I got some baby bump blues.
My belly just isn’t looking like the perfect round bump that you would expect around this time of pregnancy. I am feeling like I am a big blob and that everyone around me thinks so too. I can see the difference and when I am alone and baby is kicking I feel really positive but when I am out and about and I catch my reflection I just think I look fat.
It’s getting me down.
I am looking forward to baby having a growth spurt so my belly will be more appealing. God, I can’t believe I am even thinking such things.
The pregnancy isn’t about me and my body, it is about the little munchkin I am growing. Why can’t I remind myself of that more?
I know he is super healthy and I am feeling pretty good besides the occasional aches and pains. I should be more grateful.
Gosh what a positive post.
I had a bit of an emotional week as you can probably tell. I finished work, which was kind of an anti-climax. I work inside a shopping centre and I was on the closing shift. I finished up, walked out the door, and no-one really said anything to me. No grand goodbye, no farewell party…nothing at all. I came home and felt a bit weird.
The next day I sat on the toilet and cried, like ugly cried. So many things going through my mind, so many hormones…
On a lighter note…
I am feeling baby a lot more in the evening or when I sit still. It’s nice to feel him in there. Hubby is still waiting to feel him kick, which will be nice when he finally does.
TMI alert: My boobies are getting even bigger and my nipple area is getting a lot darker. Which is kind of scary haha. My mum said it would happen but I didn’t believe her. Of course mother knows best.
Hubby and I bought a cot and change table on ebay, and picked that up over the weekend. We were pretty happy with the overall condition and we might just give it a fresh coat of paint before bub arrives.
I think thats it for now 🙂
