I am now 30+4 day's pregnant so I am a bit late in writing up my week 29 pregnancy update as usual. I had a midwife appointment when I was exactly 29 week's pregnant and my blood pressure and urine are fine. I also had my blood's taken to check my sugar levels, iron count etc. I use to hate getting my blood's taken but now after two pregnancy's in a year and suffering gallstones and having surgery it's like second nature to me and it doesn't bother me at all anymore.
My bump was also measured and I was told that my bump is measuring four weeks ahead and I will be having a big baby, well this totally confused me as at my growth scan the week before I had been told that baby was measuring small! So I don't know what to think as in my pregnancy with Sophia my bump was small and I hardly put any weight on yet she was 8lb 2oz so I am just taking what they say with a pinch of salt. At the moment everyone seems happy with how my pregnancy is going and baby seems healthy which is all that matters, maybe I have just been eating too much or maybe the baby will be a chunky little 10lb baby only time will tell.
I am still feeling pretty good considering I am now into my third trimester which I normally find the hardest, I am still sailing through this pregnancy I still have no sickness, heartburn, stretchmarks or aches and pains. My skin is still glowing and my hair is still thick and shiny. My bump is growing all the time and I am feeling bigger all over this pregnancy, I have put weight on all over my body not just my bump. Baby definitely has a routine for kicks now and I can predict when he is going to be active and the movements are so big now I can actually feel his little feet sticking out my tummy at times and he like's to get them stuck under my ribs which can be quiet painful at times. I love feeling him move its the best part of pregnancy for me. I still have no craving's, I am eating some thing's that I probably would not normally eat but I am just more open to trying new food's now I am pregnant as I am normally quite a fussy eater. My appetite seems to have growing I am starving when I wake up in the mornings and I am eating so much toast but I am hardly hungry in an evening.
It has been really hot this week and I am starting to really struggle with the heat, I just feel so big and tired and the heat gets to me so easily. I feel all sweaty and out of breath just off walking to the shops and I have to have a sit-down and recover when I get home which makes me feel about 90 years old. I am also still finding it hard to sleep, I keep waking up during the night needing the bathroom and finding it hard to fall back to sleep. And somedays I really struggle with a lack of energy which I am sure is just down to the heat and running around after Sophia non stop all day long.
I have had a busy week this week with life, in general, we attended a 2nd birthday party and it was such hard work running around after Sophia in the heat and being so big but both girls had a great time. It was also fathers day and we just had a quiet day at home and I cooked a roast as my dad and the others half's dads were both away on holiday's. And I and the other half actually went out for a meal together to an Italians which was lovely as we never get the chance to do anything like that these day's and we use to all the time.
In baby news, I still haven't started baby shopping but I really must start as I only have nine week's left and I have a feeling baby might arrive early mind you, he will probably be late as both the girls were overdue.
