    had my 28 weeks appt today.....all fine.....except...

    Boo boo is measuring a little on the big side! lol.....typical...and already weighs about 3 and a half pounds :shock:

    I have my next appt on 3rd jan and if he/she still on the big side i have to go for a growth scan. she said it could settle down and it could be just that i am carrying a lot of water. i do have a very high bump so she also said it may measure more as it should do once it drops a bit....

    wee wee fine though.....no protein or anything bad, so that's all good... :D and BP was spot on too...even the bloods didnt hurt!!

    asked her about my sore bump low down and she just said its ligaments all stretching and it will feel worse for me cos of all the wretching with my illness last weekend...i have weakened my muscles. but she didnt seem concerned. said to get a bump band to help...so luckily my friend has lent me one and its great, def recommend. took the pressure off straight away.

    so what does a high bump usually mean...blue or pink bundle??? :love:

    Glad all went well..

    Not sure about the high and low being blue or pink though... I thought it was whether you put weight on at just the front was an indication of a boy and if you put weight on at the sides it meant a girl?

    So glad all went well hun.
    All front is usually a boy and side to side is girl, don't quote me tho.
    I'm team yellow and my doctor reckons boy from the look of my bump, but she also said she wasn't willing to bet on it. Ha ha.

    I was measuring big last time I saw the midwife (25 week appointment) then I had a 4d scan just over a week later which said my measurements were fine and the baby was 2lb 2oz and bang on what he should be so I wouldn't worry too much about measuring big......I have my 28 week midwife appointment this morning so will see what he measures today.
    As for bumps mine is all at the front and I am having a boy !

    My little man weighed about 3'11 at 27 weeks and he is set to be over 9 lbs. I had a growth scan at 32 weeks I think but all that is going to happen is they induce you at 38 weeks but i havent been booked in yet as they all grow at different stages so could slow down!!
