32 Weeks Pregnancy Update


WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING THIS WEEK?
I didn't write my 31 week pregnancy update last week because if I am 100% honest, I was shattered. I was fed up with the hospital appointments and I got a little fed up of blogging. Not so fed up that I wanted to quit though. I just can never get comfortable and after sitting down and waiting for hours and hours in the hospital, I really couldn't bare sitting down for hours on a laptop trying to do work. 


For some reason this week has been a tougher week but I have still been blogging and trying my best to catch up on blog work and reach my deadlines with sponsored and guest posts too. I have really struggled this week with tiredness and OC symptoms. I was in hospital on Tuesday for just over 6 hours. It was ridiculous, I understand that they can get very busy but I felt it wasn't that fair I had to wait over two whole hours in a tiny waiting room with a tiny window that wasn't even open. Then it was lucky that I had gone up to ask the midwife how long I would have to wait because her response seemed like she had no idea I was there. 

We also went for a 4D babybond scan in Chester which was just amazing. It was really worth the money and we are so glad we went. We also got to take the girls with us. 

HOW I AM FEELING
As I said above, I am feeling really tired this week. I had bad nights on Friday and Saturday. Elliw waking up in the middle of the night and extremely early and earlier each morning. I also had a sleepless night Sunday night due to OC and haven't been good since.

APPOINTMENTS
I had my appointment for CTG and bloods on Tuesday. It was a long day. I am missing Friday because I felt like I needed one break from the hospital and plus I didn't have to stress over babysitters. 

OBSTETRIC CHOLESTASIS
Some of my bloods have risen. The itch has come back and it's making me feel very uncomfortable, upset and really stressed. My emotions are all over the place. It's also making me quite ill too. On Sunday night I only had 2 hours sleep. The 2 hours I had to sleep, Elliw woke me up around 6-7am and so from then on I was very itchy and could not get back to sleep. I have been able to sleep the nights after this but waking up every now and then itching and waking up early. 

BABY BOY
MOVEMENTS - He moves a lot still. There are a few hours during the day where he is really lazy and sometimes I think of phoning up but right that minute he starts kicking me hard again! 

SYMPTOMS

- Restless legs
- Uncomfortable
- Tiredness

SLEEPING
I am finding very hard to get comfortable in bed at the moment and especially with itching it is making it worse.

CRAVINGS
Ice lollies!

  2. Hope you manage to get some rest soon, blogging is a choice and if you don't feel like you want to do it, don't feel like you need to justify yourself. I'm sure you've got a lot more on your mind.

    It'll be worth it in the end!

  9. I often think back on my pregnancies with rose tinted glasses but then I read something like this and realise that at the time it is exhausting. I don't miss the leg cramps I used to get at 4am.

  12. Oh no hun sorry to hear that your itching is bad and that you are having barely any sleep. AS for having to wait six hours in the hospital that is so bad and I can see why you did not have the energy to blog.

  14. Oh bless you the itching is still bad huh? I'm so sorry Beth, that is rubbish! I always found that I was so exhausted at the beginning of a pregnancy (first 0-16 weeks) and then exhausted again from 30 weeks plus... it's so tough with little ones too! H x

  24. I saw some of your bad nights on the bump group - feel so bad for you chick as no sleep is just a killer when you are getting towards the end of the pregnancy. Try and rest, plenty of lollies!! Hope you can manage until the end - so not long now xx #fartglitter

  25. Boo- big hugs! The last semester is not fun even without the extra rubbish symptoms you've got. I hope the last bit goes quickly for you. Keep focused on those scan pics- that's your goal in there xxx

  27. Oh dear, I really feel for you lovely. It doesnt sound like a very good week at all. Really hoping next week is a better week for you. Sometimes there are just really rubbish and difficult weeks in pregnancy, especially this late into it. Fingers crossed you get some better days soon. Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays despite everything! Emily x
