36 weeks pregnant

Standard

Really feeling it now. Sleep is becoming so disturbed now due to lower back pain and I wake up each morning with such sore hips! I think this is probably what it feels like to be really old. Even the muscles at the top of my inside legs are hurting – I feel like I am holding a bowling ball between my legs! One week until the baby is classed as ‘full term’ and then I shall be writing him an eviction notice and willing him to come out!

I have started to get a bit of an itchy rash on the bottom of my bump. During the last few weeks of my last pregnancy, I developed an itchy rash called PUPPS. It was absolutely awful and spread all over my belly and down my legs. The itchiness was unbearable! All I could do was spread camomile lotion on it and try not to scratch. I am REALLY hoping that this isn’t the start of that again.

My husband spent Saturday working on his old crib which he found in his mum’s loft. I was pessimistic at first as it looked so dreary when he first pulled it down, however, after a day of sanding, priming and painting, it has come up lovely! (see pic) I have ordered a mattress and can’t wait for it to arrive so that I can get it all ready and see it all complete.

It’s my last week at work this week. Although I shall miss it, I am glad to be leaving this week, as by 3pm, I struggle to stay awake now and feel I need some time to relax before the baby arrives. I’m not one of these woman who feel content spending all day, everyday at home with the kids – last time I went on maternity leave, I really missed the buzz of work and find working three days a week a perfect balance of being ‘mum’ and being ‘Kelly’, so I’m a little apprehensive about leaving if I’m honest. I am planning to take nine months off but I reckon I’ll be gagging to get back after six! Kids are fantastic, but it’s nice to have a little slice of life which doesn’t involve baby wipes and kids TV.
