I thought I should write one more very quick blog before our second princess arrives, and I still have to share my maternity photos with you 🙂
I am now 39+1 weeks, and really desperate and ready to pop already! This bit always drags! I just wish someone would tell me when it’s going to happen…I hate having to shave my legs everyday to be “labour ready” haha! I can only blame myself…I said at the beginning that I hope she arrives as late as possible so that her birthday is as far away from Christmas as possible! In reality, I’ve been wishing since 37 weeks she would already make an appearance. Thankfully last week my bump finally dropped a little bit meaning that I’ve been able to breathe again and my ribs aren’t in constant pain from being kicked non-stop. It has made such a HUGE difference. I couldn’t even bend forward enough to get up off the sofa because there was NO SPACE, but now I am a little more mobile! I also had three days of feeling majorly energetic! I finally felt normal, and was able to get on with normal life, and even chase Emilia around…but that’s disappeared again and I am back to being glued to the sofa, shoving matchsticks under my eyelids because I just feel so exhausted! Emilia has been amazing, and she even lets me have little naps here and there on the couch while she quietly does some reading or piles all her cuddly toys and blankets on top of me!
My hospital bag is finally packed, and everything is ready and in place for baby. So, let the countdown begin…and if any of you send me a “any twinges?” or “still pregnant?” texts, be warned! Hehe
Before I go, check out my maternity photos taken at 36 weeks, by my wonderful sister. Enjoy!
Until the next blog – “My birth story 2”! Xx
