Today baby is about the size of a honeydew melon and I’ll tell you, I’m really feeling it. Sleep is starting to become uncomfortable. I wake up numerous times a night to just roll my body over or go to the bathroom. If not those reasons then I wake up unexpectedly and my mind starts going crazy with things I need to do and get ready as well as really odd questions coming into my mind. For example, the other night I started thinking ‘what stops your intestines from falling out after you have a baby’ and ‘how long does it take to un-dilate after giving birth’. Odd right!!
My belly button still hasn’t become a proper outie yet. One day it will be and the next it’s back to normal but I think it will soon just stay out, well either that or it will just be so stretched out that it’s neither in or out but this odd looking flat thing.
I have really been wanting to eat smoked salmon this week and I know I’m going to HAVE to have it once baby is here, I just can’t go without it much longer. I’ve really missed it.
We have our scan tomorrow which I am so excited about. I just want to hear the news that my placenta has moved out of the way and everything will be ok for me to go ahead with a natural birth. Plus I can’t wait to see baby again! I want to get a last look at baby’s sex too, just to make sure things haven’t changed in that department. I know it happens sometimes! Think i will be devastated as I have already bought lots of clothes for what we were told we would be having.
Anyway, I will let you know how it goes. Talk to you all then.
