Oh, for some good, deep sleep…

I’m not getting any 😦 I can’t remember the last time I slept solidly through the night, and I need all the sleep I can get before the baby arrives! It’s too hot, I need the loo, I have heartburn, the neighbours slam the door, anything that can wake me does wake me. Boo.

Anyway, my work is now done. The big project I was working on is now finished and I have tied up various loose ends, so I can now officially put my feet up. Maybe I will manage to catch up on some sleep later on…

I went for a swim yesterday. I have cancelled my membership for now, but I’m paid up until around the end of the month (I think), so should be able to go a few more times before the BIG DAY. I went in the afternoon, so it was nice and quiet and I managed 30 lengths – I would have carried on to 1k but I started to feel heartburn and that’s not very comfortable. If you are wondering why heartburn happens during pregnancy, it’s because of the relaxin in my body softening everything up. This includes softening of the digestive tract and this causes a reflux action, meaning the acids in my stomach come back up. Yuk. I’m quite lucky really because I’ve only started feeling it recently and it’s not all the time, just if I bend a lot or eat a big meal. I gave in and bought some Gaviscon for emergencies but it really is quite disgusting and I wouldn’t say I noticed any difference. But, if you like aniseed flavoured snot, you’ll love it!
