My Pretty Bump Update- Week 38

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Apologies for the lack of creativity in this photo! My bump is about the same size as it was last week (hence the same photo), but it has dropped a little bit now, which is a good sign apparently. I have put some stickers up around the cot. Took me AGES to find some that I liked, but these "Furry Friends" ones that I found on Ebay made me happy!

Am feeling tired, crampy, a little bit nauseous, impatient and big! My back has been hurting for a couple of days now and these Braxton Hicks are beginning to get a lot more uncomfortable! I actually feel like I have done the splits because everything 'down there' aches and hurts. This is, according to my midwife anyway, a very normal and good sign that my body is preparing itself for labour, which actually makes any of these niggling aches and pains a lot more bearable. At least I know things are happening now and the more pain I get the closer I know I am to meeting my little one!

Baby is very low now. Apparently her head is engaged or something and the midwife said she was the right way round for birth. Glad to hear my little baby is being so good and not causing any problems... yet! Hehe! Now it's all about the waiting game. As I have been feeling rubbish for the last few days (basically like I used to at that time of the month...) I am half expecting things to kick off at any time. Everytime I feel a twinge or pain I actually find myself smiling and hoping it will get worse!! How funny is that?!

Am very much hoping I will not get round to writing a Bump Update- Week 39. But that may be wishful, impatient thinking!



  1. That hat is too cute! Love it! Must be so exciting, you're really close now!

    Also, I'm currently running a giveaway for the chance to win a Clarisonic Mia! I'd love it if you could check it out on my blog. xx

  2. That cot looks so comfy, I want to curl up in it & go to sleep haha =]
