Also starting to struggle to bend down. Time to start picking things up with my toes again! I the shower this week I also realised I could not see my feet. Oh well, it had to happen some time!! I worked out that at my last weigh in, I weighed 78kgs, which means I've put on just under 10kgs in 10 weeks. It will be very interesting to see how much I've put on next week when I head to Brisbane for my big Morphology scan. And of course great to see the beautiful little ones again.
I finally got off to a yoga class last Saturday morning. It was hard. And not just because we did squats. There was so many poses that I just couldn't do. It was a bit of a bummer, as I'd hoped to be able to do it for another block at least. Nope. Last class this Saturday. Cue sad face.
While I was at yoga, Daniel had taken Jordan to a soccer carnival (his team won all 3 games!), and Jordan even managed to kick a goal and got a medallion- go J!! Then they spent the rest of the day doing 'boy things', which included taking him to see The Avengers at the movies in 3D. Apparently Jordan only jumped a few times, and that was when the Hulk came out.
While they were doing 'boy things', Amali was spending time with Grandi, and I got to rest......well, sort of. I did rest for about 2 hours, then I had to wash, trim and plait a pony for a competition the next day. I thoroughly enjoyed this time to myself, even though it took 3 hours. It used to take me 1.5 hours, but I have to move a lot slower now! Then I packed the car, picked the float up (thanks Karen!) and went inside exhausted.
An early wake up call on Mothers Day may not be ideal for some, but I loved watching Jordan compete at his last gymkhana (Pony Club competition), so when I asked him if he wanted to go to this one and his little face lit up.....it made my Mothers Day! Luckily for me I had a trusty side kick, Natalie, who is 11, do the leading for me (Jordan is not confident enough to be off lead yet), so I got to take photos and be the 'water boy' for the day.
After the long day I came home, utterly exhausted and had my mum wait on me with a lovely BBQ. Thanks Mum, you do so much for us!!! xxx
I also came home to a wall gone!!! Daniel spent the whole day tearing the rest of the wall down that Kerry had started for us, and he even vacuumed and mopped afterwards! Here are some before, during and after pics.
And the belly shots for 18 weeks. I'm stretching more and more, and so are the stretch marks!
I wonder when I will no longer be able to fit in to my black dress??
