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?
