32 Weeks – The Pink Dilemma

Symptoms //

  • My fatigue from the 1st trimester is back… bring on the 200g/day of caffiene!
  • I can’t sit for longer than an hour and a half due to pain
  • Getting a bit of pressure in my lower half…
  • Gas pain, woots.

Cravings //

  • Nothing at the moment, but I’m definitely looking forward to my vegan wraps at lunch time

For some odd reason, most stores seem to believe that just because I’m having a girl, it means that I want to deck her out with pink. Pink stockings, pink dresses, pink sleepwear, pink snowsuits… and so on. This is my statement to all companies making clothing for babies: Please use colors other than pink.

Cravings //

I am now 31 weeks pregnant which means it’s time to start getting all of our stuff sorted for the arrival of our munchkin. The only issue is, we cannot for the life of us decide on a pram/travel system.

29 Weeks Pregnant – Can We Panic Now?

Symptoms //

  • Still Hungry
  • Baby is starting to kick more now
  • Hooray swollen gums!

Cravings //

  • Still going crazy for sweets

This whole pregnancy is going way too freaking fast and I fear squirrel friends, that I’ve entered panic mode. It’s been really busy around our house as we’re still decorating and gathering things like bookshelves/etc. We also have a massive fan gathering on Saturday which we’ve been planning for. Tomorrow we have a couch and two bookshelves coming so hopefully that’ll clear up some space in our office and perhaps even get some of the stuff our of our nursery.

Genie Bras; Good Purchase or Not?

Ugh, starting to get to the point now where I might need to get some maternity shirts. I’ve managed to stick with my pre-pregnancy trousers for thmoment while the belly bands hold them up. I think it’s mostly thanks to my mile walk to and from work everyday. I thankfully have some pretty steep hills to climb which offers some nice conditioning. On top of that I’ve been doing my 7 minute trainer app (Which is actually really almost 20 minutes…) on my phone with modified moves every other day so hopefully I haven’t really gained too much extra weight on top of my baby weight.

25 Weeks – Pregnancy Pillow Review

I move a lot in my sleep. I was once known for performing martial arts on unsuspecting sleep partners. Thankfully after spending about 3 years on a single bed with my husband while we sorted out our house, I’ve managed to train my sleep self to stay put, however, with the pregnancy, I’ve found that I still have a few issues that need sorting.

First off, I love sleeping on my stomach. For me it just feels amazing. I can snuggle my way into a ball of warmth and snuggles. So at around 12 weeks, I needed to give up my ball of comfort and instead sleep on my side. The only issue was that I kept finding myself turning onto my back. Granted in the first trimester I didn’t really care that much as all of the birthing apps/blogs told me that it was fine. Then once I began to grow, I decided perhaps it was time to start forcing myself down on my side and man did it hurt.

My Favorite Pregnancy Films

Ever since I was little, I’ve had a fascination with pregnancy. I loved the idea of becoming a mother and wanted more than anything to experience it myself… that is, without the wonderful symptoms that I’ve come to learn about with my own pregnancy…

With that I’ve always loved films about pregnancy. To be fair, a lot of the films that are around for pregnant women aren’t really realistic, but I still love them anyways and I find myself wanting to watch these films even more since I actually am pregnant. Regardless of how bizarre or far-fetched. Here’s a list of my favorite pregancy related films.

24 Weeks Pregnant – My Baby is a Cantaloupe

I do love these apps telling me how big my baby is compared to fruit/veggies. According to TheBump app, now my baby is the size of a cantaloupe which I would think is getting pretty big. I keep peeking ahead to see what my baby will be like next week and the week after. In small way I kind of wish that I wish that I was having twins and that Coconuts were a size on the chart. Would give me the perfect opportunity to annoy everyone by singing “I’ve Got a Lovely bunch of coconuts” every day for a week, but alas, I am content with my one little cantaloupe.
