34 Week Update

 

This update, is a bit of a rant. So far I have felt compelled to treasure every single second of pregnancy, and I can honestly say I have enjoyed most of it and I am beyond amazed at how my body has adapted to accommodate a little human. However this past week, treasure every moment, I have not. I have spent the past two weeks sleeping (or not sleeping) with a mound of pillows between my legs as an attempt to reach some sort of comfort level. Once I have settled, I find myself getting out of bed every 30 minutes because my bladder has been restricted to the size of an ant. On top of pregnancy incontinence, every time I lay down I turn into a fire breathing dragon- heart burn has made an unwelcome return this week.

So sleep, which is pretty essential, is not on the cards for me at the moment. Aswell as this, maybe even because of the lack of sleep, my skin has erupted into an acne fest. I feel that I have been let down by the legend that is ‘pregnancy glow’. I am not glowing. I have been excited about this impending glow. So now I’m on the home straight I thought I’d be in the land of Jlo-esque skin. Instead I am a sweaty, spotty mess-Glowing I am not.

Rant over. On a more positive note, I had a growth scan this week and got to see little (or not so little) Baby Free again. No matter how many scans I have, each time I’m amazed that I actually have a baby in there. We even saw that Baby Free has hair! little strands of hair floating around. Also Baby Free appears to be a bit of a chunk, he/she is measuring a couple of weeks ahead, and the estimated weight at 33 weeks was 5 lbs! However according to Bev (my midwife) growth scans are notorious for being inaccurate.

Again I apologise for a slightly hormonal and sleep deprived update this week. I’m sure things will improve? ha.
