Week 37 of Pregnancy

Baby boy is now 50cm long and weighs around 6.5lbs (2.9kg) and is due in 3 weeks. He is about the size of a winter melon, which I have never heard of to be honest. 

I don't think baby has engaged yet because this week I have been uncomfortable and on occasion breathless while just sitting still. Baby's movements are much bigger but he is still wiggling loads. I keep getting kicked in the ribs but I don't mind too much. 

My skin has cleared up loads so I'm chuffed about that, maybe it was just my own fault for eating loads of rubbish food over Christmas. My hips and lower back are starting to ache lots and I'm getting a bit grumpy about being pregnant now. I definitely won't miss constant heartburn, aches, toilet trips every 2 seconds and not being able to get around very easily. It will also be nice not to have to be so careful about what I am eating, to be honest I'm craving cheese and red wine and can't wait to get stuck in! Other than being mardy there is nothing really to report this week so I'll keep this one short and sweet. I'm at the midwife next week so I'll perhaps have more to share then x
