Ahhhhh 5 weeks to go and I finish work today!! The nursery is so close to finishing, we just need to put a couple of shelves and pictures up. I love it. I will post pics as soon as it’s finished.
Weight Gain: 30lbs, shit! Hopefully a max of 1lb a week gain till due date and the total will be 2.5 stone. Which I guess isn’t too bad, is it? As long as it comes off who cares!
Bump is now 43.5 inches. I am having to take the measurement at a different place as the widest point is much lower now. Hopefully that means Baby C is in the right position.
Symptoms: Not been too bad this week, I’ve not been really tired either. I am however really looking forward to having my normal size feet and calves back. I’ve heard they get worse before they get better though- Great!!!
Stretch marks: No changes here -Yet!
Movement: Still moving lots, it’s also the first time I have felt Baby C have hiccups, first it was cute, now it’s a little annoying, especially at night time, but I still smile every time I feel him. I have no idea of his position as I get hard bumps and lumps all over. His hiccups are low down though so hopefully that’s a sign.
Belly button: A soft outie, but it can now be seen through my tops.
Cravings: Nothing, I’ve not even been hungry.
Wedding ring: Miraculously On!
Labour Symptoms: Braxton Hicks.. I was suffering from period pain type cramps, every 5 mins for about 45 mins, they weren’t really painful!
Best moments: My lovely amazing Baby Shower. I will do a separate post on this to tell you all about it! We have also ticked off everything on our Baby List… I am sure a lot more things will crop up but we have everything we think we need.
Worst moment: Waking up at 5am and wondering how we are going to look after a baby!!! What do I dress him in, will he be too hot, too cold, how do I know what to do with him!!! Arghhh. Has anyone else suffered pre-baby nerves? I woke up the next morning and asked Mr.C if he was nervous, apparently he isn’t, My reply ” yeah me either”
Arghhh, little update. I cracked my wisdom tooth, I have no idea how, it doesn’t hurt in the slightest, but I have been left with a little snaggle tooth right at the back, it’s pretty sharp, so my first day out of the office will be spent at the dentist, having the rest removed I’m sure. I think things like that are quite common in pregnancy, I’m just glad it’s the back tooth that won’t be seen!
Looking forward to: Maternity Leave, It officially starts on the 2nd September however I finish today on holiday!
Until next week
