Week 33

6 weeks and counting! I am at that stage of pregnancy now where I am really struggling. I am feeling very uncomfortable and large. Obviously having this UTI at the moment really isn’t helping with how I am feeling. I am struggling to sleep and eat at the moment, and just want to sleep.

I have lost 2lbs this week thanks to the UTI. That brings my total pregnancy weight gain down to just 4lbs.

I am starting to think that I should perhaps get things ready for little man’s arrival. I have enough clothes for him, thanks to friends and family, but I need to buy the essentials and things for my hospital bag as well as actually pack my bag. I have brought a few little things for my hospital bag for me, and I have clothes for baby and his Ewan sheep and Cuski, but I think I may try to hold out until the older 2 children have gone back to school to get the rest of the bits ready. It will all seem too real when the bag comes out to be packed!

According to my phone app, baby is now weighs around 2kgs (4.4lbs) and measures around 44cms from head to toe. He is taking up a lot more space now, and don’t I know it! His movements have become very sharp and it hurts my belly when he tries to flip over. Most of the next few weeks now is pure weight gain as his fat starts to build up ready for birth. I just hope he doesn’t bulk up too much!!!

What do you think about my bump? Big, Small?

    I think it’s a nice size, not huge but not so small you’d worry – don’t think my belly was much bigger when mine were born ;( x

      Thank you. I’m definately bigger with him that I was the girls, but not as big as what I was with my first son. x
