I am still here and still pregnant. Work was overwhelming which it always has been but working at the half the pace (and half the hours) I normally keep meant that I was pretty exhausted most days. The wonderful fabled second trimester lasted about a month for me. Having said that, third trimester hasn't been great. I have had pelvic girdle pain and Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction. Ouch, was not nice at all!! Silly me waited until I could barely walk before realising this wasn't normal. Went and saw a physio who specialised in pregnancy and got a tubi grip and a huge velcro support belly belt which gave some good relief. I am very grateful for being pregnant and looking forward to meeting this little bub but I must say, pregnancy has not been a blissful state for me. It has been hard work. Since being on holidays, life has been a little easier and now I am in the final countdown. I am due very early Feb but bub measuring three weeks ahead at this point...not in weight but in length!! Our last couple of ultrasounds with our ob has shown our little one has massive amounts of hair. Both mr k and I were born bald and remained so until at least 6 months so this is a very cute surprise. Next weekend I will be having my baby shower. Mum is having at her place but I have been organising it. In Australia there is not a strong tradition for baby showers but I thought it would be a good excuse to have a nice lunch and see everyone before I enter babyland. I love the blog of inchmark and have used her ideas as inspiration. I can't wait!!
I'll post some images soon.
