Yes, Morebabies it definitely looks like a proper bump!
Well tonight we start our prenatal classes! We have had to do them a bit early as I really wanted to do them through my midwife's office and they don't offer a summer course. I am really excited; I hope I don't forget everything before Isla get here though!
Also, my appointment with the midwife went well. Gestational Diabetes testing is done and we got to go through the results of my 20 week ultrasound (all looks great). Isla was rocking around (not surprising after the pure sugar drink I had to down ) and her heartbeat measured at 156 bpm My next appointment is at the end of the month and then I move to every two weeks, I can't believe I am getting to that point already
Sounds good mrs Eddie. Is ur antenatal Class a small class? I really enjoyed mine last time and met some lovely people! Do u know the results to ur diabetes check? Btw u were the 1000th poster on here lol! X
And that is one good looking bump! Makes mine look huge!!
Hope you enjoyed your antenatal class Mrs Eddie. I'm off to my first one tonight but it's at the children's centre - our nhs ones start in june.
I went for my anti-d yesterday and mentioned to the midwife that every last inch of me is itchy so they took bloods for liver function and told me if I can't stand it then take some piriton. I'm dubious though as my regular midwife told me not to take piriton as it has a sedative effect and can pass the placenta. I'm trying just to cope for now but rapidly reaching the point where i can't stand it. Hubby told me I've even been scratching in my sleep!
Mrs. Eddie how did you class go last night? I've never taken any classes before.
Annio so sorry to hear about how itchy you are! I had a severe eczema outbreak when I was pregnant with DD2 and was covered neck to ankles with rashes all over my body. It was absolutely miserable and like you would be itching while sleeping and end up leaving blood stains on the sheets. I hope you find some sort of relief because its definitely not fun being that itchy! Massive
Tom's, yes it is a antental class, we have five more classes to go!
Annio, sorry about the itchy skin, that sounds awful. Hope you get some relief soon!
Last night's class was quite good. It is a small class, there are five couples in total and everyone seems really nice! We went over the various stages of labour last night and I think it was a really good learning experience for both DH and myself. I was also surprised as I thought that I would be the least pregnant person there but two of the girls were 22 weeks along, one had a due date the day before mine and the other is 30 weeks along. I actually felt bad for the girl who is 30 weeks as she is totally freaked out and panicked that she doesn't know enough yet. I told her she would be fine but by the end of the class I think she was even more freaked out, the poor thing.
The instructor was also very nice, interesting but nice, (she's definitely very knowledgeable and passionate about childbirth and motherhood). She is also a doula and a strong advocate of home birth, unmedicated birth, etc. Interesting as I have thought about trying to avoid pain management drugs as I learn more about labour but then worry that I may be too much of wuss and won't be able to handle it.
Rubbish about the itching Annio, I've had thrush twice this pregnancy and that's bad enough! .... Maybe try some coconut oil, it's a miracle worker
Glad the class went well Mrs E, I am still in 2 minds about whether to go to my classes when the time comes although there is a good local homebirth fb group which I might go to .... It's nice to know all the options and I never even considered a home birth last time.
I went to a yoga class this morning, it was lovely .... I''ve been doing a bit of yoga at home for the past 6 months but this is the 1st class I've been to. Thought I should get some pointers while pregnant! It's just a normal class but I'm on the waiting list for a pregnancy specific one, which I should start next month, so exciting!
Had a fantastic visit last night.... To the resus dept at work Was all scrubbed in theatre, gown and mask etc, and assisting at a section and fainted cracking my jaw on the table, then splitting the back of my head open with the instrument trolley. Now got lovely bruises down the side of my face, down my ribs and tummy and on both the back and forehead. Lush! Off sick tonight and got my consultant/scan appt Fri so may ask to be signed off for a couple of weeks. Oh and the doctor thinks I've broken my coccyx but won't x-ray me as I'm pregnant
