39 Week Pregnancy Update

Today I am 40 weeks and 2 days pregnant, making me two days overdue.

I was actually sick one day last week which came as a shock as I haven't been sick for a little while now. That wasn't very pleasant but thankfully it was only the one day.

I've had several aches and pains again this past week along with Braxton Hicks and an aching back, but nothing to get excited about. I've also had excruciating trapped wind and indigestion. 

I gained 1lb in week 39, my total pregnancy weight gain is now 6lb.

Bump at 39 + 1 \\ Bump at 39 + 4.

We had agreed not to celebrate Valentine's Day, Spencer got me a card and I got him nothing at all. I felt a little guilty that I hadn't bothered getting a card so ordered his favourite takeaway (Dominos) and asked them to write Happy Valentine's Day Spencer in the lid, I love that they did and also drew some hearts! \\ I bought myself some Valentine's flowers the day after when they were half price \\ I also bought some daffodils to pretty up the kitchen.

GU Zillionaire puddings are amazing (and half price in Tesco at the moment!) \\ Being on Maternity leave is great, I lounge around and have Kitty cwtches most days! \\ Pancake Day! My niece was in Hospital last week with pre-quinsy so we were visiting most evenings and got home late on pancake day we bought some ready made pancakes as a result, I had one with lemon & sugar and one with Nutella. \\ Pukka womankind tea is delicious. 


  1. How exciting - you're nearly there! I have a question I've been wondering throughout these lovely posts, when you say pregnancy weight gain is that including the baby or have you worked out how to take their weight off? I know everyone's different but you've been very lucky if all the weight you've gained is just your little human!
    Fingers crossed this will be your last pregnancy update for now, and good luck! :)

    1. Hi Megan, thanks for your comment :)
      I have been very lucky and have literally only gone up by 6lbs on the scales! I was quite ill early on in my pregnancy and lost a lot of weight, I have now put that back on along with an extra 6lbs. I'm hoping to be a size 8 after baby is born haha!
      Hopefully this will be the last one yes, thank you!
