My 39th week of pregnancy has gone by in a flash once again. I keep getting cramps that disappear after a few hours. It's really frustrating as I keep thinking that something is going to happen but nothing ever progresses - this baby really wants to keep us waiting!
Having said that, it still hasn't really hit me that I'm going to have a new baby soon and I don't think it'll all become a reality until he or she is actually placed in my arms. I've been trying lots of different things to bring on labour naturally but nothing is working, although I can't say I'm not enjoying all the warm, bubbly baths! We're all just so excited to meet the new baby now and I can't wait to introduce Tyler Lee to his baby sibling. I just hope baby doesn't keep us waiting too much longer, forty weeks already seems like a lifetime...
Baby is the size of a - pumpkin, according to my Ovia pregnancy app.
I'm looking forward to - meeting our baby and seeing what he or she looks like, please don't let the wait be much longer!
My favourite moment was - having some quality time with my boy out in the garden on a very rare sunny, Irish day.
I've been feeling - irritated, crampy and just ready for pregnancy to end.
I've been buying for baby - nothing has been bought this week. I haven't even ventured outside very much for fear of my waters breaking or passing out in public!
I'm missing - not being pregnant, it seems so long since my body was just my own and ache free!
I'm craving - nothing but ice-cream, notably Magnum's almond variety is really helping to soothe my silent reflux.
I'm loving - how cuddly and attentive Tyler Lee is being towards me, I swear he knows that something big is going to happen in our lives very soon.
I've been meaning to - get as much as I possibly can organised before baby's arrival, although I don't think I'll be one of those women who has meals frozen down in batches before baby arrives - I wish I was one of those women though!
I can't wait for - the moment we get to meet our baby for the first time, it'll be so worth waiting for.
