Today I’d like to welcome back Sallyann to the blog. Sallyann is now 26 weeks pregnant and loving her pregancy so far! Last time at 22 weeks pregant she told us all about her maternity wardrobe and the key items she had bought and was planning to buy. Today Sallyann tells us how she is getting on so far, her last scan and the progress she is making with getting the house ready.
I’ll pass you over to Sallyann…….
I cannot believe I am half way through my pregnancy and I have to admit I am probably one of the most annoying people as I am enjoying the experience even the second time round. It is fantastic feeling, now have a noticeable bump as I don’t get those looks “hmmm is she isn’t she or has she stopped going to the gym”.
The 20 week scan is such a mile stone for so many women you are half way there your baby looks so formed on the scan and many find out the sex so the planning for babies arrival really begins.
I am in awe of the scan how we can see all the essential organs the spine and even the lenses of the eye, we didn’t find out the sex it is a lovely surprise on the day. When I got home I joked with my family that my scan looks the same as Gracie-May did, I am convinced! They of cause thought baby brain had taken over my sanity too lol!!
Although I am not nesting quite yet I have been completing my diary for the next few weeks and I realise as I fill it with summer holidays, birthday parties and a trip to a French chateaux the next few months will fly and I will be getting ready to push in no time!
I have also booked a birth prep class with my yoga teacher which I felt really helped last time and I have also booked a few hypnobirthing sessions after reading about its effectiveness on several blogs. I like the feeling that I am prepared even if on the day I ask for all the medication possible.
We are also starting to get our home ready which I think my boyfriend finds a more stressful situation than the first 6 weeks of sleepless nights. Our plans are underway as Gracie-May is going into a big girls bed and we will be adding to the finishing touches to her room as it has been very neutral so far I know want to add some design touches. For the baby we have chosen the furniture and are now awaiting on our plasterer and my dad to lend a hand with painting skills. I have several Pinterest boards which are inspiring me at the moment and I will hopefully be able to give you more of an update on my next post.
I am also re-visiting my pram situation although my last one was beautiful it was sadly not as user friendly as I had expected. This time with a toddler I need to make my decision more carefully.
Reading this post back I don’t know how I am going to have time to sleep over the next few months but I also must try and enjoy this pregnancy to the full.
Till next time
