7 weeks to go and it cannot come quick enough. The last few days I really haven’t been enjoying this pregnancy at all. I’ve been really uncomfortable, experiencing a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions that are very tight around my belly and back. I’ve also had cramp type pains in my pelvis, restless legs, cramp in my legs and not to mention the heartburn and constant movement from the baby that it actually makes me feel sick.
I am feeling really big, despite only gaining another pound this week, bringing total pregnancy weight gain to 6lbs. Baby is sitting all out front too and can’t make his mind up as to whether he wants to be breech, cephalic or transverse.
This pregnancy is starting to remind me of why I hates being pregnant first time round (also with a boy!). It’s making me really grouchy and I just want it over with now.
Regarding baby – he’s piling on weight now and will gain approx half of his birth weight from now until he’s born. His skin is also plumping up and becoming soft and smooth and he could well have a head full of thick hair already! If his brother and sister are anything to go by, he’ll have a fair amount!!
That’s it for this week. Hope next week is slightly better!!
