33 Chaotic Weeks And Counting…

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!!

This is me at 33 weeks and 5 days. I think I have swallowed a fit ball.

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.

    1. Look at your fabulous bump! I just want to pat it. The next 6 weeks are going to fly by!! I can't wait to "meet" your little one.

      Thanks Lisa. I can't wait either. The sooner the better if you ask my poor hips. LOL!!! I am trying to keep my weeks busy to make the time go faster, I really am the most impatient person.... ever.... :-)

      My second little princess was born exactly 4.5kgs so I know exactly how you're feeling. By 30 weeks I was so sore and heavy and achy. You do forget all about it as soon as you meet your bubba. & I came out a lot thinner too! All the best.

    4. Wow, you DO look like you swallowed a fit ball!! Yeah, just what every pregnant woman wants to hear xx Jon-son was 4.8kg and he still fitted 0000 for a few weeks, especially as he lost almost 500gm in hospital (he used up his allowed 10%!!).

    5. commonchaoschronicle

      Knowing you Alyce, I have no idea how you carried a baby that was 4.8kgs!!! Glad to hear he still fit in the 0000's though!!

    6. commonchaoschronicle

      I'll be keeping you all updated when he makes his first appearance, that's for sure :-)

    7. You look gorgeous Jac, I love your hair!! Wish I was there to give you a big hug, lots of love Kat xx

    8. Hope the next few weeks go quickly and smoothly.... I'm excited that I'll be able to visit you when the bubba makes an appearance. If you'll let me... Howdy neighbour... :-)

    9. commonchaoschronicle

      You sure can Dorothy! I'll be looking forward to the catch up. :-)

      Thanks Kat, I'm not a huge fan of the haircut, I think its too short but I guess it will grow quickly anyway. Virtual hugs will do :-) xox

    11. Aww, look at that belly!! I'm bad for touching preggie bellies even though I did the whole "get out of my space! don't touch me!" when I was pregnant. Hope the next few weeks are speedy and smooth xx

    12. Man! Look at that fit ball! Hehehehe you know what I mean. xx Gosh! Can't wait to see your little bub too!!

    13. commonchaoschronicle

      Hahaha, people think I am joking when I say I've swallowed a fit ball... then they see me. It's poking out and massive. I feel as round as I did with the twins and there's only one in there!!!!

    14. Krystal

      Are you sure there's not another baby in there hiding at the back??? LOL For your sake I hope not hahaha, here's hoping the weeks fly for you Jac, you poor bugger, it's a horrible feeling when they are up under your ribs and as you say "feel like you've swallowed a fit ball"! Can't wait to meet bubs!
