39 weeks TODAY. Wow. We are nearly there. As much as I've been moaning about how slowly this last part of pregnancy has been going, (which I do truly apologise to my friends and family for, I've been moaning a lot!!!) it is quite surreal to think I'm in my 39th week out of 40! Where did it go?!
Looking back from when I first found out I was pregnant to now, I do feel like on the whole I've had a pretty darn good pregnancy journey. Even though I've had low moments, they've been no where near as bad as I expected! However saying that, at the same time I don't think I really knew what to expect.. you read about all the changes physically and hormonally that happen to you during pregnancy, but there's nothing that can quite prepare you for what your body is about to go through! And even then, it's totally different for every women!
I thought back through every stage of the last 40 weeks, and picked out my highs and my lows of my pregnancy. (Obviously this is MY personal highs and lows, and it won't go for every women out there!) this is an insight into my journey and what I have experienced...
My 5 pregnancy lows
My 5 pregnancy highs
I am amazed at my body. And proud in a way. At the fact I have carried and grown a human being, just mind-blowingly wow! Especially for me personally, after some tough illnesses and struggles my body has had to go through in my life.. I had no idea how my body would cope being pregnant. I guess the fact that I'm young, fit, healthy my body is in its prime for reproduction! That's partly why Josh and I wanted children now, while our bodies are perfect baby producing machines! We didn't want to wait till we were 30+ and luckily we are in a career where we don't need to wait for us to 'work our way up the ladder'. Having a family was our priority, and I am proud my little body has made it this far without any serious problems or complications.
Yes, 100% I would love to be pregnant again. There are tough times, but it is so so worth it, and when the time is right, I know I would do it again in a heartbeat! Now little madam... When are you going to make an appearance into the world?! We can't wait to meet you!
