Sadly not the most positive or exciting words to describe the week but the word that best sums up our week is tired. I guess being 6 1/2 months pregnant and running around after a 2 year old it is slightly inevitable!
We had a fantastic weekend with friends which left me feeling happy but shattered! My parents helped with Monkey on Monday as usual which really helped (though I will admit I was still tired and irritable!). Tuesday Monkey actually spent some time with Daddy in in the office as I had a variety of pregnancy related appointments including blood tests, my whooping cough jab and seeing the midwife. It turned out that the midwife was running over 20 minutes behind too so I was hugely grateful not to have to entertain Monkey in the waiting room the whole time!
After a lovely relaxing aquayoga session on Wednesday evening I was actually feeling a bit better (though still tired annoyingly) on Thursday morning. Then my mum called to give some news and I excitedly jumped up and ran to hubby to tell him before he left for work. Which at 6 1/2 months pregnant is not the best idea. Honestly that’s the 2nd time in a week I have somehow forgotten I am pregnant, bizarre! How do you forget you are pregnant when you have a huge bump and a painful pelvis?? Anyway it was a mistake as I have pulled a muscle in my side and am really sore now :(.
I didn’t think too much of it initially and Monkey and I went plum picking with friends, but as the day has gone on it has got sorer and sorer and I am sad to say I have got more and more irritable along with it. My fuse has been short and I have to take a lot of deep breaths to stop myself telling Monkey off for nothing really. He hasn’t been badly behaved but little things I am not normally bothered by are suddenly so irritating when I am tired and hugely uncomfortable! Anyone else ever feel like that?
I am now lying down and plan to stay this way all evening before having an early night. Fingers crossed I will be feeling a bit better tomorrow and less tired as we have a lot going on again this weekend!
How has your week been?
