34 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #2



Baby
At this gestation the baby is estimated to be around 18 inches long and weighs roughly 4.75lb. She's been busy putting on weight and maturing her lungs ready for the outside world. I had my 34 week midwife appointment last week and she was measuring big as you can see from the photo below. I don't really think these measurements are often accurate as Noah measured huge all the way through and when he was born he weighed a dainty 7lb 2oz. I do however think she will weigh more than Noah did and I'm guessing around the 8lb mark. I suppose it all depends on when she decides to be born! I still think she will come slightly early, we shall have to wait and see!

Oh my word, I'm shattered. I feel like I could sleep for an entire month. Noah hasn't been sleeping very well and with being well into my third trimester I'm just exhausted all the time. I remember complaining about being tired when I was expecting Noah and back then I could just nap whenever I wanted to, when I wasn't at work of course. It also takes me a long time to switch off at night, I struggle to get comfortable and as soon as I lay down my indigestion and heartburn flare up. I guess this is good practice for how tired I will be when she arrives, although I really would just love a good night sleep before she does! I've started getting headaches again but I think that's mainly down to the lack of sleep. My pelvic pain hasn't been as bad lately but I feel so stiff and sore at the moment. I still struggle to walk when I've been sat down or led down for a while and tend to walk in a hobble! My bump is still quite big but people keep mentioning how I look like I've dropped lately, hopefully this is a sign that she won't keep us waiting too long!

As much as I love pregnancy (warts and all - literally!) I feel like I'm at the stage now where I'm looking for that finish line. I'm so excited to meeting her and I can't wait to start this new chapter in our lives. Once she's born our little family will be complete. 

See you next week!

  2. Bump does look good. Seems your daughter is likely to be a healthy weight. Will be nice to see photos of her once she is born. Best Wishes.

  7. There is a wide range of conference rooms available for hire, which are both practical for smaller groups and for larger groups. Most of the meeting space San Francisco have modern office furniture in them, providing comfort and plenty of space.
