I’ve decided I’m growing a future Olympian. This week has been non-stop movement – flips, kicks and all sorts! It’s been crazy, but also so amazing. Connor’s felt her more than ever this week, to the point he’s even felt sorry for me a little where I’m being beaten from the inside!
I’ve been getting dizziness and sickness a lot this week, but I’ve completely switched to water and eating healthier. I’ve been needing a bit more sugar and I think my blood pressure is a bit everywhere due to my anxiety. I was in Tesco yesterday and it felt like I was going to pass out because I didn’t have enough sugar in me – either that or my body was rejecting the KFC I’d had 10 minutes prior. All I know is that either I need to remember my sugar or to steer clear of fatty foods for the final 9 weeks because clearly something isn’t exactly as it should be.
I am loving being pregnant at the moment, it’s so amazing and I’m blown away every time I think about the reality of what’s happening inside of me and what’s going to happen in 9 weeks time. The only issue I have at the moment is that I’m quite bored. I sit indoors every day wanting to go to the gym or do something, but I can’t. I want to go on walks, but the weather has taken a turn for the worse. It’s been fine until now with scans, Christmas and birthdays to look forward to, but now it’s just a waiting game and the countdown towards my due date is well and truly on!
However, there are things I can take advantage of. Massages, not carrying heavy bags and being able to lay in bed until midday are all things I’m able to enjoy and it be classed as socially acceptable and not at all lazy. Although I do feel lazy if I’m still in bed after 9:30am.
