Some pregnancy words
I never though i would say that i actually miss being pregnant. If i can give you one advice here, that is cherish these moments, enjoy them and focus just on yourself. The time flies so fast and before you even know it is is gone. Sure, you than have your little one right next to you and that is for sure beautiful, but pregnancy is truly a nice part of this entire journey.
I am not gonna lie and say that yes i did experience discomfort, major tiredness, i was short of breath and everyday tasks started to be a mission for me, but it was also the time that brought us closer together with my husband, when he was laying so close to my tummy to listen to the heart beat and tickle his little feet as they were kicking.
Spoil yourself and slow down. Go for massage (i went just for one), do pregnancy yoga (never got round to it), book some pregnancy photoshoot as you really want to remember this! I would suggest to do some courses, so you plus minus know, get ready for the little one with all he may need, at least in the first weeks (i totally underestimated the amount of diapers and simple burb cloth) and read up a bit because there might be a "And what now?!" moment as you come home.
Our date was 12th of August and so when i experienced "some weird pain" on the 17th of July i was a bit confused. It also did not feel like everybody was saying. My info was to go to hospital when they are each 5mins for at least 2 hours, well i had just couple of those (like four) and then it stopped. "Ok cool those are just the practicing ones" so i turned in bed to continue sleeping and i was laying in water (my water broke round 8am), went to toilette and woke up Mathew with "I might be in labor" .. What?Now? :D he was not calm what so ever!
