|Weeks 25 to 29|
|I am now 29 weeks pregnant - my how time is flying. Heres a quick update on what happened in the last month:|
Week 25: Braxton Hicks contractions are starting to happen all the time. They don't hurt but my tummy goes as tight as a rock. I find it happens particularly after lunch on my walk back from the mall and during the night. Starting to buy all the baby things on my checklist. I'm planning on having everything I need for bubs arrival at least a month before he is due so I'm not running around at the last second trying to figure out what I need. Got some very cute baby clothes - mainly bodysuits and all-in-ones.
Week 26: Little Bubba had hiccups for the first time - sooooo cute. Sent in day care forms for the local council long day care centres for next year (you have to send them in early or your odds of getting a place are much lower). I had no idea how to fill them in or how many days I need day care for. Not even sure I want to go back to work at all! Oh well, I can always reject the placement if it is offered to me. A family member went to hospital and our little nephew was baptised this week. Bought a whole heap of cloth nappies: prefolds, fitted nappies and covers online from Little Koala. They are so adorable. I can't wait to use them. Baby hiccupping is becoming more frequent.
Week 27: Bought some more covers off another member at the Essential Baby website. Have bid on a breast pump and food warmer plus a jeep carrycot/cocoon off ebay. Trying to save as much money as possible - becoming addicted to ebay. See Matt's purchases recently!
Week 28: Getting really sick of work. The boss won't hire anyone to replace me and has now gone overseas for a month. I'll only see hem for 2 weeks before I go on maternity leave so it's now guranteed that I have no one to hand over to. Oh well, not my problem. The @#$! will hit the fan as soon as I go. Re: day care - there may not be a company to go back to at this point! No biggy. The sick family member is now home from hospital and doing much better. My brother and his fiance are expecting their baby any day now. I bought a gorgeous "Baby Ski Patrol" outfit from Target for our bub. Also bought some more all-in-ones and a baby hat and mitten 3 pack from Big W. Will come in very handy when we go to the snow in August! Also bought a day time/night time half/half trial pack from Baby Beehinds. I want to compare brands of fitteds. I won the breast pump and food warmer and the carrycot/cocoon. Matts mum bought some more stuff for us as well and my mum has a trailer full of stuff to bring down from the coast (including the cradle).
Week 29: has only just started but we went to our first prenatal class yesterday on childbirth and labour. we learnt some things we didn't know and went on a tour of the birthing suite and the postnatal wards at the hospital so that was good. We have our next one this Saturday on parenting which I think will be even more beneficial since this is our first. Must say that RNSP is nicer than the SAN. I slept terribly last night - my worst night yet. had awful stretching pains, Matt was snoring due to a cold, it was raining, possums were going nuts on the roof and when I did fall asleep I was having nightmares. Hope I sleep better tonight.
