Hi there everyone,
How are we all? I’m well. I think so anyway.
I’m currently at week 33 of my pregnancy and now it comes to the business end of it all. I’m all emotions rolled into one. I’m nervous, excited, scared, terrified just to name a few. I have definitely just realized that my partner and I are going to be parents and that just doesn’t seem real. Seems quite bizarre. I didn’t think it would ever happen and now that it is it just seems surreal. But I know that we are nearly ready and I can’t wait to meet our little baby.
I have had quite a few people comment on my ever expanding belly and I have to say that now I cannot wait till my mother gets back from overseas. She has been away for 2 weeks so far and comes home next weekend and I am uber excited to see her reaction when she realizes how much the baby belly has grown.
I have had strangers comment on my baby belly that now I kind of take it in my stride. There is no hiding it now. At all. I can’t disguise it or anything. It just stands out like a big giant lump and while some people may go ewww I go ‘AWESOME’ I love my baby bump and I love how much more better pregnancy has made me feel about my body. Honest to god, if I could be pregnant all the time, I would be. I have honestly had the best time. Mind you, ask me again after bub gets here and it may be another story lol.
I had a scan this week which was awesome. I have had 4 scans since I became pregnant and while I thought this was normal, apparently, no it’s not. One is normal. I have had one to make sure I was pregnant to begin with, I had another to see for down syndrome and what not, another for the 20 week gender reveal (for all those who hadn’t quite gathered we are having a little girl), and then of course I had the one this week which was to see where my placenta was.
Now, while the placenta may not be something you may have realized could cause an issue, apparently in my case, it could. I think at the 20 week scan, it was noticed that my placenta was down too close to my cervix. And apparently the idea is that the placenta should have made it’s way up to where it should be. Otherwise, I have to look at getting a c-section which I don’t really want but if I need it, I will have it.
What else is news……oh yeah. I have started working on all the finer details like who I’m going to contact and what now before and after birth and dealing with health insurance and all that fun stuff. It puts into perspective quite a different side to having a baby that I didn’t know existed. I also have started to figure out what’s going in baby’s hospital bag and also my own and what else we need to get and what not. I have realized we have a lot of washing ahead of us in terms of baby clothes and blankets and what not. Scary stuff!
Anyway, that is all from me for now.
