How far along:  33 weeks + 1 day

Days until due date: 47 days 

Baby's development: Our baby boy is now about the size of a pineapple! Eeeesh! He weighs a little over 4 pounds and measures just over 17 inches. The bones in his skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, meaning it's easier for his journey into the world! Thankfully.

My bump: Big, round and firm. And in the way most of the time. 

Stretch marks? Still none yet! Wooo!! I don't think i've ever been so moisturised in my life. 

Cravings: Anything sweet. Anything at all. 

Sleep: Super excitingly our new mattress arrived today so i'm hoping that my sleep will get a little better because of that. No more rolling in towards the middle of the bed for us. 

Best moment this week: I suppose the best moment of the past few weeks would be attending our Hypnobirthing Workshop and starting our NCT classes. I'm such a nerd when it comes to learning so having all this new information to sink my teeth into is awesome. The people in my NCT group are really lovely too so here's to hoping that we make some new friends! 

Other highlights include living in the most beautiful place...

Worst moment this week: Unfortunately my hips have started to really ache which sucks. I've been doing some gentle stretches and am just going to keep an eye on things for now. 

Miss anything? Life before relentless heartburn. 

Mood: Hmmm.... things have been VERY up and down lately. My hormones have certainly been a challenge. I'm talking hours and hours spent crying uncontrollably here, not just a little cry here and there! Thankfully it seems that the worst of it has passed so here's to keeping my head up and my heart strong.
