30 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2 ♥

This was the week of my pregnancy that I was dreading. Jacek is gone to Dublin for four days to do his FE1 exams, the exams which will hopefully open the way for him to become a solicitor, a career which he so wants. I really wasn't looking forward to this week at all, thirty weeks pregnant just doesn't seem to be the ideal time to be left alone and with a sick three year old in tow too. I'm counting the days until Thursday evening, when we'll see Jacek again, not least because we both miss him a lot.

I have to admit I was so emotional when he left on Sunday, I don't know what came over me. I dropped him to the bus in the city and once he had waved goodbye I cried all the way home, I literally could not stop crying. Tyler Lee was looking at me quite strangely with my big red face. I had been cleaning the house all day trying to occupy my mind and make the time go quicker, I don't think I've ever done so much cleaning since the time he's been away, the whole house has had a deep clean!

Thankfully the days are going by quite quickly and Tyler Lee is being good to, he's been going to bed so early (half six last night!) and sleeping in late in the mornings too so he's being very good to me. Tomorrow is my 26th birthday, my last birthday as a mother of one. My mam and I are going to go shopping in the city whilst Tyler Lee is at preschool. I really need to get some new clothes, I'm so sick of my old ones and feel rather uncomfortable in everything too as my bump is so high.

I've been having trouble sleeping now too. My ears keep getting sore if I lie on them for too long at night, I looked this up and apparently it's very common during pregnancy. Baby is very active at night too, they only seem to kick and move about once I lay down to go to sleep - a view to the future maybe?! I've also begun feeling a bit sick during the night, especially once I get back into bed after a toilet trip. I've had sore arms and can feel my heart thumping in my chest, it was actually quite worrying last night but hopefully it was just from the anxiety of being in the house alone, I hate it!

Hopefully next week won't be so emotional and it'll be lovely to have Jacek back. We'll be getting started on organising what will be the nursery and what will be Tyler Lee's new room so we've lots of exciting things ahead.

This week...  
 
Baby is the size of a - summer cantaloupe, according to my Ovia pregnancy app.

I'm looking forward to - Jacek coming home on Thursday evening!

My favourite moment was - getting my lovely Mother's Day cards off my boy, he gave me a handmade one from school and picked out a lovely one for me from the shop too.

I've been feeling - really emotional, I don't think I've ever cried so much!

I've been buying for baby - I'm still on a spending ban and I think we have plenty for baby at the moment so I haven't been buying anything.

I'm missing - having Jacek around the house. It's true, you really don't know how much you miss someone until they're gone.

I'm craving - nothing at all, in fact, I'm not very hungry these days.

I'm loving - that my little boy is finally getting better. He's been sick for over two weeks now so it's great to see him slowly getting back to his old self.
           
I've been meaning to - I've not been meaning to do anything at all because I'm quite organised at the moment, although the next thing on my list is to get my hospital bag ready.

I can't wait for - my next hospital visit next Wednesday. It'll be great to see baby again and I'm firmly crossing my fingers that they're no longer breech.

    1. I didn't realise either and it only happens if I sleep on one side for too long.

  4. Being pregnant with a toddler can definitely be challenging at times. I remember my toddler being so excited about the upcoming birth and being able to meet her new sister!

  7. Awwww!!! This is sooo cute and sweet. I love the whole setup, and I like the crochet crown. I have a good friend who is getting ready to have her little one and she keeps me up-to-date how each which changes for her. Now, I think she is just ready for the baby to come

  9. I remember around the 30 weeks mark it became really uncomfortable for me to sleep. I'm a stomach sleeper so it was so hard for me to get comfortable. I hope you find some comfort soon. The outfit is so adorable!

  18. What adorable outfits!! I love all the new things that have come out since I had my youngest (he's 5)! I found that I wasn't very hungry towards the end of my pregnancies either. I just had to make sure I forced myself to eat enough to stay healthy. I''m glad you son is feeling better and wish you the best for the rest of your pregnancy!
