38 Weeks Pregnant

It's Monday, so it's time for another pregnancy update. I've had a few poopy days (hence no blog posts) so I've have spent my time being very lazy and watching Homeland. 


How far along? 38 weeks today :) Two weeks to go!!
Total weight gain: 30lbs when I weighed myself a couple of days ago. I thought it was supposed to slow down at this point, but clearly I'm eating far too much cake.
Maternity clothes? For the most part, although in these pictures both tops I'm wearing aren't maternity. The vest is a stretch vest dress from Primark and the crop top I bought a year or so ago, also from Primark. Crop tops are great for adding over maternity vests and give a little more coverage - my boobs are huge now and I feel a bit exposed with just a vest!
Stretch marks? The same as last week...a few starting around my belly button where my piercing is and very faint ones on my boobs.
Sleep: Terrible! I've been awake for hours in the middle of the night with aches and an overactive mind!
Best moment this week: This last week was quite rubbish...I don't remember anything being a best moment.
Miss anything? Just feeling normal and wine, always wine!!
Food cravings: I've gone off food a bit, I don't crave things like I did!
Anything making you queasy or sick? I had a few days feeling sick but I'm not sure why.
Gender: Boy!
Labour signs: Braxton hicks, a lot of lightening crotch, back pain...I think these are classed as labour signs.
Symptoms: As I said above, but also carpal tunnel (which rather than just aching has turned into numb fingers most of the time), heartburn, indigestion, and I've been very emotional.
Belly button in or out? It pops in and out :)
Wedding rings on or off: On, but they won't come off!
Happy or moody most of the time: Hormonal...had a few crying fits over nothing and I've been a bit snappy :s
Looking forward to: I look forward to my little boy arriving, but at the same time I'm scared! It's weird I've been dying to meet him for so long, but now the day is arriving, I wonder whether I know everything I need to.


I wonder how many more of these posts I'll be's surreal that he could arrive at any point now...
