Don't mind the paint , I still haven't decided on which colour to go with yet!
Crikey, 33 weeks where did that come from? It doesn't feel that long ago since I passed the half way mark, this pregnancy has gone by so so fast! This week baby boy is the size of a durian (yes I had to google it too) he is about 17 inches long and weighs roughly 4.25lb.
I went on maternity leave with Amelia around this stage of my pregnancy as I was put on bed rest due to working too much and fainting. I've decided this time to work until December 22nd where I will be 38 weeks so hopefully I will be fine until then. I want to work for as long as possible this time before being off but I also want to enjoy Christmas and have a couple of weeks to relax before he arrives.
I now weigh 8st 8lb so am putting weight on which is good and I've put on 3lbs since I turned 30 weeks. Still no stretch marks to report and I'm actually quiet surprised as I keep forgetting to use any creams at night. I'm hoping I'm lucky again and don't get any - fingers crossed. This week I've been getting lots of leg and foot cramps, pretty much every time I bend down, stretch on my toes to reach anything, move when in bed, wiggle my toes...it's rather annoying especially at work!
My bump is looking massive compared to when I was pregnant with Amelia! I can't believe how much I've popped recently. I could hide my bump last time round at this stage and only friends and family knew I was pregnant as you couldn't tell by looking at me. Here's my bump at 33 weeks with Amelia.
I bought a few more bits for my hospital bag this week which have been arriving over the last few days, I can't wait to have it all packed and ready. I'd hate to be one of these women who go into labour without having anything packed! I like to be prepared. I also want to have a clear out in the house before he arrives as I hate clutter and don't really want to be living in a mess when he's here.
I still need to buy a few bits for the little man before he arrives and everything else can be bought once he's here as we don't need them right away. I must paint his room soon, I keep putting it off as I really can't be bothered! I would like it done before Christmas ideally!
