Baby Brain Alert!
The day I went to see the Midwife was not my best day! The appointment it self went fine, but everything else was just CRAZY!
Baby is doing well be all accounts. Very active! MW took the heart rate twice because the little thing had been kicking manically just before she took the first reading so the heart rate was high. Once baby had chilled out for a few minutes it was back to normal. MW says that's all good. It's normal for heart rate to increase with exertion - a bit like us running up a hill.
I'm measuring a tad on the big side - surprise surprise! I have a growth scan coming up soon so no doubt that will confirm it too.
Aaaaaand I totally for got to pick up my MAT B1 form that I need for work. Just the latest in important things I am forgetting on a daily basis.
Here's what Fertility Friend says about baby this week:
Currently enjoying a weekend away with the kids, gonna need a day off to recover afterwards!
Your baby weighs more than 2 lbs (1000g), measures 9.6 inches from crown to rump (24cm) and its total length is about 15.3 inches (34cm). If your baby were born now, she would have about an 85% chance of surviving. Nonetheless, your baby still needs another 13 weeks of in utero development to be considered full term. Your baby's eyes, no longer fused shut, are now open. Your baby's skin still has a very wrinkled appearance, but it is protected and nourished by the covering of vernix, a waxy coating that keeps the skin supple. Your baby looks almost like a full term baby, but is still much thinner and smaller than she will be at birth.
Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.
You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
