My first pregnancy update on this new blog and it's a 36 week one haha!
The end is in sight and I am ready for it! I have been really struggling with all sorts of aches and pains this time around, so just want her here now!
Like I just mentioned, aches and pains have been a constant symptom through this pregnancy. It was definitely not this bad when I was pregnant with Dominic and Lily! It hurts to roll over, get up and even just sitting sometimes! I had it confirmed I have SPD but by the time they and confirmed it, there was no point referring me to physical therapy so I've just had to live with it.
I have been feeling sick quite a bit recently too. I'm not sure if that's because I'm near the end or not. but it's not making the days fun.
Hot flushes have been a new symptom. Again, I'm not sure if that's due to being at the end or because the sun has come out a bit here. Either way, the fan has come out and is on all night haha.
Then there are the usual symptoms. Sleepless nights, heartburn and feeling, generally, uncomfortable all the time. I can't wait until all these symptoms are gone. I'm definitely fed up and just want her here. I need to get back to being able to play with Dominic and Lily properly.
Are we ready?
We are definitely ready! We have a few more bits to buy and sort out. We have sold our big bed ready to get a smaller one, we are just waiting for the people to come and collect. This should happen in the next week or so. We then need to buy some new teats for the bottles. We decided to keep the bottles we had from Lily and just purchase new teats for them, so they are on our list to get. Also, we are going to start picking up a pack of nappies and a tub of milk with each weekly food shop just to get our stocks up. I then want to get a little play mat for her. She won't need this straight away so it isn't a necessity.
We think she will be coming early and so do a few of my family members. I did say this with Lily and she ended up being a week late, but this time definitely feels different! You never can tell though. This may be the only pregnancy post on this blog if she comes early haha.
I think that's all I have to say for now. Keep an eye on the blog and my social media for updates on baby girls arrival!
