33 Weeks Pregnant [Baby Number Two]


Due Date: June 28th, 2017

Mood: My mood has been really up and down, I feel like I always say that but its honestly the truth. I don't know if that is the anxiety or the fact that I am just emotional, or maybe both. I have got a appointment with the mental health team soon, just as a precortion and to make a plan encase I'm unlucky enough to get post natal depression again. I do think that there is a strong chance I will get it again, because I had it with Emily and of course these things never really go away you just get better at dealing with it. 

Symptoms: Where to start, how do you even write this part of your pregnancy update without it ending up as a complaint? The sickness is still ruling my life, you can read my latest post on it here (sorry it is a little ranty). I also can't lay down, whenever I do I feel like I can't breathe, although I have a small bump, my boobs seemed to have gone up two cup sizes which doesn't seem like a lot but it is when you were already a E cup. I also feel really tired all the time, and achy. I'm still seeing the midwife and consultant often, to keep a eye on baby girl's growth. So far she is seems to be putting on a little bit of weight, not as much as we would like but it is better than nothing.

I also saw the midwife this week, she said baby girl is head down. I keep having lots of contractions (which are a lot more intense than the braxton hicks). They literally stop me in my tracks. I've been told to take it easy - which isn't the easiest task when you have a hyperactive toddler running around constantly. The consultant is taking it appointment by appointment, and we are just waiting to see what happens. Pre-term labour succcckkss.


Sleep: Wait, what is sleep? I haven't been able to get a good nights sleep for ages. Although Emily is now sleeping lots better, she finally adjusted to her new bedroom and new bed. I still can't sleep, I find myself anxious the most at nighttime, meaning it is so hard to actually get to sleep. Sam has been a superstar though, whenever he isn't at work he trys to let me sleep it - the problem is most of the time I end up waking up before him anyway.

Movement: Baby girl is still very active, which I'm so thankful for. I find it reassuring to feel those little wiggles, and although I hate being pregnant, that is the one thing I really am going to miss. 

Food Cravings: Ice pops still.

Gender: It's a GIRL!

Highlight of the week: Finding out a couple of my friends are pregnant! It's so exciting knowing that a few people who are close to me are experiencing the newborn days too! Although I may be further along than them, eventually baby girl will have a few little friends.

Looking forward to: I think this is another thing I say pretty much every week, but I can't wait for her to just be here now and the pregnancy to be over with. Emily is super excited to meet her little sister and asks daily if it is time  yet. 

Baby Development: Week 33: Because of lack of room, your baby's movements feel more like rolls then kicks now.
