30 Week Pregnancy Update

I cannot believe that I am now three-quarters of the way through this pregnancy now. It only seems like yesterday that I found out that we were expecting again. Yes, there may have been many (many) hurdles in between, but now I can see the finish line and know that our baby will be here soon. 

My sickness is easing now but heartburn is still prominent and getting worse all the time. I feel as though I am just downing Gaviscon at the moment to stop it from burning. And of course, the pulled muscle in my back is still playing up, causing pain but I'm trying not to think about that too much. 

I have felt that baby hiccup loads recently. I think it may be down to the fact that I am drinking fizzy drinks and maybe it's passing on to him but I'm not quite sure whether that can happen, and to be honest, I still can only drink fizzy drinks so it will probably be like this till the end now. 

It's getting to the stage now where sleep is very disturbed. If I'm not waking to pee every hour, then the baby wakes me up having a play or heartburn flares up, so as you can imagine, it is quite hard at the moment to focus and get things done because I am constantly tired. 

As for bump, should be weighing in at around 3 pounds and be nearly 16 inches long. He may be now piling in the fat, ready for entrance into the big wide world, but he is also losing the fine lanugo hair that covers his body. 

I don't see the midwife now until 34 weeks and so shouldn't really have much to update on between now and then. If I do though, you lot will be the first to know.
