This week has been a non stop flurry of work, meetings for Logan and trying to get organised. I was becoming conscious that I was so busy I wasn't paying attention if the baby was moving much or not so I've made more of an effort to pay attention to movements and note them down mentally. All is good though, baby is kicking plenty and I'll continue to pay attention now. Sometimes life gets busy though and it's very easy to forget.
So yeah, busy week. The other half and I had a catch up with the Autism group we used to attend when Logan was at nursery. It was nice seeing old faces and also hearing how the other children are getting on. We also had a meeting at Logan's school to see how he's settling in so far. He seems to be enjoying himself but does struggle with conforming to the rules and structure hence why he has some extra support on hand.
Finally handed a copy of my MAT B1 Form in at work so that's all gone off to HR for processing. Feels like it's all becoming so real now, not that it didn't before obviously but things seem to be moving faster. There's already an advert went out to find mat cover for my job and I've decided how long I'll be taking for mat leave and when it'll start. I suppose I can be a bit more organised this time round due to having a planned c-section lined up.
Still trying to decide what to do for the baby nursery and looking around for people who can paint words, murals etc so will have to get that organised soon. I've managed to get a hall and entertainment booked for Logan's birthday party later in the year so that's a weight off my mind but need to organise a cool cake now and decide on game prizes, room décor, food etc. We're going for a Lego Marvel Superheroes theme which should be really fun to do. Last year we did pirates and themed everything round this which was fab - hard work though!
I'm starting to feel like my insides are being squashed now. It's not so bad when standing up but when I'm sitting at my desk at work I just feel compressed. I get out of breath a lot quicker too but my womb is already up beside my belly button so there's not much room for the lungs and diaphragm in there anymore. Think I'm going to struggle as the baby gets bigger.
