Minilemming Update - Week 29

As most of you have noticed I've been absent over the past week this is no fault of my own (unless you count getting pregnant as my fault). I've been struck down with a water infection which was suspected and then over the weekend progressed to a fever, fainting and lots of front and back pains, this then resulted me being run to the doctors on Monday and put on a course of antibiotics 4 times a day. The side effects were even worse than the infection and decided to spend the time actually doing nothing but sleeping, drinking fluids, taking tablets and generally doing nothing. Today has been the first day I've actually wanted to do anything constructive.

Minilemming however is regularly kicking away like nothing is going on, Midwife cheek at 28 weeks I was told they were 'Perfect' - they are growing as they should be, heartbeat is right on schedule etc. I have what I read as 'normal' symptoms - Heartburn, tiredness, swelling ankles and according to Husband, grumpiness that never left. I now do require help getting of sofas and bending over as bump gets bigger than my chest (I don't have a small chest either).

One of my favourite things to do at night to semi lie down and watch my stomach jggle and move through kicks. My husband however still keeps missing all of this, but as he says there is plenty more time before and after they are here.

Now it is just a matter of counting down the days until I am on maternity leave (16th December) as well as all the prenatal classes. Husband and I are also off to The Baby Show tomorrow to be bombarded with how much bits they think we need. I won the tickets through another blogger (Many Thanks to My Mills Baby) so I'm excited to be going back to Olympia to buy browse round baby bits.

Many thanks to everyone who has tweeted over the past week with get well wishes, it did mean a lot and I know I made the right decision to take a step back for a few days. Not only to feel better but actually enjoy some bonding time with Minilemming.


  1. Glad your feeling better! :-) it's amazing feel and see bump kicking away. I really do miss that xx

  2. Glad you are doing better, sometimes you just need to take the time to rest up. My husband always misses the kicks too but I love watching my bump wriggle x
