37 week bumpdate

How far along:  37 weeks + 3 days 

My bump: 

My bump has grown at an alarming rate! For such a slow starter the baby has really caught over time. 
Every time I was examined by the doctor and midwives they all agreed I was breach by the irregular shape of my bump. After a recent ultrasound both my husband and doctor were shocked to discover I was not breach but the baby was two weeks too big for dates! 

This obviously came as a bit of shock to us as I had always looked quite small. Thankfully the growth scan showed that baby is perfectly healthy! The consultant suggested an early induction to ensure baby hasn't grown to big for delivery! I'm back on Friday to finalise all the details! 

Stretch marks? Still none! I am pedantic at layer on layer of oils. As I'm out of the Secret Saviours I'm mostly using the Clarins Body Tonic.

Sleep: Sleep still isn't great (big baby maybe explains some of this!!) but I'm learning to deal with it. A friend bought me some herbal sleep tea which is working wonders. Sleeping with three pillows is helping. 

Symptoms: Tiredness and shortness of breath

Miss anything? Sleep and having energy!

Maternity clothes: Still no. 

Gender: Still unknown. I am tempted to find out but it is so close so I think I can wait!

Belly button in/out: Out!!

Wedding Rings on/off: On!

Mood: Really excited now! The 3D scan we got from the last ultrasound made it so real. I can't wait to meet our creation. The bags are packed and ready to go!
