So today is my last day at work before we leave for Thailand on Monday – huzzah!
There are a few occasions that I am celebrating around this..
What I am a teeny bit worried about are the photos that I/we will inevitably be taking and posting online throughout our trip. My stomach has popped out even further since I posted that photo at the beginning of the week, and I don’t know if I am going to be able to hide it in every single photo. Luckily there are only two people at work who are currently following me on Instagram, and I am not posting anything to Facebook (does anyone, anymore?) so, I am kind of safe in that regard, and am totally planning on telling my boss as soon as I get back. I do have a feeling though, that it is just going to come out naturally during this trip. Am I prepared for it to be common knowledge among the masses? I don’t really know about that.
I was hoping that my maternity clothes were going to arrive before I left so that I could reach ultimate comfort on the plane, however it looks like that isn’t going to be the case. I will simply have to settle for old Bonds tights and some kind of comfortable footwear – attractive.
Other than that really, it seems as though I have reached a point in the pregnancy where not much is happening. I mean, there is a lot happening behind the scenes – I am currently forming more distinct facial features and working limbs thank you very much – but my body seems to have regulated somewhat. My sleeping isn’t too bad, I am managing to get through the day without facing complete and utter exhaustion and my eating habits have normalised once more.
For instance, today’s food haul compared to what it was a few weeks ago is hugely different:
I went out to dinner with Mum last night where she mentioned that I have been having a lot of fruit and not a whole lot of vegetables or iron-rich foods. So tonight I am thinking of having a huge bowl of greens – think broccoli, kale, beans, peas, etc. – to increase my iron intake. I will also lather this in butter, because, butter. This is also an easy dinner that requires next to no effort (as once I get home from work that is when the exhaustion hits).
Anyway – that is about it from me today.
P.s. now when I sit down, my belly touches my thighs. WHAT A MILESTONE.
