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!
Even the best sleepers can have their off nights…
…and these are exhausting to the previously lucky parents who are used to a good sleeper.
Heartburn can strike even when you’ve not been eating.
That 33 weeks into a second pregnancy is a good time to stop training at the gym and switch to training only at home.
That, according to my midwife, I should have written my birth plan by now and that, according to Baby Centre, I should be packing my hospital bag this week – eek and double eek!
