Still Pregnant.. (41 Week Update)

Oh hi there! Yes, that's right it's Lucie & The Bump - still a bump and not a baby!!!
This will be a very brief 41 week update as 1. I am knackered 2. It's quite pointless telling you things like cravings and symptoms and whether or not I'm in maternity clothes for this week and 3. I am saving the in depth detail for my birth story (if it ever gets here)

So since my last update I have been in and out of early labour and I can safely say that this week has been the hardest and worst week of my life EVER!!
It turns out the sweep I had may have caused me more grief than it was worth.  It could have actually put me in a lot of pain and even kick started contractions but in fact my cervix just wasn't ready enough go the full way yet!
I have spent most nights wide awake with extreme back pain, stomach aches and contractions as well as a couple of trips to the hospital - I promise I will go into more detail when I publish my birth story

So here I am, snuggled up with Mr H with a naughty Harry all cosy and warm still in my belly, where he seems insistent on staying! I'm pain free for now and able to sleep and I am happy to stay that way, so there will be no more sweeps for Lucie!!!

I am booked in to have my waters broken on Thursday 28th November and to be induced if our little boy decides to not make his way out himself before then!

Thank you so much for all the lovely messages, tweets and comments I really appreciate everyone's well wishes and their interest in Harry's arrival!! 
I guess this waiting makes us just even more excited to meet him ourselves, and he will be showered with so much love and affection when we finally get to see his face!!
