Pregnancy Update: Week 35

Due date?
28th April 2013

How far along? 
35 weeks today.


Maternity clothes?
 Still leggings, tights and Midi dresses... Feet are swelling a little now so can't wear trainers for a long period of time :( 

Still waking every 4/5 hours for a trip to the loo and struggle to get comfortable and back to sleep if I wake up (today I woke up at 5am and it's now 6:50am...)

Still wriggling lots, kicking is more painful now and feels like she's got lower down my uterus. 

Chocolate still. I've had so many bars of Double Decker and Snickers this week...

Swollen hands and ankles, back ache and heartburn daily. Starting to get pains in my pubic area too which is the loosening of my cervix in preparation for birth (apparently).

Best moment this week?

Washing more of her clothes and putting them all away. It's all finally coming together now and we're ready for her to come!

Miss anything?
Still miss pizza and being able to eat certain foods; Really want dippy egg & soldiers! Also really looking forward to a drunken night out (is that bad?!)

 Anything making you queasy or sick? 
The smell of certain foods still although it's not as bad now as it has been.

Labour signs?
Nothing yet, apart from the shooting pains in my pubic region.

Belly button in or out?

Wedding rings on or off?

Rings I wear are still off... My fingers are way too swollen now to try and put them back on just yet.

Happy or moody most of the time?
Happy most of the time although bad days still occur!

Looking forward to?
Midwife appointment tomorrow to see how she's lying and to discuss my birth plan and obviously her arrival in 5 weeks time! Aaahh!! 

Are you pregnant or have just had a baby? I'd love to hear from you! 


  1. How exciting! I remember having all pink clothes ready and it was amazing! Now I have 3 under 4!! I must be baby crazy:)x Come see my blog if you get chance xx

  2. Ah I remember that pain of my little one getting into position,it felt like he was grinding his head into my fanny bone! I also had braxton hicks for ages through my pregnancy so had to have a nice soak in a bath every night. Have you thought much about your birthing plan? I bet your well excited to meet her now x

    1. Its horrible isn't it. She's been head down since 31 weeks but this week i've been having horrible pressure and shooting pains around my pubic region and unsure as to whether she's moving down further. Got a midwife apt tomorrow so will soon find out I guess! Going through my BP tomorrow too, hoping it'll all be straight forward, fingers crossed!


  3. Awww bless, not long to go! :) Its so exciting when you start getting everything finished up and you're all ready for the arrival!!

    And no, its not bad to be ready for a drunken night - I'm looking forward to having a drink too lol!

  5. No other creature in mythology has appeared in so many cultures from such remote parts of the world.
    Some well-known celebrities who sport foot tattoos are Charlize Theron and Carrie Otis.
    Your daily use cosmetics can help you in this purpose.
    Getting a tattoo is a symbolism that marks a person's passage to adulthood. If you would like, you can put lotion on the tattoo to help it look brighter and more healed during this final stage of healing. Neither will certainly throat or perhaps mind tattoos become permitted.
