I did the ‘usual nude’ photos, then some wearing a towel, then thought this dress would be good.
It’s also because I took photos of myself playing around with a black backdrop when I was pregnant with B, and this is a quicker way to get a playful effect…
I think I am a bit more ready now. I keep thinking I should watch more hypnobirthing, but I know that I just need to remember to breathe and that’s it.
My bump had gone super tight, and then I think my mind went into overdrive.
But it obviously wasn’t… I felt relieved in ways as I do not like this waiting.
Luckily I have been getting better at going back to sleep. The other night I was awake from 3 to 5, and that was really annoying.
Turning over is uncomfortable. I usually go to the loo as well as getting up relieves my hips of pressure briefly.
It feels so long ago now, but it was June 2020.
I had a deadline (if I wasn’t in labour by 6pm I would have had to have a C-section) and I knew I had to get into the ‘zone’. I think not being moved about probably helped.
I’m not entirely convinced that this baby isn’t breech, or will not be by the time I give birth though. I do think I might be at home longer though. Having B complicates things as my Mum needs to come and get her, if she isn’t here already etc.
I do not like the uncertainty. I like to know what is going to happen. I have no clue.
My Nan tells me off for picking her up when she sees me doing it, but sometimes it needs to be done.
My back is aching a lot at the moment, and I stretched this morning.
I really hope she comes soon. I feel more ready now. I’m bored of these pains.
She really doesn’t know how much her life is about to change…
I think it’s 6, possibly more.
She just wants to get to the playground, but I’m always keen for a chat.
It’s from having B and always being out and about our local area. Some I know as they talk to other dog owners and so I have got to know them that way. It’s really nice going for a walk and sometimes having a chat with three people. B isn’t so impressed though…
I’ve said I’ll show her a video of B meeting the baby for the first time – if we remember to do it.
It’s usually after her afternoon nap, but sometimes in the morning as well.
Like little mirrors within the big mirror.
The clown training I did in London is really paying off.
It’s just a nice little thing that we do.
I’ve mentioned it before. It was easier to give it to her in her water when she was younger, and it encourages her to drink so it’s fine. I really don’t like the taste of it, but she only has plain water or milk otherwise, so it’s probably exciting to her.
I took a photo of me wearing it when I was pregnant with B, and that might have been the only time I wore it.
It’s definitely more appropriate for a winter baby, which was probably why it was on sale. It definitely warmed me up.
I asked if I could have a hug and she ignored me. Then I opened up my cardigan and she ran to me. Tiago came in the room and I held it out wide to hide her from view, so she had a laugh while Tiago pretended that he couldn’t see her and looked for her.
I only knew a couple of his songs until 6ish months ago, but then suddenly really got into a lot more of his music. He’s been the soundtrack to a lot of B’s meals, and weirdly yesterday I suddenly had an urge to listen to his music after having a bit of a break. Thanks for the music Meat Loaf.
