Isla Jean, Pregnancy

Blueberry at 38 weeks!!

How far along? 38 weeks! Where has the last week gone, scrap that, where has the last 38 weeks gone!?!

Total weight gain: 21 lbs, not put any on since last week apparently, maybe it’s from all the running round like a mad man cleaning the house??
Maternity clothes? Maternity trousers and stretchy tops mostly….though if I don’t have to leave the house then it’s sweat pants and a hoody!

Stretch marks? I found two the other night! Mortified that I’d managed this long without any and now found two!
Sleep: What is sleep!?! It seems that pregnancy insomnia has fully kicked in. Still wide awake 5 hours after going to bed is not fun. Last night I ended getting up at 3am and doing some scrap booking because I just got so fed up of lying in bed trying desperately to sleep!
Best moment this week: Spending a couple of fun evenings with friends for dinner, and also buying a new car (finally!!!)

Miss Anything? Sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!! Also, being able to get off the sofa, or the floor with ease and not have Chris laughing at how much effort it takes!!
Movement: She doesn’t stop moving…unless I draw attention to her or someone wants to feels her moving/kicking, and then she hides! Little monkey!

Food cravings: Still none.
Anything making you queasy or sick: None
Gender: Girl! 

Labour Signs: None yet. I’m hoping she decides to hold off until after I’ve finished everything on my to-do list for tidying/cleaning the house. Plus I have various requests from people saying she’s not allowed to arrive during certain dates due to being out the country, away for the weekend, having interviews etc…. I’ll see what I can plan for you guys!!
Symptoms: Pretty much the same as last week really – feeling constantly exhausted, but being unable to sleep, needing to pee lots, heartburn, not being able to get comfortable when lying in bed, getting very uncomfortable when a certain someone decides it’s a great time to fidget loads!
Belly Button in or out? In, I think my tummy will have to expand significantly over the next couple of weeks in order for this to change!
Wedding rings on or off?
On, still loose, but less so than they were, I’m still paranoid that they’ll fall off into the bins when I’m taking the rubbish out though!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: My lovely mother-in-law coming to stay on Thursday, picking up our new car on Wednesday, my greenhouse getting delivered next Monday, and obviously meeting Blueberry (but not until everything is finished on my to-do list!!!
