My Pregnancy Diary – Part 7

My Pregnancy Diary – Part 7

Date of entry: Friday 03 May 2013 – 8:45pm (32 weeks pregnant)

It’s been another busy week and I’m thankful we have a long weekend ahead of us. The weather is getting warmer which is lovely! :-)

Hubby and I had our first antenatal class earlier this week, it was interesting and the topics covered included how to give the baby a bath and positions for sleeping. We also watched an amazingly cute DVD on the early days of a baby’s life and how to bond with the baby in those early days. We have two more to go on breast feeding and labour, interesting times ahead.

I had some pelvic pain earlier this week but in general, I’ve still been doing good.

With each passing day, my love for this baby grows and intensifies. The kicks are very regular and feeling them always leave me in awe. Can’t wait to meet my baby. Started my work countdown in earnest and I now have 24 working days left…….I can’t wait.

Today has been an emotionally draining day for me. Firstly, I woke up on time then spent ages in the shower only to then spend what felt like an age trying to decide on an outfit. I knew the weather was going to be nice and I wanted to reflect that in my dressing but I just wasn’t satisfied with what I was seeing in the mirror. It wasn’t even an issue of things not fitting, more a general feeling of dissatisfaction. Needless to say, I was late for work.

When I got to work, I told my team that I wasn’t in the mood so they should try to understand. Later, I answered the phone to an internal call and was told that my name no longer appears on my extension. As silly as it seems, that made me slightly sad. Later that day, I had colleagues calling round looking for me……*sigh*. I was very tempted to just go back home. Whilst on that subject, I’m seriously considering starting my maternity leave earlier, but I’ll see how it goes.

I had a few events on bank holiday Sunday and it was nice to see some family members. The general consensus over the size of my bump continues. :-)

So going back to my current state of mind…..I can’t really pin point the cause of this low mood but guess it’s to be expected given the hormonal changes. I have noticed that I more irritable, less tolerable and apparently more snappy! I don’t mean to be snappy and it’s in direct opposition to how I want to feel. I have a lot on my mind but at the moment, I’m struggling to get it out. I know it will pass soon though and I will make more of a conscious effort not to be a meanie. *covers face*

I am however looking forward to collecting the Moses basket and stand that I bought for £0.99 on eBay. Can’t believe the bargain price and I somehow feel like the seller will be gutted at the price.

Today has been a productive day. I picked up the basket and stand and I’m still amazed at the price.

I went to my friend Mrs E’s place earlier today. She gave me a bag of baby clothes, a cot mobile, a baby gym, as well as some other bits and bobs. I was slightly overwhelmed if I’m honest.

We went to the second antenatal class about breastfeeding today, it was very insightful. I pray I get the hang of it when the baby arrives. Looking forward to bonding with the baby. :-) :-) :-)
