35 weeks 1 day

Less than 2 more weeks and I'm done with work... Thank goodness! All I want to do is bludge at home for a bit and rest up before the big day. I am also suffering from placenta brain... To the EXTREME. I swear, pregnant women past 32 weeks should not be allowed to work in any job that requires her brain to be used.

So the the first week I have to muself I'm getting physically prepared for motherhood. How? I hear you ask. Well, Monday 7th June is hair appointment day, Tuesday is a major waxing session. Planning on getting a brazillian but I have a feeling it's going to be way too painful so just might have a tidy up. Wednesday will be a facial and pedicure and then Friday I'm getting the baby car seat fitted. Then I'm going to hibernate at home until I need to go to hospital to give birth, venturing out only to go to drs appointments.

Speaking of which, my next OB appointment I get another ultrasound! Yay! So excited to see my little man again before the birth. Hopefully I'll be able to put up another cool 3D scan on my blog.

And how's the lap band going? Pretty good! No weight gain at the moment. Steady at 103.5kg. Doctor is super happy as this is the time when preggo women gain the most weight. If I can stay the way I am I'll drop a good 8-10kg in the first couple of weeks after I give birth. The restriction is prefect. I'm sure once the baby is out there will be less restriction and I'll need to visit my fill doctor for a top up but for now I'm just grateful that I can eat most things but still have some awesome restriction.

That's it for now. Thanks for Reading :)

Such an exciting time for you. The placenta brain turns in to nappy brain and that can go on for some time!
