The Good, The Bad & The Bump(y)

33 Week Baby Bump
The Good
  • Going to the Big Brother live show last night. Lot's of fun!
  • Mini pink suitcases for storage. Adorable!
  • 4 weeks left of work. I am seriously counting down.
  • Labour ward tour this at this weeks antenatal class. I am really looking forward to this.
  • Sunday mornings spent at the markets.
The Bad
  • Realising I should probably pack my bag for hospital but I have no idea what to pack!
  • Crappy sleep. I think this item will be on the list from now until I stop doing these posts.
The Bump
33 Week Baby Bump

I feel like I haven't grown much in the past few weeks in my belly but I think my butt has started growing :-) My jeans feel a little bit tighter.  I am not doing weekly doctors visits which is making the weeks go even faster.  I'm still not having much luck in the sleeping department and I spoke with my doctor who gave me some tips.  Nothing seems to be working though so I think I am just going to have to live with it.  I have a suspicion that it is because my brain is constantly thinking about what I have to do at work before I leave.  I have 3 big events in my last 2 weeks so my to do list is pretty big.  Once I am on maternity leave I will hopefully get more sleep.  Fingers crossed!  Apart from the sleep I am doing pretty good. I am just so ready to meet our little girl. I have had 2 friends have babies in the past 4 weeks and I am so jealous. I want my little one here so I can kiss and cuddle her. I said to Corey yesterday I am sick of talking to her through my belly. I just want to be able to look at her and smile at her.  Knowing my luck though she will be late just to try and teach me some patience.  Patience is not exactly my best attribute!


  1. I can relate to the impatience toward the end. It's hard to wait to meet a new little person!

    I hope you're able to get some more/better sleep soon. Toward the end of my pregnancy, I was hardly sleeping, and everyone would say "Wait'll the baby gets here, then you'll be really tired!" But it was actually A LOT better when the baby got here. Sure, I was up in the night often, but once she was asleep I could really sleep, you know? Anyway, I just always want to offer that ray of hope to tired pregnant ladies now that I've been through it myself!

  2. I had a 2 hour nap after lunch! Mat leave is the best. I found in the final few weeks of work, you just have to say 'No' to everything and everyone if it's not between your 9 to 5 working day... I really became fussy over what I did after work, and mostly it was about getting home as fast as possible, having a bath immediately to relax and then getting to bed early... Good luck with it Kat!
