30 Weeks Pregnant

I can't believe I have hit 30 weeks pregnant!! That means we only have 10 weeks until baby girl is due. This is both a scary and very exciting thought :D

This week has been a week from hell! I have also got a lovely cold this week which is super fun. Other than that I haven't had too many symptoms. I've noticed a lot more braxton hicks and it feels like my bump has dropped a little and got lower.. just baby girl changing position no doubt. My energy has been the worst this week but I think that is mainly due to been ill and still not sleeping well! She is still moving around loads especially when I lay down! The movements are slightly different and now consist of knees and elbows poking out of my belly :D 

I also had my 31 week midwife appointment this week.. a couple of days early. Everything was perfect, baby girl is measuring spot on as normal. My blood pressure was a little higher than normal but that was due to the stress of this week so nothing to worry about. We also got to hear baby girls heartbeat again. We had to ask as my midwife doesn't listen to it as a routine thing... does yours? It was 142 beats per minute and truly is the best sound in the world. Me and Mark both recorded it on our phones so we can listen whenever we want. We have an at home doppler but it isn't very clear.

I'm hoping to feel better next week and put all the stress behind me and start preparing more for our little girl to arrive :D

Thanks for reading,

  1. Glad the midwife went well lovely! I am surprised that she doesn't check at each appointment. Mine did it everytime I saw her. It is lovely that you have it recorded!

    You make me so broody missy! hehe xxx

    1. :D A lot of people that I spoke to said that their midwife checks the heartbeat at every appointment. It says in my notes though that its not a routine thing they check :( Only heard it twice so far. But now we have the recording its lovely hehe. Xx

  2. Congratulations babe!!! NOT LONG NOW... EEK! Yeah mine checks at every appointment, I thought it was routine =\ make sure you ask at every appointment then. Take it easy babe - Remember Karma xxx
