27 weeks tomorrow

Posted by White-Lily , 24 May 2012 · 425 views

Time is going really quickly now. Third Trimester starts today apparently!

Bub is busy most days, growing well and wiggling about. Pregnancy is so fr going perfectly, no huge complaints. GD test is done (last week), haven't heard the results but I'm sure I would have heard by now if I had failed.
Heartburn is pushing the boudaries of my medication which is awful. Every morning after I ahve my tablet it comes back for an hour of so of intense burning. I dont know if I should see about incresaing my dosage already or not. Its not fun but its still bearable.
I'm getting big (duh) and am starting to find things hard - putting my shoes/socks on, lifting DD, pushing trolley with DD and groceries in it.

Only about 5 weeks left of work and then I can take my time doing things. Getting the groceries wont be a rushed job on the way home from work. I really cant wait to not work. I'm a bit over it. No matter how hard I work there always seems to be some huge problem or something else that I'm expected to sort out before I go on leave. I really am not sure if the girl who is taking over can do the job but she deserves a shot having been here for 6-8 months already. I don't even know if I really care ATM. I have come back to a mess once before and fixed it up so I can just do that again if needed. Also I don't think one person can actually cope with the work load... I know I struggle when she isn't here to help out with random things so I don't know how she will go without a helper. I have voiced my concerns numerous times to M but he hasn't really done anything about it and he is on leave for the next 4 weeks so is unlikely to do anything about it either. He will come back and freak out when he realises I am only working for a week after he is back... Not my problem. I have done what I can. Its not my place to do anything further.

DH has been working super hard. They are about to/trying to pick up this new huge contract so he is home late most nights and he has been going to site every week which means he is gone for 2-3 days a week as well. Its lonely. I forgot how lonely it is a night time when you have no one to talk to. Don't get me wrong, I do like the time to myself I just wish it wasn't so often and that I wasn't doing the whole dinner/bed routine alone almost every night. DD sees his car missing and asks if we will see him today, it sucks telling her no but I do know that it could be much worse. Living for the weekends!

Speaking of DD, she is sick. Not sure if it is just a bad cold or if it is a chest infection or just the asthma playing up. Pretty sure I will take her to the Dr this arvo just to get her checked out. She seemed to be breathing hard last night but she was pretty worked up about us giving her panadol and her puffer. I hate not knowing. DH says its just a cold and she is always like this but I dont know. She is reportably fine during the day, just the nasty sounding cough and clear runny nose. So I dont know if she plays it up for me - do 3yo's know how to do this?? - when I pick her up coz all she wants to do is lay on me and cuddle me and is terribly whingy. Fine for DH but maybe he glosses over it? Maybe I allow it becuase I think she feels sick?

Anyway... something a bit nicer to end...
It was my birthday last week and on the weekend DH took me to the C Restaurant (revolving restaurant) - it was amazing! The food was delicious, the view of the city was amazing, company was wonderful (just DH)  biggrin.gif
He surprised me with a special birthday dessert which he had arranged when he booked dinner. it was so lovely. He still surprises me with his thoughtfulness. Gosh I love him so much. wub.gif

Wow! nice experienced! I just thought of how expensive Baby products could be? Everything must be all planned as in reality baby products cost a fortune when all combined together from clothing, foods, etc. and all is worth it when baby grown up fit. http://www.thepurpleblog.com/?p=40

Hey, any expected mom feels the same. The world is not your responsibility. Taking care of your baby by taking proper care of yourself during pregnancy is the single most important responsibility for you. So, give yourself a break and enjoy each moment with your little life inside you. Just let the office or anyone go to hell.
