I have just finished the 34th week of my pregnancy and it has just dawned on me that in just 1 months time I could be holding our precious little surprise bundle of joy .
There has been no visits to see the midwife or hospital visits this week and in fact I have been feeling rather great considering I am struggling to get comfortable at sleep time as well as having that interesting Saturday last week.
How am I feeling?
Lets just say , sex is not at the top of the agenda for me anymore after I spent the rest of the weekend feeling as if baby was going to come early. My sex drive has been at its lowest through out this pregnancy anyway but with hubby feeling neglected lately and me not wanting to go over as I have done with previous pregnancy's I have been advised that some gentle sexy time will help things along naturally and so I gave it a try and well , not going there again, I was in constant pain with tightenings and felt like our baby had dropped really low.
My body is feeling pregnant , I feel pregnant and I am now racing towards the finish line with no control over what my body does . I hate not being in control, I really do. Not knowing when things are going to take a turn and not being able to decide when I feel ready to do what I know is going to have to be done .
I still fear child birth , I am not going to lie .
I feel my home is in need of a good sorting out, decorating has started and I know this feeling happened just before the birth of my 1st child , I was half way through decorating my sitting room and the labour started , within 24 hours , my daughter had been born and so decorating is one of my ''Nesting'' rituals before baby comes I am sure of that.
Lightening pains in my back and lower tummy have started happening to the point I am stunned and jerking with them now and more often I am feeling uncomfortable in any position I lay, sit or stand.
I have packed my bag after the weekend pains panicked me a little , I now feel very nervous but kind of ready to do this now and so it seemed the right time to get everything finally finalised.
How Is Baby?
I know I said this last time and baby was breech but I am hoping he has turned around now as I feel like he is laying so low down .
My tummy feels very solid , I honestly think there is more baby than amniotic fluids now and every movement he makes , I feel and see .
Apparently our baby is now the size of a pineapple and I am in no way going to argue with their predictions with all of the big round hardness I feel in front of me.
He feels heavier for sure so I know he is growing although I still eel he is going to be a small baby like our other son so no more than 6lb I reckon.
I get my 35 weeks midwife visit next week so I will be able to let you know how we are doing size and engagement wise so please keep an eye out for that . I think I may cry if she tells me I am not engaged or he is breech still.
I know you all say that he has plenty of time yet to still turn but everything is still going so very fast for me I feel time is running out fast.
Fingers crossed ,I will be back soon with an update!
