35 Weeks Preggo


Oh Lordy. How’dya like that 8 pound bump o’ baby? At this stage it’s like I’m carrying a bowling ball around, he is SO heavy.
I am;
– Exhausted
– Uncomfortable in bed, ergo not sleeping well
– Worried about how how big this kid and I are going to get if he hangs in there to term, (visions of Octo-Mom are further tormenting my sleep)
– Finding day to day tasks more difficult, bending down is nigh on impossible
– Still working and enjoying it
– Very very excited
– Very very much looking forward to sushi
– Missing my lovely clothes and looking forward to shopping once I lose some weight!
– Loving that E came to the growth scan this week with me, it was his first of the whole pregnancy and it was awesome. Because the hippo is so big it was easy for E to understand what he was seeing on the ultrasound. Leftover paranoia from my miscarriage that was discovered via a routine ultrasound – with E present – meant that Dave and I have gone to all previous scans sans E.

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  1. Melissa you are rockin' that belly! Not long to go now 🙂 Hang in there! (or hang your feet up for a night)

    Thinking of you x

  2. i just thought of something when reading this here and straight afterwards i wondered, how have i not thought about it ever before?!

    in many places i've seen women say how uncomfortable they are in the last stages of pregnancy, and how heavy their tummy is. sort of like you write here, saying that it's like a bowling ball to carry around.

    me? at 35 weeks i was still playing hackey with workmates. (mind you, i twisted my hip REAL awkwardly whilst trying to hit the ball and my midwife rolled her eyes and shook her head when i came to her office saying that now it really hurts.)

    and then when i read your sentence about "that 8 pound bump o’ baby" it dawned on me that even whilst heading to hospital, mine was only 5 pounds 4 ounces, so technically i was, even at full term, probably feeling along the lines of what you felt at, what, 32 weeks maybe?

    an then i thought: ow.

    great photos, by the way =). happy carrying!

  3. Still gorgeous xx It's so nice that E could come to a scan and see so much – and that by this stage, your fears have been well and truly allayed.
    37 weeks is full term and a good time to have a baby 🙂
