Loony- I hope the meeting goes well! Good that your scan went well and all is good with bubs. The growth scan I had for Toby at 42 weeks was so out with the measurements that I never trust what they say now anyways! Apparently its very hard to predict/measure birth weight.
I am going better today thanks for asking. I didn’t get much sleep again maybe 5 hours but managed a good nap this afternoon and feel much better since. I think a combination of hormones and having bub on my mind all the time is causing the insomnia. Oh and my next midwife appointment (doing a birth centre program so its not OB led) is next Thursday. It’s a three week gap which seems a bit long at this stage but guess its because all is well and they have no concerns. I can call anytime day or night if I am worried about anything. I just want to know if bub is engaged as been having frequent cervix head butts from the baby!
Smurfy- Don’t worry too muchabout bub not being engaged. I’ve heard of people having very successful labours without being engaged before it started. It doesn’t mean the start of labour isn’t around the corner! And yes I will talk to DH about taking Toby out one day like you suggested. He’s normally great with that stuff so sure he won’t mind!
Pony- Lovely scan pic! You must feel great now you’ve seen all is ok.
MCB- glad your interview went well! And good luck for your morph scan tomorrow.
MrsLA- how did the appointment go?
LilPetal- sorry to hear about your gall bladder. I heard that pregnancy can cause gall bladder issues and a friend of mine had to have hers removed a few weeks after she hadher baby. Not a good time for surgery!
Rainbow- what is bubs favourite song? So cute that he moves around when you play him music! Hope you manage to get your name change sorted out soon!
Channy- best of luck for your NT scan tomorrow hun! Look forward to hearing how it goes.
Hi to everyone else and sorry I can’t get to everyone tonight! I am enjoying seeing the pics of all the newborn bubbas. Thanks for posting them Toni LilPetal FTM and Maybee!
AFM- in addition to what I mentioned above- DH and I are back to normal now. We do have these fights now and then like most and its so much worse when you’re tired! He’s gone out tonight to a Rural Fire Service AGM meeting so I’ve got a bit of space which is nice.
I had acupuncture again today and its now twice a week to soften cervix and prepare for birth. Also started my own acupressure on the points meant to help with natural induction. Feel like so much time is taken up with birth preparation! But it will be worth it if I get the birth that I want this time. Mum arrives on Saturday so anytime from then bub is welcome to arrive and I would be happy if she was early! We fly to the UK on 12 Sep so would give me more time to adjust before our trip. Can’t wait to see all our family and friends. Could do without the long flight with two kids though! lol
