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!
