This week has been a week of rest. Well sort of. Everything seems to have calmed down after last weeks scare. I did have one evening of some pretty impressive braxton hicks with lower backache. Not going to lie, I was a little bit freaked out that it was the start of something. Bump also had one very, very quiet day. She usually wriggles around quite a lot and she wouldn’t even move for her Daddy. When he talks to the bump it usually gets a response. I hardly slept that night with worry. But the next day she more than made up for it. With everything that has been going on, I’m looking forward to having her safely in my arms.
I’ve finally finished getting everything for the hospital bags, which are packed! All the baby clothes have been washed and my list of stuff to get is getting smaller.
I had the midwife and the growth is still slowing, so I had a scan and baby is infact measuring above average, although the bump is measuring under. This has worried me as I had a pretty horrible last labour with an 8lb baby and complications for me after. Because of this and my spd I’m seeing a consultant in a couple of weeks to discuss birth options.
I also had a physio appointment this week. I was told off for not using the crutches I have been given. I’ve had spd since 10 weeks this time and it’s horrible. The rest the last couple of weeks has helped, but doing even every day stuff is getting harder by the day. So I’ve had to swallow my pride and I’ve started using them. I know I shouldn’t be embarrassed about it, but I am. However she said if I don’t use them I could do even more damage as the bones are separating and even said about using a wheelchair for the last few weeks. By the way a normal handbag is a no no with crutches. I’ve had to buy a backpack :/
