Woohoo, I’m finally in the home stretch with this pregnancy. I am currently 34 weeks and 2 days with baby number 5.
He has been pretty active, and I’m happy to report that he has been staying head down. WOOHOO! Considering how much he loved being transverse, I’m relieved that he’s staying head down now. Whew.
I went to the chiropractor yesterday. Baby Boy has been lying on my right side pretty consistently and I was having some awful round ligament pain on my right side, as well as hip pain when he would grind his shoulders into my hip bone area. At my adjustment, she was gently able to move him to where he’s now more centrally lying, so his back is closer to my belly button. It’s quite the relief.
I haven’t had too much heartburn lately. I haven’t really had much pain at all. Mainly I just just feel huge and awkward walking, sitting, standing, etc. I’ve also been tired, of course, but nothing new.
We even went to Six Flags with the kids this weekend and I survived being out in the heat and walking around with the kiddos for a good 4 1/2 hours. Then we had Krispy Kreme donuts on the way home for dinner and my 9 year old daughter declared it the best dinner ever. 🙂
That’s pretty much it for me! My midwives are pretty laid back and I won’t have another appointment until I’m 37 weeks. I’m going to be doing weekly chiropractor visits. Hopefully everything just continues to go easily and smoothly!
