Sunday 18th is THE day!

Just a quick update for those of you who don’t follow me on twitter or see me on facebook (or know me in real life, obviously!)

Our appointment at the assessment unit went well yesterday. Baby is still moving like a trooper (even managed to kick one of the monitors off my bump several times!) and his heart rate is perfect. So that is a relief.

However cholestasis has been officially diagnosed and so I am now on medication for it, have to return for monitoring Wednesday and Friday this week, and am being induced Sunday morning.

So it is just a case of taking it easy (especially as my feet and ankles are so very swollen these days) and keeping an eye on baby’s movements on the days when we don’t go in for monitoring until Sunday arrives.

I’m hoping all the cramps I’ve been having (which the monitoring yesterday suggests are actually braxton hicks) is my body starting to prepare for labour anyway so we might have a bit of luck and get somewhere with the induction rather than going on for days and days with no progress… here’s hoping!

Thanks for all your thoughts and hopefully sometime next week I shall be making the announcement of our little man’s arrival.

    good luck! My birthday is the 19th…maybe your little man will have the same bday as me 🙂 (not that I wish you a labour that long!)

    OH my goodness, I am so so excited for you all!! Sorry to hear that these last few days are throwing yet another curve ball at you, but I CANNOT WAIT to see his sweet face. Good luck my sweet friend. You will do great.

    I haven’t been online in a while…much longer than I’d thought! I didn’t realize how long it has really been. I can’t believe you’ve had the baby!
    I will be checking back to see your announcement. You are in my thoughts & prayers. I hope everything went well!!

Don't be shy, join in and let us know what you think!
