Week 31 – fabulous friends and birthday fun

BabyCentre facts Baby’s weight – about as much as four navel oranges, nearly 1.5kg Length – 41.1cm, head to heel   This week I celebrated my birthday – my last one before motherhood. It’s bizarre to think that from this point on I will receive birthday cards from ‘my son’ (provided Chris gets his act together!). My 28th has not come at an ideal time given Chris’ work schedule. He is never home. And even on the weekends he is either in the office or spends all day at the dining table plugged into his laptop. And it was really starting to take its toll. Come Monday morning I felt pretty down and really lonely. Never seeing Chris, general baby anxieties and missing my family had gotten to me – that, and the fact that I had had about three hours sleep. I made it into work around lunchtime. And I am […]

Week 30 – my big baby bump

BabyCentre facts Baby’s weight – about as big as good-sized cabbage this week, weighing in at 1.3kg Length – 39.9cm, head to heel   I woke up on Monday morning suddenly looking very pregnant. Just two weeks ago in the UK, a lady approached me and asked if I would like to attend a wine tasting event, failing to notice that I was seven months pregnant (a no-brainer if I wasn’t expecting!). She wouldn’t make that mistake now. Probably for the first time I feel like I have got a proper baby bump; I can’t see my feet anymore, which, by the way, have started to swell up at the end of the day. And I no longer need to push my tummy out to bag a place on the metro – people see me coming a mile off and immediately give up their seats. I must admit, I do love […]

Week 29 – the seven month scan

BabyCentre facts Baby’s weight – almost the size of a butternut squash and weighing just under 1.2kg Length – 38.6cm, head to heel   Doctors and nurses aside, does anyone ever really feel at ease in a hospital? I don’t. For starters, there’s the negative connotations we all associate with them – surely having a baby is the only time its ‘good’ to be in one. And there is something about waiting rooms that brings out all my nervous energy. I know I am not the only one. I have looked into the eyes of fellow mums-to-be in the maternity unit, and I’ve seen the apprehension as they wait for their names to be called. Yes, there is definitely tension in that waiting room – that said, I fear that the majority of it stems from me. I am one of life’s worriers and it’s hard for me not to panic […]

Week 28 – the final UK visit

BabyCentre facts Baby’s weight – just over 1kg; close to a Chinese cabbage! Length – 37.6cm, head to heel   “The next time we see you, you are going to be a mum – can you believe it?!!” These were the words that followed me round the south of England as I visited family and friends for the last time. And no, for the record, I can’t quite believe it. My only trip back to the UK since finding out I was expecting meant that for many it was the first – and conversely the last – opportunity to see ‘the bump’. I have never felt more pregnant than I did in those eight days. The excitement over the baby and my ‘blossoming’ tummy was amazing; it’s something that I have really missed out on living away in Madrid. I was treated like a queen. There was my first spa […]
