38 Week Pregnancy Update

Today I am 39 weeks and 1 day pregnant and have less than a week until my due date, six days to be precise!

I've been taking my reflux tablets again and have had plenty of lie ins, which I think is why I haven't been sick this week.

My milk has been leaking quite a bit in the nights, I've resorted to sleeping naked as I'm just so hot and I've woken a few times to wet patches where my boobs are. I've now bought myself these sleeping bras from Mothercare so that I can wear them to bed with a breast pad in them, I can't sleep in normal bras as they are just too uncomfortable. I ordered the bras in a size L but annoyingly they are too big which results in the bra moving around and my pads not staying in place. Still, it is better protection than nothing at all.

I've had a few aches and pains but nothing to get me excited enough into thinking that baby is on his/her way. I really hope that I don't end up going overdue as I am quite fed up now.

I gained 1lb in week 38, my total weight gain is now 5lb.

My bump at 38 weeks + 1 day.

We had our stair carpet and sofas cleaned by a local South Wales carpet cleaning company, we're super pleased with the results.

We also received our new fridge freezer this week, it is the first time we've ever had a brand new one, we've always got second hand up until now. We're really pleased with it and may review it soon. 

I've finally made a start on painting the dining chairs, the plan is to paint two chairs this colour, two chairs pale pink and the table white. I've wanted to do it for about a year and had the paint for about six months! \\ Treated ourselves to some gorgeous pancakes as they were on offer at our local Co-Op, they are gorgeous. I did go mad though as Bob stole one off my plate, I stopped talking to him for a little while. \\ Received my order from The Range, super pleased with the items. \\ Our new curtains look fab. \\ I had to find somewhere else to sit while our sofas were being cleaned/drying, I took to the corner of the nursery and quite enjoyed sitting there in the peace and quiet. 

We went out for a meal last Sunday, nothing fancy, just our local Table Table, my niece took this lovely photo of me while waiting for our food \\ Bob being lazy as always \\ Hospital bags packed and ready to go \\ We ordered Ewan the Sheep after hearing good things about him, I hope that our baby likes him.
