38 weeks pregnant

I had written this post while we were on Mahe getting ready to have Freddie!  Thought I’d publish this so I can look back on it and have the complete bump update set!!   Better late than never right!?  Oh, and I rather rubbishly didn’t […]

37 weeks pregnant

I’m 37 weeks pregnant, that means I’m officially full term which is really exciting!!  If you missed my 36 week update be sure to check it out! Weight 67.7 kg (that’s +1.1kg in one week eeek!!) Here’s me this week I’ve had my final midwife […]

36 weeks pregnant

I’m 36 weeks pregnant!  If you missed last week take a look at my 35 week update

 

Measurements

Weight: 66kg (eeek well and truly over the 10 stone mark now!!)

Fundal measurement: ooops forgot this one!
Estimated baby weight from scan: 2.4kg

Here’s me this week

36 weeks pregnant bump shot
Hurrah, Mark has finished work!!!  It has been amazing having him home!  We have made big progress in getting organised for the arrival of our little man.
We are getting so excited now, and seeing all the little clothes washed and ready for him to wear has really made it all feel real (about time!)

As you can see from my measurements I’m now over 10 stone so I’ve put about 2 stone on in total so far.  I’m not worried about it, I’m not going to do any reading about whether this is “normal” or “too much” I don’t care right now.  I can worry about it afterwards!

My hands are really swollen now and are pretty hideous, think baseball mits!  The last couple of nights my feet have been swollen by the end of the day too, we went to a friends for dinner and I couldn’t get my shoes back on when we left!!
The midwife didn’t seem concerned as my blood pressure was fine, so again, I’ll not worry about it!

I’m struggling with sleep, I fall asleep very very fast but I’m waking lots trying to get comfortable.

I had a scan this week and we were told that little guy is weighing about 2.4kg right now and will be on track to weigh right about the same as Arthur did, small but perfectly formed!  Most importantly though he is very healthy in there!!  It was amazing to see him!  We got to see his face and we reckon he’s going to look just like Arthur!

So now there is only

36 weeks pregnant!  Countdown to Caesarian section.  Three weeks

Until we meet our Little guy (well actually it’s 2 weeks and 4 days as of today!!)
It’s also only 9 days until we go to Mahe so all very exciting!!

I have another midwife appointment next Thursday, my last one in Praslin! By next week we should be all ready, eeek still quite a lot to do!!
I’ll be back next week!

I’m 33 weeks pregnant!  If you missed last week, check out my 32 week update!

Here’s me this week

33 weeks pregnant bump shot

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
So exciting!!!

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