So this week I have had a few up days and down days.
It started with me getting a really bad pain at the very bottom of my spine, just above my bum. Every time I sit for longer than 10 minutes im in so much pain when trying to get up. In my first pregnancy I really suffered with my back. I have had ongoing problems with my back for a very long time but pregnancy made it so much worse.
I then had a day of feeling really dizzy and light-headed. Not to the point of feeling faint but to the point of needing to sit down. This really worried me as I am a worrier and always think the worst thing is going to happen to me. Luckly my dad has a blood pressure machine so I tested mine and it was 100/73 which is fine really. SO whether I maybe needed to eat more or if my Iron may be a bit low I don’t know. However I am now fine and feeling back to normal.
This week saw me have my second Midwife appointment and I was so excited as knew we would get to hear the baby’s heartbeat. It was amazing and although we have already seen baby on a scan, to hear the heartbeat was amazing. Everything else was fine and we just chatted about how I have been in general. Just looking forward to my 20 week scan now on the 30th April.
On another massive up side, we have finally managed to agree on a few boys and girls names. This has been a massive struggle for us. anything I liked the other half didn’t like at all and visa versa. I am so glad we have had a break through though and finally managed to agree on some names. These are to be kept under wraps at the moment though 🙂
I am still getting really tired all the time and end up in bed asleep by 2100 most nights.
