Week 28 – Day 4

Yesterday we were down to 80 days left. We got so much stuff this weekend from people, mostly pink stuff, but I guess we can balance it out ourselves with other bits. Saying that though, if we even have another baby after this, we’re definitely keeping gender a secret! It amazing and a bit terrifying how people treat little boys and girls differently… even people our age. I guess it’s a lot to do with culture.

Anyhow, I got a pregnancy massage booked in after work today! Not sure what it’ll be like, but I’l excited to go anyway 🙂 gonna be nice and relaxing I hope!

AND!! We ordered a pram! Read that delivery time can be quite long, and they were correct… 1-2 months before it arrives. So currently it’s estimated to come mid October, but could get here as late as early November… which means that if she comes early we’ll just have to manage without one for a while. But at least we’ve got it over and done with now. So that’s the second (and final) big purchase ticked off the list! The only thing left to do now is little bits and bobs that we still need, and sorting the actual baby room out so that we can stop piling stuff on to the desk, which now looks like a mountain of baby clothes and blankets.

I have a pretty good idea of what needs doing, but Dave said it might be nice to decorate/paint one of the walls… so gonna have a little look around for some inspo!


Week 13 – Day 1

Small meals work! Been waking up the last couple of days feeling almost normal! Then last night I had a massive meal with lamb kebabs and I don’t feel so good today. I think it was the first time this week I had solid chunks of meat, I’ve just not been into it at all. I mean, I’ve had ham, and fish… but steak and burgers and big pieces make me feel not so great.

Tonight is Eurovision finals(!) which is super exciting 🙂 so gonna head out an watch that later! I also means that it’s been almost a year since we got married. Tomorrow to be exact. Absolutely mental!

Yesterday me and Dave walked into one of those megastores with baby/family stuff, and the whole time I’m just panicking. The amount of stuff they try to sell you! And the prices!! How will any of this stuff fit into our life? Fit into our flat and who we are as people? I’m happy that we both agree on the minimalist approach and are not going to buy “stuff” unless we feel we need it. But the whole experience of seeing everything did chock me a bit. Not to mention the fact that 90% of stuff is split into pink or blue… and I don’t mean the clothes, I mean cots, changing tables and all accessories that you “need”.

So far we’ve only for two onesies. A “classy” sailor one, and one with whales on! Keeping it cool for now.

PS. One of my apps tells me I’ve entered the 2nd trimester, aka the “easy trimester”, but my other app says that it’s not til next week… Let’s see if this week is easy or not.
