34 Week Pregnancy Update

Hi beauties. I'm back again to check in with a long overdue pregnancy update! My last update was at 25 weeks, and I'm now at 34+5 and feeling like an absolute whale! I can't believe how quickly this pregnancy has gone, and I'm starting to really panic fret about the fact that this baby could potentially come within the next few weeks and I've still got so much to sort out.

How I've Been Feeling
Warning: moaner alert! Well last time I was saying how wonderful I'd been feeling (the wonders of the 2nd trimester), but now I'm really starting to feel big and pregnant. I've been getting a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions, which I remember getting a lot last time. They don't really hurt, but my whole bump goes rock solid and it feels really uncomfortable for about 30 seconds or so. Also, I ache everywhere, I can't for the life of me get comfortable in any position and my mind is in constant overdrive about everything I need/want to do before the baby comes. Wanna see my hefty list? Well we've gotta... 
  • Sort George's new bedroom out. (it's just been painted etc - thanks Hubby).
  • Get his new wardrobes & drawers built (another task for Martin) & organise his clothes into there. 
  • Move George into his new room and into his big boy's bed (God help us, thats a major task in itself).
  • Get all of his newborn baby clothes out, sort through the unisex (white and neutral) baby grows, wash them and organise them.
  • Sort out the nursery ready for the new bambino.
  • Buy maternity/hospital stuff.
  • Pack hospital bag
Not much at all! ARGHHH

Cravings/food aversions? 
None really.

I swear I must have doubled in size at the weekend. I could even feel myself stretching on Sunday, ouchie! I've got a few more stretchmarks this week that Hubby kindly pointed out! Not happy, but what can you do? I'll just have to work on reducing their appearance once my body is back to normal. This baby is growing at the speed of light and my body is trying hard to keep up. I feel like Bella Swan!!

I had my 34 week appointment yesterday and she said I was measuring perfectly for 34 weeks which is great news. She said it was a nice healthy heartbeat, and the baby's head is in the down position but still free, which means it hasn't descended down into the pelvis yet. Phew! 

According to Baby Centre, my baby now weighs more then 2.2kg and is approximately 45cm from top to toe! Awwww. I still find it baffling how a human can carry a fully grown baby. Mother Nature at her absolute finest!

Next Appointment
In 2 weeks time when I'll be 36+5

Much love. We'll be back for a final update before baby is born (hopefully) x
