Sesame - Week Thirty-Five


Good news - sesame is growing! She's still measuring small but she's grown which means no inducing in sight. I'm so very happy, we aren't quite prepared yet although I'm not too sure I'll ever quite be ready until she is born. 

We had an antenatal appointment yesterday which was a bit of a stuff up. We were told 9:30 but 11:30 was actually our appointment time. Thank goodness I had the piece of paper to prove it wasn't baby brain. We ended up having a different midwife, not in our team, do our check up including blood. She's an awesome lady. She ran one of the birthing classes so we knew who she was before and she knew us as the realists of the class. 

She took my blood which didn't hurt at all but came back with some news we didn't quite expect. My iron levels have dropped one level, down to 106. Nothing bad but I've been taking supplements and changed to a more iron enriched diet so we at least expected it to stay rather than drop. I've upped the dosage and am only having it with orange juice for the vitamin C. Hopefully it'll finally mean more energy. 

I've had bursts of energy where I get into cleaning but the burst doesn't last long enough to do what I'd like. I'm still dreaming of having a cleaner but more is getting done. Washing is currently being dried hanging outside, there's no washing to put away, the kitchen is clean and  I have plans to do more tomorrow. Mind you most of that is thanks to the mister. He's been so fantastic.

I keep having similar dreams. Weird dreams. Dreams about big outside bathrooms that flood and collapse. No idea what it means, maybe something about the waters breaking? It's frustrating and makes me need to pee more. I'm learning to go to sleep earlier rather than stay up reading or watching movies. It's a work in progress but the early mornings are getting easier.

Going to Roger Waters at almost thirty-five weeks wasn't the most comfortable thing. Sesame love it though, she danced all the way through. Unfortunately she also had the hiccups a lot which made it difficult to sit for a long time or what felt like a long time. One thing I know for sure is she'll either love or hate Pink Floyd!

    So glad to hear that she decided to start growing and no induction needed!

    Sucks about the iron, nothing worse (mine dropped down to 12! yes 12.) I took an iron tablet called FGF, high does and I found no funny after effects.

    5 weeks to go!!

    1. Thank you :)

      12!! That's crazy low! I started taking those tablets but they made me so sick I had to stop :( The liquid stuff doesn't upset my stupidly sensitive tummy.

      Hopefully less than 5 weeks ;)

  2. 35 weeks! I remember when you announced that you were pregnant, it hasn't felt like that long... to me anyway, I am sure it feels like 135 weeks to you :P

    My iron levels were that bad after E's birth that I had to have injections. They hurt like a mofo! Hope you can get your levels sorted.

    1. It feels like ages but it doesn't at the same time. Time is just flying by too fast lately!

      Oh that's not good at all, injections are never fun! Thanks, I hope yours are all sorted too :)

  3. Aaaw, the hiccups- I'd forgotten about those! Too delicious.

    Whenever I dreamt about breaking toilets or looking for ones which when found were broken, or in open spaces it meant I needed to go to the toilet but I was too freaking tired to wake up! Happened a-LOT. :)

  6. Great news about the growth. You seem to be a small sized person anyway so being a little small should be more normal for you? I know what you mean about early evenings. I think there is merit in that. I am still trying to shift from being a night owl to an early bird. Old habits die hard!

    1. Lufflump wasn't that small but I have a long torso so his foot was firmly in my rib when I was in labour with him. They just seem to hide easier ;)
      I can't wait till the teenage years where we either wake them up early or finally get to sleep in!
