Pregnancy Update Week 36…
After a crazy few weeks of hospitals & appointments, we seem to have been given the ‘all clear’ & have had a lovely quiet week! It’s given me time to actually sit down & try & enjoy the end of this pregnancy as this is most certainly the last time I will be experiencing it!
I have been exceedingly tired this week and haven’t really moved out of bed. I think it’s the stress of the last few weeks catching up with me. Fortunately I’ve had lots of help with Sophie so I can do this – not sure how I would have coped otherwise! We have been starting to get the house sorted & now have all of baby’s things set up in our bedroom ready for his arrival. There is still tons to do – including decorating his nursery! – but we are getting there slowly.
How far along? 36 + 6
Total weight gain / loss? +18 lb
Maternity clothes? Pyjamas…
Sleep? I spoke WAY too soon about being able to turn over & get out of bed … it is SO SO hard now & it hurts like hell!
Best moment this week? Being given a temporary ‘all clear’ from hospital – no need to see my consultant now until week 40!
Symptoms? Back ache, exhaustion & lots of pelvic pain
Food cravings? Salad (I think it’s to make up for all those months of chocolate cravings!)
Food aversions? None, but have found it hard to eat during nausea phases.
Stretch marks? No new ones, but the old ones are super red at the tops 🙁
What I miss? Being able to get out of bed without feeling like my insides are ripping open…
What I’m looking forward to? Finally not having to go to the toilet 3 times a night…
Bump? Has got himself into a bit of a new routine… very quiet all day then has a mad dance party from around 8pm – 10pm!
