10 weeks until delivery date

I really cannot believe that soon I will be into single digit weeks, this pregnancy is really flying by.
Last week saw me finding things a little bit tougher.
Having developed a healthier lifestyle and really enjoying my fitness I have always tried to keep active during the pregnancy and well it just hasn't happened in the past week.
I still wear my fitbit and am still doing really well in challenges
 (when I say that I normally rank midway)

Here is this weeks bumpy pic at 29 weeks I seem to have rapidly grown!
 As I get bigger, so does baby and she seems to have less room now as the movements have definitely become more violent! 
Heartburn has returned mainly in the evenings and it's getting much more difficult to get comfortable despite having two additional pillows.

This weekend my 4 year old has suffered with a bad cough and cold so there has been a lot of bed hopping going on to try and prevent me from getting ill, unfortunately there isn't much that can be done to flush out the virus but we found that the calpol vapour plugs helped our son get to sleep and offer relief from the troublesome cough.

Changes have now been made in work as I struggle being on my feet all day as the baby seems to be putting pressure when I walk and I feel I need the toilet all of the time so I am looking forward to finishing work in 5 weeks time...........

It's the Final Countdown!

Here we are 28 weeks....
The third and final trimester.

I have to say I feel really good at the moment. I am suffering with heartburn so am having to be really careful to not eat anything to trigger it. It tends to hit me in the afternoon and at bedtime so after enjoying chocolate the past few weeks I have had to curb that as it does bring on the heartburn!

Many people are still asking me if I am pregnant? I never had this in my first pregnancy however I was 54lbs heavier!! This is my bump bang on 28 weeks, so neat!

Although I haven't felt much like exercising I still make use of my fitbit and track my activity levels daily and participate in the challenges with friends to try and always hit 10,000 steps. 
I am still quite proud of myself for being active in work and managing 19hrs a week on my feet, my previous job was office based so my movement was limited and I had a lot more water retention, this pregnancy has so far been amazing, I have had hardly any complaints apart from walking now is a lot harder as I feel as if I constantly need the toilet!

The nursery is still work in progress but this weekend saw the carpet being ordered along with the furniture so by the end of the month it should all be done!
