This week I've had all my usual symptoms... heartburn and feeling tired. Something different I have noticed this week is that my appetite isn't as good as it has been. I don't really want to eat (I do obviously) and don't really get hungry. Before I used to have to eat every couple of hours to stop me from passing out. I am still trying to snack to keep my energy levels up. Baby girl is still kicking and moving up a storm and really hurts sometimes but I'm just enjoying it as I know I will defiantly miss feeling her move and her sweet little hiccups.
I also had a midwife appointment this week. My blood pressure was a little low and I was measuring a week behind what I should be but my midwife didn't seem worried. One good thing is that baby girls head is 4/5th engaged. She is getting ready and is making a move in the right direction which is very exciting, if not a little scary! I asked the midwife and she said that it explains the pinching pains I've experienced from last couple of weeks which are still happening but at least I now know what it is and it's a good thing :D I also got to hear baby girls heartbeat again! It really is the best sound in the world!
We are getting the car seat next week and doing some shopping for the hospital bag just incase she decides to come early. We will then have the basic things we need just in case. We won't have the pram until my due date but figure if she does come early then we won't want to be out and about that much at first anyway. We are having our antenatal class and hospital tour in the next couple of days... a post will be coming up on this next week :D
What did you find useful in your hospital bag? Any tips?
