Pregnancy Diaries – 35 Weeks #3

I’m feeling big now. Really big and really heavy. Everything seems to be pulling downwards. I get a lot of pressure and discomfort in my lower bump which the midwife said is due to the fact P3 has been snuggled low in my pelvis pretty much the whole time, especially now.

I’ve managed to pack the girls bags now and have completed the hospital bag except for snacks. I think. Ultimately, all I need is my vagina, the baby and my hubby and I’m sure we’ll be fine during birth. I’m still feeling very anxious. I’m not sure whether it’s the labour, the birth or the after-math that’s making me feel so terrified.

I’m definitely at the stage where I want this all over now. The pain and tiredness of pregnancy has really been a strain third time round and I’m feeling incapable. I’ll be “full term” in two weeks which is exciting and nerve racking. Although I think I’ve been experiencing my mucous plug coming away since yesterday, but I’m unsure as it’s different to what I’ve had before. How do I know?

I went out last weekend and grabbed a few newborn bits so that’s made me feel a bit more content. I just feel like there’s so little time left now but it all seems a little unreal and close too.

Siblings 2021 – June

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


  1. I remember all too well being where you are. I never knew what to think of discharge, it was always changing. Hopefully baby will hang in for a few more weeks and you can (try) to get some rest. Good luck, mama!! And, congratulations!!

      To be honest, I’m thinking it was just stupid increased discharge. It’s horrible. I’m so uncomfortable.

      • I’m so sorry! I wish I could offer something that would make you feel better. The only time I got any relief was if I sat in our recliner chair w feet propped up. I hope these next few weeks fly by for you.

  2. I know how you feel, the last weeks are so uncomfortable and yet- for me- I have never wanted them to end. And always look back on this time so so fondly. I know that doesn’t help. You are inspiring me to get organised and stay strong though, so thank you. And I hope it isn’t too much longer for you x x x

  3. It’s scary how quickly the time creeps up isn’t it?! Mind you, saying that it’s also pretty exciting. Hope you manage to get some much needed rest in between the busy periods. Sounds to me like you might not have to wait until 40 weeks or 40 weeks + to meet your baby if things are already starting to happen! x

      I’m unsure whether it was my show or not really, or just the horrible increased discharge of pregnancy. Yuck!
