"I'm so ready for this baby to come"

"I'm so ready for this baby to come"
A phrase the majority of women utter in the last 2 weeks of pregnancy. 

I'm starting to feel this way now. Due in 2 days with no end in sight. 
An unsuccessful stretch and sweep, reduced movements and a growth scan in the last week are telling me that although I may be ready for this but baby isn't as willing to leave her comfortable resting spot! 
These hormones are getting the best of me too. I sit and cry at everything and anything. In the last couple of days, I've cried because the water in the bath went cold after I'd been sat in it for over an hour, I've cried because Ross went to work and I didn't want to be alone (the girls had a sleepover at grandmas house!), I've cried because the bread went stale and I wanted some toast... I've cried at everything. Somethings I'm not even sure the reason I cried! 

Although everything has been overwhelming and I want to meet my 3rd little princess, I don't want this pregnancy to end! This shall be my final pregnancy, my final baby. I don't want to forget any of the things I'm feeling right now. I don't want to take this for granted! 

I have my heart set on the perfect water birth at my local hospital. Something that I've always wanted to do but never managed for one reason or another. 
The growth scan seems to think that this baby will be a big baby. Atleast 2lb bigger than either of my other 2. I'm really hoping this isn't the case. The thought of a close to 9lb baby scares the living day lights out of me! 

I have another stretch and sweep on Monday (40+4) so I'm hoping that gives me the kick start I need for this baby to come if she hasn't already appeared by this point. 

Here's to bouncing on the gym ball!


  1. Not long to go now. It's great that you don't want the pregnancy to end, I must admit I couldn't wait for it to be over. Just felt very uncomfortable at the end

    1. I'm definitely feeling uncomfortable, I just don't feel like I'm ready to have 2 under 1! And a 3 year old.

      Joys of pregnancy ey?

  2. Aw, hang in there! I remember feeling the same way toward the end of my last pregnancy. I wanted the baby to arrive yet I wanted her to stay inside so I could remember what it was like...Best wishes for a happy and healthy delivery!!

    1. Thank you!
      Due tomorrow and becoming impatient!
      It's a bitter sweet feeling wanting baby to come but stay at the same time!
