24 weeks pregnant in a rapeseed field

by Hannah

I haven’t written about my pregnancy since I made my announcement on here at 14 weeks, a whole 10 weeks ago now. As I’ve reached this milestone it’s made me reflect on my previous pregnancy and I went and had a little peek at what I was saying and feeling back then in December 2011! I wonder what I would have been saying about my first pregnancy had I been blogging? I think that probably would have been hilarious for me to read. I know my thought processes and perceptions would have been very different back then.

It’s interesting to read that people pointed out that my bump was compact as I have had similar remarks now, although people seem to state how small I am all the time. Sometimes I think I may be carrying slightly different but then at other times I’m not sure. It’s funny how the mind forgets certain aspects and how third time around I am certainly no expert on being pregnant. I’m more a pregnant person ‘a bit more in the know’.

As I’m getting bigger, I am finding that slowing down is a necessity and I find that damn right frustrating. At the moment when I get free time, my mind is racing with what I can accomplish in that free time and yes I’ve still been trying to whip round like I would without a bump. It’s only when I start to feel things pulling under my tummy that I am forced to slow down to probably what might be an average persons pace and I walk fairly quickly everywhere and slowing down doesn’t come naturally. I guess I’m too impatient.

However, I managed to pace myself today as we went on a long walk and I actually didn’t struggle or end up holding my tummy. I was just lagging behind and had to be waited for a lot but I managed it. It really was quite a novelty to have two boys scooting along and no buggy in sight. It’s been over six years sans buggy. So they’ll just be a brief interlude until that’s all going to change again…

looking good there Hannah! and I can’t believe it’s been 10 weeks since you announced it, and even more shocking is that you were pregnant way back in 2011, the year we started blogging, as that seems so long ago!
