I know you are probably thinking that my pregnancy updates are practically non-existent but to be honest my pregnancy has been pretty much uneventful.
In the last update I told you that I was suffering with pain in my pelvis, this has now got a lot worse, some days I struggle to walk or move. I am finding it very uncomfortable to sleep as where baby boy is kicking into my sides I toss and turn a lot which adds more pressure to my pelvis. Trying to walk after getting out of bed is horrendous, it is like my legs and hips do not know how to walk, I described it to my husband as a scene from The Wizard of Oz, when the Tin Man gets oiled and he struggles to walk. Yeh that is me, most nights now.
I am 26 weeks now and the time is flying by way too quickly for my liking. Heartburn has been with me since day one but now I am finding no relief in the Peptac liquid that I have been prescribed.
I think, yes just think, I have everything I need for his arrival now, he has plenty of clothes to kit him out for the first 3 months at least. We have all the big things now too.
I have bought a pre-packed labour bag, minus clothing, although knowing me I will take it all out a million times to check I have everything.
We have decided what outfit he will wear as his going home outfit, although that may change several times when I am taking things out of the bag to check them.
I am wanting to start sorting my birth plan out, I did this for my last pregnancy and even though I didn’t stick to it completely it did help.
I also have my GTT (Glucose Tolerance Test) next Friday morning which I am dreading as it is a fasting test so I am going to be more than likely tired, hungry and extremely grumpy until I can have food again.
