29 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2

Sunday, 24 May 2015

It's so strange that sometimes I still forget I'm pregnant, even though I'm 29 weeks today - pretty close to the 'heavily pregnant' stage I'd say haha. Baby boy is apparently the size of an acorn squash and now weighs close to 2lbs and measures around 39cm long. I have a feeling he's a bit bigger than that though if his sister's birth weight is anything to go by (8lb 4oz not overdue!).

I had my midwife appointment this week where I was 28 weeks and 3 days. Is it just me who gets excited for these appointments haha? It was lovely to see her, and even nicer that even though this is my second pregnancy, she's seeing me for the same amount as if it was my first.

Everything was perfect; his heartbeat was 144bpm, my blood pressure was 108/72 and my urine was fine. She had a feel and confirmed he's head down with him bum sticking under my ribs on the right (although I'm not sure if he's turned since then). She took my bloods which Indiana really enjoyed watching haha and I've got my whooping cough jab booked for Thursday. She measured my bump for the first time and I'm so happy it's measuring perfectly at 28cm!

Now I know he's head down I can definitely feel it. I've been getting 'lightning' type pains throughout the week which I did not miss haha. His bum has been really pushing against my skin too and it's quite painful (you can feel him if you touch my bump!).

Only 5 more days left at work now although I'm feeling done already. After a 9-7 shift on my feet all day yesterday I had really bad pains in my bump, and my feet were killing me! I'm back at work today but think it's definitely time to ask for a chair as I just cannot do it anymore.

Next week we'll be on the proper countdown and I can't believe it. We are so relaxed this time and should probably start buying things and thinking of names!

  6. I can't believe you are almost into single figure weeks, it's gone so quickly! I always forget I'm pregnant, you can tell because I end up whacking doors and walls with my bump when I've misjudged the gap haha.

    You're not the only one who loves midwife appointments, I used to get so excited. Shame about all the aches and pains and god, the lightning pains only get worse second time round. By the way.. hello boobies! They've sprung from nowhere.. how do you get them to do it? I want boobs! xx

  7. Awww I cant beleive how close its getting. Once you get to 30 weeks it seems to fly past! I must be the only person who didnt get those lightning pains but they do not sound pleasant at all! xx
