40 Weeks Pregnant!

So here I am still large, uncomfortable and 40 weeks pregnant! I really didn’t think I would make it this far and thought my pregnancy would end at around 38 weeks, but it seems baby de Metz doesn’t want to move from that warm comfy place. I’m not going to sit here and complain because I’m happy my baby is fully developed and healthy but boy it’s so uncomfortable, from the baby’s movements to walking, there isn’t much I can do apart from stay at home hoping for my waters to break.
I had a 40 week midwife appointment yesterday and was hoping for a sweep, which she quickly dismissed and said she wouldn’t intervene until around 41 weeks and if all else fails I’ll be induced on Easter Sunday. I’m really hoping I don’t have to be induced and my baby decides to come well before then.
Maybe my next post will be a birth announcement instead of a 41 week preggo update?! One can only hope so..

    They wouldn't sweep me at 40 weeks either.

    I do think a late baby = a happier baby though 😉 They're fatter and more content which REALLY helps! x
