Due Date: June 28th, 2017
Mood: My mood still seems to be a little all over the place, I know the closer it gets to my due date the more anxious I will be, but I wasn't prepared for it to be quite this hard. I have so much guilt surrounding the weight loss and the fact that babygirl isn't growing 'as she should be'. I'm also finding it really difficult to sleep, as soon as I close my eyes I'm filled with anxiety and dread and my mind starts thinking over a billion and one different things that are not even important. I have another appointment with the midwife coming up, and then another scan and consultant appointment to check on little ladies growth. Hoping that they both go fine, and I end up having a natural labour.
Symptoms: I'm so tired this week, but I know that is down to not sleeping at night time. I'm still having lots of braxton hicks, and sometimes it gets very painful, but its eased off for the time being. I know if it gets really uncomfortable I have to go into the hospital, so I'm just trying to listen to my body, and what I have been told by the consultants - take it easy, and rest as much as I can to prevent it escalating.
Sleep: Sleep is terrible. I'm not even sure what sleep is anymore. I think I roughly get about 3-4 hours a night now which isn't a great deal - especially when your growing a baby.
Movement: Baby girl is still very active, she does most of her wiggling and kicking at night time - unless her sister is harassing my bump. Although I absolutely hate being pregnant - I'm just not a good pregnant person don't judge me, I will miss the little kicks as I know this is our last baby.
Food Cravings: Still Ice pops!
Gender: It's a GIRL!
Highlight of the week: This week we headed to mothercare to have a look at some strollers, we still haven't decided on what one we would like, and have a few in mind. Emily of course wanted to give the stroller a push around and test it out - she was literally in her element. She put her little brown bunny into the stroller, and off she went. Her favourite seemed to be the same as her Daddy's which was cute. I also managed to get some sheets for baby girls crib - we are pretty much all set now. I just need to get my bum in gear and sort out our hospital bag - eeek!
Looking forward to: Meeting our baby girl and seeing the girls together. Emily is so excited, she has literally been asking everyday if it's time for baby sissy to come yet.
Baby Development: Week 32: All of your baby's five senses are working and she can now turn her head from side to side.
