I had a bit of a scare at the start of this week when I was sitting at work. My vision went blurry to the point where I couldn't read any words on my computer screen and I could see funny swirls. Then I started to get a sore head and some pains at the top of my stomach which wasn't great and to top it off my left side went numb. Even the left side of my tongue went numb! I seriously thought I was having a stroke or coming down with pre-eclampsia. Luckily when I called the maternity assessment ward the midwife told me to come right in for checks and even though I was there for about 3 hours everything was ok. The doctor put it down to a migraine and how sometimes in pregnancy it can do strange things to your body. Glad I went to get checked out (better safe than sorry) and at least I got a nosey at the new maternity hospital. The doctors and midwives were so nice, they even fed the other half and I which was very kind of them.
|Bump getting a check up
I've went a bit crazy Christmas wise this year and have almost bought and wrapped all the Christmas presents!! I know it's not even November yet however I'm desperately trying to get all the little jobs done and out of the way that I can do so I can relax and put my feet up especially since I'll be like a beached whale soon or more probably like a turtle struggling to right itself. I'm already finding it hard to put my socks on, maybe best I get Logan involved as he likes helping his Mummy.
The baby is now around 16 inches long and weighs almost 3lbs, this I'm told is roughly the size of a large cabbage. Pretty big then and it still has 10 more weeks to grow! I'm going to be waddling around soon I'm sure. My bump is solid so I have no idea how it's going to hold 10 more weeks of baby growing. It's good to know that the baby is now fully developed though but it's lungs still aren't mature enough yet for the outside world.
This weekend I'm looking forward to a pamper day at the lovely Crieff Hydro with my Mum and mother-in-law, I'm going to get a nice pregnancy massage, use their spa facilities and have lunch after so can't wait. A day of not doing very much and just taking it easy sounds fab.
