32 Weeks

This week has been going pretty well. I’m feeling good without too many aches/pains. I had an OB appt a couple days ago. Baby boy was doing great, but is still breech. My asked me if I had thought about what if I need a c-section. I think she just wanted to make sure I knew that’s what would be on the table if he doesn’t turn. I was aware so it wasn’t a surprise. She said that when they do go head down that it can put more pressure on the bladder and ureters and cause more kidney issues. Because what she’s seen as far as it causing more issues she said she was “halvies” on whether she wanted him to turn. We didn’t have an in depth discussion about it because he has time. They don’t worry about it too much until after 36 weeks which isn’t for another month. I’m really fine with whatever way he decides to make his appearance. There are pros and cons to both. I’m not worrying about his position, it’ll be what it’ll be and we’ll go from there. It’s actually more comfortable to carry him in this position because his head isn’t low putting pressure on my bladder and cervix. I can’t bend over as easy because his head is in the way, but I also don’t have to pee every 5 minutes or deal with the shooting pain that can come from head movement so low. We will see how it ends up!

Weekly Update:

How far along: 32 Weeks

How big is baby: Size of a Florida pomelo ~16.7in/42.2cm, weighing in at about 3.75lbs

Symptoms: My hips have been feeling better since I saw the chiropractor last week. Heartburn has been ramping up a bit and I’ve had to throw some Tums on top of the Pepcid a couple times to be able to sleep. I started taking magnesium to help with the restless legs as well as doing a 10-15 min workout before bed. Those things seem to be helping.

Movement: He’s still a mover even if he is getting more cramped. I can feel his head up by my ribs. My husband put his hand on my stomach the other day and went “oh geez, his head really is right there” because it’s pretty prominent and easy to feel. He was kicking something the other night that sent an electric shock down my left leg and made it twitch so much it work me up.

Sleep: Not too bad usually. I’m still tired most of the time, but other than getting up a few times to use the bathroom I’m sleeping as well as can be expected

Food cravings?  Peanut butter, especially on things like waffles.

Food Aversions? not really

Anything making you queasy or sick? Eating too much which I don’t really do anymore because I’m testing my blood sugar and need to keep it under a certain level. Heartburn can make me nauseous if it’s bad

Best moment of the week? it wasn’t a super exciting week, but we got almost all of our Christmas shopping done which is nice

Next appointment:  My next OB appt is December 20th and I have a growth ultrasound on Dec. 21st just to check on him. My OB always has one done around now
