How far along: 37 weeks
Symptoms: I’m getting rather sore and uncomfortable now. Getting up and down is a little bit slower, and getting out of bed in the morning takes longer for sure! It feels like baby has gone a little bit more sideways rather than being head down with it’s feet up in my ribs. I’m getting some serious kicks out of my side and it’s bizarre. It moves the skin down the side of my ribs – bleh. I’ve started getting some period like cramps, which are a bit unnerving, and a few times this week I’ve had Braxton Hicks that have taken my breath away a little bit.
Food Cravings: Need to get my hands on some Lebanese food and chicken pakoras, whilst I’m home.
Movement: Getting most movement from baby in the evenings and night time now. Baby doesn’t seem to be content with kicking upwards these days so is also kicking out to the side. Ouch.
Sleep: Sleep is ok – pretty uncomfortable but ok. Can’t really sleep without the pregnancy pillow these days.
Stretch Marks: Still nope.
Miss Anything: I’d really like a night out and some cocktails please!
Best Moment: Having a maternity photo shoot with the wonderful Emma Lawson Photography! I’ve seen a couple sneak peeks at some of the images and love them.
Worst Moment: Still not getting a midwife appointment sorted.
Looking forward to: I’m not sure! Finally being prepared for the new baby to come…or will I ever be?
