Wooah where has that bump come from? I feel and look so much bigger this week, I think baby has had a growth spurt. The bump is definitely looking more rounder and can be seen no matter what I'm wearing. I think I was about this size when I was around 34 weeks with Amelia which you can see here. This week baby boy is the size of an eggplant and roughly weighs around 2.25 lb and is about 14.8 inches long.
Finally got my appetite back this week which is good. Still not eating three meals a day but at least I'm eating I guess. I feel so bloated in the evenings though and my belly is always rock hard. I've put on 2 lbs since last week and now weigh 8st 2 lb so hopefully I will start gaining more weight now that I'm getting bigger. Although I'm not worried as I didn't gain much last time and Amelia was nearly a 10 pound baby.
Really need to get a hair cut, my hair is in such bad condition. A friend from work has kindly given me a voucher to some money off so I shall definitely book an appointment soon to get it thinned out and any split ends cut off. I really want to dye my hair too as I've not dyed it in around a year and it could do with some colour to it!
I'm finding it difficult to put socks on and have to remember I have a bump in the way when bending down etc. Especially at work, I keep on bending down to pick something up and usually loose my balance and look like a fool. I had my first customers at work ask when the baby was due this week, so I must definitely be showing more this time as last time people didn't even know I was pregnant until I had gone on maternity leave!
I've also been feeling slightly nervous about looking after two babies, how will I cope with all the sleepless nights again even though Amelia has finally started to sleep better she still gets up in the night so I am quite worried about that! Will I be able to manage my time and share it with both of them? Even though the nursery is nearly completed minus painting it and sorting out the wardrobe storage I still don't feel like we're ready. There's just 12 weeks left and as soon as Halloween is out of the way it will be Christmas and I'll be off work!
