37 Weeks Pregnant...Bump Diary.
Due to the fact that I have got so behind with my bump diaries, in the eyes of this blog I am already due another one. I turned 37 weeks at the end of last week. I am now officially classed as full term, which is incredibly exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. In just a few short weeks we will meet our new little lady.
Things have been quiet in terms of pregnancy the last week or so, especially since my all important consultants appointment where I decided on a planned c-section. I feel like a weight has been lifted of my mind since that appointment. I had a routine midwife appointment on Friday, where she took my bloods again to check whether I am still low in my iron levels. I still hate having bloods done, and although she managed to get some this time, I didn't realise I had literally bled all over my top. I had a little bit of protein in my wee, and some white blood cells, but then I am currently in the midst of a cold, so they weren't too concerned. My blood pressure is always low, something I am grateful for, considering I was born six weeks prematurely due to pre-eclampsia.
We have finally started to get organised for Bug. Mads is moving into a new big girls room, although there is no hurry as obviously the baby will be in with us for a while, and we have been enjoying getting that ready slowly. I moved all of her clothes into her new wardrobe and actually put some new baby clothes away- I still need to wash them all though. I also need to sort out Mads new born clothes and decide what we are keeping and what we will give to a charity shop. I have way too many newborn babygrows so she will have to live in baby grows for the first eight weeks! We still need to sort out the moses basket, hospital bag, car seat and wash the bouncy chair cover etc, so there is still quite a lot left to do.
I have been feeling very tired, I am a lot more achy than I was in my last pregnancy, but it is nothing I can't handle. Although I do feel run down, overall I feel really good and am still getting out and about and enjoying my last few weeks with Mads, although we have stayed in a bit more due to the snow.
We are relishing these last few weeks but also are extremely excited to meet our new little one. Only potentially one more bump diary to go!
