33 Weeks Pregnancy Update


WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING THIS WEEK?
The weather has been SO hot this week for us and a bit too hot for me, especially going on school runs every morning and afternoon. Having days like this I am just praying these next few weeks just fly by now. I went to hospital on Thursday with reduced movements and I got quite worried. But as we were on our way to hospital he started kicking and moving. We waited 2 hours to be seen and I was put on the monitor and he was happy and safe thankfully. 

HOW I AM FEELING
I've been feeling really tired and too hot this week. In the evenings I really struggle to relax after the girls have gone to bed. Usually me and my partner will sit on the sofa to have food and catch up on the soaps but I get restless legs and feel really uncomfortable so I am forever moving around and it does really annoy me.

APPOINTMENTS
I had my normal monitoring on Tuesday and Friday. All was good. I also had my weekly bloods done too. Next week I have my growth scan.

OBSTETRIC CHOLESTASIS
If you read last week's pregnancy update you may have seen that my itching had gone worse and it made sense that my bile acids had risen from 7 to 40 in just a week! My bile acids are now down to 18 which is good but still raised. I am still itching a lot during the day and night. I think it will be constant there now until baby is born. 

BABY BOY
MOVEMENTS - He scared me on Thursday but since then he has been moving loads. His kicks are getting stronger and stronger each day. 

SYMPTOMS

- Restless legs
- Uncomfortable
- Tiredness

SLEEPING
I have to sleep with a fan on! The itching isn't as bad as the other week but it's still there. I still itch during the night and before I go to sleep but at least I can catch up on sleep this time. I really struggle to get out of bed now and it doesn't help that I am making extra trips to the toilet either. I get really achey and so uncomfortable during the night.

  5. You look fabulous and it's very nearly time. Hopefully we'll get some lovely cool breezes to help you out this summer. Ice lollies, that's what I lived on during the summer when I was pregnant :)
