"I found the 1st trimester very challenging due to sickness & fatigue, but I can honestly say 38-40weeks has been a lot tougher mentally & physically! It’s this weird limbo stage.

"I’ve worked through the list of eating dates, pineapple, walking,sweeps, spicy food, raspberry leaf tea, clary sage oil baths, birthing ball.

"But we know what I mean!!! I give up and I’m just going to relax and let nature take its course as it’s so disheartening when nothing happens!! #40weekspregnant."
