Pregnancy | 35 weeks

35 week bump shot  |  Daddy building the cot

How far along? 
35 weeks.

Size of baby?

My bump was still measuring 9 3/4 [almost 10 but not quite] pieces of toilet roll this week! ;), although my bump feels as though it's grown a lot this week. 

Any news this week?
This week I think I've reached the point where I'm feeling rather fed up, tired and huge. I feel constantly tired and can't do much or go far. I've just reached 36 weeks and feel like I'm ready now. We have everything now. Our Mamas & Papas delivery arrived, so we have the cot, changing table and everything up and ready for him now. Although I'm starting to feel really anxious and scared about the labour and birth now it's almost time. 
As with my last pregnancy, I've started to put lots of weight on everywhere else on my body over these past few weeks. Why do I seem to get so fat during the last few weeks?? I have a LOT of work to do afterwards!! 
These hot, humid nights have been a struggle. I've been struggling to breathe, get comfy, and having to wrap my hot feet in cold wet towels to cool them down. Not to put a downer on things though. I still feel very grateful that after everything we went through to get here, we're finally getting close to meeting our miracle baby!! :) It's getting pretty exciting now!!

So I'm down to 2 pairs of New Look Maternity Leggings (£14.99 x2) and 3 maternity vests/tops from Beebies Baby Store. Theres no point in me buying anything else with only a few weeks left. I'm massively struggling in this heat though! It's so frustrating that I can't just pop on a pretty summer dress when it gets too hot.

I've continued to moisturise daily with both Phytorelax Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream all over [as far as I'm aware you can only get this in the US, unless imported into stores such as TK Maxx which is where I picked it up from; £4.99] and moisturising my bump with Palmer's Cocoa Butter Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks (£2.10). I'm still reaching for my Anatomicals Spray Misty For Me Facial Spritz (£3.12) to cool down my feet as they get so hot!! 

Extreme tiredness. Generally feeling huge and uncomfortable. 

It's been hard to sleep in this weather, I struggle to breathe, I'm feeling way too hot and sweaty! :(

Missing anything? 
Being slim ;) And just feeling active and having energy.

Big movements now but he's quickly running out of room!

Any purchases?:
No purchases this week.

Best moment this week:
Watching Daddy put the baby's furniture up! :)

Worst moment this week: 
Feeling tired and fed up. :(

Food cravings:
Nothing too much this week.

Anything making you queasy or sick:


Belly Button in or out? 

It's def more of an outy now!! 


Extremely tired and fed up.

Looking forward to:

Our antenatal class this weekend.

Can't believe I'm now 36 weeks, 4 weeks to go!!
