Week 38 Pregnancy Update

How far along?
39 weeks today. 1 week til due date, woohoo!

Total weight gain?
I weighed myself at the weekend and have nearly put on 3st! I feel like that's so much, but I forget that so much of that is baby, fluid, and everything else that goes with carrying a baby!

Maternity clothes?
No change to the last few updates, whatever fits and is comfy! I did treat myself to a lovely summer kimono and some patterned trousers though. These thankfully fit me now too so I've enjoyed having some more fashionable items to wear!

Stretch marks?
None. I doubt I will get any now seeing as I'm about to pop!

Still not great. I wake up constantly with cramps and get excited to think I'm going into labour, but sadly they aren't progressing into anything more than a few twinges.

Best moment this week?
I had a lovely weekend at my Nana's 80th birthday party with all our family! Her actual birthday is tomorrow, but we dragged out the celebrations for a full week :)

Worst moment this week?
I've got to admit, I've been so bored this week! The novelty of being off work has worn off, and I'm struggling to fill my days as I don't want to go too far from home, but I hate being stuck in the house while everyone is at work! Hopefully Baby J will take the hint and get a move on :)

Miss anything?
I’ve only really missed having something to fill my days with, but I know I shouldn't complain and just enjoy it while I can!

Lots! Lots of legs and elbows popping out my belly :)

Food cravings?
I've not had too many cravings, just feeling quite dehydrated so drinking plenty of water.

Anything making you feel sick or queasy?
No. Although Tom did make some popcorn on Saturday night and the smell made me feel awful!


As with last week, still getting sore hips and extremely tired. I've also had a lot of cramping and Braxton Hicks, which gets me excited!

Belly button in or out?
In/flat/out... it depends where Baby J is lying!

Happy or moody?

Looking forward to?
Finally meeting Baby J!

And here is the bump for 38 weeks!
