30 Week Pregnancy Update

Hello third trimester!
30 weeks you guys. I can’t quite believe we’re here already!

This pregnancy has just flown by- no really. Being so preoccupied with mum duties already for the girls I’ve been mostly playing taxi for school runs, play dates & ballet classes so when it gets to the evening all I’ve wanted to do is sleep! But thats normal, right?

Week 29 and 30 have brought a whole new slew of emotions for me; the nervousness of my upcoming Caesarean Section and the worry of  leaving the girls for a few days have been playing on my mind quite a lot. But we’re so grateful for my parents who I know will go above and beyond to make sure the girls have the best (and most importantly, uninterrupted routine) time whilst their mamas away.

I’ve been diagnosed with a few things this pregnancy. One being Gestational Diabetes and oh. my. word. is it hard to get to grips with. It feels like all my hospital appointments have suddenly tripled and the worry & stress of now testing my blood & attending regular checkups to make sure Baby is ok is sometimes a little difficult to deal with as it’s all so new to me. But we are, of courseso grateful for the doctors & midwives keeping an eye & being as supportive as they can despite the stress.
(I’m also still in disbelief he’s really a boy. I definitely get the sonographers to check everytime they scan me. Haha)

This pregnancy has been a little hard. It’s been so different to the normal, textbook pregnancies I had with both the girls. The struggles, concerns and one horrible, horrible scare which of course was nothing short of awful. But he’s ok, I’m ok & I’m thanking God every day for this tiny little person we’ve been blessed with and I can’t tell you how much my heart aches already over how much I love him!

8 weeks left of feeling your kicks, little one.
We can do this!
You have no idea the amount you’re loved already.

Mama x

baby

    My aunt had Gestational Diabetes as well, oh boy that was so stressful! She was always checking her sugar levels and stressing about it. It was her first and only pregnancy.
    I hope the 8 weeks you have left will go smooth 🙂

    I know exactly how you feel with loads of appointments and blood tests etc! I had complications in all three of my pregnancies!
    And I know that feeling of disbelief that you’re having a boy after having girls. Little boys are so amazing <3 My girls are amazing with their little brother. You look amazing by the way! good luck x
