(Trigger warning: I talk about some of my anxiety during the pregnancy and unpleasant day dreams.)
I think so anyways. The dry skin at the back of her neck has probably been caused by her love of it…
I love when she also carries three pairs of my pants around the house too.
You can see how kids can easily suffocate themselves on accident…
It’s probably just because she found she can do it and it usually gets a reaction. Fair enough.
I generally plan to, but then end up talking about all the things that B has been up to.
Basically, I end up without a second baby.
I imagine the events, the conversations, the feelings, the reactions etc. It’s deep.
I can feel her (I find it weird that I know it’s a girl) moving about now as I am sat writing this, but sometimes I don’t. When B is awake my attention and focus is elsewhere.
I originally wrote them instead of her as I find it weird to say it’s a girl, I think as I didn’t know what B was until she came out.
Hiccups are reassuring. My Mum said before that my younger sister was the same.
I need to start reading about hypnobirthing again and start mentally preparing myself for the birth. I stretch in the morning and evening, and try to go for a walk or two a day with B so I feel quite strong at least. I just need to get strong mentally.
With B I’m sure they said about booking it quite early on, or maybe I was just on the ball.
I’m sure with B they told me to come in the same day, so I was surprised it was a bit of a wait. It’s good that the certificate is not a piece of paper this time – so much more convenient.
I’m more bothered about getting my flu vaccine now than the whooping cough.
My Nan got hers at the start of the week. I do not fancy catching the flu.
I’m still loving my hashbrowns and scrambled egg toasted sandwich with a small glass of orange juice.
I won’t be hungry, but then I’ll just keep eating for ages once I start – especially at lunch.
I feel like I am running out of space already.
I mentioned it before but it seemed to be a one off, or two night event.
I thought my Nan had put the heating on, but she hadn’t. By the time I’d checked the thermostat, and gone to the loo I was wide awake.
It’s been taking over my brain space for the last 16 hours or so?
I’m keen for it to be after B drops down to one nap a day, which isn’t far away, and when baby X isn’t so far away.
We see her and her parents at the playground a lot. They’ll see each other from a distance and start smiling and flapping.
If it’s good enough for her, then it’s good enough for B. Great.
And just have a bit of time to feel less tired?
I do not know what I would do for a full day a week without having B around. I have work to do, but it’s more beneficial for it to be two mornings than a whole day. I’d get a lot more done. It’d also break the week up a bit.
He feels the middle of my belly, but I said I feel more movements at the bottom and then he felt something.
Yeah, not that funny really but we had a good laugh.
I was hoping it would wear her out, but she was up just before 6. Zzz.
23 weeks pregnant with B comparison:
Another unintentional pairing of comparison pictures – two diptychs. They also both talk about anxiety during pregnancy.
I decided to have another baby as soon as possible as I felt like it would be good to get the baby stage done and then hopefully in the not so distant future I can apply for bigger opportunities again. I also do think it will be good for them to be close in age.
I feel like since becoming a parent I have been approached for less opportunities, but maybe it’s because Covid is also a big part of life now and that also affects things?
I had to turn down one opportunity when I was pregnant with B as it was for international travel around the time B was due, but I guess it got cancelled due to Covid anyways.
