Full term!

37 weeks, and now classed as full term!

37 weeks

I simply cannot believe it, that we have come this far and that we have reached this point.  It still feels like yesterday that those pink lines appeared on that stick.

This pregnancy has been completely different to my other two, not that they were identical but this one seems the complete polar opposite.  I still believe we will have another girl joining us, I guess we will find out soon enough.  I am now trying to enjoy the last few days/weeks/hours? of pregnancy I have left.  Trying to enjoy and add to my memory, every kick, hiccup and movement.  Trying to just take time for me and baby.

I am trying my best not to think about labour, in fact every time I do I get nervous and feel sick.  The labour with my youngest is still fresh in my memory, and to say I am dreading the experience for a third time would be a complete understatement.  I am very nervous and scared.  

After weighing up facts, figures and everything else I have finally made my decision on feeding baby, and I may share this later.  I feel happy with my decision and choice and know it is right not only for me but for my family too.

37 weeks +1

This past week has not really seen any changes from the last update.  I am still getting strong downward surges and Braxton Hicks.  Heartburn seems to be a common thing at the moment, and I seem to have it more than I do not.

To answer the most common question at the moment, No I am not fed up and No I am not ready.  I am not fed up of pregnancy, I am fed up of not being able to do things but not of pregnancy and am more than happy for baby to stay put.  I decided to put together a short video

I am starting to get really tired as I cannot sleep for more than 2 hours without waking up for the toilet.  I also cannot turn over in my sleep and have to wake up to do so.  

Fingers crossed I have another bump update next week as I am not quite ready yet!

  2. Congrats! Not long now until baby makes an appearance, how exciting! I'm just 17 weeks but the discomfort at night time is kicking in so I know I'll be awful when I get near the end. I never experienced BH with my first so I do wonder if I will this time. Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays! Kaye xo
