36 Down

I’ve reached 36 weeks.
36!!
Only 4 weeks to go until Flump is due to arrive.
Of course this means Flump could come any time from right now all the way up until April 5th. (please sooner rather than later Flump!)

I’ve been cramping, having back ache and serious amounts of pressure against my pelvis since Tuesday, not to mention a few other disgusting things, all which according to the midwives signify my body is starting to change and prepare for labour.

All I am literally waiting for is my waters to break and my cervix to begin effacing and dilating. Which could happen in a few days or 2 weeks, but likely not much longer, although who actually knows these things. Babies arrive when they’re ready.

I had my final growth scan today, thankfully baby is growing along quite nicely and is average. Although his/her legs are short (like Mamas) and therefore it’s unlikely that baby has the running gene that the rest of the Masters clan seem to have.

Poor sonographer was having some issues measuring babies head as it was so very low into my pelvis (great sign!)

Flump is currently head down into my pelvis, back running up my right side, bum tucked under my right rib and legs and 1 hand tucked up under my left rib.

I’m thinking Flump may become a gymnast. It’s clearly no wonder I have a squirmy baby, because that position cannot be comfortable.

Also baby has chubby cheeks and those who know me know that I absolutely adore chubby baby cheeks.

Flump isn’t here yet and already I am absolutely unbelievable undone by his/her chubby cheeks.
