My belly is growing hair and it is freaking me out.
I also can’t breathe properly and I seem to be going to the bathroom every half hour.
My little babe is perfecting their excellent karate moves, and quite frankly the strength behind each move is kind of shocking!
I had my first Midwife appointment this week, it was a private antenatal class which was quite good. Most of the information shared was information I had read or heard about from my sister or Mum, but as my Midwife was talking about my experience with my birth and my baby it really hit home.
There were tears and quite frankly I didn’t see that coming. I don’t cry easily, don’t really experience the happy tears and certainly don’t cry around people I don’t know! Yet here I was, picturing the moment I will meet our baby and I was overcome with emotions.
Truth be told I missed a fair bit of the information because my eyes kept tearing up at finally meeting our baby! The emotional hangover I had after the crying lasted the rest of the day and I actually had to go to bed early. Emotional wreck I tell you!
It is wild to know that we will meet our babe soon, I’m excited but nervous. I have two more weeks of work left before I start maternity leave.
I guess it’s nearly time to start planning my hospital stay!
What were your third trimester saviours?
