27 Weeks Pregnant
27 weeks pregnant – 13 left – oh wow it’s flying by now! The last few weeks seem to have gone much quicker anyway. It’s crazy to think that in 12 week’s time I’ll be finishing work.
I was going to work right up until the end but due to the discomfort of SJD, I’ve decided to finish a week earlier. It would have been nice to finish before then but I’d rather keep the paid mat leave until after Mini arrives. :)
I’m getting a bit nervous now and it’s really dawning on me that an actual baby will be here soon. I know that’s silly but it’s just becoming much more real every week closer to my due date.
I wish more than anything that I knew when Mini was going to arrive – I’m such a planner and I find it very difficult to not know. But that’s pregnancy! Miss M was 3 weeks and a day early so I suppose there’s a chance that Mini might do the same. However when I had my 12 week scan this time round they did move my date a week earlier so perhaps it’s more accurate this time.
Knowing my luck, I’ll be 2 weeks’ late!
We’re having a lot of fun making the most of our ‘family of 3’ time and took Miss M for our first time at soft play last weekend – she had so so much fun and we’ll definitely go again.
I’m still leaning towards trying for a waterbirth at home and I’ve started looking into hiring a birthing pool – if you have any suggestions on a pool to hire or where from, please do comment below.
I have my 28 week app on Feb 3rd and I will chat to the midwive then about what support I would get for a homebirth and will make my decision then.
The SJD (sacroiliac joint dysfunction) pain isn’t great this week but is much better than last week, thankfully. I’ve been doing the exercises the physio gave me although I know they will take around 6 weeks to have much benefit but I’m sure the stretching is helping already.
I feel so huge! I’m carrying sooo high up again like last pregnancy. I did pick up some new maternity clothes because my usual clothes are now proving a bit too small so I’ll take some pics in the next week or so and show you what I’ve got.
Hope all my bump buddies are feeling well and everyone is having a lovely week with you bumps and babies. :)
