38 weeks. Two weeks till my due date. Oh my…I hope this baby comes on time (or early) and not late. Just like I said in my last update…I am so done with being pregnant now. We literally found out about baby on day one (I had a negative test one day, then the next day it was positive), so we have known about him for the full 9 months and May feels like it was forever ago!
This week baby is the size of a watermelon…still!
HOW I’M FEELING
Quite a bit better than my last update. Last time I was very grumpy. Even though my mood is still quite low, I’ve been getting out and about a lot more these last two weeks and fresh air and walking has done me the world of good.
Baby keeps going from being engaged…which means I have to walk with crutches because he just LOVES lying across my sciatic nerve, to coming out of the engaged position and then I get severe acid reflux. I know it sounds odd, but I’d much rather have a painful leg and not be able to walk than to have acid reflux. It’s so awful and it sometimes lasts all day long.
I have gained EVEN MORE weight this past fortnight. I mentioned last time that I had suddenly ballooned and it was making me feel really low about myself. Somehow I seem to have gotten even bigger. But not just around my belly, also around my face (I swear I have triple chins), around my bum, my legs and my arms…
I hate it so much. I’m also starting to worry about how my body is going to look after baby too. I just seem to have excess chunk everywhere and I have a feeling its not going to go as quickly as it did five years ago when I had Evie and I was a lot younger.
But…we’ll just have to wait and see what happens. I know my last couple of updates have been quite moany. Can you tell I’m fed up with being pregnant now? Hopefully I won’t even be doing a 40 week update and baby might be here before then. My fingers are well and truly crossed.
