I thought I'd kickstart February with a pregnancy update for you guys. I've been really slacking with these updates, actually with blogging full stop. But I feel that a huge part of this is because January saw me just completely exhausted with my pregnancy and it was by far one of the toughest months that I've been through so far. In January I had just gone into my third trimester and not only did I suffer with complete exhaustion but I was also diagnosed with Anaemia, so I just had no energy levels whatsoever. Honestly it's so hard tying to find the words to decribe just how tired and exhausted I was feeling, I've never felt anything like it in my life. I had to take some time out of work and sadly some time away from my blog. I'm having to take three iron tablets a day to help me with my anaemia and I'm trying to get as much rest as I can, so I feel a good 70% better. I think it also helps that I'm finish work for a year in a weeks time and I am literally counting down the days. It's such a crazy thought that I can't get my head around.... No more work for a YEAR! 

As far as bump and baby go there is so much to report back and as you can see from the pictures, little man has gotten so big; He is pilling on the pounds. As amazing as it is to see him grow, it also terrifies me! I mean I have to push him out and with six and half weeks before his due date I just keep thinking he can't get any bigger, can he? My midwife has already broken the news that I can which just makes me feel more anxious as the due date gets closer. Although I am really excited to meet him, see him and hold him. I think the whole labour thing is bitter sweet, I'm just trying to get my head around that it is actually going to happen and soon. 

How far along? Today I am 33 weeks and 5 days. 

Movement? My little boy is already like me in the fact that he is the biggest fidget bum ever. In the last couple of weeks his movements have been non stop and I am constantly seeing and feeling him have a good wiggle around. I have a feeling that he has really long legs as I'm constantly seeing a foot or leg pop out. As wonderful as it is being able to see him move underneath my skin, it can be really uncomfortable at times, so much so that I tickle my skin to make him pop his feet back in and he responds. I just love our little moments like this.

Food Cravings? There hasn't been anything in particular that I've been craving other than my need for sparkling water still. I probably drink about 2 litres of it a day which is just a crazy amount of sparkle. But at least I'm keeping myself hydrated and my skin has been thanking me for it.

Sleep? Sleeping has been a right nightmare. Sometimes its so bad that I actually dread going to bed at night as I just know that its such a struggle to get comfortable. It's really horrible because as tired as I am, I take forever to drift off. Not to mention I am constantly getting up through the night to go to the toilet which is really frustrating. I think my body is definitely preparing me for a lot of interrupted sleep when baby arrives because I can't remember the last time I slept the whole way through the night,

Gender? Little man is still very much a little man. In December I had to go back from a growth scan and the nurse confirmed that he is definitely a little boy. 

Symptoms? I mentioned my anaemia at the beginning of this post and this is the one symptom that I've really been struggling with. Tiredness is such a killer and its a tiredness that I've never experienced before. Finding any motivation at all is such a struggle.

Stretch Marks? No, I've been oiling up non stop and so far I can't see any!

Belly button in or out? It's finally popped all the way out.

Looking forward to? It has to be finishing work for good. I had to bring my maternity leave forward as I've just really struggled with work and now the finish line is finally in sight. It will be so nice just to have a few weeks to myself before little man arrives.

When I finish work I plan on getting a lot more pregnancy related posts up as theres so many other bits that I want to talk about. If you have any questions please let me know in the comments below. 

Lots of Love
