I think the time has come for me to become a little more active and make the most of the little one’s holidays. My husband has been taking her for long walks, climbing and taking photos in the countryside while I stay at home catching up on the ironing/reading/writing or nursing a headache. Next time they go somewhere I’ll make an effort and drag myself off the sofa. I’ll try.
Today we’ve got our monthly visit with the gynecologist. What I love about this doctor is the fact that he always does a scan. I’ve got a whole album brimming with scan photos of Maia while I was carrying her. We’ve got some photos of number 2 as well but I have yet to organise them the way I had done the first time. In any case, I can’t wait to see him/her. A month ago we could already see a fully formed baby stretching its (very long) legs and touching its face. I am also slightly concerned I might be too big for 17 weeks (I’m sorry but no photos have been taken yet!). People keep commenting on how big I am and I am becoming overly self-conscious. I also read that it’s normal to suddenly put on weight at this point of the pregnancy, even if you don’t overeat. I’ve written a list of questions for the poor doctor and I’m checking it twice. Let’s hope all is good.
