getting bigger…getting sleepier…zzzzz
Got three days of madness (baby shower…choir conducting), but then I will be having some serious chillax time.
Got sternly told off by my mum and by a lady at the tills for trying to help lift a heavy mattress that my mum had just bought. I find it impossible to be unhelpful, despite being 34 weeks pregnant (!)
I have a cold. I’ve been taking my inhaler a lot because I’m asthmatic anyway and this usually happens with a cold, but it only feels just about under control. Pregnancy + Cold + Asthma = sad lungs. The baby and my uterus is just so high up now that there isn’t any room for my badly functioning lungs to properly expand, and I’ve got a really bad cough. I’m not wheezing or anything because I’ve been taking my bronchodilator, but I’m just trying to get through to my hospitals maternity helpline because they might advise me to get a prescription for some steroids or something just to be on the safe side. If I even get a hint of a wheeze, I will get myself to hospital asap, although I think I’m just about over the worst of it now.
Hot drinks are really helping though. Chamomile tea etc. nice and relaxing. I might actually try some raspberry leaf tea today as well for the first time!
I cant wait to have a flat stomach again and be able to roll over in bed without being like “HUGH.. HURRR… UGHHH ..*puff puff*.. GAHHH… okay!” lol
Totally feeling this post!
