Omg. I literally only just realised that I missed out my 26 week update! My memory and thought process is so bad at the moment, I blame baby brain!! (I’ll use it as an excuse whilst I can anyways!;))
These past 2 weeks have been pretty interesting, pregnancy wise. I’ve had no more water infections (for now) so thats always a plus! Nothing out of the ordinary really happened during my 26th week. I decided to buy the MaxiCosi FamilyFix isofix base for the car seat that I got! Just because I wasn’t 100% comfortable with the way the car seat fit into my car using the seat belt so I got that from Halfords for £149.99! This base can also be used with the MaxiCosi Pebble for when they’re a bit bigger 🙂
I’m not sure if I mentioned in my 25th week update that normal bras are beginning to become a nuisance! But they are! deffo. Its painful! I really need to get some wireless ones.. I’m not sure whether I need another fitting or to just buy wireless ones in the same size as my last fitting.. I’ve been fitted since I’ve been pregnant so I’m sure It’d be okay.
Going on to 27 weeks, I had my first lot of Braxton Hicks this week (I believe.) I had to ring the midwife because I had a little bleeding. (TMI, I know. But isn’t that what pregnancy is all about?! ;)) But I’ve had no more so thats nothing to be concerned about 🙂 I also ordered my baby changing unit which got delivered yesterday! my room seriously right now is bags, suitcases, boxes and clothes. I can not wait until this Thursday! I’ll have all of my furniture set up and ready 🙂 I got my unit from mothercare its the Padstow one I believe and cost me £250.00 although online it says £255.00 but I’m not complaining 😉 here is where you can find it!:
I got it in white 🙂
He has been moving soo much this week, I can feel him literally right over on my right side it’s like he has no space in there and he’s literally the length of me! Everyone keeps asking me if i’ve decided on a name yet, which I still haven’t. Which is pretty annoying because I want to get those beautiful blankets from ‘The cuddle company’ they personalise them for you and I really want one before he’s hereeee! If anyone has any nice names that aren’t too common that would be appreciated 😉 My bump feels so big to me now, even though the parents at work are telling me that I’m small! My family think different but I think that’s because my work clothes are baggier on me and my family are used to seeing me smaller, I guess the parents never took any notice before haha!
I saw my midwife last week, they don’t do much do they? I thought they did a lot more.. She took my blood pressure and found baby’s heartbeat and thats about it! I did have my flu jab and whooping cough jab though.. although I didn’t really get much warning about that.. I turned up for my appointment and there was a nurse there waiting and she basically asked me on the spot if I wanted them. So I didn’t really get the chance to talk to anyone about it, I’ve been fine since though – no flu or cold or anything! Touch wood!!
This week I got my very first dose of heartburn. I’ve had it every day since! Been having rennies, it seems to be every time I eat anything. Oh my gosh it burns! Still no stretch marks though 😀
I got him some more clothes last weekend too! But I think there are a few clothes that I haven’t posted here so next week when I have my furniture I’ll probably get it all sorted and show you then 😀
I’ll be seeing her again this Thursday, my last appointment was well over due so to keep on track I have to go and see her again. Hopefully won’t take too long because I’ll be busy sorting my room out! 😛 tomorrow I need to go shopping, probably going to buy my changing bag because I want to use that as my hospital bag. I have no clue on what I need to put in it! apart from like pjs for me, some clothes to come home in, some clothes for baby, nappies etc. Flip flops for the shower – deffo. Is there anything that anyone found essential but something you really wouldn’t think of? I know I need sanitary towels/maternity pads.. Eek help!
