39 Weeks

I am so very very pregnant! That's all I really have to say about that... I'm thrilled that I got to experience pregnancy a second time around and am quite ready to have this baby thank you very much.

I've been trying out a few old wives tales to try and get things moving...

On Saturday my sister and I did a whole lot of walking at the Finders Keepers markets in Brisbane. Hands down best markets I have ever been too! There were so many amazingly talented designers and creators there. I picked up a print each for the boys' rooms from etsy seller Penelope and Pip.





















The owl one that I purchased is a little bit different to this one and is for Max's room. When I showed it too him he said, 'that's so funny Mumma, owls don't wear hats' and then started to laugh. So cute!! When I asked for it back he refused to give it to me saying that it was his now :).

I also picked up this adorable monster bib from Columbian trio Amor Amor. I can't wait to get creative and colour it in!


While we were at the markets I also ate the best paella I've ever tasted and a ridiculously decadent strawberry sundae.

I didn't go into labour though...

On Sunday we had Max's bff and her parents over for lunch. I post about the two of them regularly (here and here most recently) and they really are just the cutest pair on the planet!





By that evening I was completely over being pregnant and soooooo uncomfortable so we tried out a few more 'labour inducing techniques', we went for a walk and I ate a really spicy indian curry (which was dumb because I hate spicy food).

I woke up this morning still very very pregnant and have resigned myself to the fact that the baby will probably come out when it's ready regardless of what I do...

Although if you have any suggestions for me I'm all ears.....

  1. Those last weeks are the pits hey, especially when it's hot. I sent the last three weeks before I had Mia doing nothing but sitting on one of those fitness balls (some call them swiss balls I think) and two days before she was born I was already 3cms dilated. Not sure if that was coz of the fitball or I just had a really co-operative cervix but it's worth a try. Helps to keep bubs in good position too I'm told.

    Im bit the opposite at the moment as im so nervous, so telling her to just stay in my belly for a little bit longer hehe.
    She is engaged which is a good sign, but still not experiencing the pre labour cramps.

  5. I never had any luck with coaxing my babes into delivery before they were ready but think trying methods at least makes us feel like we're trying. You're on the home stretch either way! Woo hoooo! x
