So in 10 weeks or so baby will be here, which is nerve wracking in itself, but its the labor thats really getting me worried. Im terrible with pain anyways, goodness knows how im going to cope with labor. Next week i get another scan (at 32 weeks) to check on my placenta. Im not too worried about it as i was told it was only slightly in the way, and it was more than likely that it would move. So hopefully all is well! I would rather go through a natural birth than have a c section. Especially with my first.
I feel like my mind is under estimating how much my body is going to go through as well, as i keep dreaming about labor experiances and they are always quick. Yes they are painful but i really do not think its going to be quick. I took 16.5 hrs to come into this world, and if im anything like my mother......
I think Im also getting worried as people keep saying to me "oh you will be early, look at the size of you!" i must not carry my bump well or something. And its not like im measuring too big. Midwife is happy with my size and im measuring what i should be. Im just getting annoyed with it! Plus when im made to think baby will arrive early, I just think 'well that will come with its own complications.'
And the nesting.....i have my daily routine of dishes, hoovering, and laundry. and each day i pick something that needs cleaning. today was the bathroom. I dont mind the nesting as i take comfort in knowing im getting things ready. the other day i went through all of baby's thing and realised that we have a lot more than what i thought, Which was another weight lifted. Car seat is on its way, moses basket, pram, cot....have all been sorted for a while now. Ive also decided to try breastfeeding as if i dont at least try, i will kick myself. So things are on track but im not quite ready for him to show up yet as things arent quite ready yet. But almost.
I also need to contact my health visitor...again, as when i was sent my first appointment in the post, i couldnt make the appointment as i was still working at the time. When i rang, i was told that she couldnt find the folder of appointments and would call me back to rearrange, well i waited all afternoon and nothing, so i rang up the next day and i asked when my rescheduled appointment would be, the lady i spoke to that day had been told that my appointment had already been rescheduled when i first called (which it hadnt) so she apologised and said the lady i previously spoke to didnt usually do that job, so she wasnt sure what she was doing. I was told i would get fitted in with the next set of appointments that she was going to do , and would get sent a letter confirming my new appointment.....that must have been 3 weeks ago now....maybe 4. I have been busy, this time last week i was in scotland seeing my family but still no letter. So i really must call tomorrow.
Sorry about this post, it is a bit muddled. Im half asleep, watching a film with the man, as hes waiting for his wrestling to start (yawn) and i just thought i would post an update. At least i know baby is happy and healthy, its like ive got an alien in there lol i love watching my bump move tho, its fascinating! Anyways, hope everyone is doing well!
