34 Weeks Pregnant With Baby #2

34+5 days pregnant:

This week has been so much better in terms of my SPD, I have taken it easy and can now walk without any pain, the only time it hurts is when I'm turning over in bed, putting my shoes on, getting in and out the car etc which I can deal with. Ive been having strong shooting pains in my boobs as well which are pretty painful! Ive also been suffering with a few headaches, I've been trying to up my water intake though as I know I definitely don't drink enough. I'm still taking my pregnacare vitamin everyday with my evening meal, and will continue to take this until after the birth. 

I am SO tired now, I thought I was tired before but no its definitely worse now, I can easily take a nap by 10:30am, I feel so drained all the time and looking after Isla is starting to be so much effort, some days I just cant do the battle of getting her dressed so we just have PJ days. I also fell asleep the other day, half laying on the floor and half in Isla's bed as I went in to get her up from a nap I laid down while she was waking up and must of fell asleep myself, 20 minutes later I woke up and she was playing on the floor next to me! 

Ive been having charlie horses this week (thigh cramps) I get them while in bed and stretching in the night, they are so painful and its hard to breathe and relax until they go. My legs definitely hurt for a day or 2 afterwards when I start to walk. My period pains are getting a bit stronger, they are actually on the verge of being painful now and I feel so miserable when I get them as I just want to curl up on the bed, I've also been having a few cramps and my braxton hicks are uncomfortable too and I can tell when I'm having one. 

Its official... I have to put my trainers on using a long shoe horn now! I just cant bend over much anymore so putting shoes and socks on gets me so out of breath. My belly has also dropped, I noticed yesterday it had changed shape and today it definitely has got more longer, it has gone from looking like I had a ball up my top to now looking more like an Easter egg shape! I definitely feel like my body is starting to get ready for labour now, and I will be packing my hospital bag next week as well as id rather be prepared then not just in case. I see the midwife tomorrow, although ill be a day early it is classed as my 35 week appointment, I will talk to her then about whats been going on lately. I cant believe I am 35 weeks pregnant on Friday, only 2 weeks until full term its just crazy! 

32+4 days (Left) and today 34+5 days (Right)


  1. You look amazing! :) I had a really tough time with SPD so I know how hard it can be, and I wish I had some great tips on how to make it easier but I dont. Not long left now, I bet you're beyond excited. I felt like my last few weeks dragged by. x
