This week has not been kind to me at all. I’m really starting to feel the effects of pregnancy now it’s getting towards the end. I’m just keeping my spirits high by doing fuller faces of make up and making more of an effort with myself and thinking about how it will all be worth it when she finally decides to make her arrival. I’m still trying to embrace everything to the max as I do feel amazing about the process my body has been through and will continue to go through for the next five weeks.
It’s crazy to think that in 5 weeks it will be my due date and the sensation of feeling her moving in my belly won’t happen anymore. It’s hit me that my bump will go and I won’t be pregnant anymore. I began reflecting over the last 35 weeks and all the changes that my body has gone through, and what the baby has been through too. I consider myself lucky to have only experienced severe morning sickness and now being in extreme pain – all normal pregnancy things – as I know a few people that have experienced scares throughout their pregnancies. My body hasn’t let me down once, all my tests have come back normal and she’s had a strong heartbeat the whole time. I’m really going to miss being able to feel her moving around and miss my bump when I’ve given birth.
Here’s an image of my bump this week. I was having a good confidence day, and I haven’t shared any bump photos publicly so I thought I’d show you guys how my 34+5 week bump looked.
