I’m officially only 6 weeks away from my due date and I’m really excited but nervous about having a newborn in the house again. I just hope that the other boys will be able to sleep.
I’m glad you’ve all enjoyed reading my bumpdates but I can’t believe they’re almost at an end. I also finish work a week on Sunday so really excited about being on maternity leave so I can make sure I have everything ready and I can pack my hospital bags. I still don’t feel prepared for this baby’s arrival.
How far along?? 34 Weeks.
Maternity Clothes?? I’ve given up with even bothering to look for more, I’ve got 6 weeks left so sticking with what I have for now, still no coat but I’ve found a solution and been wearing one of the OH’s.
Sleep: I’ve actually had a good few days with sleeping actually, but I still feel drained and like I’ve not had enough. I’ve found a few things that have been helping me and bump to relax but I’m still very uncomfortable and sore. So glad I have a pregnancy pillow though.
Miss Anything?? To be honest I’m over the things I miss. I did get a couple of Alcohol-Free Strawberry and Lime Kopparbergs from my lovely boss in a little Christmas treat box.
Movement: I don’t think this baby actually has a pattern because he seems to move at different times each day, his movements have been a little bit more painful and I find it hurts when I feel him moving down which I don’t remember getting with my first pregnancy.
Gender: Most definitely a boy.
Cravings: No cravings at all!!
Labour Signs: I’ve had a few Braxton Hicks but nope nothing else!!
Symptoms: He’s putting lots of pressure on my back and hips now so it’s becoming much more painful especially when I’m walking. I feel him on my bladder and I’ve been drinking so much water because I feel a bit dehydrated from the constant peeing!! Been getting cramp in my legs but not as bad as the last couple of weeks. I’m feeling very heavy as he’s dropping a little. I have been getting odd pains in my tummy too which are from the skin stretching and my C-Section scar is starting to itch like mad. Heartburn, my god the heartburn!!
Belly Button In or Out?? It’s completely popped out now.
Mood: I’ve actually started to pick up a little bit more and I think it’s because I’ve only got a few more shifts left in work so I have more time at home to do everything I need too without feeling stressed about going to work then coming home and trying to do everything. Still don’t feel prepared.
Best Moment This Week: Getting Christmas out of the way including the decorations and finally getting the living room ready for the fire place to be delivered next week. We only have to wallpaper the wall with the fireplace and dress the room and it’s done!
Looking Forward To: Finishing the living room completely and being able to start with sorting the rest of the baby stuff out including my hospital bags.
I’m still measuring big but that’s because I think he’s going to be a big long boy, I can’t wait to meet him. I’ve had another iron count taken this week to see if I need to carry on with my iron tablets or if I can stop taking them. I will also be seeing my midwife every 2 weeks until I go into labour.
Thank you so much for reading and I hope you all have a fab weekend.
Lots of Love
