Bump Watch: Week 40 – is today the day?

Today's the day! I've carried this little boy around with me every second of every day for the last nine months. He's meant to come out now, right? Right?! Wrong! Well, if he is making an appearance today, it'll have to be in the next three hours, which is incredibly unlikely. Those of you who… Continue reading Bump Watch: Week 40 – is today the day?

Bump Watch: Week 39 – pregnancy essentials

So it may be seven days until my due date but who knows when he's going to decide to make an appearance? No, really, who knows because it's killing me! I'd love it if he arrived beforehand, as long as it's on or after Saturday - any earlier than that and Luke will have to… Continue reading Bump Watch: Week 39 – pregnancy essentials

Bump Watch: Week 37 – writing my birth plan

Today I'm officially full-term and although he isn't technically 'due' for another three weeks, I honestly wouldn't mind if he made an appearance before then. I was initially excited to have a few weeks to myself before he arrives but if this pregnancy carries on as it is now, I reckon I'm gonna Hulk out… Continue reading Bump Watch: Week 37 – writing my birth plan

Bump Watch: Week 36 – maternity leave

Shit just got real! Tomorrow is my last day at work and this time next week I'll technically be full term. I'm adamant that this pregnancy hasn't 'flown by' but I still don't feel ready. Mainly because the baby's room and my hospital bag both still aren't ready. Luke reckons the baby's room isn't a… Continue reading Bump Watch: Week 36 – maternity leave

Bump Watch: Week 35 – summer maternity wear

It's my due date in five weeks - you can count the number of remaining weeks on one hand! But it still feels like forever away... I think once I hit 'full term' in two weeks it will feel a lot more real. In the meantime, each day gets a little harder, especially now that… Continue reading Bump Watch: Week 35 – summer maternity wear

Bump Watch: 29 weeks – pelvic dysfunction

It's been a week of lasts, as I start looking forward to all the firsts. First there was the last antenatal class last week (am I meant to feel ready to have a baby now? I bloody hope not!) and tonight is my last night in this yoga group - next week I make my… Continue reading Bump Watch: 29 weeks – pelvic dysfunction

Bump Watch: Week 16 – listening to the heartbeat!

By 16 weeks pregnant, you'd think morning sickness would be buggering off, right? Especially after my cockiness last week. But no, yesterday morning I was violently sick for the first time in over a fortnight. This baby better be good when it finally arrives, especially now that it's put me off my Lucky Charms cereal!… Continue reading Bump Watch: Week 16 – listening to the heartbeat!
