Pregnancy | 39 weeks

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! :) 

Missing anything? 
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. :)

Any purchases?
I bought some post pregnancy spanx and support vests this week. This body aint gonna be pretty for a while!! :\

Best moment this week?
Erm.. :\

Worst moment this week? 
Where do I start?!

Food cravings?
No food cravings.

Anything making you queasy or sick?


Belly Button in or out? 



Very hormonal and emotional. :(

Looking forward to?

Him making his arrival!

Prices all correct at time of posting

Can't believe I'm now 40 weeks - consider this your eviction notice little man!!!

  13. Lianne~ thinking of you and hoping you're feeling better. Try to relax and put your feet up, you'll meet him soon enough. If it's any consequence: I started feeling pains much like yours one day before I delivered my little girl. So, though these pains may be inconvenient, and yes..painful. It's a tell-tale sign. Hang in there!
