34 weeks! I remember being 6 weeks pregnant when we’d just found out and singing “34 weeks to go, we’ve got 34 weeks to go…” (to the tune of the song 21 Seconds – I hope you know what I’m talking about!!) now we only have 6 weeks to go! Providing she’s on time. Which she will be. Or else.
Total weight gain: Substantial. So much that my maternity jeans are getting tight. And that’s even my larger size maternity jeans from the very end of my last pregnancy… Goodness.
Stretch marks: Still none that I can see! I’m still using Balm Balm Mum to be Body Oil but not every day as I have the memory of…a pregnant lady! I keep a bottle of Johnsons baby oil in the shower so I tend to rub that on every day while my skin is still wet.
Symptoms: I don’t want to tempt fate but my restless legs seem to be much better! Whoop! Now I just have the dreaded SPD that I blogged about in my last post, here. I was signed off work this week because it’s got so bad, I’ve been referred for Physio now too, which at first I wasn’t too fussed about as last pregnancy I tried it and it didn’t help, but I might as well give it a whirl.
Cravings: Nothing to report really, the usual sweet stuff but nothing crazy. Having said that, Cadburys Creme Egg biscuits are pretty special! I blame my fellow blogger Shaz for this new addiction, she posted a pic of them on Instagram a few days so I went out hunting for a pack!
Best pregnancy related moment: We had a scan this week to determine whether the placenta is still low lying and thankfully it’s moved up away from the neck of the cervix! This is such a relief as if I can help it, I’d rather not have a c-section. Betsy is measuring quite large (!) – especially her tummy – so I think she’s been sharing the chocolate I’ve been craving! Looks like I’m in for another porker!
Worst pregnancy related moment: Just my SPD but I’ve moaned aenough about it so enough of that!
Belly Button: I still have a little half and half situation going on. It’s not pretty.
Wedding rings: OFF! *cries real tears* I took them off this week, it was quite hard work removing them too so it’s a good job I didn’t leave it any longer!
Ability to paint toenails: Yep! It’s probably not ideal to do so because I have to bend at the waist quite a lot but, Betsy doesn’t seem to mind and I don’t do it very often so I shall continue!
Predictions: A very chubby baby girl arriving bang on time!
