I feel like I haven't 'appeared' here in some time. I haven't really had any new garments I could actually model for a while, and have been living in the same 3 dresses for the last 2 months or so. It has gotten cooler here in Melbourne, and I'm finding dressing for the autumn/winter temperatures a little harder than summer.
By 'bump' is going great guns though! Here I am in one my staple dresses:
I had a 34 week 'size and well-being' scan just under a month ago and they estimate our little baby girl will weigh about 3.5kgs/8 pounds at birth. My midwife said that if she was having a baby she would want them to be that weight, so I feel good that she will be a good healthy size that won't be impossible to push out (yes, I do think about these things. Almost constantly.).
Overall, I've felt very well. I have had one 'issue' - I have pelvic dysfunction and have to wear a compression bandage and a brace. The dysfunction cropped up about 6 weeks ago (unfortunately just before Michael went to the States, which was very difficult for me), and I've been banned from any type of exercising (which is very annoying for me). Since Christmas I have also had extremely swollen feet that never go down, but my blood pressure is perfect, so they are just a nuisance rather than something 'being wrong'. So really, I've had a very good pregnancy, and feel very lucky. I've not really been sick, I've not put on too much weight, and most importantly, the baby is healthy.
So now I have 3 weeks to go! I've just begun my maternity leave, and today we are setting up the nursery. This coming week I am going to wash all the teeny baby things - little cot sheets, mini mittens, tiny onesies. I'm really looking forward to it! Isn't it funny how doing copious amounts of washing can become fun?
