... not that I'm counting down the days, or anything. Well, tonight I might be as I am extremely uncomfortable. The Poppet had dropped a bit, making me pee every few minutes, and the sonographer I was helping on Friday happened to do my 33 week ultrasound today, and she noted how low his head was in my pelvis. This was making it easier to breathe... and today at the gym I felt wonderful as I was able to breathe somewhat normally. Of course I needed to stop for bathroom breaks every few miles. I also felt some weird sensations in the night... I wondered if they were practice contractions (or, pressure waves, as my hypnobabies study course calls them).
Alas, I don't know how he's managing it, but Poppet is both lower.. yet managing still to squish my lungs so that it's difficult to breathe again. Eek. I am feeling ready to meet this little guy. And at the same time I am wanting to hit the pause button because these weeks are going so fast.
Last night we had our baby basics class. It was a LONG class, but helpful in that it made me think that I know more than I thought! The night before I had my first prenatal yoga class. It was really nice to be around other pregnant women, though I am sure I was the most pregnant. I don't think I'll make it to the end of the course... well, let's hope not :)
Today was the 33 week scan. It wasn't a growth ultrasound (they're every other week), just one that looks to make sure the heart is good, the amniotic fluid is as it should be, and that he's practicing his breathing and has a good heart rate. Everything looked great. He does these whole body movements, which cause my entire stomach to 'wave', it's like having a little alien trying to escape..
In other news, our bathroom renovation took yet another step back when our tub AGAIN arrived and had to be sent back. This time they'd managed to send the wrong colour with the drain in the wrong position. Of course the box said it was the one we needed... you'd think that they might check these things. So, another week before things can even get moving. It's a bit of a nightmare, honestly.
So, this is a whiney blog, but I'm finding that pregnancy is getting really uncomfortable now!
