This last week has been possibly the longest week of pregnancy ever. It really is such a waiting game. At this point in my pregnancy with Alanah I had only just started maternity leave and was about to head off to London to meet Annabelle. I didn’t have as much time to sit around and when I did, I was sleeping and enjoying my time off work. This time round has been harder, because it really feels as if I’ve been sitting around waiting for baby girl. Yes, I’ve been busy with Alanah, but I’ve certainly had more down time than last pregnancy.
Mini mini is about 19.75 inches and possibly weighs around 3.08kg. As of last week she is considered fully cooked, so really she is just sat in there getting her chubby bubby on.
Here’s a fun fact; before pregnancy, the average uterus weighs 2 ounces. At this point in pregnancy it now weighs about 2 and a half pounds. At least that’s the best part of 2 pounds I know I’lll lose relatively quickly. I’m so nervous about shedding the weight this time round. Fingers crossed breast feeding will do it’s job again and not only nourish smooshie, but get this ass back to it’s perky self.
How far along? 38 weeks Total weight gain: Pig should be a weight Maternity clothes? Whatever fits Stretch marks? None. I’m just weirdly veiny Sleep: Up until Monday I was sleeping well. Last few nights have sucked. Best moment this week: Tuesday morning I was needing a cuddle and Ross was beyond dead to the world so I snuck into Lani’s room and got into her cot with her. She was totally to let me in and even more up for a cuddle. Miss Anything? Being comfortable and the ability to sit like a “lady”. Movement: Still rather wiggly, but I can definitely feel that lack of space is causing an issue. Food cravings: Nothing has changed, just chewing gum and ice. Though the amount of ice I now need to function is increasing daily. Thank God my freezer freezes crazy quick. Anything making you queasy or sick: Nop. Gender: Girl Labor Signs: No, but I’d like some please. Symptoms: Heart burn, sciatic nerve, weird groin trapped nerve thing, pelvic pain, back pain and skin like a 13 year old. I’M SO MUCH FUN TO BE AROUND. Belly Button in or out? Why this question is still here is beyond me. Happy or Moody most of the time: Until Tuesday I was a happy bunny. Last two days can shove it. Mind you the weather has taken a serious turn; it may be contributing. Looking forward to: I have a hair cut booked on Thursday and a wax on Saturday. I’m going to be the prettiest lady in labor ever.
