Pregnancy Blog :: Week 39

Image taken by for Lexis Agency

Behold, the only official photograph of me with a bump during this pregnancy (OK, the only one I'm brave enough to admit to). This photo was taken for Lexis Agency as part of the preparation for the new Sterimar Baby facebook page which officially launches next week (stay tuned to Mellow Mummy to find out how I'm getting involved).

Obviously my bump is quite a bit bigger now; it was a couple of months ago when this was taken but it is a great picture never-the-less. In it, I'm sporting a gorgeous Vanessa Knox crossover maternity top that I won from A Mummy Too.

So, what has been going on this week? On Monday morning I started getting strong Braxton-Hicks at work which lasted pretty much 24 hours. If it wasn't for the fact that there was no consistency in strength or frequency, I would have started to think that it was labour but something inside me just knew it wasn't. Despite this, I did make sure I had the phone number of the hospital at the ready and insisted that Mr. B. pack all of the bags into the back of the car.

Ever since then, the movements of the baby have been very strong and distinctive; pretty uncomfortable at all times, especially when there is a fist being bashed repeatedly into my pelvis.

I have pretty much wound up everything at work now so I am cruising for this final week. Phew. I have also come to an agreement with work over my childcare vouchers which I will, at one point blog about once I've clarified all of my legal facts. It has been a struggle and hasn't come to the conclusion I wanted but I have lots of lessons and info to share with other working second-time mums. In the meantime, if you want to ask me about childcare vouchers then drop me a mail (to the address on my contact page) - I've become somewhat of an expert on the financials of childcare vouchers and the detail of the employment law that governs them!
