Size: honeydew melon and about 2.2kg according to ultrasound.
What’s Bubs Up To: hiccups, lots of kicking and swishing around, squishing her head down in my pelvis like a good little thing but being posterior like the little fire cracker I’m sure she’s going to be (I was in the same position when I was born apparently – pay back is going to be a bitch!)
Symptoms: sleeplessness, tight skin – yay for about 3 stretchmarks I can spot NOT, exhaustion
Cravings: chocolate ice-cream, salt and vinegar chips, coffee
Keep that away from me: meat (I will eat it no problems just don’t like handling it)
Feelings: bitchy, anxious (I’m still feeling like I have to wait until she’s here before I can breathe), grumpy, tired/exhausted, mentally completely unprepared!
Random: I had my last scan and she’s measuring fine and then at my appointment they said she was posterior but head down and not breech so that’s something! We also had our ‘refresher’ parenting class which made me sort of wish I’d gone to the other classes for first timers now because I can’t remember anything! I just know it’s going to hurt but all be worth it in the end. It was funny as well because 4 out of 6 people hadn’t been to the birth centre with their firsts and the other couple who had was the only one in the room who had delivered there versus us who had to head to the main hospital.
