28 Week Pregnancy Update

Today I am 29 weeks and 1 day into my journey and have 76 days to go. Things are starting to get real around here!

I've been back in work this week and my symptoms have also come back, being sick some mornings and feeling tired constantly. My joints still aren't as bad as they have been *touches wood* which I am now putting down to the beautiful, dry weather we have been having. 

I've been back to eating normally following on from my stomach bug and gained 3lbs this week bringing my total weight change so far to -1lb.

We had a scare on Monday night resulting in a late night trip to the Hospital, I fell down the stairs! Thankfully everything was fine. I had my gestational diabetes, full blood checks and my 28 week Midwife appointment on Monday morning, all of which were fine. I had my Whooping cough jab on Thursday which bloody well hurts, my arm is still aching and I am still struggling to sleep on it! 

28 weeks + 1 day here, this is my maternity Christmas party dress from Peacocks which I am super happy with \\ We're attempting to get ourselves ready for this baby, we bought a few cute bits today as well as the essential car seat and base \\ Absolutely love my Grumpy Cat calendar picture for December! \\ My sister bought us a lovely photo frame for our scans.

I've had a very festive week, my decorations are slowly but surely going up (very slowly as I get tired easily). I've had three Christmas dinners in three days, nothing exciting, just Tesco cafe Friday lunchtime and today and Wetherspoons with the girls last night. I've gone off quite a lot of things during this pregnancy but a good old Christmas dinner (thankfully) isn't one of them, although I did have to give my pigs in blankets away as they do not do it for me right now.
