39 Weeks Update

Well here I am...I hoped to not be writing this but life; labour in particular, cannot be planned that much. I wish this weeks was a positive update, but unfortunately it'll probably rightly so come across as pretty whingey.

39+2 weeks - bump has since dropped a lot lower! | Thor shouting at baby girl to come out - I feel her pain..
How far along? 40 weeks exactly.
Total weight gain: 18.5lbs.
Maternity clothes? No new ones but even my maternity clothes are tight now! 
Stretch marks? Lots.
Sleep: Slightly better this week actually, a blessing in disguise.
Best moment this week: We had my husbands parents come to visit us from back home (200 miles away) which was lovely! Also, knowing it's only a matter of days until we meet our princess finally.
Miss anything? Having no bump which sounds terrible, but generally just bending down, laying on my stomach and walking without pain.
Food cravings: Thai food! I've been thinking about it constantly. Ice is still very much on the menu too!
1 week ago when I hoped she'd be here by today. | A new book I picked up from Annabel Karmel. I've heard great things about this weaning book for months to come!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope, I feel great.
Gender: Girl!
Labour signs: Still tons of Braxton Hicks but mainly the worst pain this week has to be the lightning pains. Ouch! I've had to really stop and clutch on to things when the sharp, lightning sensation strikes. 
Symptoms: The same as last week, tons of lightning, Braxton Hicks, stretching pains, general uncomfortableness and huge mood swings!
Belly button in or out? Out.
Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty moody this week sadly :( I just want her here now!
Looking forward to: More signs our princess is coming.

So that's my 39 week update. Please keep your fingers crossed that our baby girl comes very soon and as always, keep your eyes peeled on my Instagram and Twitter pages for more regular updates!
