Well! What a difference from last week! Think we deserved some time off and have some enjoyment!! Done loads of things this week- seen family, proper friends, been shopping, chilled out and we watched Jurassic World which is frigging awesome!! Recommend if you haven’t but also take tissues!! 😂😂 We also had a midwife appointment on Tuesday and she checked size of the baby and all the usual tests. She said baby is already in the right position for birth so I don’t think she will be too long from appearing if I’m honest!!! I’m only 32 weeks now but yes I’m huge, she’s big and if she’s already in the right place then who knows!! We’ve been at a birth class today which is why I’m late typing this up haha but now I know when I’m in labour and what to do, also I’ve wrote up my birth plan…no nature bullshit bollocks here haha!! I want every form of pain relief I can get!!!! Oh and I really hate how much pressure they put on you to breastfeed!!!! I personally don’t want to do it. I’m not even interested in giving it a go. Sorry but it’s my preference and my body. You should do what you want to do. My mum didn’t do it with me as she didn’t want to either. It’s like all this being vegan shit. If that’s what you want to do- great, do it! But don’t force your views and what you do onto other people and try and make them feel shit for not doing so! Same as Jehovah’s witnesses. You believe in what you like but please don’t knock on my door to tell me what I should think. Live life how you want! Anyway after the hour of breastfeeding talk, (which by the way, formula feeding wasn’t even mentioned apart from if you’d need to if your baby was premature and underweight….) they were demonstrating how to change a nappy and about sleep time. Obviously with my profession I didn’t need to listen to any of that shit so we left! Was there for 3 hours and I only listened to about an hour of it haha! Sorry but sat in a hot room, listening to stuff I don’t need to know, on a really uncomfortable chair where my back felt like it was going to snap, when I’ve worked with babies for 10 years- I got bored haha! Don’t get me wrong though, I totally get it if you’ve never really been around babies and the midwife was lovely! I had fun bouncing about on a core ball though!! Made me miss the gym!!! Never thought I’d say that hahahahaha! I’m going to buy one now so when I start getting contractions, I can sit on that! I can use it afterwards for sit ups! 🤪
Other than that, this week seriously has been needed. The only thing else I’d say is that I’m knackered today. I think I slept for about two hours last night which is annoying because I changed all the bed, (nothing beats fresh sheets for me) I’d had a bath and washed my hair, the bedroom was nice and cool and I had the fan on but no…sciatica and acid reflux again. Terrible!! I’ve had acid reflux now for 12 hours. I’ve taken gaviscon, rennies and Tesco’s own version and no. Still not going!! I’m sat here half asleep so I’m sorry if I’m not making any sense anywhere lol! I wouldn’t mind but I had another pregnancy massage on Monday but it’s not helped this time. I think it’s because of how big I am! I’ve also been suffering with my right foot. I tore 5 ligaments in my ankle when I was pissed about two years ago, (that’s what happens when you wear massive heels and jump around like a lunatic to guns n roses 😂) and now I’m bigger and my feet are swelling- it’s like my foot can’t take the pressure so it’s hurting!!! I’ve also had shooting sensations down below which aren’t bloody nice and yesterday- I had a sharp l, pinch like pain in my right nipple! I’m just googling everything lol as not sure on what else to do! All is normal though! I think I’ve been having some Braxton Hicks contractions but it’s been ever so minor period pain for a couple of minutes and then it’s gone for about 5/6ish hours. I can cope with period pain as horrendous as I get them but also you know, doctors thought I had endometriosis and I’d never been given pain relief for them up until last year when they prescribed me mefenamic acid and even then- I still suffer! It’s more when the ‘ring of fire’ or ‘tear’ gets mentioned I die a little inside! 😂😂
Right I’m going to have to get some rest as I’m literally fighting my eyes and I’m not winning! I need sleep!!!! Til next time….
