Dear little pea,
Although I’m never going to be one for daily entries (or sometimes even weekly), I know that I have neglected this a little bit. Not because I don’t enjoy it but because I feel like I’ve started to compare myself with others and as much I hate doing it, I can’t help it. This also includes the fact that when I started this I thought I’d have so much to write about when the truth is your parent’s lives are actually pretty boring and I have nothing significant to update on. Saying that we do enjoy days out in the woods, with family at the beach or watching Game of Thrones the second it comes on the TV. That doesn’t necessarily make us boring people just not everyday post-worthy events.
I need to keep reminding myself that I started this for us and it doesn’t matter how many views or follows it gets because in reality that doesn’t matter to me; this experience does. I never plan what I’m going to write about I just wait until it comes to me, whether that’s the next day or two weeks later. I still want to enjoy this without feeling like I have to keep up appearances for social media.
This week I’m definitely starting to feel like I’m in the second trimester. One minute I feel like I physically haven’t changed and then bam, I’ve started to struggle with putting on my own socks and panting just getting the laundry out the washing machine! In just under two weeks time, we’ll be half way through and find out if you’re a little dude or dudette.
It’s funny when anyone I’ve known has been pregnant I’ve been the person that asks the questions I get now, you know the ones that start to get annoying after the first 10 times somone asks if you’ve had morning sickness, why you want to find out the sex or what names have you thought of yet. It must be standard protocol when speaking to a pregnant lady and you cannot talk about anything else. Although saying that I’ve found myself talking about you all the time which probably not everyone wants to hear about constantly. But hey, they asked and I’m excited 🙂
It’s such a beautiful day outside, the sun is beaming and it’s actually starting to feel like the beginning of a real summer! This may be the only hot day we experience this year in England. It’s hard to be miserable with it being this nice but I’m still bummed that I’m stuck inside an office with not a lot going on. I often find myself here. By often I mean every day. I’ve done all my jobs and just have to sit here and wait until the next thing comes in. It’s easy but I get tired and bored quickly going on the same websites and becoming a stalker on people’s blogs, profiles and instagrams.. Days like this I long for my maternity leave and squishy little you to already be here.
Patience is always a virtue.
You’re now the size of a sweet potato! You’ve started moving around a lot more with wriggles and kicks. Your facial features and nervous system are always developing and defining you into the little being you’re going to become. Your eyelashes and hair have started to grow and if you are a little girl, your uterus is already developed and in place!
