26 weeks Pregnant
Hello all! Just to log my 26 week Dr's appointment. Nothing too exciting. She did the normal examining the bump then we listened to the heartbeats. All is well. Both bubs have been very active lately and i am feeling them alot now which is reassuing as always.
I complained to the Dr's about pains in my hands in the early mornings and she said most probably carpal tunnel syndrome which is common in pregnancy. She rung the on-call physio therapist and luckily she was happy to see me. She went through what it was and what i can do do ease the pain. She also gave me some splints that i have to wear at night to avoid me bending my habds from the wrists. So a bit happy with that and hopefully i can get a full 8 hours sleep now!
I have also been getting alot of pain near my left rib, but not the rib itself. I think its the skin stretching/pulling. The Dr didn't advise me what to do to ease the pain and said to take something for indigestion?
weird?! I just left it and will just continue wearing the support tummy band i got from mothercare lastnight as i think the pains are due to the fact that my tummy is getting a bit heavy now and is pulling my skin, so just needs a bit of support.
I have booked my maternity leave!!! It will officially start on 1st December but as i have 3 weeks of annual leave to take before i go, i finish work on the 6th of November
. So happy as i don't think i can carry in anymore! Tummy is getting heavy and i am getting tired really quickly now.
I am going to the baby show on Saturday. Anyone else going? I think it will be a good day out to test all the baby gadgets out there and also to gets some bargains and.....freebies!!!!
Ohhh...and i've booked my 3D/4D scan!!! I am so excited! I know it's a bit of a luxury since we are expecting twins and twins are expensive, but i know i will regret it later on if i don't go ahead with it. It is my 30th the day before the scan and also we will be celebrating our 5th year wedding anniversary on the day of the scan, so will i will be treating this as my birthday prezzie to myself. I may never get the chance again so i am just going to bite the bullet and go for it! I will post pix here for sure!
That's it from me i think! Quite a long post today, as i haven't updated my diary for 2 weeks now. I will be back in 2 weeks to report on my midwife's appointment, my NHS 28 week scan and my private 3D/4D scan...ohhh, exciting!!!
