Well, I am absolutely, bone, dog, tired.  No energy whatsoever :(   And am getting really, really, really fed up!!!.........

BP is higher than usual - 120/78 - not high, but high for me.

Also, a little protein in urine, which has been on and off for months now.

I had my 32 week scan today, and baby is measuring above average - legs are sooooo long, lol!

Because of the meds I am on, I was told the baby could have a low birth weight, but I was told today, they estimate my baby to weigh 5lbs 1oz already!!

WITH ABOUT SEVEN WEEKS TO GO!!!

So, even if he puts the minimum of 1/2 pound on per week, he's going to be around 8.5 pounds when born, but he's growing FAST, and I mean FAST, so he'll probably weight more than that....and here was me worrying all the clothes we've bought are size 0-3 months and not newborn - At this rate, he'll be straight in to the 0-3 months clothes, and I doubt they'll fit him for long!

He is also breech, has been for a while, and for the first time (in all the scans I've had), there's too much water around him, so now I have to go for a test for Gestational Diabetes - Please don't let me have that too, I've not had an easy pregnancy by any means.....please please please don't let me have that too! :(

So, it looks like a c-section for me.  Which doesn't bother me, as long as baby is ok.  I have to go back to the hospital tomo to discuss a birth plan (pain in the a*s! - Parking is terrible there!).  I am having a c-section unless I present in "advanced" labour - anything less, and a c-section it is.
With the size of him, that's probably going to be a good thing, lol!

Am under strict orders to do light duties only from now on too, so either hubby does the cleaning, or I get a cleaner in - Can't do it - I've been told by the Consultant, lol!  
At least I can put my feet up for the next 7 weeks of pregnancy, and then for the 6 weeks after the c-section = 13 weeks of relaxing, bliss!

And I need it, I've never felt so tired, worn out, and low in my life!  All I want is to feel happy, and I am, but can't shake these low emotional moods, which I think are directly related to how worn out I feel.

Oh well, feet up time!......

.........And she was very happy with us both!

Max's heartbeat is VERY strong, bless him, and he's measuring right, as well as having a boxing match in there!!

My BP if fine, and no protein in Urine, so all is good.

I've had a few problems, mainly with extreme fatigue - Finding household chores especially hard.  May be cos I'm an "older" Mum!, and I have a lot of pain in both shoulders, which hinders me.

So, to say I'm an older Mum, and this is our first Baby, this pregnancy has been pretty much plain sailing - No complications like they try to frighten you with, which I am very pleased about.

So, roll on 8 1/2 weeks - Max will be here, we'll have moved in to our new home, and his Nursery will be newly decorated and set up, with all of his lovely stuff in - CAN NOT WAIT!!!!

Well, today we travelled to Leeds for our 4D Scan, and it was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!

We got to see our Baby's features SO CLEARLY!!  Unbelievable!

We got 50 photo's, a DVD of him moving around, a Teddy Bear with a recording of his heartbeat, and a free photo shoot once he's born!  Well worth the £175!!!  

I attach a photo - I'd like to post all 50, but this site won't allow it, lol!

All in all, a VERY happy day!  :)

Last few days, well weeks, but last few days have been awful.  

I've had Restless Legs (RLS) when going to bed, and it's getting worse!  I didn't get to sleep till gone 1am last night, and was up at 5am with it - So now it's stopping me going to sleep and waking me up! - That surely can't be good for me or Baby!!??

I'm sooo tired, I don't know what to do - All I know is, I can't carry on like this.

Any idea's anyone, pls!? x
