34 weeks

I can’t quite believe that I’m writing that – we’re at 34 weeks!! 🙂

I’m incredibly happy to have reached this milestone. From what I’ve read, if baby came along now he/she would have a great chance of doing well, with a bit of medical assistance, which is just amazing to me. It was almost 10 weeks ago that we were told that baby might be coming early and it’s been a long old time since then – taking it easy, hoping, waiting – and now here we are. I’m so very grateful to have got this far.

I mentioned in my last post that at our 31 week scan baby’s little legs hadn’t grown as much as usual. We had another scan at 33 weeks and they were still a bit short, but had grown more than before. Baby was weighing in at 4lbs 9oz and was in the 36th percentile and the sonographer said everything looked good. My consultant is on holiday until Monday, so I’ll see her then and see what she thinks. I have another scan on 18th if baby is still cooking then, so we’ll see how that goes. 

I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but my sister in law is also pregnant and is 6 weeks ahead of me, so she is due anytime now. It’s her second baby and she had a difficult birth with her first, so she’s understandably very worried about this one. I’m so excited for her and to have a little newborn around, just hoping that she has a better experience this time around.

So for now I’ll keep plodding on. I’m still amazed to have got this far and am so very grateful.

    • Thank you, that’s really kind 🙂 I still can’t quite believe we’ve made it this far, just hoping for a few more weeks of cooking and then smooth sailing birth wise. It’s all very surreal but trying to enjoy it and stay positive. So happy for you guys and little Nora too, I’ve followed your blog for as long as ive written mine and it’s so wonderful to see that you got your happy ending 🙂 lots of love xxx


  1. Glad things are still going well and baby is still sitting tight!! Hope they continue to grow strong and wait just a few more weeks before trying to make their entrance into the world.


  2. Glad things are going well. Prayers that the consultant gives you encouragement on the leg measurement and it’s nothing to worry over. How exciting that your little one will have a cousin so close in age! My brothers twins are 10 months older than ours and I’m excited they get to grow up together. Hope things go better for SIL this time around.


  3. Congratulations on 34 weeks! You’ve been through so much getting to this point, and I’m so happy to hear that things are going so well! Hope the consultant has reassuring things to say about that leg measurement. I like to remind myself that there are so many tests in pregnancy that odds are you’ll be a bit out of the normal range on one of them, just by chance — hopefully this is that one random fluke for you. I’m thinking of you often and hoping for a smooth, easy, full-term delivery.
