Pregnancy Brain has begun to take over my life. Day by day I am becoming more forgetful and confused. I am placing things in the strangest places and missing appointments because I am convinced that they were an hour later only to check my calendar and find out that I was wrong. My latest blunder to place on Monday. I spent the entire morning waiting in anticipation to go to a scan at the hospital. (Ok I spent the whole weekend obsessing over it with excitement). I couldn’t wait to get a glimpse of by little bear. I reminded my husband several times at which time he should fetch me for the appointment. I couldn’t think of anything else for the whole morning. Lunch time came and I started to get ready for the appointment. My husband arrived home and soon we were off to the scan. We went to announce our arrival by the reception only to find out that we were an entire month early for the scan. I was majorly disappointed and quite embarrassed to say the least.
Today I went in to the doctor for a general pregnancy check up, all went well. I was so happy that she did a quick scan so I was able to get a glimpse of my little boy. I am looking forward to the longer scan at the hospital next month. During the scan I found out that he is beginning to position himself for birth. He is now lying head down and will stay that way until birth, which is not to far away now. There is only 8 weeks left until his due date. He is getting bigger and heavier by the day, I am beginning to feel his weight when I am standing for long periods of time. He is slowly putting strain on my back. He is also starting to disturb my sleep more and more. Last night when I was just comfortable and ready to fall asleep, he decided that it would be a good idea to stretch his legs out against my ribs. So I got up for a few minutes and walked around to encourage him to move in a different position. I must say that this really helped. I love being pregnant and feeling my little boy inside of be, but slowly it feels as if the space is running out. I can’t wait to meet my little boy and see his face for the first time.
It seems like I am only able to make the updates every two weeks, if you are lucky maybe I will get it right to have an update next week.
