How far along?: 38 weeks and 2 days Total weight gain/loss: I think about 10 kilos in total. The midwife weighed me at my appointment on Tuesday but she was quite willing to weigh me fully clothed and wearing my big winter boots. I insisted on taking them off beforehand, but as this is only the second time she’s weighed me throughout the pregnancy, it all seems a little arbitrary anyway. Stretch marks?: Not sure if there are more of them or if they’re just widening and darkeningRead More
This week, I learned that… or more accurately, remembered what Braxton-Hicks contractions feel like – urgh a toddler’s night terrors are pretty upsetting for a parent to witness (and I only hope that Little O doesn’t know/remember that he has them) my shopping time has now been shortened to 60 minutes max one way to brighten up a cold (-8 degrees – brrrr!)

How far along?: 36 weeks and 3 days Total weight gain/loss: Who knows! What I do know is that I feel huge and only getting bigger each day… Stretch marks?: Oh yes, many. Luckily, I cannot see them too often as they’re hidden away down underneath my belly. Sleep: Random. Some nights are good, others bad. Generally, the good nights follow on from a bad night, because I am exhausted and just crash out. Best moment this week: Husband and Little O returning from their extended break down inRead More
This week, I learned that… baking macarons is still fun but also still time-consuming, with still a lot to learn I am starting to understand Twitter a bit more now gyermek is a very active and wriggly little baby – cannot wait to see what that translates into after birth, given that Little O is a little ball of energy but did not move this much when I was carrying him the apartment feels very empty without said little ball of energy… Roll on tomorrowRead More
This week, I learned that: bending down can earn you a short, sharp kick to the ribs (ouch!) third trimester tiredness will kick in anyway, despite you taking iron supplements baking macarons is challenging but as much fun as I hoped it would be the decision to stop work three weeks before the due date was a good one after all!
