The Best Sleep in Months!

I finally had the best sleep last night.I slept solidly (no pee trips, kicking on my diaphragm, breathlessness, sore back etc) from 11.30 - 6am! It was the best feeling looking at the clock and not seeing 3am! I wondered if I'd sleep again, but the next thing I knew it was 7.30am and then I must have dozed off again and woke up at 9am!

I totally needed it as I've been waking up early every day (as well as various times through the night) and getting on with work as it has been on my mind and I just wanted to get through things.
I was a bit concerned at the start of the week that I wasn't going to get through things, but so far so good. Training with my admin assistant has gone really well and we only have a few more things to cover and refresh today.
Training of my senior maths tutor also went really well. I essentially planned for him for the next month while he is getting used to the resources and he can tweak it as he becomes more confident. God bless him, he had asked his girlfriend to marry him yesterday and then had to come in to be trained - how keen is that! I was so excited for him - always great to hear exciting news!
My training day for Sat is set up, I just need to organise the food and the last bits of organisation for the day. I'm looking forward to it actually as it is nice to get all the staff together as people work on different days.
Friday will see me tie-ing up the accounts for the month so I can forget about everything for a while.

Sooooo cannot wait until Sunday - not least for the fact I won't have to wear my work trousers any more as my belly is so low and so big that they simply feel like someone giving me a belly wedgie whenever I sit down! Ha Ha!


As I said the other day, this is not a huge priority this week as I need to be able to get everything done. However I did get for a 3 mile walk on Monday and I think I'll do the same tomorrow (Friday) and If I'm not totally shattered I might try an do something gentle on Sunday.

I had to wear my belly support on Monday for my walk so I'm pretty sure running is going to have to be put on hold until post delivery, but I'm pretty chuffed with how long I managed - week 34.
I still plan to get to the gym and swim in the next few weeks while I'm waiting for babba to arrive though. Swimming is particularly freeing I must say. I'll keep up with the Pilates too I think, but monitor it carefully as I don't want another false start like last week! It'll be nice to be able to exercise, knowing I don't have to get to work.
