If you missed my week 35 + 36 bump update, you can catch it right here.
Week 37, completed! So how is full term pregnancy I hear you ask? Bloody tough I tell ya! I constantly feel heavy and tired and even simple tasks like walking at a normal pace are a challenge! Apart from feeling like I’m growing bigger every single day, not a huge amount has changed over the past week.
I have however started to feel more pressure and pain, when I’m walking, in my groin/pelvic area, lovely I know. I’m assuming either the baby has dropped slightly(I don’t think he has but we shall see what the midwife says) or it’s just the pressure of his ever growing weight!
I thought that at this point in my pregnancy I wouldn’t be super hungry all the time as there just isn’t any space left in/around my stomach, but no, I’m constantly starving, no matter how much I eat, I swear I can’t feel full anymore? It’s odd and actually quite annoying because all I really want to eat is chocolate and pizza.. not the healthiest of choices really. Fun fact, Jack and I have banned ourselves from ordering from our favourite vegan pizza place until after the baby is born! We’ve not yet caved since we agreed a couple of weeks ago, but I almost placed an order this week but it was closed so I couldn’t, haha!
The only other thing to report at the moment is that I’ve been having lots of braxton hicks contractions that don’t hurt at all but feel rather odd. They make my stomach go super hard all over.. the only way I could describe it to Jack was, imagine if you have a balloon and inside that balloon you have a shape say, and if you suck all the air from the balloon you’re left with an odd shaped, tight balloon? Do I sound mad or does someone understand what I mean, haha! How would you describe your braxton hicks?
