I decided to put these 2 weeks together as not too much happened in week 35. Just the usual non sleeping and moaning from me.
Week 36 was however exciting as we had our final scan and found out the date of our planned section. I was so excited, this was the moment we had been waiting for for such a long time now. The scan was great however we didn’t see too much as baby decided to put its arm up over its face. Cheeky little Monkey!! The lady said baby was on the big side and weighed about 7lbs 8oz with still 3 weeks to go.
After the scan we met with the consultant and I was given 3 different dates of when I could have my elective section. How exciting we chose our baby’s birth day. That is unless I go into labour before hand. I will then be rushed in for an emergency section. The date is being kept a secret but you shall all find out soon enough
Week 36 my sleeping has got 100 times worse. I go to bed at 2300 and sometimes am still wide awake at 0400 I end up coming down to watch TV. I am then woken up by Little Man about 0800 that morning so I am mega tired.
36 Weeks Pregnant
Would love to see you all linking up. So Many of us coming to an end now. So many just starting off on the pregnancy journey too. All pregnancy posts welcome. xx
So as you all know my due date is 19th September 2014. we are now at 1st September, so sometimes between now and the 19th I’ll be having a planned section.
We know the date but are keeping it a secret so there is some sort of surprise for our friends and family of when baby arrives. The only people who know are my Mum and Dad as they will be looking after Little Man.
I previously had an emergency C-section and was really out of it not really knowing what was going on. This time however I will know everything and to say I’m scared is an understatement. Everything is worrying me but I know there is no other option or way out now. I know that although this is major surgery it is very safe especially being planned. I have a meeting at the hospital with a senior Midwife who went through all my previous birth notes. This made me feel a lot more at ease.
Lots of lovely people have told me their stories and they are all so positive and it really does make me feel a lot better. I’ve read so many other positive stories online and they all say how relaxed and lovely the experience is. This is all very easy to say after and I hope I am one of those people to give others reassurance once I’ve had my “Positive experience”
Not too much longer to wait now and I’ll let you all know once baby is here
This weeks pregnancy linky is now Live. Look forward to seeing you all link up. xx
At 36 weeks pregnant I was well ready to leave work. I had been ready for the last 3 weeks but wanted to work as far up to my due date as I could. My last couple of weeks were really hard, I was struggling to sit with my back and had to keep going to the toilet.
I had some lovely gifts from work for the baby and a lovely bunch of flowers and cards from my friends. Cant say I was sad to go though as I need the rest.
Well its all over now and I can relax at home and chill out for a couple of weeks before the baby arrives. Saying that thought the other half has this week off work so were off to Thomas Land and maybe Wicksteed park and the coast depending on weather.
WOW!!! Where has the last 3.5 years gone? Our Little Man starts Pre-school on 3rd September and I can’t believe it. I know it is still a year till he goes to propper school, however starting Pre-school is a massive next step.
He has been having visits already as the pre school is where his nursery is. When he goes to nursery he goes into Pre-school for a morning or afternoon. He will also be going 2 days a week now rather than just the one day.
I have to say whilst he has been at nursery he has learnt so much and comes home every week telling me new things he learnt. I cant wait to see how much more he learns from going to Pre-school.

This week has seen me struggling a lot. I have been having a lot of pains nothing major just ligaments stretching I think. My back has also been so bad sitting at work all day. I finally go on Mat leave on 22nd August and I can not wait. Sitting at work all day is really hard. I know its only 2 days a week but I wish I had finished a couple of weeks ago now.
This week We have built the cot, packed my hospital bag and got everything we need ready. I bought the best thing in the world this week. As I will be formula feeding My friend showed me her Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep machine. How many of you have seen one? OMG they are amazing and will save me SO much time. It will make every feed so much quicker than messing about boiling the kettle whilst baby is screaming for a bottle. Night feeds will take so much less time, I can not rave about this product enough.
This week my bump has dropped and is looking a lot lower than it was. Cant believe in only a couple of weeks I shall be classed as full term.
I am still craving these Duck wraps from Tesco. They are duck wrapped in rice a bit like sushi with Soy sauce. I am however thinking it is now the saltiness I am craving from the soy sauce. I seem to be craving a lot of other salty things.
I am starting to feel very tired again all the time now. I go to bed quite early however Cant sleep and end up getting really angry about not being able to sleep

Doesn’t seem like 2 minutes since I was writing my 32 week update last week.
I now have my bag all packet, Moses basket covers all washed and put back on the basket, Babies clothes washed ironed and put away, we are building the cot up and getting all the bedding out to air. The new buggy is at my Mum and Dads but we do have the car seat here at our house.
My sleep is only getting worse but whats annoying me at night most of all is my restless legs. Every night this has been happening to me and it is so frustrating. I end up getting so angry when all I want to do is sleep.
I had a Midwife appointment this week and had Protein in my urine sample and slightly high blood pressure, so they are keeping an eye on that each week now.
I will post my hospital bag post at some point this week and link it up when I’ve done it.
