36 Weeks: Bumpometer

36 Weeks: Bumpometer

I cannot believe yet another week has passed so quickly, where is all this time going? I can only assume that Noah keeps me so occupied and doesn't allow me the time to sit and ponder on the bump as much that it's just zooming past. It only seems a few weeks ago that we were having a scan and planning on telling people, it's madness. This week has been OK, no real major things happening. I am getting a lot of fetal movement and a lot of cramps, what feel like period pain. I think because of the SPD I am getting a burning feeling in my top left leg/hip area, a hot water bottle helps with that though, so that's good. I have had many more Braxton Hicks contractions, some are a lot worse than others, but nothing that compares to the real ones - I can safely ...

29 weeks: Bumpometer

This week there isn't much change from last week, I still have pain in the pelvis and I am feeling tired. I'm not letting myself slow down just yet though as I have so much to do. Still awaiting the physio appointment, but the midwife said to wait until 2 weeks and then chase it, fingers crossed something comes through the post tomorrow. Bump is very "bumpy" at the moment, every single movement feels like I am getting kicked into the beyond and looks like a section of Alien the movie.

Why is it that everyone keeps telling me to get to bed early, I know I need to get to bed early, yet I never seem to make it to bed (to sleep) until at least midnight... then up at 7am the next day! How ...

24 weeks… A Milestone!

I can’t speak for everyone but to me 24 weeks is a milestone!! From 24 weeks a little baby, if born, has a higher chance of surviving with help from the professionals. 24 weeks is the cut off for abortions (which I cannot understand how anyone would voluntary do at 23 weeks!! ) My opinion and it might be harsh, but I do not understand it! You can feel every movement at 23 weeks, it’s a rather large baby that could survive if born. Makes me sad. I know there are circumstances where people have to, which is completely different. Im just meaning those people that decide at 23 weeks that they just don’t want it anymore… Strong opinion but that’s my opinion! It’s also around the 6 month mark, 1/2 a year is a long time and a lot has happened with baby in that time. Oh and there’s…
