On Wednesday I felt the hottest I have ever felt in my life.... And I don't mean in a sexy sense. Normally I love the sun. Being British, and a Northern Lass too, "hot" isn't something that happens round here often so I really enjoy it when it does. But it's not so much fun when you are as pregnant and as big as me. I was working too, and our office is not the coolest of places in the summer. The skylights - which are fab for letting in light and warmth most of the year - turn the place into a greenhouse on days like this. Even with the door and windows open there has been no through breeze.
By lunch time I was fit for nothing. As it happens we are having technical difficulties at the moment which means that actual office work is on a serious go-slow anyway until it's fixed. So it was no big deal for anyone when I downed tools, put my feet up on a vacant chair, and just flaked out for most of the afternoon.
I still answered the phone, and helped were I could, but there was next to nothing to do and I had virtually no energy to do it anyway. I had the rest of the week off!
Hope the weather continues after Baby Bean arrives.
Here's what Fertility Friend says about baby this week:
Oh yes.... this baby moves A LOT! You can see my belly jump about from across the room!Your baby now weighs about 4.4 lbs (2000g) and measures about 12 inches (30cm) from crown to rump and about 19.4 inches (43cm) in total.Now that your baby is running out of room in your womb, you can probably see your belly moving as your baby kicks.Your baby may dream as he sleeps and when awake he may be alert, listening, feeling and even seeing dim shapes.Though your baby is still inside the womb, he is learning all the time as billions of neurons are making connections.Your baby is probably in his birth position by now.Your baby's lungs may be sufficiently developed by now, though if he were born now, he would probably still need an incubator to stay warm.

Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views.
