Pregnancy Update

Only 8 weeks and 2 days left to go! I can’t believe how fast it has been going. Things have been going well, still being stressed with trying to keep my weight below the highest weight gain for my current, so far I’ve gained 11kilo (24.2lbs) at almost 32 weeks, and only allowed to gain 2.5kilo (5lbs) more till the end of my pregnancy. If I go over this amount I’m kicked out of this hospital and sent to a University Hospital and have to pay double the amount, around $10,000. Of course the medical covers a small part, up to $4,000, but that is still a lot of money to worry about. Also the placenta is still too low and the doctor is worried about that, I will need to go for another check-up soon, before Golden Week to check the progress, and if it’s low then I am off to another hospital to get it checked out. Looking at a high chance of a C-section it seems but we still have a few more weeks, so fingers crossed. Other than that baby looks healthy, weighing 1700 grams at the last checkup with a strong heart beat and super active in my belly. I’m feeling good physically, still walking, even though the doctor says I shouldn’t walk too much I am just listening to my body and taking my time. Since I have been walking my backaches have decreased and not at painful. I do have really dry and itchy skin lately from the hormonal changes and lots of leg cramps and leg aches.

I have 2 more weeks of work left and then I’ll be off... then it will be time to prepare hospital bags, the baby’s crib and buy all the essential items needed. So that will keep me busy, as well working on my homemade jewelry and items to sell online which you can now see the new blog http://lindsaywhimsies.blogspot.com
