    :sick:
    Mentioned it to the midwife on friday, she sed its coz the head is down and babys getting bigger so will get aches and sharp digs etc and to look out for any leaking water or blood etc

    Braxtons r stronger nowadays which she sed is common from now onwards Told me to get a birthday ball and do exercise on it to relive hip pains and that

    Feel like i have trippled in size this week :shock:
    So uncomfortable

    Just take it easy @Baby Ali i was convinced my contractions were braxton hicks luckily I went in for reduced movements really as other wise I’d have gone home and kept labouring away.

    I’ve not had any Braxton hicks so far but this is my first baby so I’m guessing it’s normal to have them and also not have them? I’m 36 weeks +2 now.

    yes take it easy @Baby Ali

    Well today my hubby wanted to put out Christmas decorations up in case the little one decides to make an early appearance and whilst I felt relatively alright. I’ve enjoyed it but it hasn’t half taken it out of me. He has helped a lot with putting the tree up etc and decorating the top of the tree but it’s still taken me around 6-7 hours to do! My back is absolutely killing me :-( the house looks nice and festive now though ready for S/he to arrive.

    Ok so this morning I had my midwife appointment and my bump was measuring bigger last time but today it’s shot up even more above the 90th centile so I’m booked in for a growth scan tomorrow at 5.50pm ekkk! Everything else seems fine but I can’t help but worry about it.

    Also went for my consultant appointment this afternoon but saw a SHO and... SHE BOOKED ME IN FOR MY SECTION! I feel so relieved and happy. We finally have a date and something to look forward to. Our baby will be born on 17th December 2019. I had previously hoped for 13th December because it is a special date for me but 17th is also special because my birthday is 17th April <3 I’ve got my pre-op on 16th and then I need to go in the day after at 7.30am for the section.

    The SHO said she wasn’t concerned about the baby’s growth even though I was going for a growth scan so that was reassuring at least. She said the baby looks like (from measurements etc) it weighs around 6lbs already but can gain 1lb per week now so we could end up with a 9lb baby! We will know more tomorrow though. Just so relieved to have my section booked in and if I show any signs of labour beforehand then I need to phone triage urgently so I can have a section still before I progress too far.

    Aw lovely! Yes hopefully you’ll have gone into labour before then @Baby Ali

    I had a growth scan yesterday too (36+5 for me). Baby was measuring at 6lb 14oz which is to the high end of the range but sonographer said it was fine so I don’t need a referral or review by anyone else. I’ve just been sent back to my midwife who I will see on 9th December. Predicted birth weight of around 8lb by the time he/she is born. :) you could even see the baby’s chubby cheeks on the ultrasound and cute little button nose <3
