35 Weeks – Countdown to Maternity Leave! #Pregnancy 2
I’m on a one week countdown to kicking off my maternity leave! Excited much!!
I can’t wait to have my lie-ins, although who am I kidding? Once you have a toddler that is out the window! Plus, I need to get Aj ready for nursery in the mornings as normal, but at least once she’s gone I will definitely be going back to bed! So I will be one of those mums dropping off her kid at the nursery in their pyjamas or something close! I don’t care!! 🙂 Orrrr, maybe I could get hubby to do it…
(I finally got around to taking a bump shot!!!)
I’ve actually got a few things lined up for the next few weeks, considering I haven’t done a single thing in terms of preparations – the joys of having a second child! Hubby and I were talking about it yesterday how we kept going window shopping and picking/testing things in the shops and the attendants always knew this was our first child, etc! Now I understand! This time, I plan on buying everything I need online! I cannot be bothered to go around the shops with a toddler running around and me trying to keep up with her!
I will also be doing some pampering sessions which is long overdue – my nails can’t remember the last time they saw a good polish! I’m considering a maternity photo shoot which we never got around to with Aj for some strange reason! Would be good for the memories if nothing else, a bit nervous as I’m a bit photo shoot shy! I’m fine with the occasional picture but a full-out photo shoot with a stranger, well I don’t know…
Also this week, I had my 34 week appointment with my midwife and that was one of my quickest appointments yet, something I’m extremely thankful for as it means all is well!
- Still measuring a little large but I’m following the growth curve so that’s fine
- Baby’s heartbeat is nice and strong
- Blood pressure and protein test were fine
- Baby movement is pretty good
- Baby has finally changed position and is making their way down in preparation for birth – this was something I was quite worried about and had already started googling breech births and all, the devil is a liar!
All in all, that’s a lot to be thankful for! My next appointment is at 36+ weeks but in the meantime, we’ll be having a tour of our birth hospital before then. We need to figure out the quickest route since the hospital is in the opposite direction from our normal day-to-day lives.
