I'm sitting here writing this update at 6am and at 39+3 weeks pregnant (Due Monday 22nd), I woke up at 5am today, I couldn't sleep. It's so hot outside and I'm feeling warmer from being so pregnant. I have had a constant ache in the bottom of my back for a couple of days now and am feeling so much pressure down below. For the past couple of days I've not been able to do much, asides from lay on the sofa. I'm feeling pretty rough and even nauseous and I wonder if this is my body's way of saying 'Slow down and conserve your energy for labour'. I keep hoping each day that today will be the day as I really do feel so ready to cross the finish line now a
nd meet my little boy.
