The Mummy Diaries: 38 Week Update!!

38 Weeks! I honestly never envisioned going past 37 but here we are and with no signs of him showing his face anytime soon either, I guess he’s all warm and cosy in there!

I had a midwife appointment on the 25th, it was just your usual run of the mill appointment, nothing eventful happened, she took my blood pressure, checked my pee sample, felt for baby and listened to his heartbeat, everything is perfect so all is good on that front, he is also now 3/5ths engaged, which really doesn’t mean all that much cause he was the same 4 weeks ago and then decided to move out of my pelvis, which is annoying but ah well, the braxton hicks contractions have now all but stopped too so I am pretty positive this is going to be a long wait!

He is just as wriggly as ever which is wonderful, I really am going to miss feeling his little kicks inside of me when he’s finally here, but, I am so excited to meet him!
According to Ovia this week he is the same size as a Ukulele, weighs roughly 7lbs and is about 19 and a half inches long! lets hope he doesn’t get too much bigger than that! also apparently if he has hair it has a colour by now and his eye colour is also coming in! although I am thinking he will have lovely blue eyes because both me and Arran have blue eyes, I do hope he has lots of dark hair though, but thats not something you see very often, dark hair and blue eyes, but who knows we shall see, I’m sure he will look utterly adorable whatever he looks like!

Arran starts his paternity leave this week! I can’t wait, its going to be so nice to have him around for a whole 3 weeks, we just gotta hope that baby decides to show up in good time so that Arran gets to spend as much time with him as possible!

Here we go into 39 weeks! I might start taking bets on when he will arrive, feel free to leave your guess in the comments!

P.s. my appetite is out of control… please tell me this is a sign!
