back up and in running order and I’ve finally had enough time post-honeymoon among all the hecticness (I don’t care that’s not a word, I’ve just made it one) to sit down and write some posts. As, although I scheduled posts for while I was away, I haven’t actually written anything in quite a few weeks I thought it was worth just having a general update/chatty post. Hope that’s okay!
So we had an amazing honeymoon! Although it feels like I can’t quite put into words how good it was, I’m going to try to in this Thursday’s post – focusing on holidaying while pregnant as this is a pregnancy blog after all. Now that we’re back we’ve started to get a little bit nervous about how close the wedding and baby’s due date are. It’s less than 12 weeks until we get married now and it suddenly feels like we have so much to do and not enough time to do it all in. We’re less stressed about the ‘baby to do’ list as we’ve got so much stuff for her and we can always nip to the shops if we need to when she’s here – unfortunately you can’t do that mid-wedding.
There’s 89 days left til she’s due now (I’m 27+2) meaning I’m nearing the end of my second trimester. As promised on Sunday I’ll do a round up of the second half of it (first half post here) and from then on in I’m going to aim to do a week-by-week account every Sunday, which is when a new pregnancy week rolls around for me. I figured there might be more to say in the third trimester – although I’d hope for a fairly uneventful one!
It currently feels like there’s not enough hours in the day as I have various projects I want to get finished before bump arrives and it doesn’t help that most days I just feel like chilling out, having a nap, reading a book and enjoying time to myself before entering the crazy world of motherhood. I know this is an absolute spoilt brat whinge – especially after just being on holiday where I was able to do just that – but there we go!
Looking ahead, we start our NCT classes tomorrow which I’m looking forward to and hoping we meet some lovely couples during who we can make friends with as it’d be great to get to know people with babies the same age. I’ve also got various appointments coming up with midwifes, consultants etc so it does feel like things are starting to gather pace now ready for September.
I don’t want to talk too much about bump’s progress as that would render Sunday’s post absolutely useless so I shall sign off now!
