37 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #3
This week baby girl is term. So crazy!!! If she came now she would have such a great chance of surviving on the outside with little if any help. She is almost the size she will be at birth and her reflexes are kicking in. Weighing over 6lbs and 19 inches long she is nearly ready. The next couple of weeks are spent putting on extra baby fat. She is practising inhaling and exhaling fluid as her lungs prepare for her first moments outside.
This week I've had more of the same symptoms as last week. Nausea and general aches and pains. My legs are quite sore this week, I'm struggling on my busier days with all the walking I have to do. Braxton hicks are still very present and getting more uncomfortable. Heartburn is killing me, especially in the middle of the night.
I had a midwife appointment this week, more about that here. I also started getting things together for mine and baby girls hospital bag.
Waist - 30.5 inches, half an inch on last week.
Belly - 39 inches, half an inch on last week.
Weight - Gained 2 stone altogether
