Hi Ladies

London and married - fantastic bumps!! Looks great on you ladies

Soph and Jessy - i'm debating a VBAC too but there's 2 things that are putting me off 1. DD was back to back and it really hurt really quickly and 2. I had a tear to my uterus on DD and they wont know whether there is an issue with it until either me or the baby show signs of distress....

I've literally just had another growth scan today and have a whopping 4.5lb baby who is on 95th centile, seeing as though I've got another 8 or 9 weeks left I hope they've got dodgy measurements!! I also saw a consultant and he said they've lost my theatre notes from my ECS so he wants to see me again on 19th December for another growth scan and to discuss my birthing plans. Was meant to do it today but he wanted the notes before making any suggestions and it could depend on what they say as to whether I have a choice or not. Aside from that tings are going well, SPD symptoms have all but gone but I do have sciatica instead. I've got someone coming for the rest of the week to decorate the babies nursery - was going to do it myself but just cant face it as I get exhausted just walking up the stairs lol once that's papered i'll start his washing and getting his room ready. I am also yet to decide on a pram and at this rate will be just getting a car seat to bring baby home in

Thank you Wills.
It's nice to have a proper bump now not just look chunky!

We have similar weighing babies, our baby girl measured 4 pound 6 at our scan last week which was at 31 + 4
They said she is growing nicely... but in my head I was wishing she was a little smaller haha.

Midwife tomorrow.

Kiwi you're looking similar to me size wise! Great photo! I have an app called Baby Centre which has the stickers and week numbers to take a photo so I have one for every week back to 11 weeks when I first felt confident that the pregnancy was going to be okay. I'll have to post the very first and last when I eventually reach the end!

I cannot believe our group is now nearly at the end of the pregnancy journey! It's gone so quick I can't believe it!

App sounds good. Wish I'd been better at taking pics... will try take one weekly from now on when bump is expanding a lot!

Yes time is really flying now isn't it. I find that the weeks are going really quickly!

Hey ladies, beautiful looking bumps! Glad to hear that your all doing well.

Just had 2 days at hospital (outpatient but the time I spent there may as well have just admitted me). Feeling a bit down at the moment as I feel very guilty. I've had to have a V/Q test and a CPAT test, both of which are radiation, the first one injected and inhaled and the second in a CAT scanner. Both carry a small risk to baby - it is very small, but I still feel like the world's worst parent for having to have them. She's moving around fine and all looks to be ok but still

I have had a clot on my lung. It's dispersed now thanks to anticoagulation but left un diagnosed, could have killed me. So there was a good reason for the tests but I just feel so shite that I had to make that choice

I'm off for the next few days and returning to work for my last week on Monday, against medical advice, but I can't afford loads of SSP.

Home now, still breathless and will have to speak to my pregnancy consultant as I have too much fluid and it's putting pressure on my lungs also causing the breathlessness.

Fun times! Besides that, I'm actually ok within myself. Just a rough few days x

Omg Sarah, so sorry to hear what you're going through. That sounds awful.
Don't beat yourself up about the radiation exposure, you have to do what you have to do. I hope that you make a speedy recovery and just think, not much longer left till you're on permanent rest
Sending you lots of hugs xx

sarah - I had to get an xray around 23 weeks and I felt SO guilty but like you said, it's supposed to be very minimal exposure (both yours and mine!) so hopefully all will be ok! I hope you feel better soon!!!

Ohhh Sarahcake how awful!!!! I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. Do not feel any guilt at all. Baby will be absolutely fine and you need to look after yourself too.

I phoned to let them know about vbac today! Spoke to midwife who will get consultant to phone next week because they have to discuss pros and cons with me again. Consultation can just be done over phone which is handy.

I had whooping cough and flu vaccines yestttdsy and I am so ill today!!! Does anyone know if it's likely to be from side effects or just a coincidence?

Nice bump Soph!
A lot of people do get sick immediately after the flu jab. Hopefully you'll
Be ok soon and it won't come back.

Had my midwife appt today.
Babies head is down. Growing nicely. My bump is measuring a week behind... but I'm not complaining about that!
Heard her heart beat 💗
She talked me through the use of cots, Moses baskets and breastfeeding -
Not sure if that's standard for the 32 week visit or because she had a trainee midwife in there. All the same was nice to have a slightly longer appt.

Consultant next week then midwife at 35 weeks. Eekk it's getting so real!
