41 Week Update

I apologise now for the whining to come in this post.... Enjoy!

How far along: 41 weeks and 3 days... ugghhhhh 

Total weight gain: Im not sure but im guessing ive put some one this week considering the amount of food ive demolished, im like godzilla, if godzilla was a pregnant emotional overeating wreck!

Maternity clothes: Nothing new and im so over maternity clothes. I really just want to get back into my old stuff, im not stupidly thinking i'll slip into my skinniest of skinny jeans but just a top that doesnt need an extra foot of fabric just to cover my modesty (and bump) would be nice.

Stretch marks: Blergh (that is all)

Sleep: Pregnancy insomnia - this is mother natures way of preparing you for life with a newborn baby! Aint she just something else! 

Best moment this week/Happy or Moody: If you haven't twigged by now i'm being a complete Debbie-Downer (Thanks to the Kardis for that one...) For the past two weeks ive been getting myself all worked up for these midwife appointments where i expect them to either give me a sweep to get things moving along or to give me a date to start the inducement.... neither of which have happened!
At my last appointment on Wednesday we went through the routine checks, blood pressure, heart rate, protein in the urine etc etc... it came to my least favourite part the 'checking' position of the baby. If you are or have been pregnant you will know that its pretty uncomfortable having hands prodding and poking your bump and even grabbing at baby's limbs! Ouch.
This time round we got an extra little surprise, apart from not being engaged (we expected this) he is looking breech! Ah yes that old cookie again, this was mentioned weeks if not months ago but we though he had turned! Im now booked in for a scan to check whether he's breech and depending on the outcome could also be looking at having a c-section birth... oh how i did not prepare for this. I know plenty of women go overdue but i really didn't expect to be pregnant for a possible 43 weeks.. thats nearly 10 month! Yeeezus! As soon as this little boy makes an appearance, he's grounded.

Movement:  Wriggling away, far too comfortable in there!

Food cravings: Living off of toast and jam (yum) but as mentioned above i have pretty much eaten everything in sight alongside this.

Gender: Little boy.

Labour signs: No, not even a twinge... sigh sigh and SIGH!!!

Belly button in or out: Out

Looking forward to: My scan on Tuesday, hopefully i will have had some sort of a sign before but if not at least i will (hopes and prays) have some sort of an idea what lays ahead........ Fingers Crossed!

Bump: Bumpy at 41 weeks + 2
