I’m now 32 + 3 weeks and I’m starting to get tired again .
Still trying to figure out if today is an exception or the dreaded symptoms of the third trimester are upon me again! Plus it doesn’t help that in my last midwife appointment my blood level was good so the midwife said I don’t need the iron tablets anymore! So is my tiredness a result of being in the third trimester, stopping my iron tablets or it’s just one of them day..?
Right! So finally hit 32 weeks – the 8 month mark and I’m getting more than excited! I can’t wait to meet her and I want to hold her already! But I know I need to be patient so she comes out perfect…
Also had a midwife appointment on Friday (the male midwife again!). Baby’s heartbeat is good but he said at this point it’s more the baby’s movement. If I notice a drop in the movement I need to make a call to the clinic and they would advise me what to do. Although they will advise me to drink cold water or a fizzy drink and/or something sweet to get baby’s glucose level up and see if it’ll make the little one move! If that still doesn’t do anything then they would bring me in for a scan… I have faith it will never come to that!
I’ve been a pretty busy bee this last week! Just so much to do and no, we haven’t quite been been getting ready for the little one! But hopefully all that will now change with the new house and room for the little one!
We moved into our lovely new home last weekend! I’m so glad thats over and done with! The basic furnitures we ordered arrived on time including the lush corner leather sofa, the lush (I say this again) memory foam mattress, our brand new tv with the tv stand and one of the bed frames! Oh and Sky came over to fix the Sky Tv…
Well, like the title says, I have sadly begun to Waddle… How so very depressing!!
This week started like any other week except for the tiny fact that my engagement ring no longer fits! The horror!! Thank goodness my wedding ring still fits although I find that a bit strange considering they’re supposed to be the same size! Oh well… Better than nothing!
So Friday came and I went to see the midwife. And shockingly it was a Male midwife!!
Don’t get me wrong, I have no issues, (or maybe I do!) but there’s something just odd about that. In the end he was a really nice man! Answered all my questions, measured my belly (29cm, just right, thank God) and checked my blood pressure, that was great as well. So all is well with my little one and the male midwife did his job just right!
At last, we order our first baby stuff!
I know! am I mad? Waiting this long and all! But then again it could be said that we wanted to be sure and wait a little longer! But we saw a good deal and decided to go for it!
We got the Mothercare Spin Travel System. It comes with the pram/pushchair convertible and we also went for the Maxi Cosi car seat as well. Hopefully this will be the most expensive baby gear we buy and we’ll use it for a number of years and most likely hand it down to the brother or sister.
