Here’s me this week

This week has actually gone quite quickly after me moaning about time going so slowly!!  I think having Arthur’s birthday to keep us all very busy definitely helped!

Braxton hicks are continuing daily now, sometimes even a couple times a day.

Kicks are continuing to be pretty painful too!!  They are also waking me up every night!!

My sleep in general is pretty rubbish again, therefore I’m really tired and very grumpy!!  Couple this with Arthur not napping every day any more (despite definitely still needing to!) and you get a few very long afternoons!!

I also had killer heartburn again last night Urgh!!

Okay, time to stop moaning….no more moans for the rest of the post I promise!!

After being told I’d not put any weight on last week I have pretty much not stopped eating.  I will be so surprised if I still haven’t gained weight by next week!

I realised on the 1st July that we could officially start saying that we would be having a baby next month, that was so exciting!  Also, a little bit scary!  I feel like it hasn’t truly sunk in that soon we will be 4 not 3!  I’m sure there is loads we need to sort out but I’m not really sure what!!!

So, it’s time for our countdown to my Caesarian!  We will be meeting our little boy bump in:
33 weeks pregnant, countdown to Caesarian section date

I’ll be back next week, hopefully I wouldn’t have been told off by the midwife for anything this time!!

29 weeks pregnant

I’m 29 weeks pregnant, if you missed last weeks post check out my 28 week update.

This week little boy bump weighs just under 1.2kg (about the same as a butternut squash) and is around 39 cm long!
His lungs and muscles are continuing to mature and his little bones are hardening up!

Waist measurement: 41 inches (+0 inches)

Here’s me this week (yep I’m wearing Mark’s shorts, we are well and truly at that point!)

I’m feeling pretty good despite sleeping really poorly most of the week.

I all of a sudden feel MASSIVE, despite my waist measurement not actually getting any bigger, I’m still definitely growing! I’m really noticing how slow I’m getting, especially getting up our stairs and when chasing Arthur! 
Arthur has been showing lots of attention to little boy bump again after a a little while of not being that interested!  He’s started waving hello to the baby and giving cuddles.  He still hasn’t noticed the movements, think it goes a little beyond his understanding, but now they are getting stronger and stronger, so I hope he will realise soon because I think he will love it!
You may have read about the toddler nap battles I’m having. We have now had two days in a row of flat out refusal to nap and man am I not loving it! The couple of hours he usually naps is when I get my rest in for the day and have some me time so fingers crossed this is just a very short phase!

I’m getting lots and lots of movement.  He seems to be getting really active and having a lot more awake time especially during the day, I love it!

Next week I will be back at the midwife and I should also get the date of of the 32 week scan.  We can’t wait to see our little guy again!

Speaking of seeing him, we will be seeing him for real in just
