Pregnancy | 40 Week Bumpdate

 

Well, well, well here we are at 40 weeks and no baby just yet! It’s been a tough couple of weeks, pregnancy has really taken its toll on me. I’m feeling much more tired and I even ache when I walk. This baby boy is literally digging in everywhere.

I’m trying to rest where I can. I get my housework done first thing. I’ve got workers doing the the exterior of the house too still which is slightly stressful but I’m trying to not let it bother me that much, when we’ve had bad weather they haven’t been here.

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.

Pregnancy | 36 Week Bumpdate

ARGH!!!! 4 weeks until my due date! I can’t believe I’m only 4 weeks away from having this little boy! We still have no names and I’ve still not packed my hospital bags. But I have now finished work and I am finally feeling like I’m getting somewhere and slowly feeling ready for this little one to make his appearance.

I’m glad you’ve all enjoyed reading my bumpdates but I can’t believe they’re almost at an end. I’ll have to do baby updates instead. I’m so glad I’ve been writing these though. Gosh, I didn’t realise I’ve been such a moany cow this pregnancy though! Haha!!

Pregnancy | 34 Week Bumpdate

I’m officially only 6 weeks away from my due date and I’m really excited but nervous about having a newborn in the house again. I just hope that the other boys will be able to sleep.

I’m glad you’ve all enjoyed reading my bumpdates but I can’t believe they’re almost at an end. I also finish work a week on Sunday so really excited about being on maternity leave so I can make sure I have everything ready and I can pack my hospital bags. I still don’t feel prepared for this baby’s arrival.

Pregnancy | 32 Week Bumpdate

Wow, 32 weeks!! I’m officially on my 8 week countdown until my due date. I’m starting to get really excited but at the same time nervous about having a newborn again.


I’m also really pleased that you’re enjoying my little Bumpdates and following my journey. So what’s been going on this week?? 

 
How far along?? 32 Weeks. 

 

 

 

 
Maternity Clothes?? I’ve given up on the maternity clothes altogether now as i only have 8 weeks to go so I’m just living in my baggy jumpers, jumper dresses, leggings and jeggings. 
 
 
Sleep: Really not sleeping the best getting too uncomfortable I get sore when I sleep on my sides I get back, neck and shoulder ache sitting propped up, but surviving on what sleep I do get. 
 
Miss Anything?? Lately it’s been red wine, I’d kill for a red wine or baileys. 
 
Movement: Still not worked out his pattern but the bigger I get the more I have to monitor his movements so been wearing a little kick counter bracelet from my Dear Bump subscription box. You can really see my tummy moving now and feel a heel or his bum sticking out.   
 
Gender: Most definitely a boy.
 
Cravings: No cravings at all!!
 
Labour Signs: Feel like I’ve had a few Braxton Hicks but nope nothing else!!
 
Symptoms: Lots of lower back pain and pain around my pelvis which is from the growing still. Been getting cramp in my legs aswell and aching neck and shoulders. I’m feeling very heavy and feel like he’s dropping a little. I have been getting odd pains in my tummy too which are from the skin stretching and my C-Section scar is starting to itch like mad. Heartburn, my god the heartburn!! 
 
Belly Button In or Out?? It’s completely popped out now. 
 
Mood: Tired, agitated but trying to not let things bother me. I can cope with the lack of sleep but my hormones are still all over the place, I’m grumpy and emotional. Still don’t feel prepared for anything but at the same time trying not to do too much.  
 
Best Moment This Week: Getting the living room decorated in time for Christmas, we still need to wait on our new fire to be delivered in the new year but yay! Only our bedroom to do now and that can wait!   

Looking Forward To: Getting my Christmas decorations up and sorting out baby’s clothes, pram and bedding so that it’s all nice and clean and ready for when he arrives.


I don’t have to go for anymore growth scans they’re happy he’s the size he is, could just be another long boy and they’ve guestimated his weight at 4lb already so we may just have a big boy on our hands. I do have to monitor his movements though and if they are reduced I have to call the midwife straight away.    

 

 
I hope you all have a fab weekend and can’t wait to hear what your all up to this week.

