30 weeks pregnant. Wowzers, when you put it like that it is a little scary! I swear I was only just 20 weeks?? Blimey! So what is going on? I’m not sure I can even remember because Baby Brain is well and truly here. I am forgetting all sorts of things that I really shouldn’t be forgetting. I am getting names and dates muddled. I am committing to things, forgetting we already have things planned. I ordered shopping to come on Thursday night so my Parents and Leo would have food over the weekend while Hubby and I were away but somehow ordered it for the wrong week. Meaning hubby had to go out Thursday night and buy everything instead (on top of doing a load of other things to prepare for leaving at 8am the next morning to get to a wedding). When I do do the food ordering for the right day I also manage to forget key ingredients. Like cheese for a cheesy pasta, or half of the vegetables for making veggie burgers. I am just not getting things right. I am behind on writing my blog, reading and commenting on other lovely blogs and replying to comments on here – so for that I do apologise. I am going to try really hard to catch up this week. We have had a lot going on to be fair which I guess maybe accounts for some of this, but for the most part I am definitely blaming Baby Brain – it’s either that or I am definitely losing my marbles! I actually just read something really interesting this evening though, and that is that our brains actually shrink during the latter stages of pregnancy. They then increase again in the weeks and months post birth. That’s a bit bonkers really isn’t it? All the things that pregnancy does to us! Good to know there is at least a scientific reason for my forgetfulness and general lack of mental agility at the moment, makes me feel a tiny bit better about it but I am looking forward to my brain getting back to normal once baba is here. The big news for us at the moment is that we went to a very lovely wedding on Friday. Two very good friends of ours, who we actually introduced at a beer fest 3 years ago. We thought they would be great together and somehow miraculously we were right and in fact they are perfect for each other. The wedding was a good few hours away in Hereford but even despite my massiveness it was not one to be missed! We arranged for the grandparents to babysit and we headed off (I will write more about how Monkey fared in a later post :)). I blogged previously about choosing my dress and this lovely number didn’t let me down. I still felt huge but at least I felt good about myself and how I looked. Something that is not always easy at 7 months pregnant! The wedding itself was wonderful, thankfully the weather turned lovely right at the last minute for their gorgeous outdoor ceremony and there was a lovely garden party feel to the whole day. The great thing about this was that it meant I could sit down a lot, which I really needed! We had some great friends there with us and a lot of fun was had. I managed to stay until after 10pm which is hardly rock and roll but I was dead pleased I lasted that long. The downside is that I have been seriously tired, sore and therefore grumpy for the rest of the weekend (poor hubs!). Thankfully with the bank holiday I have had Hubby’s help with monkey and the house and catching up with everything. He really has been wonderful and I don’t know what I would have done without him! I am hoping for a calmer week this week to catch up on everything and hopefully get this baby brain functioning a bit better than it has of late!
