HOW AM I FEELING: I'm still not feeling too bad but I am starting to experience a few of the third trimester discomforts. I'm still working full time so finding my back is getting quite sore by the end of the day and also have a tendency to wake up about 3am and then having trouble getting into a comfortable position to go back to sleep. Last night I was sitting on the couch and had some tightening pains again which I am guessing are braxton hicks. I don't know what happened to them being painless!
WEIGHT GAIN: I now weigh 68.2kg which is approx 8kg weight gain all up and 1kg in the last fortnight.
CRAVINGS/AVERSIONS: All things sweet! My taste buds have really started to change and I just crave sweet foods which isn't good for the waistline and is the total opposite to me as I am normally a savoury person. Croissants with raspberry jam, apricot pies, chocolate brownies . . . mmmm! Yum!
MOVEMENT: He seems to have dropped right down and I half expect an arm to make it's way out the way he's going! It's starting to feel like he's trying to escape and while I love feeling him move it is getting mighty uncomfortable as I constantly feel like I need to go to the toilet and at times feel like I'm going to leak with the pressure he is putting on my bladder! The movements are incredibly low down now, it's quite a weird sensation.
OTHER UPDATES: The nursery is nearly painted! It's all been plastered up and the first coat of paint is on the walls and ceiling. The room will be painted in time to be moving the furniture in over Easter so the HG is going to have fun putting everything together. I think I will leave the house and hide while this is going on, patience is not one of his virtues! Poor guy has to put together the cot, bassinet, change table and toy box as all those items came flat packed in boxes. I then get to start the fun part - decorating!
UPCOMING MILESTONES: I should get my results for my glucose test and a myriad of other tests they did so fingers crossed those all come back normal, We are also up to fortnightly midwife visits which is exciting, time is closing in on us and this little man will be here in no time! Can't believe it's nearly May already!
