Over the past couple of weeks I have gone from having a cute little bump to something that now makes me look rather like a hippo; I canâ€™t even put my shoes or socks on properly without becoming a contortionist! I have invested in some stretch mark cream, but I doubt that it will work, but I can hope. Does anyone know of any good stuff to stop the stretch marks? If so, please, hook me up!
Aside from ballooning up, I havenâ€™t been feeling great a lately and after a few trips to the maternity unit and an overnight stay I’m praying that we have finally sorted things out and I am now on the mend.
I couldn’t have gotten through it all without lots of help from my wonderful husband, but I am feeling loads better now. However, I still donâ€™t like doing nothing because it drives me mad, but it is nice to know I have lots of support from my loved ones.
On another positive note, I have my graduation soon so I am on the lookout for a dress – or maybe even a tent – that looks pretty yet sophisticated and some flat shoes for those swollen ankles. To be honest, I am really looking forward to the event, I just wish I could find something flattering to wear, but having my husband, daughter and bump there will make sure the day is extra special no matter what happens.
Oh, and baby names update : We’re back onto choosing the names againâ€¦ I think we are just about to finish throttling each other and have decided on some we like, but I am sure I will change my mind again, it is the prerogative of a hormonal woman!
