Technically my last scan was going to be the anatomy scan but they saw the pelviectasis and had to order another one that happened to be at 28w.

I only saw our Charlie this week because I had to have an ultrasound for my gallbladder. Next routine growth ultrasound after the anatomy scan is at 32 weeks.

I go in for a 30 week anatomy scan in addition to my every two week visit with OB, I am on the west coast.

I am also starting perineal massage, read about Primrose Oil, but it is a capsule you take by mouth or insert in Cervix? Is that customary? Also Vitamin E and Bio Oil, I have been doing every day, 2x day since beg of 2nd Tri.

Yes to red raspberry leaf tea. Also read to eat dates ​4 weeks before EDD.

I heard avoid certain oils and lubes and stick to either massage gel specifically made for perineal massage or vitamin e oil. Tbh I might email my gyn or just ask at my next appointment because half the sites suggest almond oil as well but half say to avoid it like the plague. Shrugs. I'll check my newsletter to see if it said anything.

Kaiser says "Put some massage oil on your fingers. (Or you can use a water-soluble vaginal lubricant, such as Astroglide or K-Y Jelly.)" But I read specifically to avoid water based lubricants. Ugh I'm so confused!!! I'm just going to ask at my next appointment.

I also heard about raspberry leaf tea and dates. Dunno how much I care about them. Women in my family have always labored fast without them, but I could do the tea. Just not dates. Yuck. Lol. Also, I thought perineal massage starts around 32 weeks? Starting to wonder if I fell behind again lol. My Kaiser newsletter even said 34 weeks! I guess that is 6 weeks before a 40 week due date but still.

Mumma sorry about the additional scan. It's nice that they are monitoring, but I get what you're saying. I'm a wreck before each scan and as much as it sucks knowing my 20w was my last formal and my 28 private scan is my last paid scan bums me out. Seems so crazy to think I don't get to see my bean anymore after that. But then it's like crap 10 weeks and it's like baby time lol

We normally only get a scan at 12 and 20 weeks but due to my Papp a levels I've got to have growth scans at 29 and 35 weeks to rule out iugr.

I've got my next mw appt next week where I'm due some bloods. I'm really hoping my iron levels come back okay but I'm so tired all the time I'm expecting them to be low. I've also scheduled my whooping cough jab for next week as I still haven't had that yet.

I'm glad everything seems to be going well and good results for everyone. I keep checking up in here but seem to be struggling to find the time to post much at the moment.

I think I'm not going to try the raspberry leaf tea just because I'm at risk of giving birth sooner. in my first pregnancy my water broke at 6:00pm and my daughter was born at 1:45am (3 pushes and she was out) contractions started with pitocin at 11(ish) I don't remember that part very clearly. haha

For what it supposed to be the perineal massage?

Perineal massage is to improve vaginal elasticity and decrease chances of tearing. The women in my family tear really bad so I'm definitely all about it
