Thats it I have hit 9 months pregnant and although the previous months of pregnancy saw an increase in pregnancy related issues like heartburn, tiredness, sickness and pains it would be fair to say this month has been the most excruciating month of my life.
Having been one of those tiny percentage of people who suffer with SPD even after baby was born and having lived with the pain for 5 years now, this month has been the hardest of my life.
My hips have been grinding and cracking and trapping the nerves in my spine everyday and sleep is almost non existent.
The school run has led to tears daily as I force myself behind the steering wheel to drive half the way to school as I can no long make the walk from home … However the final drag from the pub car park to the playground itself and back is nothing short of horrific.
I think having gone from super active and decorating the entire house from top to bottom a few months ago to this has hit me hard.
I know I am super lucky to reach this stage in my pregnancy as many would love to be here right now but through the pain its hard to feel anything other than resentful at times.
Hitting this formal 9 months mark really does mean that we are 9 days from our elective section and the end is so very much insight, so that is keeping me going.
The maternity clothing for the last couple of weeks have been super ill-fitting as I am have outgrown most of it but I am refusing to buy anymore at this stage of things. I am tending to hold tops down, trousers up and have now officially given up rolling my pants back up over bump .. they are now keeping my under bump company … I am now just thankful that at least I found the Bravado Bra when I reviewed them last month as they have been a godsend!
This month it has all been about the realities of our new arrivals appearance with sorting out where and with whom Joshua will be with at what time and when, along with me and my obsessive nesting I am and organising I am thinking that I am now ready for the section date and to finally meed our new little man!
I am finally nearly there ….. I can’t wait to see my babies face and meet him for the first time.
