Pregnancy Diary: Baby 12 in 2012 – Week 34




Today is one month exactly until we meet Baby Sullivan.

I have noticed how the first two trimesters have me counting up the weeks through the pregnancy yet once I hit 30 weeks it turns into a countdown instead.  This countdown seems to have come by very quickly.  Mike doesn’t seem to think so.  Maybe I feel the pressure more as to just how little time we have left to do what we need to do.

The to-do list currently stands at the following:

  • Build triple bunk
  • Rearrange storage to create space for Baby Sullivan’s clothes
  • Wash and put away Baby Sullivan’s clothes
  • Buy last few bits for hospital bag
  • Pack hospital bag

Okay, so it’s not that much really but I can’t adopt Mike’s more relaxed attitude of, ‘How much does a new baby need preparing for anyway? It won’t take long.’

I’m thinking more along the lines of, ‘This baby will end up sleeping naked in a drawer if we don’t get a move on.’

My hips are beginning to cause me a few niggles now, probably because of the stupid extra non-baby weight I’m carrying.  Must eat more salads and fewer empty calories, I think.  Night times are constantly interrupted with several much-needed loo visits throughout and the heartburn is nothing short of a constant annoyance now.  Apart from that everything is going well and I have nothing else to complain about or report.

I still think baby is a boy.  Mike has now changed his mind to thinking it is a girl.  One of us is right.  The question is who?

  1. Hi Tania,
    Other than taking loads of Rennies for heartburn I also found that really cold celery from the fridge really helped, it’s very alkaline so neutralises some of that pesky acid. I hope that might help you a bit. x
