Third trimester has been quite kind to me so far but this week I have felt properly pregnant. As the day draws to an end my waddle becomes more pronounced until I am virtually a cripple just before bed! I cannot complain though as this point last time I was a cripple all day long so this is a great improvement. I am still in shock that I am sleeping well and it is only my bladder which wakes me. Little E took joy in kicking the bed all night which left me sleep deprived watching CSI reruns at 4am. I am forever thankful to this baby for letting me rest!
Eloise is now in her big girl bedroom and we are sorting out the nursery. Mum came up to help me think about what we need for bump and start packing my bags - bit freaked out at the idea of three nights in the hospital post C section after receiving no help with Little E first time round. Can't imagine doing it alone for longer whilst recovering from surgery too... I wish Husband could stay on the ward to help with the night feeds and changes.
Today is New Year's Day and I that means I am have exactly 14 days left at work (gulp). I stayed it up until midnight (Yaay!) but three sips if champagne when Big Ben chimed gave me heartburn (Boo!). I hope 2014 is the kind of year I can look back on and smile about with a little less if that 'we made it in one piece' feeling which seems to accompany being a parent! Happy New Year! Xx
