40 week pregnancy update.

Im writing my 40 week pregnancy update… something I never thought I would say. I was 10 days early with Pops and I was aiming for anything past that this time, I never imagined making it full term though. Add my last pregnancy ending at 11 weeks and it makes it even more of a shock.

The past couple of weeks have been really good, I’ve had more energy during the day then probably my whole pregnancy (that’s not saying much though) but night times have been more of a struggle. Restless nights, constant pee alarms and the very hard task of trying to turn over.

40 week pregnancy update

We’ve been making the most of our time with Pops, trying to make some memory’s of our little triangle before the baby comes and Pops is no longer our only baby. A thought I’m still struggling with.

Because I’ve never made it this far there’s so many new things I’ve learned, your hormones seem even more on edge for one. Another is the constant texts and comments asking if you’d felt any twinges yet or if baby has made an appearance… all of which I can only say no. Nothing. Nothing at all.

If we didn’t have Pops and need someone to watch her when I go into labour I would be so tempted to not tell anyone it had started. Could you imagine? I made the joke to my family today and I really considered it for a minute.

Would you consider doing that?

The midwife told me if all was well I can go over by 2 weeks, I’m not sure I want to go that over if I’m being honest. Let’s hope my next update will be the baby and not 42 weeks pregnant! Wish me luck, I think I’m going to need it.


Until the next post,
Are and Pops.

    I didn’t tell everyone i went into labour the second time around because i went into hospital to be induced with my first and 5 days later i still hadn’t had him. All the texts asking for updates really upset me. I was gutted it was taking so long and i didn’t need constant reminders. Fingers crossed it will be soon. I already know this time will be a whole different experience lovely. I am excited for you! <3
