Week 25 – Day 3

I’ve had a really nice weekend with just the right amount of activities, although the hormones and mood has still been a bit up and down. On Saturday we drove down to Rotterdam for a friends housewarming. I didn’t know very many of the people there but we’re definitely entering another era of life, there were 4 babies under 6 months there, and another person who’s pregnant. It was quite a lot to take in and a lot of baby talk, and I felt completely overwhelmed in the evening. On the upside it’s nice to see how couples with such young babies are still going round to peoples houses and socialising and having a good time.

I had another little dip that evening about how different everything will be, and how I’m scared of losing myself, and ourselves as a couple. I guess there is no way I can actually prepare for this though, so need to just accept that change will happen, and take it as it comes.

We also planned the logistics a bit for the start of next year. There are so many people I want to get around to and and see and introduce the baby to! Not sure how tiring it’ll be to travel a lot, but I’m sure as hell am gonna try to make the most of it.

Yesterday we headed out to the imax to see Dunkirk which everyone’s been raving about. It was really different for a war film, but really good. Cried a lot as usual, but these day’s I can’t tell if it’s because I was genuinely affected by it, or cause of the hormones!

Week 25 – Day 0

I know I say this every week but daym time is flying! 


I feel significantly heavier, think I’m on +6 kg by now and my lower back is noticing! Lying in bed for too long in the morning is no longer nice and on the sofa I need an extra back support pillow to be  comfortable.

We’re going camping next weekend and I really wonder how my body will cope with two nights on a camping mattress! Will be fun though for sure πŸ™‚

The last week there’s been a lot of news and changed to my little world here and in my emotional state they have been tricky to accept, but all will be good and change is usually not the end of the world! 

Week 24 – Day 6

This morning ended in a big crying breakdown… So many changes are happening all at once and I guess it triggered something. I’m so happy I have Dave by my side ❀

Wrore a little something about it on the other blog.

Week 24 – Day 3

I’m loosing track of time, and which week I’m in, everything seems to be flowing into on continuous stretch. But I do know that tomorrow is August, and that was a bit of a shock to realise. It feels not long ago that we were in April/May and I was thinking it was an age until I would be this far along. I still don’t know what to expect and I still don’t feel particularly ready or prepared, maybe it’ll never happen.

After the week back in Sweden it was really nice to be back in the flat yesterday. Nothing beats your own bed really, does it.

This week is a pretty uneventful one in terms of pregnancy. No appointments or check-ups. Just prodding along. Next week we will pass the 100 day mark, and we have our next check-up. But until then there’s not much happening. I’m pretty happy with just continuing the way it’s going tough. Baby is kicking and rolling around every day, so I know she’s there. She’s most active after every time I eat, so morning, after lunch and in the evening. I wonder if she can feel the weight of the stomach pushing down on her?

Week 24 – Day 2

It feels like a lot has happened since last week’s bump picture! There’s a proper belly now! 

Being home has been super chill and the week has gone by way too fast. But we’ve got some useful things done, like figuring out which pram to get! Tried a bunch in the shop here, actually the weight and seeing how they fold in real life. 

Plus with all the stuff from my mum we’ve made a bit of a dent in that list! 

Week 23 – Day 4

It is so so nice to be home!! And it’s so fun to see how excited my parents are about the baby coming! We went through some old stuff in the basement yesterday, and some of things from the 80’s is so on point hipster today that it’s insane. I was gonna by a new sling, but the one my mum had is so cool! Definitely need to use it πŸ™‚

Unfortunately I have to work for a couple of hours every day, but will make the most of being home and relaxing anyway πŸ™‚ Already managed a trip to Saluhallen for lunch with my two favourite Daves!

Week 23 – Day 1

Gong to MalmΓΆ on Monday and I’m so excited! Have no clue why I would have booked a Monday afternoon flight rather than today, but oh well. A quick little update and bump pic for today I think πŸ™‚

Check me out, proper little bump! Some evenings mu stomach feels so stretched I honestly don’t know how it’s supposed to grow more. But I’m sure I’ll look back at this thinking that I’m tiny right now in comparison. So what’s happening?

  • Rash is spreading… and itching like crazy! Gonna call the docs on Monday and see if I can get a same day appointment, and hopefully some hydrocortisone cream prescribed. I just keep itching it :/
  • For the first time yesterday I felt really really tired from walking for 10 minutes. Not in pain or uncomfortable, just out of breath…
  • Made a more comprehensive list that my old one, and actually started researching all the things to see if we need them need them or if it’s just an item that consumerism is trying to sell us. There are surprisingly many useless things out there that are labelled as a “must have”.
  • I feel like I look awful with clothes on, but awesome in underwear or naked! Wish I could just walk around with no clothes all the time πŸ™‚
