Hot Potato Chip: Week 29

What we ate: Nothing stands out.  I worked. I ate meals at stupid times. I ate too many things from the snack box.  We didn't even have time to get the good strawberries.
How we moved: Not much.  Not much at all.  I am really letting the side down, advent challenge-wise.
Tuesday: Yoga
Wednesday: REST (work)
Thursday: REST (work)
Friday:REST (just tired, and lazy)
Saturday: REST (in Wellington.  And lazy)
Sunday: 40 minute walk
Monday:  REST
Where we went: Wellington.  I have decided I don't like pregnant flying any more.  It was hot and stuffy, I was tired and a bit nauseous, and the airplane seat forced me into a really uncomfortable position. Fortunately I have no flights left (and if things change and I need to get on a plane it's not like it's THAT bad).
What we wore: A new work skirt, and some trousers I'm planning to get turned into capris.
What we bought/got given: Some lovely knitted overnaps from Organic Baby in Petone.  I couldn't resist.  Also, a small pile of Golden Books.
What changed: I have slowed down a LOT.  I'm moving slowly, and I'm feeling utterly exhausted. Too many weekends away mean I haven't caught up enough on rest, and also that I'm trying to catch up on housework and laundry while dealing with a busy time at work, and stressing about Christmas.  Chip is definitely bigger, and definitely less comfortable inside me.  Poor wee baby. 
Exciting moments: Chip was doing very well at our midwife appointment today.  Sitting in the right sort of place, measuring the right sort of size, generally doing the right sorts of things.  Go Chippo!

What I miss: Feeling energetic. I hate not feeling like me!

I know what you mean about slowing down - and also about flying! I too have no more flights left yay!

Yay! You must have got so sick of it with all that work travel!

oh noooooo i am not looking forward to this slowdown!  29 weeks - you're SO CLOSE!!!!

HotpotatoKate said...

You might not get it- I think it's partly a bit of overdoing it and partly my high weight gain (as well as just plain old being pregnant!!)

So glad that Chip is measuring right on track! Go Chip Go!!!  I have yet to take a flight while pregnant and we have a vacation scheduled for January and I'm not looking forward to the long airplane ride.  Hope after some rest you will feel a bit more energetic again :)

It seems like a lot of women stagnate in the belly growing department around week 30, then suddenly have a huge growth spurt!  Glad Chip is on track :)
