So we just had our 35th week check up and it feels like Ive been pregnant for such a long time. I feel like Im ready haha.. According to the ultrasound shes 2.5 kgs (5.5 lbs) and still gaining 1/2 a pound per week. And the big news were waiting for as well is that shes finally head down! Yey! Been doing birth ball exercises and even tried the ice pack trick and Im glad it worked!
Ive had my Group B Strep test as well which is a test for a common bacteria often carried from the intestines to the lower genital tract. Although harmless to me, it could cause harm to the baby so they had to test me and if positive, which commonly the case, theyd give me antibiotic during labor. We were also briefed about hospital procedures in case I go to labor early from here on, and tbh its became even more real to us that shes arriving soon after the briefing! I also need to get tested for Covid-19 I think in the 2 weeks which is our next appointment, so thats our 37th week! Whew!
I was doing a bit of computation as well on what size shes going to be according to the weeks left, around 38th week shed be 6.5 lbs.. and Im like ok I can do that haha.. Hayden was 7.4 lbs when he was born at 38 weeks. Ok I hope shes not bigger or anything.. 😅 I was advised to walk 1hr a day as well to help with the big day and also to stop taking my calcium vitamins because it relaxes the uterus and we dont want that, we want them contractions coming!😱 So yea, while I try to micromanage everything, I know its not possible to have it down a tee so prayers and keeping my fingers crossed that everything goes to plan. 🙏🏼
Well deserved coffee after my walk.. We passed by a baby shop after as well and since it was still early, we were the only ones there and thought it would be a great idea to shop! Brian was so excited he bought loads of clothes and I took some soft toys as well. Feels so good to be out and shop! Went to the grocery as well very quickly to pick up some pork supplies hehe.. we havent been to the grocery physically since March before the lockdown. Like WOW. I know its only little things but it was so nice to be out and about doing stuff.
And lastly for this bump-date, we got this baby sticker for our family car and its so cute!!
