30 Confessions at 30 Weeks…

Bloody hell! 30 weeks, where has that time gone?

In some ways it feels like I’ve been up the duff forever but in other ways I still feel like I’m easing into it! It felt like for ages I was saying “oh it’s still early days” or “it’s too early to be feeling this or that” now I’m in the last 10 weeks! Here’s a list of 30 confessions to mark week 30 of growing my tiny human

  • Last night I had my first dream about labour
  • I haven’t made it to any antenatal classes yet
  • 2 weeks ago I started making our dog sleep in the living room instead of our bed at night – I hate going to bed without him – he doesn’t seem to mind!
  • I can’t walk for more the 20 minutes without getting a sore back
  • I get so out of breath doing tiny tasks like putting my shoes on or bending over to pick something up I worry that I’m grossly unfit
  • I’m so over work and can’t wait to go on maternity leave
  • I have absolutely no motivation
  • I’m worried I’ll be a terrible mum
  • I’m terrified about how my body cope with labour
  • I feel a bit like the apocalypse is coming
  • But I’m super excited for the future
  • I’ve started doing a home practice of pregnancy yoga
  • I’m considering learning how to do Reiki on myself to get me through the last 10 weeks
  • I’m worried about how much more weight I’m going to gain
  • I’m stressed my how many stretch marks I have developed
  • I Can’t wait to be able to dress up and feel glamorous again
  • My husband and I still can’t agree on a name
  • For 30 weeks I’ve said I was going to swim every week – I’ve been once! I’m going next week (no really I am)
  • As the days go on I feel more and more worried about things going wrong
  • I love laying in the bath watching my belly move as my baby kicks
  • Being pregnant has made me feel more vulnerable than I’ve ever felt in my life but at the same time stronger and more calm than I ever thought possible.
  • I love sitting in my unfinished nursery working out where everything is going to go
  • I miss being able to paint my toenails
  • I don’t have much of an appetite but can’t stop eating!
  • The first time I lactated (a tiny bit) I thought I was going to puke!
  • I miss wine, and bubbly!
  • I can’t believe how far I’ve come on this journey
  • I’m more in love with my husband then ever
  • Despite the pain and worry and discomfort I feel happier in myself than I’ve ever been
  • I can’t wait to meet my son!

  1. Love love love this post! I could have written it myself when I was 30 weeks pregnant. I think back with so much fondness and happiness as uncomfortable as I was. Enjoy your bump, don’t worry about your stretch marks or your weight, your little boy won’t care about that, he will only remember all the love you give him and how happy you make him feel. Pregnancy is such a paradox, I also felt amazing, even after gaining what I think was about 4 stone in weight! But I also felt so vulnerable and also so scared. 3 months after my little boy arrived and I can’t (or care to) remember life before him xx enjoy 😘
