Sorry I have been so slack in posting lately. Been a bit busy with finishing work and having a cold.
I will come back later on do personals, but here is a quick update.
Braxton Hicks - Is anyone timing or taking note of how long they are lasting for? Mine are still inconsistent but painful and a lot of them. But not sure when to really start taking notice of them. Some I do have to breath through now.
Sleeping - I have good nights and I have bad nights. Last night I slept from 11:30pm till 4:40am without getting up to go to the toilet. It was the best sleep in a while. Only thing that was different to normal was DF & I had sex and then I had a warm shower as I ended up with braxton hicks and a sore JJ (sorry TMI). But it was the best sleep... So maybe if you can handle it try sex for a good nights sleep
Maternity leave - I am hanging for tomorrow so I can relax after I drop DD to school. Monday mum & I went shopping and got a few things for the baby and I spent the day at mums house. Tuesday mum & I went to Ikea to get a new blind for my kitchen window and I bought a rug (ex display) for DD's floor for only $7. It had a few marks on it but we cleaned them off. Today (wednesday) I had an OB appointment at 11:30 and physio appointment at 1pm. Busy day, I just hope the OB's aren't running late.
We have DD's science fair tonight from 5:30 - 7pm. DD is a finalist, she doesn't know yet, she will be so shocked when her name gets called to get her award!!! Proud mummy moment.
I have been having lots more low down pressure the last few days and my belly has noticeably dropped. I think the baby has engaged a fair bit more than last week. Will be interesting to see what the OB says. I am sure at times my waters are about to break. Lots of pressure and I can i all pushing down.
Well I am off for now. Gotta leave in about half an hour for the hospital. Meeting a lady there who bought a heap of DD's clothes. YAY!!! One lot gone and $50 in my pocket...
Will come back later once I have my OB appointment and update on how baby is going.
