Pregnancy Patter - 26 Weeks...The Christmas Edition

Firstly MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope you all had an amazing time full of love and laughter.

Yes, I know, I'm 2 days late. I did wish everyone a Merry Christmas on Facebook and Twitter and I had plans to write a post but time (and illness) didn't allow.

Secondly, dear readers, an apology.

2 weeks ago I promised you a bump picture in this update and I've failed. I have a good excuse though - I've been poorly again this last week. I went downhill fast, managed to get through Christmas Day and then crashed into a bed-ridden state yesterday. Matt has been really ill too so it hasn't been a totally great Christmas in our house, sadly. I've actually got up out of bed today but still not feeling great. We were supposed to go to Nottingham to visit the inlaws Boxing Day but so far, we haven't made it. We are hoping to go tomorrow.

Mini Cheddar has been so well behaved. She has a cold but has been feeling okay despite having to have her nose wiped every second of the day. We felt so bad for her yesterday as she was just left to her own devices whilst Matt and I did relay sleeping as we both felt terrible.

Still, on the positive side, at least (hopefully) all our illnesses will be gone in time for the holiday next week.

Back to the pregnancy...I'm still suffering with heartburn but oddly I haven't had it as bad as I would have expected after overloading on meat, brussell sprouts, cheese and cake etc. Baby is still partying hard inside - making me wince sometimes it's so uncomfortable.

I have a midwife appointment first thing tomorrow morning just to check everything is okay before we go away. I'm hoping to find out which way the baby is as I'm convinced this one is breech again like MC.

Matt and I are starting to panic a bit about space in the house. Christmas has brought an influx of toys and games to the house - far too many. Come April we will have a baby and I dread to think how much stuff next Christmas. When we return from Florida we are going to have to do some serious sorting out. At least the nursery is decorated and so is MC's new bedroom so that's a weight off our minds.

Yes I'm still in two minds over the whole VBAC v's elective caesarean section but I've promised myself I'm going to forget about it for the next few weeks and just enjoy the break away.

So sorry about the rubbish update but I'm hoping this picture will make up for it. This is MC taken Christmas morning with one of her presents over her PJ's. This is what has kept me going through feeling rubbish...

p.s. Whilst I'm away in January I have 7 great bloggers lined up with some fab guest posts for your reading pleasure. Really looking forward to show-casing some of my blogging friends to you...more news on that next week and I promise a bump picture next time *hangs head*

Nope that wasn't a rubbish update. I do enjoy your pregnancy patter posts. It's nice to know what someone a few weeks ahead of me has been up to!
Interesting to read about your heartburn. I had awful heartburn with my daughter but haven't experienced any with this one yet. Fingers crossed it stays away but we'll see.
And also scary to hear you have your nursery and MC's rooms sorted already. We've been doing some serious chatting about what we plan to do with the rooms but not actually done anything constructive yet. And don't get me started on space. Our house isn't tiny but it feels like it's full. Goodness knows where all the baby stuff is going to go!!
Looking forward to seeing your bump pic soon x x x

Aww so sorry that you've not been well again, it sounds like you need to really take it easy over the next few days so you can all enjoy the holiday.  The toy thing is mad isn't it? I remember Angel's bedroom just being completely full, between her kitchen, and all her baby born stuff.  But is only lasts a few years, then the floor will be covered in clothes...

Oh yes we need to see your bump! I want to see how huge yours is!! he he. I think it looks huge because you are so petite though hun :-). I wrote in my post about being glad I am not taking a flight but I expect your toddler will be more compliant than mine. I hope you all have a fantastic time in Florida and I hope that you feel better by then...which I am sure you will. A bit of sunshine will be just the tonic you need! xx

Thanks Hannah. Look after yourself and bump whilst I'm away xx

SAHMlovingit said...

Haha, I remember those days myself (just about) xx

Don't panic too much - we have only painted the rooms, MC is sorted in hers with her new furniture but we are still to do the baby room, it's just a dumping ground at the moment. We just wanted to get them painted so there's less to do in February/March when we get back from the holiday :) Look after yourself and bump whilst I'm away xx

MC is sooo cute. I am loving the Minnie Mouse ears!

I hope you all feel better soon and bring out the bump pics!! Have an amazing holiday too. xxx

Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one

responses? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or
anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

Hey excellent blog! Does running a blog such as
this take a large amount of work? I have no understanding of programming but
I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways,
if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.
I understand this is off subject but I simply needed to ask.

Appreciate it!
