So my due date has been and gone yet I still have a baby in my belly! I haven’t done many updates on my blog but now I’m finally at my due date, I wanted to post how I’d got on since my last update at week 23. It seems such a long time since I found out I was pregnant but then again I suppose 9 months really is a long time! I’ve definitely found pregnancy a lot easier since I finished work which meant I didn’t have to commute to Manchester every day. The first trimester and a half were definitely the worst of it with the sickness and tiredness but I still haven’t loved being pregnant since either. I feel really selfish saying that because I feel so lucky to be pregnant and to be welcoming a child into our lives but it doesn’t mean I’m gonna lie! Of course, pregnancy wouldn’t put me off having another child as I know the positives will 100% outweigh how rubbish I’ve felt.
How Far Gone: 40 Weeks + 1! Yesterday was my due date.
How does the Bump Look: Very round, sticking outwards and pretty big now!
Other Body Changes: Touch Wood I’ve had no stretch marks yet! My boobs are definitely lower than before though – glam. I think I’ve put around 2 and a half stone on so far which is actually a lot less than I thought it would be.
Sleep: Usually wake for a few hours in the night but then sleep in till 10. Oops!
Symptoms: Acid reflux and sickness! My groins also cease up if I’ve sat for too long and I struggle to get out of bed/off the couch. I really have had sickness throughout most of my pregnancy and the last few weeks it’s been back to its worse. Christmas Day morning was probably the worst but I think a lot of it is because of the acid.
Gender: Team yellow but I’ve always said Boy.
Movement: Non stop especially when lay on my left side in bed or just before tea time.
Wedding Rings: On (just)
Excited for: To meet my baby and find out if it’s a girl or boy!
At around week 30, I thought Baby would be early but as soon as I got to week 37 I knew I’d still be pregnant at week 40. Of course, I only want them to come once they’re ready but now I’ve hit my due date, I’m desperate to meet them! Every twinge or cramp, I think it won’t be long now but Baby still isn’t ready to come out and meet their Mummy and Daddy. Hopefully it won’t be much longer now and I’ll post on my Twitter/Instagram once they’ve arrived! This was a pretty quick update but it’s something I’ll want to look back on in a few years time. I’m hoping my next post on here will be introducing Baby Heapy as I have a midwife appointment on Monday and I’m hoping she’ll get Baby moving!
Is your money on pink or blue?!
Ta Ta for now,
