I’m in agony today. I’m not sleeping thanks to P2, who seems to think from 1-4am is the time to be completely unsettled and I’m up every 15-30minutes resettling her. It’s exhausting. Plus it seems that as soon as it turns 7pm I get real pressure in my lower bump which stays there until morning causing general laying down in bed to be so uncomfy.
I didn’t actually think my back pain could get any worse but it is and has. Especially today. Every tiny bit of pressure I place on my leg is absolutely killing me. It feels like my hips are made from jelly with needles attached.
My bump has definitely dropped and I’m feeling movements less frequently. I don’t know whether to be worried or not. I was up the hospital so much with P2 and have managed to stay out so far. She’s still moving a lot but it’s more of a turn or a slight nudge than a kick.
I have this awful feeling that my waters are going to break during the school run, more specifically on the playground, surrounding by others that have been through what I’m going through but not close friends where I won’t feel embarrassed by it. Plenty of people have asked how far along I am, when I tell them nearly 37 weeks they all gasp and say “any minute”.
I’m certainly a ticking time bomb now that I’m 37 weeks!! 37. Thirty seven!!!!!!!!!
