The Baby Diaries – Judah – Week Twenty-Nine (have you started maternity yet?)
My journal this week stated :
‘As you start winding down at work, make sure you have your maternity benefits sorted out. Even if you are working until close to your due date, it’s important to have it all in place as early as possible as it’s the last thing you need to worry about once you go on maternity leave.’
Ha, this is so funny. At this point we don’t even know where we are going to be living. My hypermobility is presenting a real problem and everyone keeps joking that I’ll need a zimmer frame. It was Easter this weekend so we had the girls with us at my parents still. Shayla was hilarious Easter morning, the preacher told us to talk to God in our own words at one point in the service, at this time 2 year old Shayla chirps up and started repeating ‘the end is coming, the end is coming.’ Very Grandpa Simpson esque. James and I were in stitches laughing, but it was also quite eery. Haha, funny toddlers.
Had an absolute melt down at my poor new husband, as we have no security and a baby coming really soon. We’re going to have to start looking for a new home, and it’s just all a bit overwhelming at this time. Panic and hormones are certainly playing a part.
My journal asked me :
‘How am I feeling this week?
Energy : pretty useless but got to stay with my Mum, so that was helpful
Mood : really down, about not having a home. I upset my lovely huband as I was stressed.
Appetite : average, eating toast in the middle of the night as I can’t go long without
Cravings : chinese, but eating what we’ve bought in
Sickness : quite bad but mainly due to stress’
I was sad when the girls had to go home but it was also nice to have a bit of peace, I am preparing myself for the fact that once little man comes, there will always be a child with us. They won’t have another home they need to go to. I will be a parent full-time, no days off.
I have a physio appointment finally coming up next week and I cannot wait. Tried the support bands and aquanatal etc. just not working for me. Hopefully they can shed some light on this hypermobility and how I can get through the rest of my pregnancy without being completely useless.
