24 weeks pregnant

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Today I am 24 weeks pregnant. I am also on my happy holidays! The weekend was quite emotional. I had an awful day at work Thursday leaving me in a lot of pain and feeling very poorly Friday. I then got so stressed about not being ready for holiday that I had my biggest hormonal breakdown yet on Saturday. The kids had been playing up and I hadn't even started the task of packing yet. Andy was busy all weekend so of course it was left up to me. Of course I feel silly now for getting so upset over it all as it took an hour or two Sunday evening and now we are relaxing in the sunshine and all the stress is a distant memory (until we get home and the unpacking starts!).

The holiday is definitely doing me good it's been a long time since we've had so much family time. The sun is shining and we've spent a fair bit of time just playing or walking along the beach. It's a shame we are only here for four days because I would love a few extra days. Although I've been walking a lot more than at home I haven't been in as much pain, baby is so far behaving no more moving into awkward positions *touches wood*. It's amazing how much better you feel when away from the stresses that come with being at home. 

We did however have a bit of a nightmare journey with the kids who were extremely bored for the whole almost 5 hours in the car! Which is making me wonder if we will manage to get away next year with three of them! I didn't have enough for them to do in the car obviously (any tips for next time greatly appreciated).

So this week has ended on a high. Hopefully next week will be just as good!