 

 


Lots of Love

Pregnancy | 30 Week Bumpdate

Hello Third Trimester!! Wow, 30 weeks!! I’m officially only 10 weeks away from my due date! It’s starting to fly by now. 
 
I’m also really pleased that you’re enjoying my little Bumpdates and following my journey and I’ve really enjoyed recording it this way. So what’s been going on this week?? Let’s jump right into it!

How far along?? 30 Weeks. 

 

Maternity Clothes?? I’ve given up on the maternity jeans but still in need and looking for a good maternity coat! I seem to live in jumpers and jumper dresses now. 
 

 

Sleep: Still not sleeping well, I had a week or so where I’ve been able to have a good few hours in bed but I’m back on the sofa again and back to not sleeping as much. 
 
Miss Anything?? Just the same old sleep.
 
Movement: Feeling him all the more now which is great and you can see my belly moving now when he does, still trying to figure out his pattern but he doesn’t seem to have one.    
 
Gender: Most definitely a boy.
 
Cravings: No cravings at all!!
 
Labour Signs: Nope!!
 
Symptoms: Lots of lower back pain and pain around my pelvis which is from the growing, I think. I’m feeling very heavy and achy too. I have been getting odd pains in my tummy too which are from the skin stretching and my C-Section scar is starting to itch like mad. Heartburn, my god the heartburn!! 
 
Belly Button In or Out?? It’s completely popped out now. 
 
Mood: Tired, agitated but trying to not let things bother me. I can cope with the lack of sleep but my hormones are still all over the place and I can’t wait to start to feel normal again.  
 
Best Moment This Week: Finally starting to get things organised and seeing light at the end of the tunnel with all the decorating going on and getting the house back into some kind of calm order!  

Looking Forward To: Seeing the baby again, I’ve got another growth scan lined up so waiting to see what they say and hopefully everyone will be happy that even though I’m big, baby is going to be fine. 

 

I’m finally on my iron tablets so will be taking those over the next 4 weeks to see if that makes a difference, I’ll have a blood test in 4 weeks time. Fingers crossed it’s all fine and I won’t need to keep taking them.   
 
I hope you all have a fab weekend and can’t wait to hear what your all up to this week.
 

 

 

Lots of Love

Pregnancy | 28 Week Bumpdate

 

Hello Third Trimester!! I’m finally on the home stretch and into the last 3 months of my pregnancy. 



I’m also really pleased that you’re enjoying my little Bumpdates and following my journey and I’ve really enjoyed recording it this way. So what’s been going on this week?? Let’s jump right into it!

 

How far along?? 28 Weeks. 

 

Maternity Clothes?? Still in need of some good maternity jeans and a good maternity winter coat and maybe some leggings since my bump keeps growing!!
 

 

Sleep: I’m so tired, I’ve not been sleeping well at all for the past 2 weeks, I think I’m getting at most around 3 hours as I’m just so uncomfortable. 
 
Miss Anything?? Just the same old sleep.
 
Movement: Feeling him all the more now which is great and you can see my belly moving now when he does and the munchkin loves it.   
 
Gender: Most definitely a boy.
 
Cravings: No cravings at all!!
 
Labour Signs: Nope!!
 
Symptoms: Lots of lower back pain and pain around my pelvis which is from the growing, I think. I’m feeling very heavy and achy too so not quite sure if it’s because baby sits so low or because my bump may need a little extra support. 
 
Belly Button In or Out?? It’s completely popped out now. 
 
Mood: Just really tired and still trying to carry on and be positive about the whole experience, I still have work and housework to do so I’m just trucking on.  
 
Best Moment This Week: Seeing his face on the 3D scan and having the munchkin experience it too.  

Looking Forward To: Getting the bedroom finished. We’re a little behind due to having a few things crop up like the OH’s car breaking down and us now trying to find a new one. 


I also had my 28 week check at the midwife this week and we got booked into the hospital for a growth scan as he is measuring big. The hospital are happy baby is growing fine, my fluid is normal and thankfully my placenta is not in the way of my cervix. I’ve got a follow up in 3 weeks time just to make sure they’re happy with the results.  

 
I hope you all have a fab weekend and can’t wait to hear what your all up to this week.
 

 

Lots of Love
