I really wish she could talk so she could explain things to me. Maybe she likes that it feels cold?
I thought she had known for ages, then I read in a development thing that is a more recent ‘skill’ that they learn.
I think she knows. Again, I can’t ask her.
Things were just working. I did note that maybe it would stop her early mornings though.
I send reminders to myself of what I might want to talk about in my hashtags. I am starting to think that they are just super dull, but I am tired.
Friday I just thought she would not have a long enough nap before going to an appointment, and then going away so we might as well just try to leave as early as possible.
Saturday – She had her morning nap at a good time, then Tiago took her back to the hotel for a nap and she didn’t take it. Maybe it was because she knew T was in the room, but he had been there in the morning too?
Sunday – We left early so B and I could sleep in the car. Then we were meeting friends I could not be bothered to even try to get B to have a nap on the go. To be fair she showed no signs of being tired and wouldn’t even sit in her pushchair…
I just realised ‘what am I doing? I should just transition her to one nap now’ as I didn’t think she would end up having a very long second nap anyways.
I was hoping she would sleep late as she was awake for so long.
I went in with her water and paracetamol and she seemed fine, until every time I went to leave. Tiago went in after a bit and stayed with her until she calmed down.
This morning I was not ready to get her up, and she seemed tired so putting her in our bed seemed like the easier option.
My maternity pillow acted as a barrier so she was stuck on my side of the bed. She did cuddle up to me which was cute. When she went to Tiago’s side after an hour-ish I realised what an uncomfortable position I had been in.
The hotel reviews were really mixed, but it was nice. The staff were super friendly and the bed wasn’t bad.
Every time she woke up I sat upright and stressed. Again, it seemed like an easier option to just put her in our bed.
She had a similar bad sleep episode a week ago (awake for 2 hours in the night etc.) I don’t want to keep giving her paracetamol but she has been putting her fingers in her mouth a lot and she does seem to have a bit of a cold again.
Obviously I photograph them, so my worlds collide then but I mean colliding in real life – it was weird.
It was nice to introduce B to people, though when she was getting tired one night she kept falling over, so Tiago had to keep taking her out of the room.
We will have to see. I am really not looking forward to the clocks changing.
The time of her one nap means we do have a lot of time in the morning, and hopefully we can go out after her nap before it gets dark.
I’m not sure how safe it will be walking around with B at night, but I know people with dogs who are already trying to figure out a route. Some nights we might feel like we have to get out for a bit. I definitely wouldn’t go out with B by myself though.
She was listening for a heartbeat and I could feel the baby kicking so I wasn’t too worried then.
Shame as I like her.
It’s not too far to go and I’d rather just go for an extra check and know things are okay.
Of course the cream had just rolled away and was under the step ladder next to us.
Sorry B. I’m sure most people have slipped over in their piss at least once in their life. If they say no then they’re probably lying. I don’t remember doing it, but I might well have done at your age.
I was hoping to get away with not giving her a bath, but nope. Then I was hoping to just wash the back of her head, but she had splashed so much that I just washed all her hair.
Just like ‘you’re this big now’. We’ve seen some friends the last couple of days and their 4 year old son hadn’t even noticed I was pregnant until he gave me a hug last night and I pointed out he was hugging baby X too.
It does seem to have suddenly grown, but I have eaten a lot this weekend and it might be due to where my placenta is or something. I don’t know.
Yesterday I did manage to prep a blog post. I’m getting a bit over doing this blog to be honest, but I might feel better once I am up to date with putting the images in, writing pregnancy comparisons and tags etc.
It’s good for kids to play by themselves for a bit for sure. Mum guilt is real.
Me being lazy… In future I need to trust my health and safety officer instincts. (I’m not one, but I feel like becoming a parent I do notice risks better.)
*Nervous laugh* I’m just trying to go to bed earlier. The last couple of nights I have gone to sleep quite early. This is why I also need to get stuff done while B is awake/during her naps, though yesterday I had to nap during her nap and I imagine it will be the same today.
I feel like I have been writing ‘it’ instead of ‘her’ as sometimes I forget we know, though I will not 100% believe it until she is born.
I just hadn’t had much time to feel her movements as it was such a busy weekend, so it’s always a relief when I feel her moving about.
26 weeks with B comparison:
I heard the baby X’s heartbeat for the first time weeks ago, so not sure why it took so long with B.
It is weird thinking that at this point with B I was just going for a walk once a day and only seeing Tiago.
I feel like I look stronger in this above picture than I feel right now (at the same phase). I have made an effort to not sit up straight from lying down so hopefully my muscles will not separate so much this time. My midwife did think that I’d have to do physio after having B, but I didn’t have to luckily.
I think my placenta is in a different position this time, which may be why I can feel it kicking more than I did with B. It may also be why my bump looks different, but that might be down to having had a baby before.
As I’m not planning for a homebirth this time I have to go out to appointments, but I seem to have them at good times and it’s good to get out of the house.
I have not noticed any broken blood vessels this time, so far.
This time we do not really need to buy anything, though I remembered earlier that soon we will need to buy newborn nappies and things. Fun times ahead…
