I am now 33 weeks pregnant, which means only 7 weeks until I am due and a maximum of 9 weeks until this little guy arrives! We are nowhere near ready, but are finally starting to get organised. I am finding the nesting instinct comes and goes (ok so it mostly goes), but I have periods of productivity interspersed with lots of lazy and hopefully we will be ready by March.
One thing I really wanted to try this pregnancy was a co-sleeper crib and our Snuzpod arrived this week. I haven't set it up yet, but we have somewhere for the baby to sleep now which is the important thing! I have also started learning about Hypnobirthing thanks to the CalmBirth School - something I have been meaning to look into since I found out we are pregnant. I am feeling really positive about labour and I am enjoying the course and learning more about my body.
I haven't seen the midwife since 27 weeks but I do have an appointment booked for 34 weeks. According to my personalised growth chart, if I follow the same line from my last measurement, baby is around 6lb 3oz this week which is scary knowing I have so long left! I don't think my bump is as big as during the last two pregnancies but I am certainly not expecting a small baby. I am struggling to wear most of my maternity tops as many no longer reach my jeans so there is a lot more dresses worn as tops.
I am definitely starting to feel this pregnancy in my body more, and have a bath every night now as I find I need it not only to relax my body but my mind as well. I don't have any braxton hicks or backache yet but I think I may have the beginning of mild SPD as I am starting to get aches that I haven't had before (this is according to Dr Google of course). I am still sleeping well and mostly sleep through the night thanks to lots of pillows and somehow I seem to have more energy now than I have throughout the rest of the pregnancy.
I am definitely getting more hormonal now, and I have a lot less patience with the boys than I would like. I am using the breathing techniques from the hypnobirthing course when I feel stressed as I know it is something I need to work on.
As for food, I am still munching mozzarella like it is going out of fashion, but the sweet stuff has made a comeback (conveniently timed with the return of the creme egg) and so mostly I am just eating everything now.
I am still enjoying this pregnancy and I really don't want him to come yet, but I am starting to see how people get uncomfortable in the final weeks.
