Thank you for sharing our pregnancy journey. Here is our update for weeks 26 to 28.
28weeks pregnant – 84 days to go
Baby Dot is now about 38cms long and weighs just over a kilo.
Time is flying now with just 84 days to go until ‘Dot’ arrives. We still have so much to do already and the countdown is on:
- Baby’s moses basket, pram and swing need to come down from the loft for cleaning
- Newborn clothing needs purchasing and washing (preparing for a summer baby this time)
- Baby’s cot needs fixing and placing in the Nursery
- Jack needs moving into his own room to make space for the baby in ours (yes! he is still in ours)
- Hospital bag items need purchasing and packing
So much to do in such little time!
I continue to feel anxious about the labour but thankfully I get to meet with my midwife tomorrow. I haven’t seen anyone since week 15 so it’ll be good to go over some of my concerns. I have at page full of questions at the ready.
Last week, I started to come out in itchy red pimples all over my body but more so on my belly. I visited the doctor who sent me for an urgent blood test to check on my liver function. I haven’t heard anything back from them so can only assume that the results showed no anomalies. The pimples and itching were gone within a couple of days so I didn’t feel the need to follow it up but I’ll be sure to check the results with my Midwife.
On Sunday, we visited Ultrasound Direct in Newbury for a Babybond 4D Bonding Scan. Say hello to Baby Dot…
Baby looks so much like Jack, its unreal. We couldn’t get a clearer shot as baby was hiding its face so we’ve booked in for a free rescan this coming Tuesday. The checks confirmed that baby is growing away nicely and is measuring a few days early. Hopefully, baby will be less cheeky on Tuesday.
That’s about all from us for now. Thanks for taking the time to read our latest update.
