5 weeks to go!!
How far along: 35 weeks 2 days
How much do I weigh: 59,7 kg (+ 10 kg)
Baby size: Honeydew melon, my baby might weigh around 2,8kg now?
Belly size: The circumference (2cm under the belly button) is 101 cm and from top to bottom it’s 42 cm
Belly button in or out: Out/Even
Sleep: Getting up once a night to pee, other than that quite OK except when I’m awake for 2-3 hours and can’t get back to sleep. Happens every now and again.
Food (non) cravings: Sweets, chocolate pudding
Symptoms: heartburn, can’t sleep
Stretch marks: none yet
Linea negra: it starts under my boobs and is about 10 cm long
Miss anything: Maybe some time for myself? My little toddler is in his mommy-phase right now again, very clingy. Also he’s in his NO-phase which is very exhausting. So cute though, now he wants that mommy and daddy bring him to bed.
Looking forward to: next OB Gyn appointment in a few days, warm weather which is starting today, registering in two hospitals, I wonder what they say about VBAC.
Best/Worst happenings this week: Got tested positive for Streptococcus B (GBS), which means I’ll get antibiotics during birth. I’m taking uvula suppositories now three times a week to reduce the bacterium. I talked with my doctor and midwife, it sounds like this is quite common and nothing to worry (of course I worried when I heard that and googled much too much). I will register at another hospital soon where the pediatricians have on-call duty 24 hours a day.
Other than that I have my prenatal class once a week which is nice, it’s nice to hear everything about giving birth, contractions, hospitals etc. again after three years and it’s nice to just focus on me and the baby.
My little Q is sick. Threw up six times within four hours on Friday, slept a lot on Saturday morning, then felt good and even ate but became a fever and running nose in the eve. Poor baby boy, I hate it when he’s sick 🙁
Movement: Daily, lots, very intense and painful at times. Baby’s back is on the right side of my belly most of the time
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, I’m feeling quite good
Sports: Lifting weights twice a week. I will pause starting April 1st
