Firstly…the little monkey is still in the belly…so two days late now. He’s still in there fighting to get some elbow, knee, body, well, any kind of room!

I have a hospital appointment tomorrow morning that was scheduled if he didn’t arrive anyway by now, so let’s see…

I am still getting lots of pressure and pains, which makes me want to move around or shift positions or something…but this lovely UK rain just hinders me walking around the block.

I really wanted go out yesterday, although still trying to recover completely from this cold before the baby comes, but it was raining all day. And there is a fun fair on the green near us that me, my dad and Stuart went to on Friday and played some games….and lost! So I wanted to go back yesterday as it was the last day…but no, it was pouring all day 😦

Those stupid fun fair machines are so addictive and annoying! You know these ones…

The coins are just hanging off the ledge waiting to be pushed off and make me rich!! And then they get you as there are bank notes just hanging there too…that appear to just need a slight nudge by me putting in one coin! Just one coin…or one more…or how about a few more….arghhhh now my pockets are empty!!!

Soooo annoying!! And I know I can’t get those notes but what if…I mean, WHAT IF, I can do it???!!!

I find these way more fun than slot machines …although my dad and I also like the claw machines that can grab a toy – sadly also annoying and hard! But strangely addictive! We’ve won a toy before but at this fun fair we all walked away with nothing!

So, I was hoping to go back and get something after I spent all those coins! I would feel better if we walked away with something! You know, and redeem ourselves!

But, no, the rain wouldn’t let me….so we missed out 😦 Which probably is best in the financial long run I guess!

And again it was raining out today – pouring this morning – but cleared enough to have a quick wander out in the late afternoon. However, with this pressure and pains it feels like the little monkey could come anytime so I have to be careful with how far I go. But tomorrow’s forecast is RAIN….surprise surprise!!


365 ONE: day 259…The Little One will be a LIBRA

Day 259: September 23rd, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking Stairs

Dance of the Day was = “When Love Takes Over (radio edit)” by David Guetta feat. Kelly Rowland

Horrible out today in merry and sunny (not) ol’ England!

It has been raining ALL day long!!! ALL DAY LONG!!!

Grey.

Windy.

Cloudy.

Rain.

Cold.

Such a pleasant environment, hey!!!

It’s a perfect time to watch movies and do nothing under the covers…but I am not good at doing that when I have so much on my mind…and so much going on inside my belly!!!

The little monkey is still here with us….or rather, he is still crammed and crunched and putting a lot of pressure on me and pains but still from the inside!

However, a good friend of mine said that the little monkey should wait to come out until after the 23rd so that he would be past being on the cusp of two astrological signs…which I know nothing about! I mean, I know literally nothing about signs and what they represent, so would never consider that, but I think though that the little monkey was listening to his Auntie as he has remained from saying hello in this astrological cusp!

Astrological signs really do elude me. I feel quite out of it as everyone around me seems to really know things and take their signs seriously – or even consider someone’s signs when dating – or my favorite is when someone asks what sign you are and I would say “Taurus” and they go “Ohhhhhhhhhh!”

It appears I make sense to them after I have revealed to them what sign I am????!! What the??!! Still so foreign to me!!

I am not going to offend anyone as I know people really believe in it all…I just don’t. I mean, I don’t know enough about it….but I am a little hesitant with it all. Sorry believers!!

Do people who really believe in signs…do they plan their babies around it? Is that a real thing?

Well, as we reach the end of the 23rd of September today this therefore means no cusp now, and the little one will therefore be a Libra….is that a good thing or a bad thing? What does a Libra mean?

I guess I will have to read up 🙂

Last night late I started to get a sore throat. Randomly. At like 11pm.

Had a rough night.

Woke to such a sore throat…scratchy….hurting when I swallow….all the many times I woke up in the night.

And then this morning I felt like crap.

Still feel like crap.

And I can’t take anything so I have been salt gargling and drinking tea and hoping this, whatever it is, will pass! PLEASE!!!

