No lengthy blog post this week. Just a little update! I had my baby shower yesterday. ❤ Wasn't going to have one but just had close friends and imediate family and laughed so much I almost went into labour! If you don't talk about shitting yourself during labour or your husband scooping poo out of the birthing pool - is it even a baby shower?! Made me feel very lucky to have such amazing people in my life.
I had to go for a growth scan this week as midwife thought baby was breech and bump hadn't really grown in 2 weeks. Had the scan...not breech 🙌 but measuring big! Though I know these scans aren't an exact science, they said baby was 8Ib 3oz already. And baby's tummy was measuring big which could be a sign of gestational diabetes. Was quite shocked to be honest. I have to measure my glucose levels for a week and see a consultant on Wednesday. And keep in touch with specialist midwives. Had a wobbly/hormonal moment where I started to worry, was it something I had done but I know from other people that even if I do have it - it isn't something to panic about. And these scans can be way off. I will be monitored which is not a bad thing, it doesn't necessarily mean longterm diabetes at all and baby probably won't be 15Ib! Just feel like it's one thing after another with this pregnancy sometimes. And I still need to deep clean the house....But feeling positive, despite Rafe having a full on dirty protest on his high chair this morning. Will spare details. 🙈 Till next week x
