30 weeks!? Really?! How has that happened? I’m sure this is the fastest pregnancy in history – I guess the biggest factor in that is having two other little people to run around after & occupy my thoughts.
Beak is truly making him / herself known now with lots of wriggling & kicking about (some of which is decidedly uncomfortable.) This baby definitely seems to be in a different position to the other two, the movements often feel very different. Ben tries daily to feel kicks & wriggles but Beak is stubborn as all hell & usually stops!
At 30 weeks I’m finding the SPD is getting harder to stave off – it has been threatening from about 16 weeks but I’ve been careful – I know what upsets it so I’ve avoided those things! Not working full time or driving to Leeds & back every day is clearly a major factor in this! Having not worked for the last 7 or so weeks I’ve obviously been able to be quite flexible about what I do & not push things. It will be interesting to see how this pans out over the coming half term. The bonus is of course that I can be relatively flexible and choose not to work if I’m struggling (though the impact of this on our bank balance may be more of a deciding factor than my sore pelvis!)
Sleeping is getting to be more of a challenge – heartburn is stopping me from getting to sleep on occasion & my hips are certainly stopping me staying asleep. Dave is being a complete star allowing me to stay in bed of a morning but my hips clearly have a different agenda.
So aside from heartburn & sore hips, a stabby pelvis & numb thighs? Its all good. My bp is thus far behaving, I escaped the gestational diabetes (whoooop!) and Beak is a perfectly sensible size.
The countdown begins here …
