My Pregnancy Week 29
Last week in my twenties.
My pregnancy week 29 – Last week in my twenties.
I feel like age and weeks of pregnancy are similar. Once you hit 30, things change!
This is my last week of being in my ‘twenties’ of my pregnancy! Crazy!
It’s ironic, we went to a thirtieth just last weekend. Very proud of myself, stayed up and was on the dance floor until 11.30 pm. Then I was done. It turns very quickly, and at the end I was certainly ready for bed!
But hey, I was aiming to get to at least 10pm before I piked, so happy with myself that I made it past 11pm!
Then the next day was my baby shower. So yep, Sunday night I was tired.
And waking Monday morning I stayed in bed a lot longer than usual! My body needed the rest. All that dancing and celebrating, I need recovery time now days!
We have just come back from a lovely weekend in the Melbourne’s city. Everyone has been saying to us “go out into the city, because when you have a baby you won’t want to go that far”. I still believe we will though.
It’s not hard for us to get in there, even if it’s just for an afternoon of exploring. Given of course, we have a baby that likes to be in the pram or the carrier.
We stayed in a hotel just opposite the Queen Victoria Market and it was perfect. We hopped on and off of trams as we explored our home city.
We LOVE that type of stuff. Even in a place where we are so familiar with where everything is, there’s always something new popping up!
We explored the lane ways and admired the new graffiti walls.
We went across the Southbank and had our lunch sitting watching the rowers go by.
Well, to be fair, we spend probably a good 15 to 20 minutes watching this one family try to get in a row boat, none of them looked like they were having a good time! It was quite hilarious to watch!
We walked over to the Night Noodle Market and checked that out, and then sat and people watched for a while. Probably one of my favourite things to do!
As we made our way back home, we walked past Town Hall and decided seeing a comedy show would be fun!
So, we looked them up and decided on one, there were a few seats still available at the door, so if we finished up dinner in time, we decided we’d go to that.
Back to our hotel room to freshen up, and off to explore our dinner options!
We had a few places recommended to try, but we ended up stumbling across a very cute pizza and pasta restaurant that was absolutely buzzing. And so glad we did!
The pizza and pasta dish we got to share were incredible!
We were so relaxed, just chatting away and enjoying our food, that by the time we checked out watches.. we’d missed the comedy show! But to be fair, we didn’t really care!
We even went into a new bar that’s like a big floating boat on the river. It’s so cool!
It reminded me so much of New York. And get this, it even had a pool!
It’s where all the beautiful people were, you know what I mean! The place to be, and to be seen! Except if you’re pregnant.
But I didn’t care, we looked around and then we left. Not really the place to be unless you have a cocktail in your hand!
We continued to explore Melbourne on foot, seeing the fire flames across Yarra River and then making our way back to rest our sore little feet!
The next morning, we had a big breakfast, then explored the Victoria market, got some fresh produce and then made our way back home! It was such a perfect little get away.
It’s also made me realised how important it is to get out of the house. I absolutely LOVE our new house. I’m so grateful for it, it’s beautiful with natural light and surrounded by trees.
It’s also where there are never ending chores.
It was funny to observe both of us, as we walked in the door, it was like a switch was flipped and we both went back into our ‘to do’ lists.
Once this gorgeous little bub comes into our lives, I really want to make an effort to try and get out when we can.
Even if it’s just for a short amount of time, it will help us to refresh and reset. Which is important for anyone!
Pregnancy Week 29 – My tips for this week
1. Enjoy some quality time with your partner. The pram shopping can wait, dedicate a weekend to just you two is important right now.
2. Don’t feel you have to do something new. Doing something you have done before can be lots of fun, especially if it’s been a while since you have done it! We loved exploring our home city, and have done it many times before.
3.Schedule in times to get out of the house.
Even if it’s just for a picnic, or a walk-through nature.
Get away from your neighbourhood and your every day, you need to refresh yourself now and as best as you can, remember how important it is for when bub comes along.
