I had my midwife appointment this week where I was 28 weeks and 3 days. Is it just me who gets excited for these appointments haha? It was lovely to see her, and even nicer that even though this is my second pregnancy, she's seeing me for the same amount as if it was my first.
Everything was perfect; his heartbeat was 144bpm, my blood pressure was 108/72 and my urine was fine. She had a feel and confirmed he's head down with him bum sticking under my ribs on the right (although I'm not sure if he's turned since then). She took my bloods which Indiana really enjoyed watching haha and I've got my whooping cough jab booked for Thursday. She measured my bump for the first time and I'm so happy it's measuring perfectly at 28cm!
Now I know he's head down I can definitely feel it. I've been getting 'lightning' type pains throughout the week which I did not miss haha. His bum has been really pushing against my skin too and it's quite painful (you can feel him if you touch my bump!).
Only 5 more days left at work now although I'm feeling done already. After a 9-7 shift on my feet all day yesterday I had really bad pains in my bump, and my feet were killing me! I'm back at work today but think it's definitely time to ask for a chair as I just cannot do it anymore.
Next week we'll be on the proper countdown and I can't believe it. We are so relaxed this time and should probably start buying things and thinking of names!
