35 weeks pregnant

Standard

Wow, check out this picture I have put together! The first is of me at 35 weeks pregnant with my son in 2009, and the second is of me this week… I think I look pretty much the same shape and size as before? I wonder if my bump would look any different if I was carrying a girl? (Something which I am not planning on finding out by the way!)

This week I have had the munchies again – I have been eating for England! Today for breakfast I had cereal, followed by a fruit and grain bar at 10, a huge scone with cream and jam at 12, a sandwich and an apple at 2, a yogurt at 4, sausage casserole with a jacket potato for dinner and a box of Malteasers before bed! My daily intake usually consists of cereal, a sandwich, (occasionally a sneaky chocolate bar) and my dinner. I am going to have to blame the baby and insist that he must be putting on lots of much needed weight this week!

The baby demanded I ate the huge scone with lashings of cream and jam, and the family sized box of Malteasers, honest!

We have finally bought the last remaining items which we needed this week – a baby bouncer chair, a play mat with things which hang down for baby to grab at, a mattress for the crib and a baby bath. The crib, I must add, still needs work. Nathan found it in his mum’s loft and it happens to be the one which him and his siblings slept in as babies. It’s a lovely crib but needs a good clean and fresh coat of white paint. Will look lovely once it’s finished – a task for my husband at the weekend I think! The baby bath was a bargain. Found it on ebay and won the auction at an amazing price of 99p! (I say won, but I was actually the only bidder!) Am off to pick that up at the weekend from a seller who lives 10 minutes away from me. So glad I checked on ebay as I was going to buy an identical one from Mothercare for £15.99! (I could spend the £15 which I saved on chocolate perhaps? Hmmmm…)

Been feeling ok this week but I will certainly be happy to have my body back to myself in a few weeks time. Sleeping is becoming so uncomfortable – I keep waking up with a sore back or hips and whenever I roll over, I wake myself up because of the extra weight I’m trying to pull over with me. Only five weeks left but I am secretly hoping that it is only going to be two or three. My hospital bag is packed so I’m all prepared now… I think!
