Pregnancy Diary 34-36 Weeks

Argh I'm 36 weeks pregnant, that's just four weeks or 28 days to go more or less. Where has my pregnancy gone? Everyone says that the final month drags and I kinda hope it does because I feel like my pregnancy is whizzing away in front of my eyes. I'll blink and he'll be two at this rate. 

The last few weeks have been pretty full on, I've had lunch dates with friends, been for afternoon tea, blogged my heart away, reviewed a new restaurant and organised the final Southampton Bloggers event before my sister takes over. I also had my hair chopped off which felt so good as my already very thick hair was feeling even thicker thanks to all those pregnancy hormones flying around. I'll be welcoming postpartum hair loss, you watch. 

I've more or less been feeling okay. The heartburn comes and goes but it's not bad at all, my lower back aches so baths are my best friend and I've been noticing Braxton Hicks more but I really don't have much to complain about. I'm still sleeping 8+ hours a night which is the best feeling so I think I've been quite lucky although I cannot wait to be able to wear my engagement ring again, my hands and feet are so swollen. I've started on the raspberry leaf tea now too which I absolutely love! 

We are all sorted in the house now, with just a thermometer left to get and the pushchair left to build. We've just bought our baby monitor and have gone for the Babble Band as it's perfect for the size of our home. It still feels so surreal to have all his baby bits around us and I'm half tempted to get the Sleepyhead out for myself and have a snooze. 

Since my mini breakdown over lack of antenatal care, My 36 week midwife appointment was a lot better. I'm back with my original midwife and looks like she's staying with me the next few weeks too! Baby is head down and engaged which means my pelvis feels very full and I need to ease myself up so as not to get a sharp jolt. Birth plan is written now and so far everything I want is a possibility as long as baby plays ball and there are no complications.

Whatever happens, happens, I just can't wait to have him in my arms now. I'm going to be spending the next few weeks relaxing and making the most of my free time, that is unless he makes an early appearance but fingers crossed he stays cooking a little longer. Catch you next time!