Have been sneezing a lot though now too in the last few hours…ugh.

I hope I am not getting sick, seriously….I mean seriously??????!!!!!! Do I really need something else right now? Do I not have enough to deal with already??????!!!!!!!

Seriously.

No, seriously.

Off to drink more tea and gargle some more salt.

What a load of poop 😦

Was up early today. And no sleep. Sleep is getting worse….I can feel movement and I am uncomfortable in every position, and feel like I’m cramming the little monkey in any position. And then I’m awake and have to pee….lovely cycle!! Every single night!

Anyway, I had to be up early because we had someone coming in to do some work on the flat I am staying in, something that was planned a while ago for when the flat will be rented out again, but also would be useful for us, so my mum wanted it to be done before the little monkey comes.

Ah the little monkey.

Poor little monkey.

20120909-001214.jpg

I am at 38 weeks now which apparently means that the little monkey is at almost 20 inches and there is just no room in there. Seriously. How can that length fit in my belly???? Seriously!

It must be crammed cabins in there. Tight quarters! And the little monkey is moving around A LOT!!! He is obviously not happy. He is fighting for some room in there.

I feel bad that there is no room in there.

So, little monkey, this is for you…

Sorry little monkey that I’m not sleeping well and not letting you sleep, or schmooshing you in my positions.

I’m sorry I’m short little monkey.

I’m sorry I’m eating and making less room in there for you little monkey.

I don’t know where you a fitting right now but I sense from all your movement and pressure you are giving me, that you’re crammed. I don’t blame you little monkey and I will put up with all that for you.

And if you want to come out earlier little monkey because you need more room, I won’t blame you either.

Eeeeeeeeek!!

Sooooooo….

All the books I have been reading say that the kicking and movement in my pregnant whale bump belly should be less now and/or less pronounced – which makes sense as there is less room for the little one to move in at this stage.

But………

There has been no slowing down of movement. Or less kicking/bubbling.

There has been MORE!!!

It’s like a constant bubble show down there!

Seriously!

I’m constantly bulging at the top of my belly with his feet prodding out all over! Happening right now as I type! Happens ALL the time!

And these prods are BIG still, not minor like the books say.

Soooooo…..

Does that mean that the little one is going to be the next Hulk Hogan?

Or is he getting so fat from all that I’m eating that he is super uncomfortable in the lack of space and fighting to find some room?

Or is he kicking me to show me his rebellious and naughty side from now so that I can be prepared for what the next decadeSSS will be like ahead?

Or is he trying to push down to get out?

Or is he in a constant sugar shock? And freaking out? Like mother like son!!!! Haha!!

I guess we will have to see.

In the famous words of everyone around me: “it’s countdown time”!!!!!

Happy First Day of the Month!!

Happy September!

I can’t believe it.

As my dad said in his BBM messages this morning – September is Bubbles month!! And will bring us hopefully all luck and strength and all things good!!

Well, Mr. Bubbles, that is a lot of pressure on you down there in my belly! 🙂

I hope September is a good month. And will bring all that to my family.

Wowza.

September – me oh my!

Very surreal really. September means that I have three weeks to my due date and that’s just….makes me speechless actually.

I had a tough day yesterday after those two bad pains I got…it freaked me out a little so had a tough evening. And now it’s September! That’s not going to help my freak-o-meter…it hasn’t!

Do you know what would help??? A shot of tequila!!

Or FIFTY!!!!

Anything to Note =

I keep having bad sleeps 😦

I also keep waking up from my doze sleeps – that’s what I like to call them as they seem to be so brief and just like a doze – to the reality of being pregnant. I obviously am not pregnant in my dreams or something because it seems to be a shock each time when I wake and shift positions in bed that there is a belly in the picture, or in the way.

So that’s been lovely the past few nights – to have to keep coming to terms with being pregnant over and over and over again!

It should be the other way around…I should be awaking from pregnancy dreams to not being pregnant 🙂

I still think it may be all a dream…
