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 have completed the hospital bag except for snacks. I think. Ultimately, all I need is my vagina, the baby and my hubby and I’m sure we’ll be fine during birth. I’m still feeling very anxious. I’m not sure whether it’s the labour, the birth or the after-math that’s making me feel so terrified.
I’m definitely at the stage where I want this all over now. The pain and tiredness of pregnancy has really been a strain third time round and I’m feeling incapable. I’ll be “full term” in two weeks which is exciting and nerve racking. Although I think I’ve been experiencing my mucous plug coming away since yesterday, but I’m unsure as it’s different to what I’ve had before. How do I know?
I went out last weekend and grabbed a few newborn bits so that’s made me feel a bit more content. I just feel like there’s so little time left now but it all seems a little unreal and close too.
