So here we are at the magical 37 weeks mark, this means that my baby is now fully developed and is ready to be born safely. Although, of course there is another three weeks before my actual due date.
At the risk of sounding like a ‘stuck record’, I’m feeling very tired, heavy and incredibly slow. I decided to tidy the girls’ bedroom the other day (it looked like a bomb had hit it), this easy sounding task would have normally have taken me twenty minutes or so, this week it took me almost two hours!! And worse than that, I felt so exhausted afterward that I was literally good for nothing, for the remainder of the day.
Insomnia has also recently kicked in, I seem to wake up at around 4am every morning and then can’t get back to sleep. So I grab my Dreamgenii pregnancy pillow and head down to the living room to watch a soppy film on Netflix or Amazon Prime. So far this week I’ve watched Endless Love, Lucky One and The Best of Me. Yes, I know all girly mush but at that time of the morning, that’s all my brain can handle – plus I wouldn’t mind if I end up falling back to sleep, not that I have!
For all these reasons, I’m now more than ready for this baby to arrive. The girls, are also getting very excited, as they realise that the birth is now very near. Most days Poppy asks if the baby will be born today, as if she thinks I know when it’s actually going to happen. I’ve tried to explain to her that it could be any day but of course I can’t give her a real answer.
Having said that, I do hope that little miss doesn’t decided to make her big appearance on Monday, as it’s just occurred to me that it’s a leap year and Monday is the 29th of Feb. There seems to be something sad about only celebrating your actual birthday once every four years, don’t you think? Or is that my hormones working overtime?
