33 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2

Sunday, 21 June 2015

Eek just 7 weeks to go, and only 4 weeks until baby boy is classed as full term... scary! It's really starting to hit me now that I'm going to have a new baby in just a few weeks, there's no way of forgetting I'm pregnant anymore haha. Baby is just over 4lbs now (that seems SO big!) and is up to 44cm - the size of durian (again NO idea what that is haha).

One word to describe how I've felt this week is exhausted. I've literally got no energy left and just the simplest tasks leave me out of breath, and needing a rest. The pregnancy insomnia has kicked in again so sleep at night - even though I'm so tired - just isn't great. Then add in these hot, humid nights and sleep is just a disaster!

I have been absolutely boiling this week, and have just wanted the evening to come around so I can strip off and sit with my bump out haha (please tell me I'm not alone with this?!). My hands and feet have been especially hot which is more annoying that anything.

Earlier in the week Indiana brought me my doppler again so we had a listen to baby brother's heartbeat. It took me ages to find, and I was shocked when I found it so high up (nearly up in my ribs) on the right hand side. I can literally feel him in my ribs since then as well as I'm now pretty sure he's breech - cheeky monkey. His movements bloomin' hurt now so I'm hoping he moves asap!

Finally Happy Father's Day everyone! I've made sure to treat Jack to presents from both Indiana and bump this year. I can't believe next year we'll have two little ones to enjoy the day with.

  1. Happy 33 weeks, we were breech last week and Baby turned during the space of the week so don't panic, just spend plenty of time on your hands and knees! I crack out some yoga at any opportunity and think that helped. I'm pretty sure baby was only breech for 24hrs, we just happened to see our midwife that day!
