Sesame - Week Thirty-Seven

I missed last weeks update, oops! Damn illness again, this time it was some sort of cold. Poor lufflump was struck with bronchiolitis which I wrote about here

Good news; I've had so much more energy lately. I'm wondering if the Zoloft was making me lethargic as well as lowering my iron levels as I'm feeling amazing off it. In fact this week we went as a family up to Redcliffe and I did more than I've done in a LONG time, the mister even got to relax a bit while I was off playing with lufflump. That sounds terrible but it's true. Whenever we'd go on family outings I'd end up feeling sick or too tired to do anything but sit on my ass and watch the boys play. It sucked. I felt guilty, the mister would be exhausted and lufflump would be upset that I didn't join in. Hopefully this is a good start to change!

I'm actually feeling awesome off the Zoloft. Granted I've been a bit too snappy at the mister and I cry at the drop of a hat (no more Sunday Mail for me) but that could just be pregnancy hormones, right? I will start taking 25mg a day after I give birth with a reassessment at three months with my wonderful GP. 

We are on weekly midwife visits which is exciting! Our last midwife that we saw, Nicole, thinks I'll go early and said if sesame came right now she'd be happy. She also said she'll be a tall baby and was surprised at how big sesame feels. Apparently I feel all baby with not much fluid at the front. Sesame is still measuring two weeks small but so did lufflump and he came out 3.4kgs. She said she doesn't want me to go further than forty weeks, the ideal time would be 39 weeks which means two weeks! I'm getting more used to the fact she'll be here soon but, like with lufflump, I'm not sure I'll ever be ready.

I'm having major pelvic and inner thigh pains especially after walking for long periods. I must remember to tell the midwife that on Monday and also that my pelvic bone has a big crack in it, apparently broken from when I was a child. The mister thinks it's hilarious how I waddle around. I think it looks like I've got a third imaginary leg, I keep getting Rolf Harris' 'Jake the Peg' in my head when I walk like that but damn it's the only way that doesn't hurt. 

I packed the hospital bag yesterday. I'm only going to add to it now with essentials like pillow, nightie, bra and towels. The mister thinks it's hilarious that I've packed a bag the same size as last time when we are only staying in for six or so hours. My reasoning; I don't know what size she will fit into and I can't for the life of me remember what newborns temperatures are like (apart from frustrating) so I've packed a few outfits for her.

Now we wait. Hopefully she won't be as stubborn as her brother and make an early appearance!
Growth spurt currently in process (apparently)
How many adorable baby outfits did you take to the hospital?

    1. That's what I was thinking too, better to over pack than under pack.

  3. Can't get over how amazing you look! When I was at this stage with my son, I looked like I inhaled KFC five times a day - probably because I did, lol.

  8. How awesome does your gorgeous bump look??? Actually all of you is looking fantastic. Glad you are feeling well right now too, apart from the pelvic pain. I was always getting told Skye measured small and she was 3.3kg too, mainly because like you there wasn't much fluid.
    I actually was useless with clothing in the hospital and we were there for 5 days, but I was too scared to dress her so she probably only wore 2 outfits the whole time.
    Soooo exciting that you are nearly there, I hope it all goes well xx

    1. Oh thank you!
      Thank goodness for wraps, so much easier to just wrap babies than clothe them :)
      Thank you, I do too.

  10. If you're only going 39 weeks at the most, that is barely a sneeze away! I packed two warmer outfits and two summer onsies for my girls. We ended up being in there though for 4 days each time due to my c-sections. It's great we could use the hospital gowns till we were ready to go. Exciting times for you!
