Visible changes in my body: about the weight- I went to see cardiologist and I was shocked- as my home scales are broke, I don't even know now if I lost or put on any weight; my bump is there and I love it, but just hate moment when someone saying "nothing there".
Other: I have seen physiotherapist, it was a quick appointment where lady talked us through how we should sit, how is best to lie on your side and how to easily change sides, how to get out of the car and bath etc and at the end gave us a bump band, which in all honesty made me feel no different. I have my 31 week appointment tomorrow with a midwife, booked a private scan for next weekend
How do I feel: where do I start..I have weird pains in my chest from time to time and at the back, they are so strong sometimes I just can't sit properly or breath; I also had I think Braxton Hicks (but I'm not sure) it took my breath away and it was painful in downstairs department and bottom part of my bump; I can't sit leaning forward as I can feel discomfort due to baby; my headaches are back, not every day, but once I had them in 3 waves in one day; and I have spots, hate them!); I also have very weird sleeping pattern-sometimes I woke up at 6 am and some days at 8 am.
Cravings: still none, well I don't know if it's a craving really I just wanted ice-cream, and finished a box in 2 days, I blame weather!
Fitness: The same routine- walking every day for max. 25 minutes and swimming once a week
Baby: At 30 weeks baby now measures a little more than 39cm from crown to toe. Her growth in terms of her length will soon slow down but she will continue to gain weight until she's born. She probably weighs about 1.3kg at this stage.
Baby’s brain, nervous system and organs continue to mature with every day she spends in the womb. If she was born now she’d still need specialist care as her lungs are not fully mature to breathe on their own and she lacks the body fat to regulate her body temperature.
Do you think I had Braxton Hicks?
