On our 3 day break we walked a lot. Around this time last year I walked a lot but then I stopped, I am not sure why because I really enjoyed walking. I do struggle walking a fair distance at the moment because I just feel so heavy and get out of breath quickly. Our third day we visited Sain Fagans, which again was unplanned but turned out to be a fantastic day. We spent roughly 3-4 hours of walking with a few little breaks in between. After that we had a 4 hour car journey back home, which also tired us all out.
On our stay I had noticed on the Monday Baby boy hardly moved. I felt a few kicks here and there which totalled up to about 10 or less during the day but he usually moves a lot more than that. The following morning he moved a bit more but still not as much. Since arriving home he has been moving around and kicking all day, so I think because I have been so busy those three days I may have just not realised baby boy moving or kicking as much. I also used a home Doppler, not to hear the heartbeat but to hear Baby boy moving and I could hear him very clear and then without trying heard his healthy heartbeat.
I had no appointments this week, I cancelled my midwife appointment to take bloods because we had an extra night in Cardiff so was unable to go. But I have my GTT (diabetes) blood test and OC blood test next Wednesday. Which I will update you all next Friday.
The only symptoms I have had this week really is extremely sore breasts and shoulder pain which I looked up and says it is very normal. Our three day break has tired me out a lot but no relaxing when you have two other kids to look after, is there? Mia will be at her Dad's Friday evening until Saturday evening so I am hoping to start sorting out the girls toys and start on Baby boy's nursery during the day on Saturday (if Elliw will let me!). The other symptom I have been getting is some tightening's which I am guessing is the start of Braxton hicks. They can be quite uncomfortable.
