What a dramatic tiring day yesterday. I woke up feeling like I caught Jon’s cold. And I was mocking him all weekend for being such a lazy one and he should just take a pill and dig into all the work we have to do. Coz I’m working away and I’m pregnant! Anyway I wasn’t so cocky on Monday morning, but I left for work. Slept all the way to London and felt really disoriented and tired when doing the train swaps. But I got to work, had some breakfast and drank loads of water to get the sickness out of me and also try and combat an oncoming water infection.
At like 11:30 though I felt so sick I had to run to the loo and I actually be sick… This made me super weak and shaky. I decided to call my midwife as quite a few of my symptoms were on a “symptoms never to ignore”-list that I have. My midwife wasn’t in and I was given a number to a midwife advice line. After speaking to them I was advised to come in to the Tunbridge Wells hospital. Which is very far, especially from Richmond where I work. I left work and went home. Was crying most of the way home and called Jon. Some combination of exhaustion, worry and self pity. Luckily Jon came home about the same time as me so we could leave quite soon. TW hospital was a mase and I started crying again because everything was so confusing and I didn’t know where to go. Just to illustrate my state of mind…. Massively hormonal.
Anyway after waiting for an hour and a half we finally got to see a lovely midwife. We monitored little Baby Waddell for a while and despite all the commotion, he was swimming around carefree. We even got a chance to record his heart beat.
Hours after leaving the office freshly emptied of all my stomach content I finally got home and could get to bed, the only thing I really wanted to do all day. My night’s sleep wasn’t great, but I had to take a sick day today and I seriously slept half the day. Very needed obviously.
Drama Monday yesterday, but we’re all well and that’s the main point. (well except for my cold but that will go away in a day or two)
There are two things I fear might happen in this pregnancy:
1. My hip gets dislocated
2. I fall down the stairs in our house
I dunno why I keep thinking about these two things so much. I mean anything could happen at anytime to anyone.
Maybe it’s normal with thoughts like these. You get very clumsy and unbalanced so tripping and falling happens daily almost. And even though it’s actually never happened my hips have threatened to dislocate all my life. So with extra lose joints and extra weight is even more sensitive.
I really hope it doesn’t happen, especially not the stairs as that could be devastating. But the hips, I’ve heard once they start dislocate that’s it.
How I’m doing with Idea Room‘s May photo challenge? Fine so far….
OK I feel SO pregnant today. SO 3rd trimester. And I sort of start longing for an end to it.
√ Pain sitting
√ Pain walking
√ Sensitive to all noises
I almost fell down the stairs as well. I FEEL SO SORRY FOR MYSELF!
Reusable nappies arrived, we have big hopes for them!
Nursery bag, really luv it
Dad to be
Had a stupid craving for fish fingers and curry sauce. Don't think they actually go together. We had it when we were kids, but I think maybe it was one of mum's inventions. Well if was resurrected in my kitchen this week.
This weekend was really busy. Got some packing done and clean out old stuff and put some stuff up for sale. Definitely need the extra cash injection now before the move.
I really feel I’ve entered into the third trimester. Heavy tiredness hits me as soon as I do anything. Walking up the stairs is a mission.
And Jon keeps asking “what’s up with the heavy breathing?”
He better get used to it, think it’s gonna stick around for another three months.
We went to Leeds castle today, just outside of Maidstone. It was such a lovely day and the ground around the castle were packed with people. We brought picnic, but also had the first ice cream of the year.
We sat and talked about plans and children. And rested a bit. Enjoyed the first bank holiday of May.
The in laws are visiting and we took a walk through town and down by the river yesterday. Tomorrow we’re going an outing so will bring my camera, if I remember!
