39 week midwife check

20120430-232320.jpg

It was the first appointment this pregnancy that Daddy was able to make, due to times of appointments and Daddy’s new job (since Noah) it’s made it hard for him to be involved. But it was nice to have him there, it almost made me feel calmer and more relaxed. Not that he does anything apart from be there, but it was nice seeing his beaming smiles as the midwife said things.

Everything is great and on target, measurements are fine, heartbeat was fine and position of lil monkey hasn’t changed- still head down, back and bum to right, limbs to the left. Which is where I get most movement, as you can see from photo. She still thinks heartbeat sounds like the sex she guessed 2 weeks ago and time before that. No change there and Daddy’s face lit up the room when she said that.

Baby’s head is more engaged now and she said its not as free, which would explain the horrid pain I’ve had over the past 2 days when walking. Complete uncomfort, stinging sensations and
The achyness. But as I keep telling myself it won’t be long!

Shes booked in for a 41 week check and I do hope that we don’t make it. I’ll be hugeeeee and at this rate not walking. Especially if this stinging keeps up…

Fingers crossed baby is nice to mummy this time around 🙂

  • Aaw I can’t help but smile looking at your pic of your little bump, I miss my bump although I’m even more happy I have a gorgeous little bubba
    Now. I remember all too well that sore, aching, pressure feeling Down below just before I went into labour, it was so uncomfortable I was too scared to walk as I feared may have gone into labour lol.
    Good luck with it all Hun, I’m looking forward
    To seeing your cute little button soon 🙂

    • Thank you Angela. It’s all so surreal at the moment, everyone has been telling me itll come early and it hasn’t… Yet… So I’m on tenter hooks everyday. I’m not even up to due date yet. God knows what I’ll be like next week haha xxx

  • I’m so intrigued about the heart beat rates and whether midwives know if its a girl or a boy. My friend told me about it and her midwife was spot on. We’re expecting a girl, but the heartrate is normally about 140 I think, and when I’ve googled it, apparently anything above 140 and it’s likely to be a girl and under and it’s likely to be a boy but we’re right on the line so can’t even compare that to the scan on whether they might be right or not and I can’t remember what the heartrate was when I had my little boy! Will be interesting to see if your midwife guesses right, bet you’re so desperate to know after waiting all this time. xx

    • Noahs was always recorded around 135-144bpm… If that’s any help! 🙂 yes I’m intrigued to see if she knows or is just bluffing… Hehe… Old wives tales make me chuckle x
