The weather is glorious and hopefully a heat wave is on its way from somewhere, anywhere. I have pretty much been moaning over the last couple of weeks of an achey body due to “hormones” which has triggered SPD. Its not that joyous but apparently it just naturally affects a percentage of women through every pregnancy. Nice. I’ve written about weeks 16 and 17 of my pregnancy here.
For all the little niggles it’s caused it does make me very grateful that it means the pregnancy is going well, and the baby is, so far, doing well. It’s always a brilliant feeling of relief to hear the heartbeat beating away at almost double the speed of an adult, oblivious to everything except its little home listening to all our of our voices and becoming familiar with those that will love it once its time to be born. I get the feeling it will know Little Z very well. With his chatterbox voice and 3 million daily questions his is probably the voice the baby hears the most. Hopefully this means the baby will take him instantly and Little Z will hopefully make a good little assistant. Sometimes I’m not so sure when he stands in front of a door whilst I hold every single thing he’s asked me to carry, and then asks me to open it, but here’s hoping.
So this week I’m not so much Loud and Proud, but more quietly grateful its all going well so far. Hopefully the next 20 weeks bring with it a bit of relief and a pregnancy that carries on progressing well.
