Bump Watch - Week 40

Week - 40 and 3 days. I knew i'd be late! I don't mind but when everyone else due after me has their babies then I get grumpy.




Baby Developments - There's not really anything I can say here as baby is fully developed. All I can say is that she's cosy. I do worry though as the longer she stays in there, the heavier and longer she becomes!!!!! Ouch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Bump - Bump is still looking great. No stretch marks but quite veiny. I'm really pleased that i've managed to carry everything all at the front. It is pretty big now but hey that's understandable when you're overdue.



My symptoms - Where shall I start. I pee every 15 minutes probably including at night time. I don't get any sleep due to the frequent trips to the bathroom and the sheer uncomfortableness. She seems to love turning around which is so painful. The braxton hicks contractions I get are very sore to say the least. I do not remember having them like this last time.

Cravings - I'm still enjoying ice-cubes daily! I had a huge craving for madagascan vanilla though this week so I ended up by the ice-cream and normal cream.

Aversions - No aversions at all.

Exercise - Don't be daft! Getting out of bed is all the exercise I need for the day. 

Baby items purchased - At last we finally bought some things. We got a snuzpod which arrived today and I also went shopping to the Jojo Maman Bebe christmas event. They were doing a lucky dip at the till where you win 10, 20 or 50% off your purchases and I got 50. Wahoo. I bought bump 3 new baby grows including a christmas one.

Best moments this week - On my due date the hubby and I went to a cooking class that was taken by a chef that we both like called Omar Allibhoy. He's a spanish chef and we have his cookbook at home. It was blogging event which I was unsure whether I'd get to but luckily I did. It was fab and we both had a great time and learnt quite a lot.

Worst moment this week - Knowing at least 3 people who are due after me and they have all had their babies. :(

What i'm looking forward to - Hopefully feeling a bit more organised. I still don't feel ready.

How Eva is feeling - Eva keeps saying that her sister is coming out soon. I hope she's right.

  2. Oh honey, I feel for you. Going overdue really sucks. I ended up blocking people on FB because they kept asking "have you had the baby yet?" The rage. "Why yes, I did and then I thought I'd keep it a bloody secret just for kicks!"

  5. I feel your pain, going over is horrible. Well done on still getting out and about, I was too scared to go anywhere for fear of going into labour and just became a hermit! I remember the pain of what felt like everyone else in the whole wide world having their baby before me.
    You are looking absolutely amazing! Well done on winning the 50% discount!
    Good luck :)

  6. It sounds like an interesting week. The cooking class sounds great and i'm glad you were able to make it! Braxton hicks can be annoying! I remember them!

  7. You look amazing for being overdue. I don't know the feeling of being over (my three were born at 33+1, 39+1 & 38+4) but I can imagine it being really stressful and quite nerve racking too knowing that each day could most definitely be THE day. Good luck!

  8. Well done for only going to the toilet every 15 mins. I think I went every 5. Lol it was so bad when I was in labour. Waters leaked so I was induced on my second. So the midwife had to undo all wires all the time so I had to go to the toilet. Lol

  10. Look fantastic! I hope your little one arrives soon, I think 2nd time around the braxton hicks are much worse.

  19. Oh, I feel your pain. Both of mine were over two weeks late and I had to be induced both times. There is nothing worse than those last few days before you have the baby - they seem like the longest days of your life. Actually looking back, they probably were! I look forward to hearing your exciting news soon.xx
