So now that I am 5 days over what is classed as term I really do feel that I spend every day waiting. Waiting for a contraction, waiting for my waters to break…waiting for some thing. At this point in my last pregnancy my waters had gone and I had given birth to my gorgeous girl… So I have NEVER been this pregnant before. I don’t feel too enormous, I’ve managed to avoid most of the swelling this time and although my bump is pretty darn big the rest of me is ok but I feel rubbish. My head hurts, my eyes hurt and I have cracked, sore lips… Attractive huh?
I think the baby is draining every last bit of goodness from me and well I don’t mind her having it all but the downside is I feel awful.
Distraction techniques are needed. I need to be busy all the time or it will drive me crazy.
Yesterday afternoon we went to a lovely seaside village near to us for for the most divine ice cream and then took Izzy to an old amusement arcade and played on all the rides.. It made the day brighter.
I can see a rainbow…
Today we plan to go and see Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs 2! Izzy loves the cinema and I’m trying to make these last few weeks of being an only child as much fun as possible! Also I get to sit down.
What did you do in your final weeks of pregnancy? How did you pass the time and what were your first signs of impending labour?
