Piglet Pregnancy – Week 34

October 29, 2015

The past week or so has made me realise that Piglet could arrive at any time and I really need to get myself organised and make sure that things like crib is assembled, my hospital bags are packed and that arrangements are made for Roo and Tigger should I end up going into labour rather than waiting for my c-section date.


  • Is the size of a Butternut Squash
  • Piglet is reacting more to people’s touch, especially knowing when Daddy has his hand on my bump and starts her off wriggling
  • She is also urinating about a pint a day (yuck!)

I’d be lying if I told that I was now experiencing my pregnancy glow. Having managed to catch my first UTI of my life it is not an experience that I’m looking to repeat – I cannot believe the amount of pain and discomfort a water infection can cause. It has truly knocked me for six.


I’m finding that eating little and often is working much better for me. I’ve had a couple of bouts of heartburn which has been a little uncomfortable but making sure that I eat regularly has kept it under control.


I’ve had a busy couple of weeks with appointments mainly due to my water infection. I had my 34 weeks check up with my midwife this morning and she has sent another urine sample off as although my antibiotics have finished I still have some lingering kidney and bladder pain. I’m measuring big for my dates at 37 weeks instead of 34 so she has made a note for my consultant to review this when I go and see him next week. My blood pressure, Piglet’s heartbeat and movements have all been OK so fingers crossed she is happy where she is for a couple more weeks.

    Oooh, getting so exciting! I had a UTI really early on with Toby, they’re awful aren’t they? So painful. I hope you’re feeling better soon for your last couple of weeks xx #BlogBumpClub

    Sorry to hear about the water infection.
    I have the heartburn too.
    Baby responding to touch sounds VERY exciting I am looking forward to that.
    I’ve been measuring +2 at the last 2 appointments, and I know it is accurate as the measurements of baby were all in the upper percentiles at the 4d scan we had on 17th October. It’s like 2010 all over again. Good luck with the remainder of your pregnancy – enjoy it.
