28 Weeks Pregnant!

By 2/27/2015

Being pregnant is a lot like being a newborn baby...

I am crying but I do not know why.
My memory basically does not exist.
Now I need the toilet again...
I'm actually quite hungry-
There isn't enough room in my stomach for all the food I want so I'm crying again.
Don't cough too hard I might wet myself!
Now I'm sleepy but god help me I can't stay asleep more than 30 minutes. 


 Baby is the size of an eggplant, I am the size of a houseboat...


So at 28 weeks pregnant I am officially into my third trimester and on the home stretch to having this baby! Little one is practicing breathing, she can hiccup, open her eyes...she's practically ready for the outside but has to stay inside my stomach a little longer to carry on getting nice and fat.

Speaking of fat... as I hit 28 weeks, I am literally huge. I am not joking, I am the size of a truck. The most common comment I get (even from strangers; thank you old man on the highstreet yesterday...) is that I look ready to give birth RIGHT NOW or I must be carrying twins. I try to laugh it off and joke how I'll be much bigger by the end and that my other half is a tall bloke; but inside I am absolutely petrified and gutted.

If I'm being told I am huge now- and I do feel huge- then how on earth will I cope when I'm fit to burst?! 

Another pregnancy side effect I have been made painfully aware of by comments from colleagues and Jack is waddling. I have recently adopted a waddle reminiscent of a penguin who really needs to use the toilet, and when I do need to really use the toilet- which is always- I have started pumping my arms to try and increase my speed. All this does, effectively, is make me look like I am rowing an imaginary boat and really doesn't change my speed at all.


I may joke around, and I do honestly love my bump and feeling her getting so big...but it is getting a lot harder and simple tasks like putting on jeans and socks are becoming harder and harder every day. It can get quite frustrating when I used to be so capable and suddenly I can't even eat a whole sandwich without feeling like my lungs have no room to expand and I can't breathe.. if it wasn't for the help and support I get from Jack both physically and mentally, I'd probably be stuck on my back like a poor helpless turtle for the rest of this pregnancy.

  1. I will also be 28 weeks pregnant in a few days time! I can relate to everything you said apart from the trouble sleeping. With 2 small children already I'm knackered by the end of the day so sleep quite well. Definitely have a waddle, people are starting to comment on that. lol. I love being pregnant though :)
