35 Weeks Pregnant

35 Weeks Pregnant

35 Weeks Pregnant

Again I don apologies for the lack of updates but as its coming to the end I thought I would just do a quick round up of the last few weeks.

How far along 35 weeks

Countdown. 5 weeks to go

Maternity Clothes. I bought a maternity dress from Boohoo as I had to go to a funeral and had nothing that fitted me.  I have also wore it for work as maternity stretchy dresses have become my best friend in the last few weeks for work – they are so comfy compared to trousers.

Stretch Marks. Nope nothing yet and still using Palmers Cocoa Tummy Butter which feels lovely and smells delicious. I have also been using Cussons Mum and me Soothe & Nourish body lotion with feels lovely on my skin and keeps it hydrated especially in this weather.Sleep. Awful, I have had raging heartburn – but have recently found drinking a cup of peppermint tea before bed really helps. Also the dreaded restless leg, which has turned in to my whole body just feeling restless. I have also been feeling so achy and pains in my stomach and it doesn’t matter which position I lie in or how many pillows I have supporting me.

Best moment this week. Finally finishing the nursery off, i can now get in to full nesting mode of washing and organizing all his bits and pieces. Also the fact that I am finishing work next week after bringing my maternity leave forward by a week.

Worst moment this week. Just the lack of sleep and feeling uncomfortable all day!

Miss anything. Being able to eat Pate, its something I just want at the moment. I also want to just lie on my stomach of a night, something I have really missed as that was my favorite sleeping position.

Movement. Loads of kicks from this little fella, and my stomach is doing some funny waves.

Food cravings. Fanta!!!!!

Sickness. Same as last time cooking any sort of beef, hamburgers, mince eeeew the smell makes me nauseous.

Gender. Baby Boy

Symptoms. Just the usual, shortness of breath, tiredness, round ligament pain, aches. heartburn.

Belly button in or out. Outie

Happy or Moody. Happy that its coming to an end soon.

Looking forward to. Finishing work next week yayyyy!!!!!

Workouts. None been so lazy.

If there is anything else you would like to see or think I have missed up update wise then please let me know and I will see you for next weeks update.

    I so want to lay on my tummy too! 21w! We are doing up the nursery this week so looking forward to that. Sorry to hear slee is challenging. Is that why you stared maternity leave early? I’m using the cocoa butter too and hope that it works 🙂 I make hubby slather it on every night. Good to hear success stories. #pocolo

    I’m 36 weeks so we are bump buddies! I can’t wait to sleep on my tummy, I’m suffering terribly with SPD and I am on crutches so I can’t wait for him to just be here now! #pocolo
