Last week in the Netherlands and last week before I finally have a week off…. seriously need it! Have been working all through summer and now that everybody in the office is coming back after 3 or 4 weeks of holidays, full of energy and super motivated to kick ass at work, I realized I am done and need a break as well. So I am counting down the days to go to the beach and disconnect completely. So this lovely laptop will stay in the suitcase as much as possible. This also means our weeks in the Netherlands have come to an end, can´t believe how fast these weeks have flown by! Beforehand I thought so many weeks here would be an eternity but it really all went by so fast.
Was great to have some more time with family and friends to really catch-up instead of the usual long week / quick midweek visit where we need to squeeze in very quick coffee / lunch / dinner dates to make sure we see everyone. We still have a wedding ahead this weekend and family reunion before we fly to Menorca on Tuesday morning for the holidays. So still enough quality time with friends and family! Some pics of this week:
How I am feeling
It´s getting a bit old, but I am still exhausted. Somehow this second pregnancy is wearing me down! Also some typical pregnancy problems but hey, can´t complain at all, feeling pretty good! That is physical, mentally I mostly worry about the whole birth thingy that obviously needs to happen at the end of this pregnancy. Giving birth has always been a tricky concept for me but with L´s birth which was slightly traumatic, it didn´t get much better. Therefore, I decided to do a session with a birth counselor. I was recommended this person who is a midwife but is dedicating her career now to couple sessions to prepare you for giving birth. It was really good and I feel a lot calmer right now. It was very good to just sit down and go over everything that happened when L was born, what that means and especially what it doesn´t mean for a next birth, and how I can try to be less panicky about the whole thing. Probably a too long story for this weekly bump update so I might write a longer post about this session.
This week I have been going crazy with the gummies…. But again, not sure if that´s a craving or I am just using the pregnancy as an excuse.
Haven´t stepped on the scale this week so will leave this one for next week!
I am a bit worried about how to bring everything back to Spain so I have really refrained from shopping this week. Might go crazy when we get back home ;).
