HOW’S BABY DOING
Baby is measuring between 17-19 inches long, and could weigh between 4-6 lbs! He will still be putting on around half a pound a week until he is born. Baby's bones are hardening ready for when is born, he also is keeping his eyes open while he is awake inside the uterus and can respond to light shining through. 

WEIGHT CHANGE
I've decided not to get on the scales again until nearer delivery.

SYMPTOMS
I've been suffering with headaches this week which hasn't been nice, but I noticed I also seem to have a bit of a sore throat so maybe I'm coming down with something.. I really hope not! Ive also been having a few pains in my lower belly and side of my belly which hasn't been fun. I had 1 day this week where my head went all funny and I thought I was going to fall over, I woke up OK the next day otherwise I was going to call my midwife. Ive been peeing so much in the evenings, sometimes going 7 times before being able to get off to sleep, and when I do go its the smallest amount ever!

SLEEP
I'm waking up around 2 times a night for a wee, I've also noticed I seem to wake up at 6:30am and then struggle to get back off, by the time I do my alarm starts going off - typical.

CRAVINGS
I have been craving sweet popcorn this week, I can easily eat a whole bag to myself which isn't good! 

HOW I’M FEELING
Ive been feeling really anxious this week, I am going to do a separate blog post on it as I've realised I am struggling more than I thought I was. 

MISS ANYTHING
Being able to bend over without being in pain and having a baby squashed in my ribs. 

FAVOURITE RECENT OUTFIT
I have been thinking about the near future, I want to give breastfeeding a good shot this time, so I got some feeding bras and vests for post delivery. I cant really wear the vests now but they are my favourite recent items I have bought clothing wise. 

BEST MOMENT THIS WEEK
My Husband being able to hear baby boys heartbeat by placing his head on my belly, its so nice that he gets to experience that minus when the baby kicks him in the head!


LOOKING FORWARD TO
We have bought baby boys drawers, we just need to build them and then I can start washing clothes and getting them put away and organised. We also want to slowly start setting bits up for baby so his older siblings can get use to them and slowly transition the fact a new baby is coming soon!
