33 weeks: Bumpdate

33 weeks

Feeling: I have felt really pregnant this week. My busy weekend really left me a bit broken and it took a few days for me to get over it. I’m really not used to this taking it slow malarkey!

I also had a day in London on a TV shoot with work, followed by a day and a half at the Britmums conference in London and this afternoon I’ve had to have a nap to catch up a bit, I’m just feeling really low on energy and doing anything really takes it out of me.

I’m getting some of those late pregnancy symptoms now – my feet are swelling, the heartburn is increasing, I’m getting breathless really easily and my limbs, I’ve got piles (sorry, probably TMI!) are heavy after any level of exercise, even just walking up the stairs!

But on the upside, Little R-M seems to be very active and I can now see it moving in my tummy quite often. Mr M has seen and felt the movement more this week and we are starting to get super excited about our new arrival.

Appointments: None this week

Looking: Huge. I caught my reflection in a window as I walking through London this week and barely recognised myself! I think Little R-M is packing on the lbs now.

Craving: Salty foods like crisps and peanuts

Sleeping: Very well this week. Other than a bit of cramp and some bad dreams waking me up along with the usual toilet breaks, I have been getting some solid sleep in, largely, I think, because I’ve been so tired.

Baby is the size of: A pineapple
Baby is the size of:
