30 Weeks Pregnancy Update


WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING THIS WEEK?
Not much has happened this week other than my usual twice a week appointments at the hospital. Both appointments were very slow and extremely late so I am feeling very drained and exhausted this week. I've struggled to keep on top of the blog but I am trying! 

One exciting thing that did happen this was the wonderful post. I received the stunning UPPAbaby Vista pram which I am in love with. I also received the Nomi Highchair from Evomove which I am yet to build up. So excited when it is up though. 



HOW I AM FEELING
I have been feeling drained as I said above because of the hospital appointments. My eldest has been a handful this week and it's really stressed me out but that is the joys of parenting isn't it. I have a few thoughts and worries on my mind which I may tell my consultant at my next appointment with her in the middle of June. But at the moment I am going to write everything down.

APPOINTMENTS
I've just had my normal CTG and blood appointments this week. No extras. Next week I have my liver scan on Monday and again, the CTG and bloods Tuesday and just CTG on Friday.

OBSTETRIC CHOLESTASIS
My bloods are really improving. My ALT's are still a little raised but my bile acids are down to 7 which is fantastic! It shows my urso tablets are really helping. I still feel the itch but I shouldn't complain as it is very mild and compared to the girls, this is nothing. So I am happy with that.

HOW THE GIRLS FEEL
The girls are still super excited. Mia felt baby move the other day and I think she was a little confused but she loved it.


BABY BOY
MOVEMENTS - Baby boy moves a lot, especially during late morning and evening. He also moves in the middle of the night when I wake up for being uncomfortable. His movements are getting stronger each week.

SYMPTOMS

- Stomach pains
- Constipation {fun eh!}
- Sore breasts
- Chest pains
- Light headedness 
- Tiredness/Loss of energy
- Restless Legs

SLEEPING
I really struggle to get to sleep at night now. I just can never get into that right position! 

CRAVINGS
Milky Ways! 

WEIGHT JOURNEY
I thought I would add this one back as I only have 10 weeks left until my due date. I started back at Slimming World roughly Jan/Feb time and I have gained 1 stone 6 lbs since. I have missed 2 weeks and in that time I only gained half a pound which I was very happy about.

  1. Hope you're managing to put your feet up a bit! I remember getting to week 30 and feeling totally drained and unable to get comfortable at night - I ended up cuddling the huge breast-feeding pillow I had and propping myself up with 5 pillows as I had acid reflux! #justanotherlinky

  2. Great idea to wrote everything down before your apt with the consultant. I used to be terrible and would instantly forget all my questions the second I sat down! Hope you're able to rest a little. Not long now! ;)
    Thanks for hosting #justanotherlinky
