I know Mama_moose i keep a secret beady eye on you because we're due the same day (even though i KNOW how ridiculous that is!
). DD was 11 days overdue so i'm not really convinced of the 9 weeks, but equally i kind of think if i was due TODAY i'd know i only had a few days or weeks to go, rather than months....
I'm sleeping ok, once i GET to sleep. This LO just wakes up and kicks as soon as i lie down, and when i'm lying on my side seems to be when it has the most wriggle-room. The other night DH was laying spooning me with one hand on my bump and said "wow, that's amazing! How do you sleep with that going on?" and i was like "i am NOT asleep, i am WIDE AWAKE, that's the POINT!"
Then he kissed my neck and thanked me for "being his baby's caravan".
what a sweetie. Although, CARAVAN!? i really must be wide from the back (he is perpetually telling me how beautiful i am!). Luckily i have a large iron bladder so i don't have to get up to pee in the night, hardly ever.
My main thing this week is that i can no longer eat. Every meal i am starving and put out a big portion and then get a quarter way through and have to stop. I too have heartburn all. day. long and because of my thyroid issue i'm limited as to what i can take for it (basically liquid gaviscon, which tastes to me like someone chewed an aniseed ball and a stick of chalk and then SPIT the pulp into the bottle. YAK!). DH knows how bad it is when i take gaviscon! Today i've given up and had ridiculous food - a muffin (sent over by MIL last night) for breakfast, a muffin at 11.45am (by chance, in a coffee shop where i didn't want to spend a ton and DD wanted to share a muffin) and just now, at around 3.30pm, some cereal and milk! This baby is NOT getting good vitamins from my diet right now!
It's DD's birthday tomorrow and i'm going to visit XP with DH and DD to sit in the room, on the bed where she was born and think about that for a bit. Time flies, i know that, and i'm sooooo looking forward to hugging my baby, and kissing little toes and nursing in the quiet nights when you and the babe are the only people in the world...
