Thirty-Eight Weeks – So Close, Hopefully Not Far

Posted on

For the following post, sorry for too much information about my pregnancy lol.

I have less then two weeks to my due date. EDD (Estimated Due Date) is 7th June 2012 though I have a feeling that it is coming close!

For past few weeks I have been on and off losing my mucus plug, very strong braxton hicks to the point where I thought I was in labour. Yes I know mucus plug is only a indicator that labour can happen within the next couple weeks but does not tell you when exactly as some people say it takes weeks and some lucky people say days.

However, the past few days throughout the night and during day too been traveling to the toilet every 3-5 minutes to pee, which normally I do every 15 minutes (baby must be sitting even more on my bladder), baby has dropped further down, so difficult to walk with all the pressure pain due to baby being engaged and ready, bad lower back pains (which I haven’t had since the start of pregnancy) and early this morning I found that I have started to have the ‘bloody show’. All morning I have been having light cramps, now it changed to mild cramps and with bit of pain but it is bearable at this stage.

I am so ready! Josh and I have been waiting for so long! I am waiting for those big hard contractions to start. Well hopefully I have big hard contractions that way I know I am in labour. As I have heard stories about silent labour and expected mums having no clue that they are in labour till it is too late. I started having light contractions on and off yesterday, got so excited then it stopped and I was sad and emotional because I really want to meet our little one. I am happy and excited right now, I can feel that it is coming close! I shall keep you all updated, though don’t blame me if I take awhile. 🙂

Time At Baby And Kids Market

Over the weekend while waiting for the baby to hurry its way out. I decided to visit a ‘Baby and Kids Market’ which was at Rose Hill Racecourse at this time. This was a ‘Mum’s Big Day Out’ event which is a bigger then normal event.

I got Josh to wake up early and even though we got there a good ten to twenty minutes before it opened, there was already a line waiting to get in.
