Being Almost 39 Weeks Pregnant

July 4, 2010

This post originally appeared in my old blog, www.the-alice.co.uk – Greys Anatomy has been my saviour from Maternity Leave boredom this week. I love it – LOVE IT! Unfortunately it’s a bit of a ritual that Will and I watch it together at the end of a long day, but to his dismay I can’t wait for him any longer. So I’m averaging 4 episodes a day and am currently whizzing through season 5, whereas Will is stuck at the…

Being 33 Weeks Pregnant

June 1, 2010

This post originally appeared in my old blog, www.the-alice.co.uk – Sleep has suddenly become really hard. How can I be so tired yet find it difficult to drop off at night? I’ll tell you how: a head in my ribs, a baby with the hiccups at 2am and a middle of the night football habit. – ICE. Oh god, ice. I love it so much. Current daily intake: 3 pints. YUM. Thinking about ice makes my mouth water. – I…

Being 31 Weeks Pregnant

May 21, 2010

This post originally appeared in my old blog, www.the-alice.co.uk We have had a clanger of a month. My father-in-law passed away on May 1st and on Tuesday Will was made redundant from his job, effective immediately. Cue panic. We are lucky that we were able to spend a 2 weeks in Greece with his family before the redundancy, and he has had meeting requests and offers pouring in since the news broke. So it may not all be doom and…

Being 28 Weeks Pregnant

April 27, 2010

This post originally appeared in my old blog, www.the-alice.co.uk 27 working days left until maternity leave – 12 weeks until baby day. Wahoo! I get tired. Not just sleepy tired but physically exhausted tired. Stairs and hills are my nemesis – I can’t handle them and I’m sure I’ve pissed off many people by struggling up them. You can’t see I’m pregnant from my behind (and this is a good thing!) so I expect I get lots of dark looks…

Mind The Bump

March 30, 2010

This post originally appeared in my old blog, www.the-alice.co.uk Ever since my bump has popped I’ve noticed real attitude changes in the way people react to me. Aside from the usual comments from work colleagues (I get at least one remark about how big I’ve gotten every day), it’s fascinating to see the way strangers in the street react to me. Men, specifically ones around 30 – 40, seem terrified of the bump; they back away from it, with a…

20 Weeks and Counting

March 2, 2010

This post originally appeared in my old blog, www.the-alice.co.uk I think it’s about time for a 20 week update, don’t you? It feels wonderful to be halfway there. Not only have my worry levels dropped significantly recently (thank-you hormones), I’m really pleased that the time isn’t dragging anymore. I’m concentrating on enjoying the pregnancy – easier now I look pregnant rather than a raging Krispy Kreme fan. I’m feeling a lot more like my happy, healthy self (minus the sickness…

On The Tail End of Girl-Flu

February 13, 2010

This post originally appeared in my old blog, www.the-alice.co.uk It’s been a funny couple of days. The blocked up nose I’ve been enjoying ever since I got pregnant has been made unbearable by a cold; I’ve been tired, headachy, grouchy, and did I mention TIRED? I worked from home yesterday, thanks again to the wonderful motion that is HAVING THE INTERNET AT HOME. Wonderful . Thursday was my second appointment at the hypertension clinic, which was just as relaxing as…

My 10+4 Baby Belly

December 20, 2009

This post originally appeared in my old blog, www.the-alice.co.uk So here’s the belly at 10 weeks 4 days. There’s the start of something baby in there, but I would like to know when this mysterious ‘glow’ will arrive. Right now all I want to do is sleep and vomit.…
