35 weeks pregnant

I’m 35 weeks pregnant.  Check out my 34 week update if you missed it!

This week our little guy is around 46cm long and weighing around 2.4kg (around the same weight as a honeydew melon!)
His little kidneys are now fully functioning!

Here’s me this week:

Wow, this week has been a total blur.  It was Mark’s last week of work.  There was no letting the foot off the gas for the last week for him, it was crazy which of course ment that it was crazy at home too!!!
Couple that with Arthur not napping most days this week, makes for one tired pregnant mama!!

My baking urge has continued on.  It’s definitely making us all happy having lots of yummy food to eat, especially since we have all been so busy!

Braxton hicks are continuing along with heartburn (ouch!)

I have been thinking about what needs to be done before we head to Mahe as well as what I need to pack to take to Mahe with us.

First of all the house needs a really good clean and tidy up, we have to go through all of Arthur’s baby clothes to see what we need for this little man.  We also need to rearrange our bedroom a little to see where the cot, changing table etc will go!

For Mahe, I kinda need to double pack, for the week we are there before and then the for the 4-5 days I’m in hospital as well.  Luckily we won’t be on Mahe for as long as we were last time.  I definitely overpacked for the hospital last time and I’m keen not to do that again.  I want to take as little as possible and make it as easy to access as possible!

I’ve had no midwife appointment this week but I’ll be back next week (hopefully with my usual midwife this time!).  I also have another scan to check that our little guy is growing okay as he was a little small at our 32 week scan…..I’m not worried, we had the same with Arthur!

This weeks countdown to baby is a pretty exciting one as now we meet our little guy in
35 weeks pregnant countdown to Caesarian section 4 weeks

It’s starting to feel now, which it knew it would once Mark finished work!  We have just over 2 weeks until we go to Mahe too!  I’m trying to stay calm but I’m pretty notorious for my pre-trip panics and add having a baby in there and my poor brain goes into a bit of a meltdown!!

I’ll be back next week, hopefully feeling more organised and to share how my midwife appointment and scan went at 36 weeks!

31 weeks pregnant

I’m 31 weeks pregnant!  If you missed last week, take a peek at my 30 weeks update! 

This week our little boy is over 41cm long and is weighing around 1.5kg (how perfect for our little Seychelles baba!) 
He apparently is heading for a growth spurt and is starting to get nice and squishy, ready for cuddles!

Here’s me this week
31 weeks pregnant

If I could sum up this week in one word it would be: TIRED!!
Oh my goodness I am SO SO tired.  

It has however, been a relatively quiet week.  I’ve made sure that I’ve slowed down and taken it easy!

I have still been doing my online fitness programme, and it’s slowed down a lot now to match my stage of pregnancy which is great!

Last weekend we had the school Mark works at annual dinner dance.  It was lovely to get a night out and get dressed up!

A sad update this week is that on Thursday I had to take my rings off!!  On the positive side I had to so that a lot earlier last time, although I can’t quite remember when I did it.
Last time I was SO upset about it.  We hadn’t even been married a year by then so it was still so new and exciting to have them on.
Not that it’s not exciting to have them on still of course, but this time I know that they will be back on soon and I’m happy I lasted longer then I did before!!
It’s weird because it was literally overnight that my rings were fine and then all of a sudden not!  My feet are a little swollen now too!

I’m really feeling like time has slowed down now.  The second trimester flew by and now it feels like it’s ages to go until our little boy gets here.
In reality I know it’s not.  In fact it’s only 
31 weeks pregnant, countdown to Caesarian section
until we get to meet him!!

We have our 32 week scan next week too which is really exciting! 

I’ll be back next week to let you know how my scan went as well as the usual updates! See you then.
