I am halfway between week 33 and week 34 of my final ever pregnancy and to be honest, I don’t know whether I should be laughing or crying.
I am in constant pain, pretty much everywhere, but a small part of me knows that I am going to miss pregnancy after the doctors tie up my tubes during the c-section.
Reassurance comes in the form of me telling myself that it’s just the next phase in our chaos filled lives. My ‘dream family’ will now be complete and I can focus on the other things I want for my little monsters, hubby and myself.
There is also a massive part of me that just wants to fast forward to the 2nd of July and get this huge baby out of me!!!
At the last scan they told us that he already weighed approximately 2.6kgs and that we should expect a baby around the 4.5kg mark. Which is a whopper for us!!!
It kind of makes sense as to why I am hurting so bad, especially in the hips department, but I do think all my special newborn clothes that I have packed in his case will have to be swapped for a larger size!!!
On the plus side of having a huge baby, is the fact that it’s looking like I will come out of this pregnancy thinner than I went in. I have so far put on 5kgs. The baby already weighs 2.6kgs and will get a whole lot bigger yet.
That weight does not include the placenta, waters and fluid that I am carrying around with bub, so I can only assume that most of the 5kg weight gain will be lost when they pull this little man out! Fingers crossed anyway!!
Excitement has kicked in and I can’t stop thinking about holding this new little guy in my arms. Time seems to be dragging so badly at the moment and I am trying to keep myself busy to speed things along!
I am almost organised, I still have to pack my suitcase and sort out care arrangements for the bigger monsters, but everything else in between will all fall into place…. I hope…
My main focus for the next 5 weeks is to finish off my craft projects, maintain the house work so it’s still manageable whilst I am in hospital and to catch up on all the blogging I have in the works.
Hopefully now that the kid’s birthdays are done and out of the way, I will have more time to do these little things.
