Here we are, muddling our way to the halfway point.
Since the morphology scan, I've been feeling pretty crampy and having lots of discharge. (Ah, the joys of pregnancy!) Last night the cramping really ramped up - I hardly slept, had maxed out on water and Panadol, and really struggled to stay calm through it all. Combine those symptoms with a lack of movement, and I was feeling pretty stressed out this morning.
Thankfully I have the most wonderful of Obstetricians (and his lovely staff) who are always accommodating when it comes to my anxiety - and so I popped in for an impromptu visit to check on the baby. She was fine, hanging out and fast asleep, heart racing away at 155bpm.
He is going to start me on fortnightly visits a little early, and will be keeping an eye on my cervix measurement. It's not bad at the moment, but it's worth keeping an eye on. Since the baby seems to be doing fine, I think it's probably more for my peace of mind than anything else, but I appreciate it all the same.
The newest development? Baby has flipped bum-down into the Breech position, and her butt is quite literally pressing over my cervix - which could well be the reason for the pressure and cramping. Please tell me that she has plenty of time to flip head down over the coming weeks, right? Breech was never even on my radar, I've been more worried about getting through each week as it comes!
Now.. how about some more little pictures from last week's morphology scan?
