The last one was at 19 weeks, so there should be a difference?
Maybe in each picture it will start to look more shabby. I’ve been wearing my maternity bras for a while now, and this is not one of them.
This morning she was eating some of my breakfast (scrambled eggs and crusts of my toast), and then throwing it on the floor. I did struggle to pick it up.
I love nesting.
Every time I go through my things I get rid of a few more things, but I need to start being ruthless.
I am tired, so yeah there will never be a good time again.
Playing my favourite ‘would I pay £5 to ship this?’ game.
I told Tiago about it and he said would most things really cost £5 to ship. I said no, but would you still pay £5 to ship it? Is it worth the money?
I did lie down before B’s second nap, but I’m not sure if I even slept.
Wake up as in become more alert. I ended up sleeping in until 7.10am, and then I looked through my books and stretched. Then Tiago had a nap (and is still napping as B is napping as I write this).
I try not to put her down for a nap until 9, and then wake her up between 10.30 to 11 depending on our plans.
I’m being more generous with her paracetamol these days, as otherwise she does not nap or sleep very well. I do worry that I am drugging her at times, but it’s only when I see her with her fingers in her mouth and it’s been 4 hours since the last dose…
If I put my finger in her mouth now it just gets bitten and it hurts.
The class isn’t the best but I do really like her teacher and she makes it way more enjoyable.
I mentioned I was pregnant last week and she said ‘oh me too’. I really could not tell that she was at all, but she does wear a baggy t-shirt. I had looked at moving locations and days, but I think once B goes down to one nap the other day and time will not work for us. Hopefully B will get enough stimulation at nursery and we can just do more music stuff at home.
I feel like I’ve mentioned it before, but I am starting to get waves of overwhelmed-ness now.
This would probably make a big difference, and I’m sure once she is born I will have to just surrender to motherhood, but for now I am enjoying have a bit of evening time to myself.
I just need to take each day/cycle of the day at a time.
We wanted this baby and I have to handle the responsibility. I am nervous though.
And she won’t be running off like B does.
It will be winter, but hopefully by then spring will not be too far away.
Like I said, I need to surrender to motherhood.
B’s classes moving to zoom would make things a lot easier to be fair. I doubt we will have another lockdown though.
Other countries have less cases and are in full panic mode, but I guess they are not as vaccinated as here.
We still wear them in shops, and I do on public transport though that is rare. I have not been wearing them in classes, but in B’s music class she does not go near anyone else and we sit far back from everyone. At another class I probably should, but no one else does… When it’s time to sing we sat at the back of the bunch.
It sounds more like ‘iggle iggle iggle’ or something else I guess, but I think that is what she is trying to say.
She’s been saying Dada and Dad for so long, though she doesn’t really say it at Tiago much. She is growing up fast though.
Despite my nervousness I am excited to see her with her sister.
24 weeks pregnant with B comparison:
This shoot was a bit bad. It was definitely a day when I was struggling with ideas…
It’s funny now as it’s gone from being a toy that we bought to it being B’s toy that she does interact with from time to time.
B has only really started to interact with the toys she had then, quite recently. Especially cuddly toys.
We aren’t going to do the hypnobirthing course again, but I have the book of it which we are both planning to read again. I need to get on with it really as time is flying by…
I downloaded an app to monitor kicks but I have only used it once. This baby seems more active, so I feel reassured. I am being kicked/punched right now…
