” Your baby doesn’t have much room to maneuver now. He or she is over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (pick up a honeydew melon). Because he or she is so snug in your womb, your baby isn’t likely to be doing dramatic somersaults anymore, but the number of movements you feel should remain about the same.
Your baby’s kidney are fully developed now, and his or her liver can process some waste products. Basic physical development is now mostly complete – your baby’s main job over the next few weeks is to put on weight. “ – Baby Center, Pregnancy App
I am 35 weeks today, syukur ke hadrat Allah SWT. 🙂 5 weeks to go..in shaa Allah. It’s getting nearer and preparation for baby’s things is nearly there..we plan to at least finish buying with what baby needs in case he/she comes before my due date. 2 more weeks to the safe zone, after that..I will be relieve and anxious. hehe.
I had 2 appointments this week, one was the normal check up and the next day was an ultrasound appointment. I had an emotional and panic moment actually. As usual during check up, we were asked to lie down so that the nurse can check the heartbeart, measurements and so on. The nurse was trying to feel the baby’s head below but can’t seem to find it..she kept on pressing my abdomen that it hurts, and still can’t feel the baby’s head. She tried feeling and pressing the rest of my stomach. She check the baby’s heartbeat and it’s on my right side, a previous patient had the same problem where the nurse can’t locate the baby’s head..but her baby’s heartbeat was on her left side, which means the baby’s breech. I’m not really sure if there is a specific position for a breech baby, but the nurse seems to be confuse about my baby’s position. Another nurse tried to check also, and could not find the head..I was actually scared and plus it hurts a lot. 😦 and she said that my stomach is so tight, and I have been experiencing that all the time.
In the end, they wrote breech with a question mark on my card. Luckily, I was scheduled for an ultrasound the next day. I wasn’t in the mood as I kept on thinking about the baby. I don’t mind if baby’s breech, as long as my baby is healthy and fine. And Alhamdulillah, my baby’s fine. 🙂 🙂 🙂 and yes, my baby is in a breech position. and I am not advised to have a massage, I’m not sure if it’s for the entire pregnancy or until my next ultrasound which will be next week in RIPAS. I have read about baby being breech during 34th week, and it’s normal..they can actually turn on their own. and I really hope my baby will turn on his/her own and stay that way until I give birth. In the end, it comes to izin Allah jua, and no matter what the outcome and position will be, Allah knows best. 🙂
and YES, we know the sex of our baby already. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Alhamdulillah. I said, I don’t want a surprise..and we’re glad that we finally know the baby’s gender. I feel more closer to the baby. hehe.
Other than that, there is no new symptoms..just normal like what I experienced during my previous week. I am getting cramps and sharp pains now and then..and it is actually painful that I woke up from my sleep because of the pain. huhu. and my stomach feels two times heavier, and I’m not that tired and breathless anymore. yeay! I guess it has to do with the fact that now my stomach has dropped. I feel so ‘lapang’ on top..the tiredness, cramps and pain all below the stomach now. hehe. and I have gained 3 kilos in 2 weeks, even the nurse was surprised. I hope I didn’t exceed my weight limit, so far I’ve gained 14kg. 😀
What to look forward for next week?
My ultrasound in RIPAS and my sister in law’s wedding. 🙂 We will be very busy and I hope I can hold myself from being too busy and going here and there, I can’t even walk properly now. haha. and I made 3 maternity dress for the wedding. Excited to finally wear it. 🙂 and my cousin from Birau will be getting married at the same day also. Have to figure out when to go for both.
Okay, I have to end my post..it’s getting too long. until the next one in shaa Allah.
