So sorry I have missed week 39 , I feel rather disappointed in myself for letting you down on the week update but I suppose it is not bad really considering it is only one .
I just feel it has all got so much and I feel the past few weeks have been very tiring and also aggravating.
Now I have reached this very exciting time in my pregnancy at 40 weeks I am even more nervous that it could happen at any time but so far no signs to say it will.
I actually never thought I would reach full term so am in shock .
How are we doing?
Well to be fare I actually feel really good.
It seems that my husband decided last minute to put that new bathroom in so I have been spending the week shopping for tiles and other bits and pieces and trying to walk around as much as possible.
I know it may seem a terrible time for me to be dealing with all of the mess but to be honest it is keeping my mind of the fact that the week is here and I still have not had little man .
I keep saying to myself that once the bathroom is finished only then will he arrive, he is waiting for that lovely bath to be home for his own arrival to enjoy it.
I feel disappointed that my body is not yet doing what I thought it would or should have done already but still thinking to myself that although he is not here still , at least I know he will be in no later than another weeks time max.
Except for the disappointment of me not having him yet , I still feel surprisingly ok although a little tired but nothing major.
I am not settling to sleep till very late worrying that something will happen in mid sleep but once I doze off I am gone for the night and enjoying the good nights sleep while I can.
I feel very hungry this week and find myself dipping in and out of the kitchen grabbing things like cheese and slices of ham , even cold leftover cabbage from the night before saved for a quick heat up for my dinner.
I feel my appetite is returning slowly and I welcome it .
Being the week for expecting to have our son here , my husband took lots of time of to help with school runs knowing that the walk is very uncomfortable for me so lucky for me I was able to get in the family vehicle most days but on others it is really painful as I know he has moved further down .
We have been trying plenty of sex and curry's and walking etc but it seems he is too comfy for him to want to come and meet us yet so as I reach my 41st week now I am becoming impatient but happy knowing I made it full term and he is still kicking and heart beating strong in there.
Our boy is wriggling about, not so much as I feel he has run out of space to give those oh so powerful thumps as he did before but he is still moving around enough for me to know he is ok in there.
When we went to see the midwife last week , she informed us that baby was still 3/5ths and not budged but knowing I had all my others at that stage did not phase me , I was just happy he was still engaged.
His heartbeat was strong and he gave the midwife a little wriggle .
We booked a day for her to come and give me a membrane sweep which is on week 41 on Thursday so fingers crossed he wont have us waiting that long but if so least things will be making a move and organised.
So I have gone one full week over my due date, its a little disheartening but while I can , I am enjoying my husband treating me to some tasty curry's (although I have given up now with fear I may poop myself before giving birth lol) , those comfy sleeps and relaxing while kids are in school . I even picked up a book this week which I have not done in ages .
Hopefully I will not see you with another disappointing post next week and instead be back to share with you the wonderful birthing experience or not so if things do not go to plan as they aren't .
Eyes peeled , I am sure I will be back soon.
