Third trimester 30 weeks

Butterfly93 profile image

OMG can’t believe how fast this pregnancy is going 🤰🏽

Honestly I am over the moon !

Just giving you all a update who’s been following my journey, I’m seeing my midwife again next week then the following week Consultant appointment.

So far so well, however some days my mood does dip but I think that’s due to the fact that I have bipolar. In terms of sleep I’ve been trying to aim for 8/9 hours at night however this doesn’t happen consistently as I wake more throughout the night to use the toilet , eat or sometimes just damnnnn right uncomfortable 😣

I try to endure I have daily naps for while my daughter is at school, also been going for walks when possible depending on the weather 😝

Anywho I’ll leave it there don’t want to bore you too much 😂 xx

Peace ✌🏾

Hi Butterfly93,

I am pleased you sound so well overall. Yes, this time of the year its difficult to go out for nice walks, I manage a bit better later on in the season when I am already resigned that the weather is going to be mostly bad and the windows of only 40% chance of rain are golden :)

Are you managing your appointments over the phone or do you get some face to face? How exciting for you that this pregnancy has gone so quickly. I am sure you are so keen to meet your baby.

Thanks for the updates, I am taking notes for when (if :)) my time comes, take care

Unfortunately I didn’t sleep well, woke up quite hormonal. I’ve had a nap, but had a really big cry moment to the other half xx

Oh I’m really sorry to hear you didn’t sleep well Butterfly93.

It’s very hard to get comfortable and wake up with hormones are all over the place. It’s sometimes good to cry to release emotions and so comforting to share with your other half. Take it easy today .. thinking of you xx

Hey Lilybeth

I had a few rocky days, therefore my husband has taken some annual leave to spend more time at home . However I’m getting back on my feet and feeling better mentally again. Probably hormones or the bipolar. I am seeing my consultant in person tomorrow, hopefully it goes well my midwife appointment had to changed this week coming . Thank you for checking on me as as always I appreciate it 💛

Hi Butterfly93

So sorry to hear you had a few rocky days but your husband was there for you. More than enough challenges for you so I hope things are settling but try to rest. I hope seeing your consultant in person tomorrow will be reassuring, 💛

Hi Butterfly93

Good to hear you’re okay now with your husband’s comforting support.

All the best for tomorrow ... do you think writing things down to ask the consultant might help? I was always nervous in front of professionals and things I wanted to ask went out of my head!

Thinking of you 💛

Butterfly93 in reply to Lilybeth

Hey hun I’m already one step ahead, me and my husband have sat down and written all the questions I hope to ask the consultant tomorrow . Trust me I know how it feels sometimes they can be quite patronising these professionals xx

Hi Butterfly93

I hope all goes well tomorrow and that you feel reassured with the answers to your questions.

Sorry to hear that you had a few rough days. I do think you have been doing marvellous. Its great to hear how supportive your husband is and that he could take a couple days off work.

I think if you can be flexible like that when you hit a blip then it certainly takes the pressure off.

I would say try not to panic when your mood alters as it is normal in all pregnancies but if it doesn't pass after several days certainly get in touch with your perinatal team or whomever cares for you as I'm sure they would rather chat with you even if its just for reassurance

Look after yourself

Hey Teresa !

Aww thanks hun 😊

I’m feeling better now, he’s my golden egg don’t know what I’ll do without him !

I’ll definitely try to be more flexible within myself. It’s true the mood does change within pregnancy even with people who have no mental health illness.

Thanks xx

Update you all tomorrow
