34 Week Update

How far along?  34 weeks & 2 days

Total weight gain:  I don’t think I look particularly bigger this week and my bump measures 2cm under but that is still fine as Scott and I aren’t big people so the bump isn’t likely to be huge!
Maternity clothes?  Nothing new at all and true to my word I have lived in maternity leggings and comfy tees all week!
This doesn’t really count as maternity clothing but I have been wearing a Nexcare Maternity Support Belt* whilst decorating at the new house which has been incredible! I will be posting a review this week so stay tuned if you are interested in finding out more about it
Stretch marks? Still nada! Continuing to use Palmers Original Formula Cocoa Butter and the Mama Mio Boob Tube  (review here) !
Sleep:  Sleep has been rare again and it’s really taken its toll on me I am shattered and poorly!!
Best moment this week: I will summarise this with a photo..

Yes that’s right we got the keys for our new house and work started on it the minute we got in there!!! Pretty much the whole downstairs is being renovated and Harry’s room is almost complete, painting wise! We have done so much in just a few days it’s amazing – and exhausting
See my previous post if you want to see some photos of the house before any work has been done
Worst moment this week:  I went down with tonsilitus on my first day of maternity leave!! Very inconvienent when trying to decorate a new house! I have felt pretty rotten but just worked through it! The tonsilitis then turned into a full on cold/flu and I finally gave in on Sunday and spent a whole day in bed feeling sorry for myself
Miss anything?  Again I am missing my sleep! Just one blissful night would be lovely!!
Movement: Harry has turned!! I didn’t even realise he had as my ribs hurt so much still and there was a big round hard thing sticking out but this time it wasn’t his head it was his bony bottom! I am so so happy he has managed to turn himself and I am praying he stays there!!! Good boy Hazza (mummy’s sorry for shouting at you!)
Food cravings:  No cravings this week at all, I’ve been quite off food with being poorly
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope, nothing
Gender: Boy!!

Labour signs: None and no more Braxton hicks.. I don’t think my bump has really ‘dropped’ yet either!

Symptoms:  Obviously getting sick has been the worst thing this week!
The rib pain is still really sore at night but is a lot better during the day which has to be down to not sitting at a desk! I have been on the move so much this week with decorating our house and also bouncing around on an excercise ball!
I’ve had awful heartburn again but I have been eating so much crap due to the move so I am really not helping that at all!
Belly button in or out?  Flat and half out.. Weird!
Happy or moody most of the time?  Even though I have been ifeeling so rough I am SO happy!!!!!!!!!!!
Looking forward to: Building Harry’s nursery furniture and putting everything in its place in his room.. I will be dedicating a picture heavy post when it’s finished!!
Bump: I apologize for the horrendous paint covered outfit and miserable tired face!!!

For some reason I like to take photos of myself doing puffer fish impressions..

    You look great!! I also use Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula. So far I like it, but I feel like a walking chocolate bar šŸ™‚

    Such good news Harry has turned! Hopefully he'll stay that way for you šŸ™‚ as he gets bigger it'll definitely make it trickier for him to turn, fingers crossed! Looking forward to seeing your house updates šŸ™‚ xx
