Well, this has been a pretty uneventful week in my pregnancy! I’m sorry it doesn’t make for particularly interesting reading but I’m pleased to be free from the worry of the past few weeks.
I’ve worked a few days this week and as ever the children have been interested in my pregnancy. I must admit I have played the pregnancy card a few times; “It would be a really big help children if you could make sure everything is picked up off the floor so that I don’t need to bend down lots at the end of the day…” Bless them they are so keen to help make life a bit easier!
I’ve been able to feel the baby move around a lot more this week, even when I’ve been standing up and teaching which I hadn’t been able to before – I suppose the baby is getting bigger and her movements more pronounced so even when I’ve been concentrating on other things I’ve been able to feel them.
Hubby has also been able to feel the baby moving more which has been really nice, although I have noticed lumps and bumps sticking out of my belly as the baby moves which is a bit strange! I’m looking forward to hopefully being able to tell which bit is which, but I must admit I have no idea at the moment!
On Saturday I met up again with the ladies from pregnancy yoga for a cuppa in our local community cafe. Although I’ve stopped the yoga now (the midwife and I talked about it and we think the pains I was having may have been pulled muscles – I think I am just rubbish at yoga and was being too gung-ho!) we’ve got a little Facebook group and have been arranging to meet up once every few weeks for a couple of hours. We’re really lucky as we’re all due within the same six-week period so it’s lovely being able to chat to others at the same point in their pregnancy and compare notes!
I’ve also spent a fair bit of this week filling in the forms for Maternity Allowance, so I’ll write a post on that soon!
