27 weeks down 13 left to go!

This week started with me on bed rest and has ended in information overload….

End of 26 weeks start of 27 weeks I began cramping in my lower front belly which wouldn’t be weird if also baby girl wasn’t the most active when cramping that’s she’s ever been. And I’m not talking just mild cramping I’m talking really bad period can’t walk it hurts cramping..

I clearly got a check up straight away and was put on bed rest for two days which definitely made things calm down. Which brings me into 27 weeks I already had a OB appointment booked for the Tuesday and I sat down with my ob and went over everything with him, turns out I got a taste of Braxton Hick contractions which isn’t that un-normal as I’ve had two pregnancy close together (two years) and because of my line of job ( educator) which is a high stressful environment.

After our chat we finally got to the scan and we soon learnt why I also might be in so much pain towards my lower belly, she likes to be head down. So in easy terms her head is pressing down on my lady bits and I’m over it!

The only bad thing about her head being so low down is when we tried to get a nice 3D picture all we could see was her ear… I was upset about this but then I soon learnt from now onwards I will be seeing my OB every two weeks until she is born as I’m close to the end!!!

Pregnancy symptoms this week:

• bad cramping and discomfort

• round ligament pains

• starting to get water weight around my face and looking a little puffy and swollen.

Pretty good week other than the Braxton Hick scare. Which it’s been a nice change.

Engery levels:

Well my two year old got sick over the long Australia Day weekend and with that meant his sleep patterns were pretty much thrown out the window as we’re mine. But surprisingly my body has been able to handle it and the only day I felt really tired and exhausted was when my body clock woke me from 1am-3am and I ended up watching tv.

Bump update.

According to my app:

She is the size of a cabbage….

And she’s only meant to 38cm and 0.98kgs well after my scan I can safely say she’s about 1kg already and that’s a big baby.

How I’m feeling:

Definitely beginning to feel run down and just trying to keep going is my main goal, walking has slowed down and I’m walking more and more like a penguin… I take it week by week at the moment.

Can’t wait to see what 28 weeks of pregnancy has in the works for me and finally in the home yard and third trimester!
