|30-3-2009 - 33 week appointment Can I fly on Wednesday??
||My mood while writing this blog:|
This was the all important Drs appt to see if I could fly on Wednesday or not. I walked in and she was like what are you still doing here lol she checked me for dilation and oh my God did that hurt! I was in agony my legs kept closing lol. I am like ½ a centimeter dilated so that’s ok! Next she gives me an ultrasound which was a total surprise I thought I was just going in for an internal check. My baby is engaged and VERY low down, now that explains all the pains I have been getting. I have been moaning so much in the forums about how my pelvis feels crushed and I can’t sleep. I can barley walk sometimes every step feels like I’m trying to do the splits. She said if it was a long haul flight she wouldn’t let me go but as it’s only 3 hours she gave me the certificate yay! I’m so happy woohoo! I have been put on bed rest because he is so low she’s worried my cervix will continue to open with all the pressure. I still have so much I need to do it sucks but what can you do. So funny because the other day I could barely walk and I was limping and my husband was like why are you being so over the top haha his face was priceless when the dr was saying oh my you must be in so much pain. I was like see I wasn’t being over the top so now he’s being a total sweetheart to make up for it. She said it doesn’t mean I will give birth early as long as I take it easy so that’s good to know. Of course once I’m 37 weeks I will be stopping my bed rest lol.
I feel bad for the baby it must be so uncomfortable having his head stuck so low down this early on. I can always feel his wiggles of frustration, poor love. His head is down and his body is laying towards the left side of my belly his neck looks bent on the u/s he looks so uncomfortable. He is measuring average, not too small not too big so that’s good to know. I will post my 33 week belly pic tonight you can totally tell I have dropped especially when I compare it to my 30 weeks pic. I can’t take my iron anymore because it stopped me from doing a number 2 for about a week so she gave me this new vitamin which is a combination of B vitamins for energy. That’s all I have to update on really I hope you ladies are all well I know a lot of us are very uncomfortable but we don’t have very long to go!
Weight update I was 27lbs at my last appt I have now actually lost a pound so that puts me at 26lbs in total. I'm not surprised I have totally lost my appetite and I only crave fruit. Dr was hoping that I would put on 40lbs in total due to my low BMI but she said it's ok as the baby is measuring right on track!
