My love and hate relationship with...maternity jeans...


Ever since I got pregnant I knew there would come a day when my growing belly would make it impossible to do up my regular jeans and I would have to consider other options like buying maternity jeans...I am not gonna lie, I was not thrilled with the idea.

Things are getting real...29 weeks :)


Time truly flies, before I knew it we hit the 29 weeks mark...and things started to feel real and heavy...I am fine in general, however in the evenings I begin to think that I must put on at least 5 kgs during the day as my belly feels like it weighs much more than it did in the morning...I am also noticing that this little basketball that I am carrying is definitely slowing me down, things that I used to do without even thinking about take much longer and I am finding myself sitting down and taking short breaks between tasks. It feels quite surreal as I am usually pretty fast ( I move fast, I walk fast, I talk fast), but these days I have been forced to take it easy and to remember that there is an additional passenger on board :) and I cannot carry on like I normally would. I had a chance to talk to some other mums-to-be, which made me realised that I am super lucky in the sleep department as I have no troubles sleeping and pretty much manage to sleep through the whole night (occasionally with one toilet break). Fingers crossed this pattern will continue. Our little Peanut is very active and makes sure that I know she is there (something I am definitely going to miss when she is born). I also started craving ice cream, which would not be weird as I LOVE ice cream in general, but the strange bit is that I am craving ONLY chocolate flavour and I am more of a vanilla ice cream fan...So for the last couple of weeks I have been having chocolate ice cream on a daily basis and funnily enough Julian (also vanilla flavour fan) joined me in this new addiction ;)

Czas ucieka w zastraszajacym tempie, mam wrazenie, ze zanim zdazylam mrugnac na liczniku ukazal sie 29 tydzien...i wszystko zaczela wydawac sie bardziej realne i zdecydowanie ciezsze...Ogolnie czuje sie dobrze, aczkolwiek wieczorami wydaje mi sie, ze musialam przytyc przynajmniej 5 kg danego dnia, bo brzuch zadaje sie wazyc przynajmniej 3 razy wiecej niz rano...Zauwazylam takze, ze ta slodka pilka do koszykowki, ktora jest do mnie przytwierdzona na stale, zdecydowanie mnie spowalnia. Rzeczy, ktore do tej pory robilam bez zastanowienia, zajmuja znacznie wiecej czasu i czesto musze robic krotkie przerwy pomiedzy poszegolnymi czynnosciami, co sprawia, ze czuje sie jakbym dobijala 80-tki...Ciezko mi sie do tego przyzywczaic, bo normalnie jestem energiczna osoba, ktora szybko sie porusza, szybko chodzi, szybko mowi, ale ostatnimi czasy zostalam zmuszona, zeby troche zwolnic, bo dodatkowa pasazerka na pokladzie sprawia, ze niemozliwe jest juz funkcjonowanie na pelnych obrotach. Mialam okazje poznac i porozmawiac z innymi przyszlymi mamami i po tych spotkaniach zdalam sobie sprawie, ze jestem wielka szczesciara jesli chodzi o spanie, bo nie mam najmniejszych problemow z zasypianiem i generalnie budze sie dopiero kiedy z cudownych objec Morfeusza wyrywa mnie bezlitosny alarm w telefonie. Trzymam kciuki, ze taki stan rzeczy utrzyma sie przez kolejnych 11 tygodni. Nasz maly Orzeszek a raczej Orzeszka jest bardzo aktywna i regularnie daje mi znac, ze ma sie dobrze (zdecydowanie bede za tym tesknic po Jej narodzinach). Nowoscia ostatnich kilku tygodni jest moja niezaspokojona chec na lody, co samo w sobie nie byloby niczym dziwnym, bo generalnie UWIELBIAM lody, ale zaskakujacy jest fakt, ze mam ochote tylko i wylacznie na lody czekoladowe, ktorych normalnie nie jadam (jestem w obozie fanow lodow waniliowych). Takze od ponad dwoch tygodni codziennie pochlaniam porcje lodow czekoladowych i, zeby bylo smieszniej Julian (rowniez fan smaku waniliowego) bardzo chetnie mi towarzyszy w tym uzaleznieniu ;)

House tour - kitchen and lounge (update)


I promised you probably a hundred times that I was going to show you some photos after we have made some major changes to our place, but as as always I have been waiting until everything is finished and perfect...

Life with 25 week bump :)


Since the early stages of pregnancy I promised myself that I would take weekly photos of my bump to document the whole journey...well, that was the plan, however with my master procrastinating skills  I am way behind the schedule. So far there have been photos taken at 19 weeks and 25 weeks. Considering that I am almost 29 weeks it is rather shocking! In my defence I must add that for the last 3 weeks the weather was really shitty, basically raining EVERY single day. However the last couple of days there has been a significant improvement so there is a chance for taking some photos tomorrow :)

Weekend away



Life has been pretty crazy for us lately. We are slowly getting ready for the arrival of our girl, which means I am spending endless hours looking at nursery room inspirations, coming up with different ideas every 5 min and asking Julian if he can make this or that...However at this point I think I can safely say that after hours of discussions we have a pretty clear picture of what we want the room to look like. Apart from all baby related activities we are  both working full-time, actually Julian has been working time and a half so there is not much time left to do any of the fun stuff that apparently we ought to be doing before the baby arrives...
