37 Weeks Pregnant

We have made it to full term :D It is so nice to know that baby girl could be born at anytime and if she did decide to come she would be perfectly healthy and able to cope on her own. 

This week I've had A LOT of pains and even more braxton hicks. They start to get very regular and quite strong and then calm down after a couple of hours. They wake me up in the middle of the night and early morning. I know it's just my body getting ready for the big day but it is starting to get quite tiring so I am napping whenever I can just in case baby girl decides to make an appearance.

My heart burn has faded away a little but I have noticed that it tends to come in waves so I will expect it back in the next week or so.

My midwife appointment went well. I am measuring slightly behind but my midwife said this is because baby girl is so low into pelvis. She is almost fully engaged! Everything else is perfect. She was a little concerned that I hadn't felt baby girl move as much as normal and told me to go home, have a snack, a cold drink and see if that gets her moving. Needless to say it didn't so we had to go to the hospital and get checked out. More about this in my next post!

We finally ordered the pram and a baby swing. These should be coming in the next week and I must say I am very excited :D Also next week I have another midwife appointment.

Feeling very ready to meet baby girl. How did you feel at 37 weeks pregnant?

Thanks for reading,

Nicola xx
