34 Weeks Pregnant – My Pregnancy Week-by-Week

34 Weeks Pregnant

Welcome to my 34 weeks pregnant update!  Ooh 6 weeks to go – or maybe less, or maybe more – who knows! That’s been the theme of the last week for me – the unknown.

I think this stage is probably similar to nesting for most people but I’m having some kind of adverse reaction to it.

Instead of just getting organised – which I am a little bit – I’m spending a lot of time thinking about everything that is out of my control.  I’ve written my second baby essentials list here.

Like when the baby will come, what it will be, whether it will be at home, the birth centre or a hospital, what labour will be like, how long labour will be, how long I’ll push for, will I be hypnobirthing again, will Mr M make it in time from work, what will recovery be like, what on EARTH are we going to call it?

And these are just a FEW of the questions, thoughts and pregnancy fears that are on constant rotation in my head.  At all times of the day and night.  Goodbye sleep.

In other news, I did get my nails done and I managed to shave my legs, I think probably for the last time myself due to the awkwardness of bending down!  So if I go into labour in the next few days, I look partially presentable at least.

My bump feels like it’s tripled in size in the past few days – as do the ladies.  I really wish I had blogged my last pregnancy so I could compare when these things happened.

The pelvic pain has increased with the bump growth unfortunately and turning over in bed is almost impossible.  My physio did give me a great tip to get satin sheets and PJs – easiler to slide around!  Although I haven’t actually done this myself, I wanted to pass it on.

I’ve also had a cold/sinusitis for the past 2 weeks that will not go away – so I’ve been feeling just a little sorry for myself.

Anyway, that is just about enough complaining for one post I think!

Oooh Mini is on the way!  It’s very exciting – I can’t quite believe that an actual other baby is going to be sharing our house and lives soon!

What will it be?  I’m still 99% sure it will be another baby girl and we have a couple of possible names now.  On the 1% chance it is a boy, we are well and truly stuffed as we cannot agree on any boy names at all.  None.  Has anyone else had this dilemma?  How long is too long to have a nameless baby??

I’ve bought the car seat and nursing chair – hurray.  We got the Kiddicare Cloud Nine Deluxe Glider Chair and Stool (similar here).  The chair arrived on Tuesday.  I asked Mr M to take it upstairs and put it together on Tuesday.  The chair is still sat in pieces downstairs.  It’s now Friday.  MR M – ARE YOU READING THIS?  Ooh I can’t wait to sit and recline on my lovely new nursing chair!

So all in all, I’m in a good place and looking forward to the arrival of my new baby.

How are my bump buddies doing?

    I remember that fear of the unknown. Going to bed every night and wondering if tomorrow was the day I would go into labour. Sorry to hear that you’ve had a cold and sinusitis and that your pelvic pain has got worse. It is horrible when you can’t take anything to make you feel better. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

    Fabulous update and so exciting that you are edging ever closer to meeting your baby! I didn’t blog much during my pregnancy…I did actually write a couple of posts on a different blog but when Dad died I found it too hard to write so I never really continued. To think the content I could have had though if I’d been a proper blogger like I am now! I also never had a nursing chair! I dreamed of one but our flat was far too small so wasn’t allowed! Maybe next time. Come on Mr M…build it for your lady :) Thanks so much for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

    • / 9:02 pm

      Thanks so much! He finally built the chair!! :)

    Ha ha I remember nagging hubster about putting things together. Beb is 7weeks old this week and I’m still waiting for most of them to be done grrrrr. So exciting #MaternityMondays

    • / 9:01 pm

      Ha ha mine FINALLY put the chair up! :)

    You are really so close now! How exciting is that. I remember that unknown kind of feeling around this time. It was still potentially undecided whether I would be having a csection or whether Amelia would co-operate and turn (she didn’t) so my plan was so up in the air! Hope the chair has finally been assembled!!! Thankyou so much for linking up #MummyMonday xx

    • / 9:00 pm

      Soo close! I’m such a control freak, I hate not knowing! :)

  11. / 8:40 am

    How exciting your a whole 15 weeks ahead of me, not long left!! Get that hubby to get all the diy projects done before it’s too late.
    I had a head cold cold a couple weeks ago, thankfully no sinus infections yet, hope your feeling better now, they take the life outta of you. I’m dreading summer when my hay fever kicks in x

    • / 8:58 pm

      Thank so much – hope you’re feeling well too! :)

    I can relate when it comes to picking boys names. They are so much harder than girls! We have been told we are having a girl but in the off chance its a boy I still want to be prepared!

    • / 6:48 pm

      It’s always best to be prepared isn’t it! Boys names are so hard to choose – well, so are girls argh :)

    You are almost there! I’ve had a runny nose through my whole last pregnancy. Hope you are feeling better. You have an excellent excuse to pamper yourself a bit. Hope you have something nice planned for the weekend. #weekendbloghop

    • / 6:48 pm

      Thanks Mariet! This cold does not want to leave me – I’m stuck with it! :)

    How exciting, you’re getting so close now! I completely understand the feeling out of control; it turns out I might be back at my original due date so have three weeks difference in when I could expect she could come between 6-12 weeks essentially which is driving me insane with preparation desires!

    • / 6:47 pm

      Oh wow that’s a big difference – I can imagine how you feel! Argh I wish the due date actually meant something :)
