PREGNANCY UPDATE - 34 WEEKS WITH BABY #2!

by - January 21, 2015

How far along: 34 weeks and 3 days. 
Weight gain: A grand total of 1stone 9lb. So that's only another 1lb since I was last weighed, it might have something to do with the fact I've ran out of Christmas Chocolate and have started eating real food again.
Pregnancy Symptoms: Fatigue has come back to bite me...I seriously cannot shift it no matter what I seem to try. I've been having short bursts of energy in the evenings so have been using the time to do some cleaning and sorting. Also shortness of breath my friend commented on how I walked less than a meter talking and by the time I had sat down I was out of breath. I'm looking forward to her dropping so my lungs and diaphragm can have some room. 
Stretch Marks: I found two this week, both on the lower part of my belly, they appear where she has been causing me pain with her movement and I could almost feel them coming. I'm trying very hard not to be an emotional wreck over them as they are just one of those things you can't control but it's bloody hard when you do everything in your power to prevent them.
Best moment this week:Finding the leak we had coming through downstairs has stopped and is drying up...so glad we don't have that to worry about 5 weeks before my due date!!
Movement: So much movement, when I went for my scan last week they told me she was lying transverse and since then I have been getting very painful jabs and movement on my left side so I'm hoping she's deciding to put her head down.
Miss anything? Being able to put a pair of socks on without carrying out an exercise routine, also being able to sit up to get out of bed instead of rolling. 
Food cravings: We have been on a healthy eating diet since we both went back to work and having loads of fresh fruit and healthy snacks to constantly eat seems to be keeping the cravings for bad things at bay....although Cadbury Creme Eggs are back on the shelves and they are a serious weakness of mine.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not this week. 
Gender: Girly.
Labor signs: Been having quite a few braxton hicks, there not painful yet with added pressure down below. 
Belly button in or out? Still very flat 
Engagement ring on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy :) 
Looking forward to: My midwife appointment on Thursday to see if madam has got into the right position.
