I’m yet to do the shoot, but I think I will be probably lying down or some kind of pose that means little effort for my body.
(Yeah, a classic lie across the bed pose. I was initially wearing a dress, but I didn’t like how it looked in the photos/you couldn’t see my bump as well.)
I’ve been umming and ahh-ing about whether or not to write this today etc.
I wish I had just made myself be sick before going to bed, but I really hoped it would pass.
By watching B I mean I just laid on the sofa while she watched TV. I felt bad, but it was all I could do.
She was just asleep on my Mum’s lap. We (well Tiago) kept her up for an hour and hoped that she would sleep again.
It’s good to know that she can nap for a good amount of time after having a short nap not too long before.
The sickness just kind of ‘rose up’.
Grim. B was just crying and luckily Tiago came upstairs and took her downstairs.
I will probably call the doctors tomorrow just to rule stuff out, but I also don’t want to waste their time.
Lie in bed and try to sleep, or just watch terrible TV. I did feel better the next night as I just watched TV in bed, and I fell asleep with my phone next to me which I never do – and slept solidly until B woke up at 5.30am.
I guess it’s been due, and growing a baby is tiring.
I try to put myself in her shoes. It must be so annoying not being able to say what you want, though I can guess at times, but sometimes I seem quite off.
That was my frustration.
Not the approach I like to take, but I was desperate.
I felt like a bit of a champion.
I do intend to breastfeed again, so she will still be taking nutrients but in a less invasive way to being inside of me I imagine. That’s what I think anyways. The baby is due to double in size between now and birth. *Nervous laugh*
It’s been a struggle.
I really struggled to get a urine sample before I left the house, but I couldn’t see over my bump and so didn’t catch most of it. She said it was enough for the test though. I had drank a lot, but I guess it was old piss. Lovely.
And drinking all the drinks had helped as it came out quite easily. Hurrah.

I thought that B had just been over the okay line (I’m not sure what that is, but I thought it was around 10-15%?)
So yeah my suspicions of the baby being bigger have been confirmed. Maybe the first time my body was testing me and thought I could grow a bigger one this time?
Cue a conversation about B’s birth again.
We can also cancel until an hour before check-in so if my parents change their minds, then we can cancel.
This hotel also has a pool, but it is a bit cheaper and we haven’t had food from our favourite Indian restaurant in a long time so it’s a good excuse to change hotel and location.
I think this makes me sound really bad…
A lot to cram into the last hashtag, but yeah it was good. I had ran a very shallow bath to begin with and realised I either had to really fill it up or not have a bath. It was weird lifting my bump out of the water as it suddenly felt cold, but also quite heavy?
28 weeks pregnant with B comparison:
Well, spoiler I am pregnant again but it would be nice to have a comparison photo.
I have taken less nudes this time (if any?), but I do need to take at least one like this just as a reminder – and maybe baby X will say ‘Hey Mum, why did you not take a nude portrait with me?’
I am still dancing, but I think I need to be more casual about it with my tiredness and all. No one has commented about my bump yet, but then again I am quite behind with posting them – just like this project. At the time of writing this, this will be my 17th post that I need to post. They’re all ready to go, but yeah I’ve fell behind.
I’m also adding the first photo that I took at 29 weeks on as it talks about my 28 week appointment:
My midwife appointments are currently every 3 weeks. My blood test was more successful this time too.
No one has mentioned that my muscles have separated this time, which is good – I’ve made an effort to not do anything that might encourage them to separate more.
I think my placenta is at the back this time.
I’m yet to have a leak, so maybe that might happen soon?
