39 week bump shot | Relaxing with bump
How far along?
I was 39 weeks this week.
Size of baby?
Bump measured 40 weeks at 39+5. Midwife says he's definitely a 'good size baby' ie. he's bloody massive! ;)
Any news this week?
Well he's still not here! As this post goes live, I'll be 40+1, so a day over my due date. I'm starting to really struggle carrying the weight around now, I get painful stitch on both sides from only walking. And my SPD is that bad I feel like my bits are splitting in half when I stand up. Sorry for the TMI lol. I've continued to get painful period type pains throughout the week but they never seem to go anywhere. Today is my due date, I woke up with a few twinges and back ache but it comes and goes. I have a feeling he won't be coming anytime soon. My midwife says he's still just at the brim, just 1/5 engaged so he's hanging back still. Lazy thing! I think he'll be the size of a toddler by the time he decides to arrive!! I'm bouncing on my ball like a crazy woman!! Midwife won't book me in for a sweep till 41 weeks though which Im pretty gutted about!!
Still in my Maternity Leggings (£14.99/New Look) and Maternity Tops (£12.99/Beebies Baby Store). Even these are getting too small for me now!! I can't actually wait to be able to wear something else!! :)
I've ran out of all pregnancy specific products this week, so just using my usual products now.
Strong period type pains / twinges, pressure and lower back pain that are really quite painful but never seem to go anywhere. But I guess its the start of everything getting ready.
I'm really quite hormonal and emotional too, I know thats totally normal at this point, but I do worry my depression may creep back.
Struggling to sleep some nights, was up at 4am the other day watching back to back eps of Once Upon A Time! :)
Im desperate to be able to lie on my tummy!!! I'm just missing feeling normal, being able to walk around my own house without being in lots of pain!
I can still feel him. :)
I bought some post pregnancy spanx and support vests this week. This body aint gonna be pretty for a while!! :\
Best moment this week?
Worst moment this week?
Where do I start?!
Anything making you queasy or sick?
Belly Button in or out?
Very hormonal and emotional. :(
Looking forward to?
Him making his arrival!
