Pregnancy day 189...91 days to go!
Baby is now 14.5 inches long and weighs about 2 pounds. Wow - 2 pounds of baby are in my tummy, that's insane!
I am still feeling great. Other than the symptoms that I posted about the other day here (which are more of a nuisance than a genuine problem), I feel fantastic and have much more energy these days. I have definitely expanded again this week in the tummy region, don't you think?...and I gained over 2.5 pounds this week alone -eek!
I have my 28-week midwife appointment this coming Friday, even though it's actually at the end of week 27. The midwife wanted to see me early because I have a Glucose Tolerance Test next Monday and she wants to chat to me about it before then. I will update you about these 2 appointments after I have them, no doubt.
Emotionally I am coping pretty well. It helps that this weekend was a 4-day weekend here in the UK, allowing me to take a break from work which was much needed. Have I mentioned that work is sooooo stressful at the moment for me? Sometimes for no reason? I think I have. This Wednesday they are having interviews for the person to cover my maternity leave which makes the end seem nearer.
Baby has been extremely active this past week; he likes to kick me more or less throughout the day now. I must admit, I kinda love his little kicks, even when they are uncomfortable. I think we might have an active little boy on our hands in a few months!
