293. 40 week pregnancy update!

40 weeks (+2), it feels like time has suddenly slowed right down to basically a standstill. I can't believe I'm only two days overdue, it feels like a lifetime! I was really hoping I wouldn't get as far as this post, but obviously here I am! Although, the closer we inevitably get, the more distant I feel, which is weird.

Baby is still the size of a watermelon (massive let down, I was sent the smallest watermelon ever so no comparison!) & could be any size at all really! If he stays in there much longer he's going to grow pretty big! Daniel was 8lb 8oz so I grow them pretty well! I do hope he's small enough to get use out of his newborn outfits though, some of them are so sweet!!

Sleep is awful, every time I moved last night I got a horrible cramp-y pain in my tummy, plus Daniel has been waking up at the crack of dawn! I really really should start napping with him during the day and taking advantage, because I won't be able to for much longer and I'll need all the rest I can get for labor really!

I'm pretty impressed with myself with how much I'm managing to do still, when I was pregnant with Daniel I didn't have to worry abut a house or another child, so I got it so easy! This time, I'm attempting to juggle everything & I'm not doing too badly! The house is pretty tidy, I'm on top of the washing, I've managed to keep us all from starving (mostly thanks to my Mum but I am still cooking too!), my blogging is in fact better than ever, and I still have time and energy to spend with Daniel! I think I deserve a pat on the back, from myself!

I'm such a hormonal wreck tonight, bursting into tears all over the place, I feel like a failure for not having this baby already, and every time someone texts or asks how I am I just want to cry! That sounds really ungrateful and obviously I appreciate the curiosity and support, but it's so so hard! I really hope he doesn't keep us waiting much longer, though I still don't feel like anything's going to happen soon!

Keep your fingers crossed?! My tummy feels harder today, which my Mum says is a sign! We had curry last night, but nothing, and I'm a little anxious to try anything to force him to come if he's not ready. I hav a midwife appointment tomorrow afternoon so we'll see what she suggests.

Lots of Love
Momma B & Babyboy
