Hey Ladies haven't posted much since i have been pregnant.  Pretty much over it now have an appointment on tues with ob for another growth/ position scan  bub is breech and i am measuring way bigger. Had to have a scan at 32+5 and bub was 6lb so can imagine how big it will be this week ohmy.gif . The next person who tell me not long now or its flying by will cop a headbutt or punch so uncomfortable and just want it out. The lady garden department decided to go and see the beautician to get fixed up. Please let the next few weeks go quickly

jjc1 6lbs at 32. Omg. Are you planning on a natural birth? At least bub will be big and strong. I'm 36+2 and thought my contractions started last night, it was so painful I nearly ran off the road. My stomach stayed painfully tight for an hour then it all vanished. I'm ready to reach up there and coax it out.

AJV29 congrats on your last week. I'm sure you won't get bored and enjoy your me time.

Bubba_Mumma, my task for today is to attempt to shave my legs. Yesterday I cut my leg on the edge of a paint tin when walking past (we're doing renovations on the house) and had a massive cut. Of course I didn't hesitate putting a massive band aid over it... until I went for a shower and had to deal with the god awful pain of ripping a huge band aid off hairy bush woman legs.

jjc1 Good luck! I had an elective 3D scan at 27 weeks and they estimated the baby at about 3 pounds then, which seemed pretty huge. I hope her growth has slowed a little since then. I'm so jealous when I hear about women getting told the size of their babies and having scans... I basically got given a dating one at 7 weeks, and a morphology at 18 weeks under my antenatal care.

I paid for an extra elective one at 27 weeks, but it wasn't one I was referred for by my doctor and I had to go to the next town over for it. All I've had my entire pregnancy is one initial consultation at the hospital, one checkup at 36 weeks where they listened to the baby's heartbeat and felt the position of the baby... and I've got one appointment at 40 weeks.

I hear that over a certain size, they don't let you birth the baby naturally. I'm not sure how they would know what size my baby is if they don't check though  huh.gif

Also, my doula said a good way to get the baby into a good position is using a heat and ice pack. So you would put an ice pack on the top of your tummy I assume, and a heat pack down the bottom. Babies are supposed to turn away from the cold and move towards the heat. There would be something online about it surely?

AJV29 Congrats on the finishing up work. TBH it is a little boring, but it's mainly the sitting around being uncomfortable that sucks the most! I decide that I want to do something fun with my day, get an hour in and end up back in bed with chocolate and a heat pack  rolleyes.gif
