Pregnancy Diaries – 34 Weeks #3

I’m getting increasingly nervous now. The fact that I have 6 weeks until my due date, but only 3 weeks until I’m classed as “term”. It’s scary. You’d think that I would be a pro at pregnancy and birth by now but I think the fact I only gave birth last year means that it’s all still so fresh in my brain. My worries aren’t “I don’t know what labour and birth feels like” sort of worries like they were with P2, but more the “oh my goodness it’s going to hurt!”

I also feel anxious about the plans. Where we’ll be when the time comes, where and what will happen to the girls. I’ve discussed it all over and over and over and over again with my hubby and my MiL but it’s just not sinking in. My hospital bag is very nearly ready, it just needs some newborn vests put in there and it’s sorted. I think. But it suddenly dawned on me that I actually need to pack an overnight/day bag for both the girls. With P2 we were living with my Mum so it was simple, I woke her up and P1 woke up that morning none the wiser with all her belongings with her.

I’m a rubbish pregnant person. I have mood swings and tiredness, I’m walking around like an old person due to my various body parts feeling horrible pains. After a bit of loving I ended up in agony the whole night, unable to sleep and believing I was in labour. My hubby woke up to me crying my eyes out this morning. I was terrified and exhausted. I think it was a case of Braxton Hicks.

I feel so unprepared yet completely prepared. We have everything we need for a baby as such, I have boobies, we have nappies, we have a Moses basket and a sling. But we have a serious lack of newborn clothes that is really really worrying me. P3 currently has two sleepsuits, one coat and three sleeping bags. I’m just praying that if we receive any gifts for her it’ll be newborn sized clothing because I can’t see us topping up in the next three to six weeks!!

Really having third baby jitters over here. Reassurance needed!!

Siblings 2021 – June

June has been quite the emotional rollercoaster. One moment I’m flying high above the clouds …


  1. Thanks for the reminder, Ive been panicking about my hospital and baby hospital bag after this weeks drama and had totally forgotten about stuff for the two monkeys! I have the jitters too, so sorry not much help, but you’re not alone xx

  2. It will be FINE! Deep breaths – you can do this. We only got properly organised the last week or so and I never thought we’d get there, but we did. Relax and try to stay calm – things will be ok, I promise! x

  3. Oh my goodness. I never thought about packing stuff for the others, or at least making sure stuff is ready for them too. Thanks for reminding me. You’re looking fab as always! x x x

  4. I’m THE worst pregnant person in the world so don’t worry 🙂

  5. Just remember they can only wear one outfit at a time! You sound far far more organised than I was at a similar stage too – and if things go a little awry on the childcare front it really won’t matter in the long run, and everyone will be trying to make it work 🙂

    Aww you really are having the jitters! I’m not sure I can say much to reassure you (being only on my 2nd pregnancy and at 30 wks) but I am sure you will be fine. You will no doubt get newborn clothes as gifts and I am sure what you have will be enough for those first days. I can understand the worries over packing backs for the older 2 girls as I hadn’t really thought about that for Monkey but I think I may get my parents to come here so he has everything he needs, hadn’t thought about that much yet so thank you! Hope you feel a bit better soon! xx #blogbumpclub

      My MiL has a younger son too. So we’ll be the ones knocking on the door at all hours 😉 I need to make sure I have school I uniform & a change of clothes just for P1. It’s all a nightmare. My NiL has given us a voucher to spend in Tesco… I’m heading there this morning.

  7. Maybe try to focus pampering and taking care of your self. It must be hard to do that with kids around but thought I would mention as that is what I try to focus on when I feel anxious and need to relax. Take care of yourself!xx
