Blueberry at 40 weeks (A.K.A. Hello due date!)

Posted a little late as I had a headache for the last couple of days, but here’s my Blueberry at 40 weeks post, also known as hello due date!

How far along? 40 weeks! Hello due date! But I think she’s still far too comfy in there and would like to make us wait a little longer!

Total weight gain: 25lbs
Maternity clothes? Still my maternity trousers…dug out a pair of dungarees I’ve had for years at the weekend which have always been huge….turns out not so huge on me these days…had to have a few of the side buttons undone so that I could move in them!!
Stretch marks? No new ones
Sleep: I don’t even know what this is anymore! Cannot sleep at night for the life of me, despite the fact I’m so exhausted. My mind just wont switch off….it’s not even stressing over Blueberry’s arrival, just playing over trivial stuff and thinking about completely random stuff!
Best moment this week: Spare bed being delivered, which we have now put together and rearranged the spare room, it looks so completely different in there now!
It’s sad isn’t it when a new bed is the highlight of your week!!
Miss Anything? Really been wanting cocktails this last week! I think it’s cos I know the end is in sight, and we’ve had some nice sunny weather (interspersed with snow!!!) which makes me think of summery cocktails….it’s been so long since I’ve had one πŸ™
Movement: She’s a right fidget bum, doesn’t stop squirming. She really seems to like sticking her bum out on one side though, and always the same side, strange girl!

Food cravings: Still none. Although I seem to have got my sweet tooth back now, maybe that’s partly explains my sudden weigh gain over the last few weeks after not really putting anything on!! I’ve had a huge tub of sweets by my side of the sofa since…before Halloween (as I remember giving them out to trick or treaters!)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just the heartburn
Gender: Girl!Β 

Labour Signs: None at all! Braxton hicks are more frequent these days though, but no pain and not regular…I think she’s going make me wait to get induced and rock up on our wedding anniversary!!
Symptoms: Pretty much the same as the last few weeks 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
Wedding rings on or off?
On, and there’s even less chance of them slipping off these days, which is reassuring!!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Someone deciding to make an appearance, hopefully sometime soon. Meeting up with the girls from my NCT course for lunch tomorrow…well, the ones who aren’t in labour that is!!
