Hello! My next appointment is on Tuesday. Dreading it a bit. I hate having blood taken and I'm really not too keen on the midwife at my GPs either which doesn't help matters.
Rib pain has eased a little but somehow I have hurt the ligaments in my foot which isn't ideal! I never thought this would be in my top three of things I miss from pre-pregnancy but I cannot wait to be able to pop a nurofen!!
Also I felt baby switch positions this week. Last week it looked like my bump had dropped but baby was still transverse. Now I feel like head is down and it's bottom is sticking way out. Sideways on I look like a capital B! I have to say it felt very odd and made me a little squeamish the way I felt it move. I cringe at the thought of feeling it again only when baby is much bigger and there is less room!
GL for Thursday CaliGinger! I hated the GTT last time.
My first son was breech so I'm hoping this one stays head down, he was at last check and it's a lot more comfortable than it was last time tbh. I don't have a head in my ribcage
Hope everyone's doing well.
Can't believe we're on the home stretch!
Hubby finished painting the nursery yesterday & it looks fabulous! Got the carpet fitter coming in a couple of weeks. Can't wait to get organised in there!
I've got my 28 week mw appt on Thursday, what happens on that one? Is it just another general check up?
I can totally relate to the pelvic pain. Hellish! Got pelvic support belt & crutches.. The crutches are only for if I'm walking quite far but I've been a home body since being signed off work as rest is the only things that seems to help, so not used them much. Yup can't wait to be able to neck some decent painkillers either but by the time I can I won't need them. Fingers crossed.
Notnic, why are you getting bloods or is that the norm? I have my 28 week app tomorrow. Not sure when I get seen again after that. She said that she will tell me what way baby is positioned but Im not sure what else will happen. I havent been weighed since my booking in app so I would imagine they might do that but who knows.
Caliginger and Hakunamatata, good luck with GT. Im hoping I dont have to get one!
So I still havent bought a thing yet. Reckon at some point soon Ill have to get my finger out and get on with it but Ive been suffering with excruciating back and hip pain for almost the last week so cant walk very far or it starts killing me. Not sleeping because of it so pretty shattered too. Im being referred to a physio so I reckon they will probably give me a bump support to help ease it a bit. going on major shopping spree once Im feeling better.
Oddori, you sound like you are in terrible pain. I hope you feel better soon hun. My ailments seem minor in comparison. xx
Hope you are all fine. Was reading a thread earlier about buying dishcloths to wipe your foof after you give birth and peeing in the shower instead of the toilet and am completely freaked out now!! What on earth are we letting ourselves in for!!
