Pregnancy Update Week 34…
After the crazy events of last week, this week has been very quiet in comparison! After lots of baby heart scans in hospital, I was finally discharged. I have been put under consultant care as I’m now deemed high risk. During my consultant appointment, he seemed happy with the scans & has decided he doesn’t now need to see me until 40 weeks. Good news! Now it’s just a waiting game to see if baby decides to hang in there or make an early appearance.
The whole experience has left me exceedingly aware of every twinge & I am constantly carrying my hospital bag with me everywhere I go. Most of my time is spent on Google looking at potential labour signs… I’ve had quite a few “contractions” which have led nowhere & quite a lot of back pain. I need to just try & chill out & continue life as normal!
How big is the baby? As large as a cantaloupe!
Total weight gain / loss? +14 lb
Maternity clothes? Same old leggings & jumpers!
Sleep? Much better now I’m back home. Sleeping until about half 7, but finding it hard to get out of bed!
Best moment this week? When I was discharged from hospital.
Symptoms? Contractions / tightenings & back ache
Food cravings? Curry… it was so good!
Food aversions? None.
Stretch marks? Still just the old ones.
What I miss? Alcohol – I’m back on wanting alcohol again after the stressful couple of weeks I’ve had!
What I’m looking forward to? Going into labour – I just want it over with!
Bump? Burrowing into my pelvis I think… so much pressure & bladder issues!
