Past the halfway point now, and it feels like time is flying. It doesn’t seem 5 minutes ago that we discovered baby 4 was on the way, and now everything is racing towards June!
It was lovely to see the baby at last weeks scan, and we are actually going to be lucky enough to see the baby again this weekend, as we are having a 4D scan. I have never had one before, but after seeing lots of friends pictures and DVD’s, it convinced us that it would be a lovely thing to do – especially as this is our last baby.
Movements have become much more pronounced this week, and Kevin can feel them now too, which is lovely. The baby was head up and feet down at the scan, which explains why the movements are all low down. I feel like I am a lot smaller bump wise this pregnancy than I was with the boys. I am hoping this means that I might just make it to full term this time – fingers tightly crossed!
I am still craving all things fruity, and am so thirsty all the time. I don’t think I have ever felt as thirsty as I do at the moment – but it’s a good thing as I don’t usually drink enough, so the baby is doing me a favour!
Yesterday we spent the day at the beach, and the fresh air was wonderful. It really cleared my head and made me feel a lot more upbeat, although I have to say that sea air really does make you feel exhausted! I was definitely ready for a shower and early bed last night.
I have started to collect together the first few bits and pieces for my hospital bag now – some maternity pads, breast pads and little travel size wash products. I want my bag to be packed quite early, just in case I go into premature labour again – although of course I am hoping that doesn’t happen!
