I have been so thirsty this week, I always want a drink and I have been craving Sprite - its so refreshing and I have also been craving Tesco chocolate caramel shortbread slices! Just typing it is making my mouth water, and I might just have to run downstairs and grab a slice now. My back has been really hurting this week, its at the top around where your bra strap goes, I hate having back ache, id much rather have belly pains instead. Weeing has been a nightmare this week, although I only really struggle in the evenings, I'm not sure if I just notice it more because I'm back and fourth out of bed, but it really makes me fed up. I wake up in the night around 4-5 times and when I go its the tiniest amount! The evenings I find so hard, that's when I get really fed up and sad, especially now that its my due date today!
I had my midwife appointment yesterday at 39+6 and everything went well, my urine, blood pressure, babies heart beat was all perfect, I am now happy to report that my bump is measuring 39 which is good. She said that he is lower than he was 2 weeks ago so that's another good thing as well. I see her again next Thursday and she will be coming to the house for that appointment, she said she will do a sweep - but I am still undecided on if I want one or not. She said a induction will be booked for around day 12 of being over due, but obviously we are hoping it won't come to that. Hopefully this will be my last pregnancy update?
I have otherwise been in a good mood and still seem pretty happy to still be pregnant, so that's good. I just want him to come safely and healthily that's all that matters, for now we are just enjoying the last few moments as a family of 3 and spending quality time with Isla. We are so excited to meet him, I am so ready for labour I just want to get it over and done with and then enjoy newborn snuggles, we are still hoping for a water birth so I hope they have a room free when the time comes. He could even be born the same day as the new royal baby as well so that's exciting! If he was I would so take back all the moaning that I have been doing ha ha. For now I'm enjoying everyone being nice to me and being able to get away with just going and laying down when I want to - only when everyone is home though.
Today at 40 weeks, seems like he may be even lower now.
