Pregnancy Update Week 37 – Me Time

Hi D Ho and welcome to my pregnancy update for week 37, at this stage baby weighs about 6 & 1/3 of Lbs (or maybe bigger – baby has always been measuring a bit bigger than their dates after all Dear Husband is 6 foot 2), is about 19 inches long and about the size of swiss chard or a winter melon if you know what either of those things are 🙂

Pregnancy Update Week 36 -DIY Co-Sleeping with Ikea!

Hi D Ho and welcome to my pregnancy update for week 36. At this stage baby weighs about 6 Lbs and is about the size of a head of romaine lettuce. Baby must be growing plenty of hair because a bottle of gaviscon has become a permeant feature in my handbag along with another huge bottle beside my bed that I’m working my way through nicely. I had a little bit of heartburn with little man but nothing compared to this pregnancy. Little man had a lot of hair when he was born so I’m slightly worried that I might give birth to a gorilla this time 🙂

Pregnancy Update Week 35 – Breastfeeding 101

Hi D Ho and welcome to my pregnancy update for week 35. This week baby is a about one and a half foot long (getting big) and weighs about 5 1/4 pounds – about the size of a honeydew melon. I can really feel just how big baby is now, its like having a sack of potatoes stuck to your tummy that you have to bend over whenever you need to try and reach for anything (like my toes 🙂 but luckily I can still see them! ).

Pregnancy Update Week 34 – Finishing Up

Hi D Ho and welcome to my week 34 pregnancy update (overdue but I’m catching up on my updates now – promise 🙂). At 34 weeks baby baby weighs about 4 3/4 pounds – about the size of a cantaloupe melon and is almost 18 inches long. The photos comparing my first and second pregnancy baby bumps are really starting to show the differences now. Would you believe I started this pregnancy slightly heavier than I did my first?

Pregnancy Update Week 33 – Breech Baby?

Hi D Ho and welcome to my very late pregnancy update for week 33. I’m now 35 weeks pregnant but have been so exhausted the last few weeks that I’m playing catch up on my updates so apologies for the late posts. So at 33 weeks baby is the size of a pineapple and weighs about 4Lbs.

I’ve kept up my regular exercise – currently bootcamp twice week and pregnancy pilates once a week in the hope of it keeping me fit and giving me back some energy. I’m starting to see the benefits of it now – at 33 weeks with bump #1 I had put on 32 Lbs while at this stage with bump #2 Ive only put on 16 Lbs – exactly half my original weight gain at this point!
