Pregnancy | 38 Week Bumpdate

 

14 Days left!! Eeeeeeek!! Can you believe this little one is due in 2 weeks! It’s really flying by now but at the same time it’s taking forever! He could literally come any time now as I’m classed as full term.

I feel ready for him to make his appearance, I’ve got my hospital bags packed and the house is ready. However, we do have exterior works going on now which can’t be helped, it’s not the best time but we need it doing, the workers have been so great over it and said they’d try and get things done as quick as possible but with the bad weather it’s given ahead we can only hope.

How far along?? 38 Weeks!! Eeeeeeek!!

Maternity Clothes?? I’ve given up with even bothering to look for more, I’ve got 2 weeks left so sticking with what I have, I can’t wait to be able to have a good clear out of my wardrobe and sort my clothes out.

Sleep: Wow, I’ve been having some really good nights sleep. I’m waking up feeling great, I’m going to bed feeling tired. It’s been so long since I’ve actually felt like this and not feeling tired all the time. Starting to get more tired in the day and needing to rest a bit more.

 

Miss Anything?? To be honest I’m over the things I miss now, just not sure how long it’ll take before I go back to having what I can’t now.

 

Movement: He’s started moving so much more and for longer periods of time at night, it’s quite painful still but it must be uncomfortable for him now as well as myself.

Gender: Most definitely a boy.

Cravings: No cravings at all!!

Labour Signs: I find I’m getting much stronger Braxton Hicks now and they are quite painful, nothing really to tell me he’s going to make an appearance though!!

Symptoms: Still drinking lots of water, eating loads of fruit and veg too now. He’s dropped a lot more and you can see how low my bump is getting. There’s lots of pressure on my back and hips now and it’s really quite painful. Getting tired again very easily and back to sleeping on the sofa for comfort.

Belly Button In or Out?? It’s completely popped out now and points to my toes!! Haha!!

Mood: Starting to feel fed up and really agitated, I’m a lot more moody again too. I’m trying not to be and the family must be fed up of me moaning! Haha!!

Best Moment This Week: Getting the house clean and tidy and having everything ready for this baby’s arrival. I’ve been doing my hypnobirthing course too so can’t wait to put it into practice.

Looking Forward To: Little mans arrival now!

 

I’ve had my 38 week check with the midwife this week, everything is the same as before, it’s just a case of waiting for this one to decide when he’s ready, we have another appointment booked in on my due date for a sweep if he’s not made an appearance by then. But fingers crossed he comes soon.

 

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you all have a fab weekend.

 

Lots of Love
