||My mood while writing this blog:|
Just been to see the midwife and she took some bloods to test for antibodies and my iron levels. Also had my blood pressure taken which was 90/55. Baby's heartbeat was 148 bpm. She thinks the head is down which I am so pleased about as I don't really want a caesarean and I am measuring exactly at 28 weeks so all good news.
My stomach is getting bigger now - but just looks like I have swallowed a football - all the weight is on my stomach. Can't stop eating sweet things like buns and biscuits but apart from that my appetite hasn't increased that much.
Its all getting a bit exciting now and I can't wait for the 11 weeks to fly by so I can see/hold our new (and last) baby.
I have just sorted out my MATB1 form so will be getting paid maternity pay whilst I am off. I am definitely having the 9 months paid off and then will have to see. I will have 10 weeks holidays and my daughter starts full time school a year in September so trying to stretch my time off to then as much as I can so my Mum will only have 1 to look after whilst I go back part-time.
Been getting cramps in my legs in the middle of the night - not much fun that. Some heartburn I had a few weeks ago for a week or so seems to have gone and I am sleeping better so all is good.
