12 WEEKS LEFT! 3 months, and that’s only until her ‘estimated’ due date! I honestly never though I would be a mum and now I’m only 3 months away from a lifetime of holding my daughter.
This week hasn’t been a rough one at all, seems as though everything has settled back to normal, pregnancy normal of course. After nipple drama last week I could definitely use a little bit of normality (It’s all healed up now, thankfully no pain or any other issue). I’m still getting sore hips and legs if I am walking around too much. Too much being the weekly Asda shop! Whilst the snowy weather has been far far FAR too cold, it’s also been great news for me. I’m really hoping the summer weather stays away for as long as possible. I’m already a waddling whale (what a sight that would be), I don’t want to be adding sweaty beast into the mix. I’m all good for a bit of spring though, lovely bright days with a cool breeze. Just don’t come for me with the heat for a good while. Please and thanks.
We had another scan this week and heard her heart beat again. She’s so big now! 2 lbs 14 ozs, I thinks she’s on the higher end of average and I’m guessing that’s her head. Lord help me, myself and my partner have very large heads. We seen her little tummy moving up and down, she’s learning to breathe on her own and if that isn’t blooming adorable I don’t know what is. Maybe, the fact that she already looks like a mini me. Is it too soon to say she has my nose?
I’ve kept working on drinking more water and I think I have got it nailed down now. Someone on my last pregnancy update advised I add a little bit of fruit with it and that turned out to be a great idea and has really helped me. I have been swapping between that and adding a couple of drops of Peach squash as a treat and it’s worked perfectly. I’ve also been eating enough fruit to keep Asda in business solely from myself. I have had a few bowls of fruit that have been covered in double cream, not sure that counts as healthy? I’m thinking I just need to add more veg into my diet and I should be pretty good for now. I might switch my midday snack/lunch for a salad?
Finally Peachy girl has a name! In reality with only 11 weeks to go it’s about time. I’m a planner, so not having a name for this long has been driving me insane. I’m pretty sure this is going to be her name, as it’s very appropriate to our situation. I haven’t told all of my family yet, plus I will still be calling her Peach for now anyway so I’ll possibly put up a post with her name and how/why we chose it this week, so keep a look out!
