Baby Update at 39 Weeks

I am now 39 weeks and 6 days – the due date is tomorrow! Having said that, no new developments towards her arrival. I am just big, uncomfortable, aching, tired and swollen. My feet look like trotters. I need to put them up to help with the swelling, but also go for walks to help…

Baby Update at 38 Weeks

I am so uncomfortable!! My pelvic joints are very sore and the baby is stretching herself a lot which hurts me. In addtion to that (and losing our puppy Fez just today), I’ve developed something new over the last couple of weeks – prurigo of pregnancy. It’s a whole lot of tiny itchy pimples on…

Baby Update at 36 Weeks

This 36th week has been horrendously uncomfortable. During the day, baby sometimes stretches into certain areas that makes walking almost painful, and sitting down very uncomfortable. My pelvic joints really ache after sitting or lying down too. In bed, I’ve had nights where baby will just not stop moving, and her legs keep stretching up…

So uncomfortable. Bladder being pounded by active baby. Some new aches around the pelvic region. Me sleepy. So sleepy. Taking the…

Baby Update at 34 Weeks

I’m officially on parental leave now, for a year! Yay-ah! I got a Baby Factory voucher from the staff at work which we used towards a pretty bassinette. We weren’t sure if we needed one, but thought it would be handy especially as the family will be staying for three weeks around Christmas and we…

Baby Update at 33 Weeks

Sunday night I had another weird dream. The baby was full-sized, and you could see her whole shape as she stretched out from my belly. You could see the shapes of her arms, legs, torso and there was even a cute face. The whole thing was freaking me out though. She kept squirming and twisting…

Baby Update at 32 Weeks

At the end of 32 weeks I am fat and fed up. Sitting is uncomfortable. Standing is uncomfortable. Walking is uncomfortable. Sleeping is uncomfortable. Eating is uncomfortable. The baby is squirming a lot and it’s now not so pleasant. I’m sure I can feel her fingers scraping at my insides. Sometimes I feel winded because…

Baby Update at 31 Weeks

Do you know the Gonads and Strife song? The lyrics don’t matter so much, but the title of that song pretty much sums up what pregnancy is all about right now. At my last visit to the midwife, I was told that I don’t have swollen feet because she can still see my ankles. Welllll……

Baby Update at 30 Weeks

“Stop playing with my perineum”… I bet LadyHawke never thought her My Delirium song would be twisted like that, but if you know me at all I make up lyrics and they are often crass. At least this one’s relevant because if the baby doesn’t fit through they will cut your perineum! OUCH! And first…
