Bump Update - 35 Weeks
This week baby boy is around 5.5lbs. He is running out of room so his movements are very, very clear to see and have for a few weeks to be honest. He is sporting full length finger and toes nails and has fully working kidneys. He is nearly fully cooked!
This week kicked off well with my baby shower. It was a wonderful surprise by my best friend. Baby boy got some lovely things and we had a lovely afternoon. I do plan on doing a post soon.
I also weighed myself this week and I am 2 stone up which is roughly the same as I was with Paige around the same time. It's nice that I haven't put on a huge amount more but I always knew that I was going to put the similar on again as pre pregnancy I'm only petite.
I've noticed a very faint linea negra above my belly button this week. It's that faint you can't even see it on a picture but it is there. With Paige I had quite a dark one. My ribs also hurt so much this week, not from him kicking them but just the weight of my belly is really hurting my sides, especially when I roll over in bed. I also noticed more stretch marks this week.
I've found it more painful to walk as this week has gone on. I'm feeling a lot of pain/pressure low down. At least it hopefully means that he is going in the right direction and getting ready for labour. I'm still having loads of Braxton hicks which are very annoying. They tend to last for around 2 hours each night.
I still can't believe I'm so close to having him. Only 2 more weeks until I am considered full term. I'm under no illusion that he will come early but a few days would be nice.
I am currently holding a competition to guess his birth weight so make sure you check that out here.
Don't forget to check out my 35 week update with Paige and last weeks 34 week update.
