Yup, this is me! The ‘bump’ has grown substantially since I last posted a pic (12 weeks ago). That said, I took the photo just now (almost 4pm) and it definitely seems bigger as the day goes on. Or it might just be my perception of it.
Now that the first baby in the group of school mother’s has been born, attention is being turned to me – the next in line – and every other day I get questions about how much longer to go etc etc. It’s kind of nice. It’s certainly nice seeing a newborn on an almost daily basis and reacquainting myself with their small yet insistent presence.
I just looked back on the pics from last time around and I have to say I look about as big as I did at 35 weeks, though at this point in my last pregnancy I was 2 sizes bigger than I am now, so I guess its just that this bump is more obviously a baby and less like pies 😉 I’m still feeling pretty good for the most part and all the things I feared haven’t showed up yet: no carpal tunnel since a small patch of it early on, no swelling yet, my sciatica isn’t playing up, my body is generally not sore and I certainly don’t have the intense pelvis pain I did last time (yet. I’m well aware I still have a few months to go 😉 ).
68 days til due date.
