Midwife Appointment - Week 32




Weight: 214 down another pound from 2 weeks ago. I have gained only 8lbs total for this pregnancy so far.
BP: 102/70 very good according to my midwife.
Sione's HR: In the 150's but that is after she got done messing with him and pressing on him.
Measurements: 33cm, still measuring about a week ahead.
Head Position: We are pretty sure he is head down as his heartbeat is always found really low on my belly. His butt is up by my left rib cage and feet on my right side.

We talked today about the H1N1(Swine Flu) Vaccine and whether or not i should get it. We also talked a lot about what to expect at the Birthing Center and how they share the information with the other midwives.

As far as how i am feeling...well....I'm 32 weeks pregnant! Not much else to really say.
My cold/Bronchitis is coming to a halt. I am left with nothing but allergies now which can sometimes be just as annoying. No one likes to feel like their head is going to explode lol.

I had a small bout of contractions last night due to dehydration so i drank a lot of water and laid down which halted them.

My feet are swollen and as Sione' runs out of room to move around his movements are becoming a little more painful for me. For the last 3 days he has woken me up from a dead sleep at about 5am moving and kicking.

I am in the last leg and just cannot believe that i only have 8 weeks to go. We will be taking a tour of the Birthing Center next Wednesday so i will let you know how it goes and then back to the midwife on the 30th for my 34 weeks check in.

My baby shower is this Friday and i am sure i will have lots of pictures to share and lots to tell you about. I am excited to get it done and over with so i can at least say i have some baby stuff. Up until now we have not bought anything for Sione' and have nothing left from the boys years ago.

So lots of stuff coming up for me in the next few weeks and other than that just holding Sione' warm and comfy in my womb til he is ready to come out and meet us all.

I wish I had thought of doing this when I was pregnant. Congratulations in advance.

My WW is up.

You're so close now! I didn't know you could get the vaccine when you were pregnant. I learn something all the time.
