No…it hasn’t just dawned on me that I’m up the duff and due to push something out of my vagina in (potentially) less than eight weeks. I’m well aware that I am pregnant…the massive beach ball on my front kind of gives that away.
The fact is today has been miserable.
I had the most relaxing acupuncture session yesterday afternoon which was delightful! My night wasn’t great – the usual having to get up for a wee in the night, issues turning over, night sweats, the bloody cat attacking my feet.
But when I woke this morning I was in pain!
Usually it manifests itself in my back and hips but this time it has come back in my pubic bone. All day at work I was uncomfortable. I felt sick, tired, achy and I started getting dull period type pains too. So I did what every normal pregnant woman does – no I didn’t ring my midwife – I consulted Dr Google!
Apparently I was suffering from PGP and potentially Braxton Hicks! Great stuff.
Combine that with my low iron levels and fluctuating blood pressure (around the low to normal mark) it has made for a great day! Of course, I have been a little trouper and dealt with clients all day long, but I really wanted to go home to bed.
Kris cooked me a lovely meal. Yes I ate bloody steak, which apparently is bad for pregnant women, but I have been told I need to. Add iron-rich kale and broccoli and I was feeling so much better!!!
I have probably been over-doing it. Hard not to when you have a toddler running around (or away from you!) but I definitely think that I need to start listening to my body and winding down.
Five weeks left at work and then maternity leave starts and I can get into the Christmas spirit…and the arrival of Baby Stock #2!
