Thuper i wouldn't worry about them comments my sister in law does slimmingword and she's in great shape from it I wish I could stick to it I would say it's more healthy eating not starving yourself probably is great for baby and think your scans prove that he's growing perfectly
carseat looks great Rebecca probably made the right choice if Your not going to be using it much and make the most of your pushchair I intend on doing the same i may be lazy on school run thou and just attach the carseat but for everything else will probably use pushchair with carrycot xx

Growing well Rebecca. Love your dress too, I have a similar one with short sleeved and it is SO comfy!
Hubby comes home tonight after being away for 2 weeks. Be interesting to see if he thinks I've grown. I feel like I have!

Ooooh exciting :) be good to see what he thinks!
thankyou the dress is from h&m basics it’s stretchy and beven saving my life recently x

Hubby did think I'd expanded while he's been away, as did a friend I saw today who I've not seen for a couple of weeks.

I keep having the 'how can you get any bigger!' comments. Well, I'm only 30 weeks so, somehow I'm sure I will get bigger.
I'm off to see the midwife today for a check up as I'm flying to a family wedding in Ireland and need a fit to fly letter. Its only a 45min flight but better to be safe than sorry.
Leg cramps are starting & midwife says I have Pelvic Girdle Pain so sleeping at the moment is a nightmare.
Only 10 weeks to go though until my beautiful little lady arrives so it's all worth it!
How is everyone feeling? (Please say tired and huge so I know i'm not on my own!! haha)

Hey Shan, sorry you've got PGP, it's RUBBISH isnt it 😔 I highly recommend a Dream Genii pillow for comfort sleep. I'm with you on the feeling tired. Not feeling too huge yet but some days I feel heavy, if that makes sense?
Enjoy the family wedding! x

Went to see the Dr yesterday and they told me I had pelvic girdle so have referred me to the physio I also can't sleep at night and it hurt when I try and turn over at night, iv got a giant maternity pillow that helps a lot, I'm just glad it's cold outside and not hot or I couldn't use the pillow...got the scan today at 3 to review water around baby will let you guys know how it goes x
12/10/2017 at 11:41
Good luck for the scan Rebecca. Good to hear they've referred your for physio as well - I had awful trouble getting any help when I had it in my last pregnancy!
12/10/2017 at 12:02
Good luck Rebecca, let us know. Lou x
12/10/2017 at 14:23
Good luck Rebecca hope everything's ok.
Hope you have a nice time in Ireland shan.
Hope the PGP eases for you all, I haven't got it but do need to tip toe sometimes as I'm in pain when I walk and that's bad enough so feel for you as I could imagine it's alot worse for you all..
12/10/2017 at 14:57
Good luck for your scan today rebecca
hope you have a lovely time in Ireland Shan
your defo not the only one I also feel tired and huge thinking she must be sitting high shes starting to squish my ribs been feeling sickly today and could defo do with a nap but time to pick the children up sure they will wake me up 😊 Xx

I'm feeling big as well and abit sick and tired today as well! I'm lucky not to have any pelvic girdle but it is just becoming SO heavy all the time.
She totally shifted position yesterday so my belly now feels a different shape which is weird lol.
She seems to be high up and have had to take loads of deep breaths today where she's squeezing my lungs. I have midwife on Monday so going to ask what position she's in as I'm useless as working out whats where!! Other than that though I'm still enjoying pregnancy - think I'll actually miss my bump when it's gone lol x

So the water has increased :( got to go back in 2 weeks for another scan to see if it's increased again :/ from what they find at the next scan they will make a decision on what happens next...they basically said they would induce me most likely....his weight is about 3 pound at the moment and they estimate he will be about 9 pound if they let me go till the end they also said his tummy is rather large for his gestation but all the other growth related checks they did are normal ...to top off the not so good news when I got in I went for a wee and there's a drop of blood on the toilet roll :/ do I phone somone? Should I wait see if there's more? :( x
12/10/2017 at 18:07
Sorry to hear it wasn't the best news Rebecca, but at least they're keeping a close eye on you.
Re the blood, always better to be safe than sorry, you don't want to be fretting about that too, so give the maternity unit a call.
Big hugs xxx
13/10/2017 at 11:05
Rebecca - did you call the hospital about the blood?
13/10/2017 at 11:32
No I rang up and they said that I should just call back if there's more, it was literally a drop and they seemed happy enough that they had seen bsby and done all the tests about half an hour earlier, there's been nothing since, could have been a cut some how? At the midwife at 12 so will ask her about it x
13/10/2017 at 11:45
Yeah if they aren't concerned wouldnt be anything to worry about. That's good news xx
13/10/2017 at 12:50
Glad blood wasn't anything to worry about Rebecca.
I've got an MRI of baby's brain in a couple of hours, as part of one of the studies I'm taking part in. Rather excited! I'm hoping I will get some images from it but don't know if I will it not.
