This pregnancy is flying by! I’ll admit, I’ve been kind of in denial that the end is coming so soon..I haven’t done anything to prepare! At my last midwife appointment my midwife was asking me what the plan is for labour..who will watch the kids, etc. And we hadn’t really thought about it yet, or asked anyone to be on call if we need them, etc. I guess soon it will be time to start getting out baby clothes and buying newborn sized diapers! It’s hard to believe that this little one could come full term in as little as 5 more weeks!
I’ve been a bit unsure of dates this whole pregnancy and baby is still making me wonder, not that it really matters TOO much. I’ve been measuring 1-3 weeks ahead for a while now. My due date was already adjusted by a few days after my dating ultrasound. So on paper I’ll be 32 weeks tomorrow but I’m wondering if I’m a little bit ahead of that.
My first ultrasound showed a few “leaks” or bleeds around the placenta and between that and measuring 3 weeks ahead, my midwife ordered another ultrasound to check on everything. I haven’t heard anything from my midwife so I’m assuming all checked out the way she wanted to see it! Baby is already head down and seems to have nice chubby cheeks!
I’ve been feeling pretty well overall..nothing I can really complain about! I’m feeling more uncomfortable and bulkier than I’m used to feeling at this stage but thankfully not in pain at all. Baby’s heartbeat has always been fantastic, in the 140s, with every check-up. My blood pressure has been it’s usual low side. We are pretty sure we’re set on a name for baby. So all in all, everything is going well!
