These past few weeks I have also seen an increase in movements and I am now getting beaten up from the inside again, usually when I am trying to sleep. However there was an episode last week when I had some cramping and pain low down, so much so that I had to go to bed because I felt really unwell. By morning it had stopped so I am putting that down to either Braxton Hicks or just an upset tummy.
Hello, third trimester and the home stretch!
Today I am 28 weeks and 2 days pregnant so I thought it was about time to give a quick update.
Over the past couple of months I have had a fair few visits to the physiotherapist with lower back pain. I have now been supplied with a back support and a tubigrip support so I can switch between the two depending on what activity I am doing. My next appointment is on the 4th January because I have been told as I get bigger my back might also get a lot worse. Great Fun.
A few days ago I had my midwife appointment where I was given another blood test and weighed. I am 71.3 kg which is a fair big change from the 63 kg I started with at my first appointment, but that is normal.
My bump was also measured and it turns out I am measuring a week ahead. I knew I looked a bit bigger this time around, but I hope it is just how the baby is positioned.
Now we are coming up to Christmas and the New Year which is just crazy, this pregnancy is flying by. I am extremely excited though to eat lots of lovely food over this festive period and not worry for once about putting weight on.
I’m just getting bigger anyway.
