Wednesday 8th January – 33w
I had some really weird dreams last night. Number 1 – I was in a giant hall where I had to cook Christmas dinner for 100 people. The oven door fell off in the middle of service and burned both my legs and an arm so I had to go to hospital. (I think I’ve been watching too much MasterChef). Number 2 – I was chosen to test out a new type of hair colouring treatment. But I had to leave it overnight and they locked me in a room in a basement… (?!). Number 3 – I had started attending a Slimming World diet group. The first group I attended they had a quiz, but I got a question wrong so they arrested me… (another ?!).
Saturday 11th January – 33w 3d
Baby has been in another odd position today, I had hiccups high up in my right side at one point! Also those lightening/stabbing pains have started, I forgot how bloomin’ painful they were.
Sunday 12th January – 33w 4d
Nesting seems to have kicked in today. I never had the urge with little man. But today I have been sorting baby clothes out, cleaning like mad, and moving rooms around! (Oops).

It now feels like baby is trying any means to get out already – headbutting, kicking, poking – all of which are making me feel a bit sick with all the wriggling too.
We’ve also started looking for double pushchairs (though I will probably be baby-wearing mostly, but I like to be prepared and it will still be used, I’m sure). It’s giving me headache, it is so much harder than choosing a single one!
Tuesday 14th January – 33w 6d
Before we went to sleep last night, I said to hubby that I’ll probably be dreaming about pushchairs overnight – and I did!
I also woke up with a really tight pain in my stomach this morning. It was just constant so I took paracetamol, which helped and it pretty much eased off after a while so I think it was maybe just a bad tummy or something. If it hadn’t I would have headed to antenatal once hubby was home from work.

Their developing neural structure is helping them to listen, feel and partially see.
