39 WEEK PREGNANCY UPDATE BABY #2


Just 1 week to go until baby boy's due date! This week has flown by, especially with it being Christmas I haven't really been paying much attention to how long I have left. Baby boy is now the size of a mini watermelon and weighs roughly 7.25lb! I really think he's dropped again this week, and looking at my bump photo's you can see it too. 

I had my midwife appointment last Tuesday and everything seems to be fine. He's still measuring behind at 3 weeks now but isn't as far behind on the growth chart which is good. I honestly don't think he's going to be as small as they originally said. I had my bloods taken and got a call on Christmas eve saying my iron levels are really low again so I need to pick up another prescription. Other than that everything was fine and my next appointment will be when I'm 40+1 unless he's born before then. 

I was hoping he would arrive around Christmas but now that Christmas is over with I'm really hoping he doesn't come until 2015. I think I'll have to be induced again just like I was with Amelia. I don't know why but I just have this feeling that it will come to that! I still need to get the house ready, having said that I did have the urge to suddenly clean the kitchen and Amelia's bedroom this morning!

I've been having a lot of pressure and my Braxton hicks seem to have increased a lot with some of them being painful and taking my breath away. I went on a 3 mile walk yesterday with Amelia and my parents, I felt fine when walking but since then I've been having some pains. But definitely no signs of labour. Acid reflux has been a nightmare this week and has even been quite bad during the day too. Although no where near as bad as with Amelia. 

So, with 7 days left I am going to try and get this house organised again back in order after the aftermath of Christmas. We will be taking the tree down soon as I'd rather have it packed away in the attic before he arrives otherwise it will end up still being up until February! 

I wonder will we make it to week 40?

  6. Very exciting and you look fab. Try not to think as far ahead as being induced - just see what each day brings and let baby know you are ready for them! x

  8. Well done on keeping track of all the bump pics with the second one. I am so not organised with this one as Matthew keeps me on my toes. I am 34 weeks now and to date I think I have 3 bump pics.
    I am hoping to pack that hospital bag soon. I missed my induction by a couple of hours on Matthew. :)
