35 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2


35 weeks pregnant and I'm definitely feeling it! Baby is roughly 46cm, weighing over 5lbs (the size of a coconut which I don't understand haha) and is basically fully developed; he'll just mainly be piling on the pounds until he's born. His movements have really changed and there's a lot more jabs and pushing compared to rolls. There's constantly limbs poking out here there and everywhere which is quite painful at times, but so amazing to watch.

This week has been HOT! We've been experiencing a heatwave the past week and it's been hard to cope with, especially being this pregnant. I've not been able to go anywhere or do much as it's been just too hot to function. I've had to sleep with a fan on full blast all night just to try and cool me down, and I've been downing water like crazy. I'm hoping it will cool down a bit soon so I can at least feel comfortable in clothes haha, but who knows!

I saw my midwife for my 34 week appointment on Monday and all was well. My blood pressure, urine and baby's heartbeat (140bpm) were all perfect, and bump measured bang on 34cm. She confirmed baby boy is head down too, and has given him a good talking to to stay there haha. I'm now seeing her every 2 weeks so it's only another week until I see her again which is crazy - you know it's getting close to the end when those appointments get closer together!

I noticed this week that my boobs have actually starting leaking slightly! I never had this with Indiana so was really shocked to notice it while in the bath. Just another step to prove baby will be here so soon!

The week really ended on a high with my celebrating my Hen Do! I was treated to the most amazing spa day on Friday, and a very much needed pregnancy massage. I'm now feeling super relaxed, but I'm sure being back with Indiana will change that very soon haha.

I can't believe it's only 2 more weeks until we're classed as full term. One of these days soon I'll actually pack my hospital bag and get prepared - baby could really make an appearance at any moment now (not that I'm expecting him to come on time at all haha).


  1. I hope you had a good time on your hen do! How exciting, wedding and babies at once :)
    Eek our babies will soon be here, I love seeing how close it gets to peoples due dates. I'm still at 3 week updates right now despite being 34 weeks on Tuesday, I didn't realise people had weekly midwife appointments!
