Pregnancy Diaries – 38 Weeks #3

My 38 week pregnancy with P2 was quite different to this pregnancy. I had terribly itchy skin and was feeling quite ill. This week I’ve been feeling very uncomfortable, especially in the evenings. I’m getting frequent tightenings but only in the evening. It’s like my body is telling me to rest even though it’s pretty much all I have been …

What To Pack In Your Hospital Bag

My hospital bag’s been packed for a while now but a dream I had the other night left me trying to remember whether I’d packed a hat or a blanket for baby, or what I’d actually packed. So the bag was brought inside again so that I could sort, repack and take the opportunity to photograph the bits to create a post …

Pregnancy Diaries – 36 Weeks #3

I seem to have lost 1.7kg in the past week?! Not quite sure how as I’ve been eating what feels like non-stop. My appetite is ridiculous. This week I have actually been feeling a bit better in myself with regards to preparation things, but my body isn’t feeling any better. Today in particular I’ve been feeling a lot of pressure …

Pregnancy Diaries – 35 Weeks #3

I’m feeling big now. Really big and really heavy. Everything seems to be pulling downwards. I get a lot of pressure and discomfort in my lower bump which the midwife said is due to the fact P3 has been snuggled low in my pelvis pretty much the whole time, especially now. I’ve managed to pack the girls bags now and …

Pregnancy Diaries – 34 Weeks #3

I’m getting increasingly nervous now. The fact that I have 6 weeks until my due date, but only 3 weeks until I’m classed as “term”. It’s scary. You’d think that I would be a pro at pregnancy and birth by now but I think the fact I only gave birth last year means that it’s all still so fresh in …

Pregnancy Diaries – 32 Weeks #3

I’m feeling a little more positive in myself this week compared to last week but pregnancy has certainly started getting difficult with regards to moving around. Apart from the obvious running after P2, I haven’t been very active this pregnancy anyway but this past week I’ve been struggling with random shooting pains in my groin whenever I get up from …

Pregnancy Diaries – #3 Growth Scan Results

My midwife had slight concerns for P3s growth since I was 28 weeks and measuring a few weeks behind. She sent me for a scan today to make sure everything was actually ok. I hadn’t been that worried until last night and just before the scan when sudden thoughts of the worst kept filling my brain. What if there was …

Pregnancy Diaries – 31 Weeks #3

My energy levels have stooped. I’m so exhausted this week I’ve been going to bed quite quickly after the girls. Despite this though I’ve had motivation appear from nowhere to sort the kitchen cupboards and even walk to Tesco to grab a few bits and bobs here and there. I’m going to blame my pregnancy on this next thing I’ve …

Pregnancy Diaries – 29 Weeks #3

This week has seen us attending two maternity appointments. The first was down at the hospital with the consultant who’s been watching over me. I’m technically classed as a high risk pregnancy again for preterm labour so they’ve wanted to keep an eye on things, however, on Monday they decided to “discharge” me from their care. On the same day …

Pregnancy Diaries – 28 Weeks #3

After a short spout of bad weather, the good weather is back and my golly isn’t it?! It’s been an average of 26c the past few days and it doesn’t look to be cooling down. This heat is dreadful and I can see why everyone moans about summer babies. Both my girls were born in winter months meaning I was …

Pregnancy Diaries – 25 Weeks #3

The pregnancy seems to have slowed down and not speeding past as quickly anymore. There’s still 15 weeks left!!! This week my bump seems to be bursting and I’m using Bio-Oil and Baby Oil as often as possible. My belly button is stretching and becoming itchy which is a little terrifying as I really do not want what happened last …

Pregnancy Diaries – 22 Weeks #3

Pregnancy seems to be agreeing with me at the moment. I haven’t felt sick in a long time and my tiredness is managed slightly by having short naps with P2 in the day time. My hips, however, are another story. I’m literally in agony if I do too much in one day. I cleaned the bathroom, a pretty small room, …

Pregnancy Diaries – 17 Weeks #3

This pregnancy seems to be flying by. People ask me how many weeks I am and I actually have to really think about it. I don’t feel as connected with my body as I did with the girls, it’s very strange. We have plenty to be excited about but I think my worries are overwhelming that excitement at the moment. …

Pregnancy Diaries – 12 – 13 Weeks #3

Apparently I’m entering the second trimester already! I’m supposed to start feeling more energised and less sick from now on… We’ll see… Week 12 saw a huge wave of exhaustion and dizziness. Hubby told me to enjoy this pregnancy as it will be my last but it’s very hard to enjoy it when you feel so darn rubbish!! I’ve literally …
