This is a place for me to record my thoughts on things as they happen. I aim to write a new entry every weekday. This probably wont happen though.

Neglect

I feel like I'm neglecting blogging at the moment... I'm not updating regularly and I'm not commenting on other peoples blogs. I do intend to sort this out. In my defence work is v.busy at the moment and when I get home I'm either too tired to turn on the PC or we're decorating - the hall's nearly finished... and the bookcases are so close to having somewhere to live! I've bought a domain name and got some hosting space, so I'm hoping to get that up and running soon. How do you pick a domain name that suits you? and is free! I've gone for mablog.co.uk - don't look yet there's nothing there. C always calls me 'ma, as in Em"ma" and it can also be ma as in my. So it works. I'm very excited about getting my own space to play with. I can add pages, and do stuff - if I ever find the time!

Is it good when the midwife says "wow"

My midwifes appointment was yesterday - 28 week check up. I'm now 27w4d... which is amazing to me, so close and yet so far! Everything's fine, blood pressure on the low side but normal for me, all my blood results came back ok. No syphilis for me to worry about... although I wasn't until they mentioned it. She took some more blood to check my iron levels and antibodies again and then had me lay on the couch to measure my uterus and listen to the heartbeat. Apparently "wow, that's a big baby"... which didn't reassure me as much as I guess it should have done. She says I've not put on much fat and the bump is "all baby" it's head down, happy to be there (according to the heartbeat), and big. Which is nice.

My thoughts on pregnancy (today)

The weird thing is all the way through this my feelings have changed. I didn't really enjoy the first three months, at all. I wasn't hugely sick, but I didn't feel well most of the time, and I was tired a lot. But even now I'm feeling nostalgic about it and even broody, and I've not had the baby yet!! One of the guys in my office has just announced his wife is pregnant, 6 weeks. We've been exchanging stories and I've shared a few internet links. I've really enjoyed the middle three months, being able to do things and go out, not feeling too tired but still being able to feel the baby move inside me is amazing. I'm really going to miss being pregnant - although I'm sure I wont be saying that in a few months. I wasn't aware how much of a total body experience it is. There isn't one part unaffected, even your eyesight is supposed to get worse! I've certainly noticed a difference in my brain and concentration. But it's everything... hair, arms, legs... they're all affected in some way or other. It's like living a science experiment - what will change this week! I'm loving it though. Every minute, even when I'm tired and sick. It feels like so long to go, and yet it's terrifyingly close to being over... three more months.
