I had my 36 week midwife appointment on Monday which went really well. All was ok with my urine, blood pressure (110/60) and my general well being. My bump was measuring a week ahead at 37cm which I was really surprised about; I don't think it's really grown if I'm honest. He was also head down still and to my surprise again 2/5ths engaged! I know this doesn't mean much for second pregnancies, and he's probably popped out by now, but it's still exciting and a step in the right direction.
This week I've had constant strong braxton hicks and pretty intense lighting pain. Not a day goes past now where I don't get a few braxton hicks in a row now. They're still not painful but they really take my breath away and stop me in my tracks. The lightning is bloody painful though haha. I'll just be walking along when it suddenly feels like he's going to fall out.
His movements are still pretty strong which is great. I've noticed he gets hiccups quite a lot too which if I'm honest, are slightly annoying haha. Especially as he seems to get them when I wake up in the middle of the night to wee (which is becoming a routine of around 2am and 5am).
My bags are finally packed and ready to go, and we're going to install the car seat base back into the car this week. The only thing we need to get is the moses basket off of my sister and then we're completely ready. Let the baby eviction plans commence haha!
