34 Week Pregnancy Update

18th January 2015
Today I am 35 weeks + 1 day into my pregnancy journey and have 34 days to go!
I start my last but one week in work tomorrow, exciting! I have my work leaving do this Friday and my baby shower with friends on Sunday so have a lot to look forward to next weekend. 
I’m back to going to the toilet a lot, this combined with the fact that I’m not getting the pains in my right hand side as much now make me think that baby has shifted a little. 
Things are starting to get uncomfortable now, I feel as though I am running out of space. Baby seems to be fighting my ribs for space at the moment, sitting up straight helps a little but if I sit up real straight for too long my back aches, can’t win! 
Baby has started kicking things off my stomach now which is quite funny, I’ll be trying to read in bed on my iPad and it is bouncing around due to baby kicking it! 
My belly button hasn’t protruded out yet and I have no obvious Linea Nigra so I am hoping that these two will stay away. 
I’ve stayed the same weight again which means that I have still only put on 2lbs. I mentioned this to the midwife at my parent craft class as I’m a little concerned, I thought that I should be putting on at least 2lbs a week now as baby is growing. She said that it was nothing to be concerned about, when my bump is being measured it is showing as growing so it just means that I am loosing weight and baby is putting on weight. I will mention this again at my midwife appointment on Wednesday as it is nice to have a second opinion. 
My bump at 35 weeks, I’ve really slowed down growing now, I seem to have got big really quickly and now not a lot is changing My new favourite combination, pancakes, Maltesers spread & banana delicious melt in the middle chocolate puddings from the Co-op.
Spencer bought BN biscuits home the other day, I couldn’t help but sing the song! I had an envelope in the bedroom, Bob obviously had to get in it and attack us every time we walked past him Not sure what to think of the toffee Kit Kats, I prefer good old chocolate beef stew in the slow cooker.
