Dear Daisy, It is your first day at school...

Pregnancy Update: 38 Weeks pregnant

38 Weeks?!! What?!!!

I made it to another week, with all the pains and contractions of last week I didn't know if I would be writing this, but guess what I am! And now I think I may be writing a few more! The pains and symptoms have worn away and left me just feeling rather pregnant and used to the idea that this baby could in fact be late. I bloody hope not though. I think I may lose the will to live slightly.

I keep having days/ moments where I have pains that can time and that take my breath away and then as if by magic they go as quick as they came. I must just have a super sensitive uterus that doesn't like lugging around a big full term baby but actually will hold on to him for a while longer, because it can!

I made it to yet another swimming lesson this week and although I really wasn't feeling it before hand and actually was close to turning around and driving home, I enjoyed it! And Daisy absolutely loved it, so it was worth finding that motivation to go. Last week after swimming lesson I had loads of pains because I think I maybe over did it, but this week... NADA! NOTHING! Ah well, it was worth a shot.

I am trying to be as active as I can so I give him as much chance as I can to get his way down that canal and out into the world, but it is a fine line between what is appropriate and what will just knacker me out and make feel horrid afterwards. I have woken up a few days now feeling just rotten, really sick and just yuck! No idea if it the hormones or maybe tiredness creeping in.

I had the midwife Monday and there wasn't much said to update you on really. He isn't as engaged as he was last time, although they do pop in and out of your pelvis second time around. He was measuring big AGAIN! and well that was it... Nothing I didn't already know. I did talk about the millions of braxton hicks I had been having and the contraction type pains and she did reassure me that time spent doing it now takes it off the time of the actual labour - if that is true or not is anyone's guess, but I will take that! Look on the bright side!

I have been filming a video diary of how I have been feeling and what I have been up to so to see the latest week you can see it below.
