Sunday (the day I turned 31 weeks pregnant) I experienced the worst braxton hicks EVER! There were super painful and I had to have a long hot bath to get rid of them - the only reason I knew they weren't actual contractions! My midwife agreed that's what they were and said it was probably a combination of that and his position, and said I definitely need to take it easy from now on.
I saw my midwife on Wednesday and all was really well with baby. He's still head down, although she said he's laying slightly more across than straight down. He was being a monkey and wouldn't let her get a clear heartbeat, although you could hear it in the background (148bpm). My belly measured 31.5cm which was perfect as was all the other checks.
The only negative of the appointment was that my blood results came back saying I have low iron - so I'm not just tired, I'm anaemic too! She said this could also be the reason for my breathlessness. She said it's just on the border for tablets, so for now I'm just to boost it myself with an iron rich diet and to take spatone or something similar.
Apart from that all is well and I'm just experiencing the normal symptoms you'd expect for being this pregnant. Tired, achy and needing the loo constantly haha. I feel huge now and even my midwife agreed I'd had a growth spurt - and proceeded to tell me he felt a 'good size' while giving me a look haha. Get your guesses in now for his birth weight; we're all thinking 9lb+!
