Week 37 PregnancyMonday, January 26, 2015
I've put off writing this week's update for a couple of days because I thought baby was coming out, but after a couple of false alarms I came to terms with the fact that she probably might not make it out this week :(
Gained a total of 14kg so far and have been experiencing bad bodyaches, cramps and stronger contractions. There have been good days though where I was able to go out for dinners and move around more :) Also had home visits from friends which I really appreciate, support during this time really made these last weeks a lot more bearable.
Had my last gynae appointment a couple of days ago and apparently I'm already in early labour, 1-2cm dilated! That was what got us all excited and kept thinking baby's coming out lol. In actual fact though, this stage in pregnancy can last anywhere from days to weeks depending on the baby. We've also signed up with Cordlife this week to keep baby's cord blood and cord lining! Modern technology is seriously mind-blowing?! Will share more on that in another post, highly recommend all parents-to-be to consider keeping their baby's cord!
Signing off now because I'm going through another bout of bad cramps :/ Can't wait for baby to come out!
