Late pregnancy can be a pretty uncomfortable time. The baby keeps on growing, getting a little bit bigger each day, and your body has to adjust. We'll help you cope!
Late pregnancy discomforts
Short of breaths
The baby is now high up under your ribs and this make you feel quite breathless. In a week or two the baby may slip down into your pelvis and give you a little more space. Meanwhile, you might find it easier to sit in a straight-backed chair rather than an armchair.
You may find it quite hard to eat properly. Your stomach is squashed and, even you are hungry, you may feel full after only a couple of mouthfuls. Eat little and often (and try to make sure that everything you do eat is good for you!)
Heartburn is a problem for some women. Again, eat small meals, avoid spicy foods or anything else that seems to cause it, and talk to your midwife about what over-the-counter remedy to take.
As your bump gets bigger, you may find it hard to get to sleep. Try lying on your side with your top knee resting on a cushion. This prevents any pressure on your bump, but you might also need more room in bed. Warn your partner that he will have to move over!
You will have your hands full when the baby arrives, so battle boredom by spending time on activities that make you feel good. Warm baths, candlelit dinners, trying out new recipes..things you won't have so much time for when you' re looking after your new arrival.

All the facts above are true and it all have been happened to me..Alhamdulillah ala kulli hal. My baby bump is still high so i hope i will not deliver lil one soon. coz we still haven't finished prepared for lil one's stuff yet!! but insya Allah will try to settle the matter by the end of next week..hopefully!
In my last check up with my consultant aka doctor, my pregnancy was seem to be fine..it's just my hb. Even i was prescribed with iron tablet 200mg daily..the reading was still around 10.7, 10.8. But the consultant said hb around 10 is still acceptable, he asked me to keep on taking the iron tablet daily so that my hb will not be below 10..:D With that, i have no more appointments at N.U.H until 14th of April, if i still not deliver by 11th of April. (EDD). Instead, i'll gonna have two or three more appointments with midwife at Dreary Midwifery Clinics at Stratford next week. Aah lega, dah tak payah pergi-balik hospital..hihi.
Actually, i have been unwell since last two weeks..i had a bad cough, sore throat and eye swollen. So last week, i went to see a gp to check my condition after there was no sign of recovery. The gp only prescribed me with antibiotics capsules which are safe for pregnant women. Now, i'm taking the antibiotics three times per day and it will be for five days..huhu. Still, my stubborn phlegm is there but my eyes are not longer swollen. Sekarang ni 2-3 kali bangun malam sebab nak terkucil, apabila kena batuk-batuk ni lagilah kan. ;( Malam lagi teruk batuk, macam sepanjang malam batuk. Sakit giler muscles around abdomen..sakit satu badan, tu yang tak larat nak duduk depan lappie lama2..bila dah penat2 siang hari, malam terus nak tidur baring aje..tak sempat nak update blog and blogwalking. :)
But this morning, i felt much better. Alhamdulillah my voice is coming back..walaupun serak2 lagi at least keluar la juga bunyi. hihi. I feel high-spirited though my body is still ached here and there but i feel to go out and do some shopping today! Will see..Hoho banyak lagi barang baby yang masih belum dibeli lagi ini. Baby cot and infant carseat especially! Esok Car Boot sales ada tempat dah dibuka..Check kt sini. Tapi yang dekat cuma 2 je kat area Walthamstow dan Islington.
Tapi tak sure la ada pre-loved cot and carseat yang dalam good condition ke tak. Kene tengok jugak condition..memang la boleh dapat cot and carseat brand baik dan harga jauh lebih murah tapi takut dari segi safety tu tak terjamin la. Takut terbeli ada part2 yang dah hilang ke..adey, nyaya! Kalau nak beli yang baru, so far survey2 tengok baby cot murah kat Ikea. (Ikea pun ada sales sekarang. ;)) Carseat yang baru may be ada jual kt ebay..tapi tak suka la beli kt ebay..kan? Sebelum beli, kita nak la pilih2, nak pegang2 dulu kn...;p So tengoklah macam mana...hubby kata susah2 beli aje baru kat mana2..dia rasa kt sini kalau carseat Mothercare dalam 40pounds tu muuuurah aje..tandem stroller Mothercare 170pounds pun dia kata murah. hihi. Padahal kalau kali duit Malaysia tuh, beratus-ratus cecah seribu juga..:D
Kalau tak jumpa kat Carboot, ada rezeki, kita beli baru je la ye Adik Boy..along Zahin n angah Iris dulu pakai pre-loved je..OK aje. SIL bagi pinjamkan baby cot anak dia, Syira..jimat you! hehe..Ni datang sini, cot tu ada je tinggal kat rumah di Melaka..:( Travel Playpan yang ktrg beli kat Anakku untuk Iris ktrg hadiahkan plak kt BIL last year sebab dah tau nak fly..kan. Itulah, ingatkan nak beli travel playpan je kt sini..senang sket klu nk travel bley bawak ke mana2..Hmm tapi tengok kat Mothercare, yang jenama Mothercare plg murah dlm 40pounds tapi kitorang macam tak puas hati, sebab tak sekali dengan mattress and then the level cannot be adjustable. Kene survey2 lagi la nampaknya. Hopefully, by the end of this week jumpa la yang berkenan di hati. Mothercare pun tgh mid season sales sekarang kn. hihi..
So hopefully, i can go out shopping today. Oh i might, by hook or by crook. :D Hubby pun dah lama ajak shopping, mak buyung ni aje yang tak sihat, tak larat nak keluar rumah. Dah gelabah and stress jgk kot en hubby..hahaha. So wish me happy shopping, yea! (orang lain pregnant dah lama start shopping ek, sy je yang tertinggal train! ;p)
