I’ve been to my fourth Midwife Appointment this morning and as previously everything was ok 🙂
My blood pressure is fine and the bump is apparently the right size, although when I tried to measure it it seemed to be a bit too small. The baby’s heartbeat was now 148bpm, comparing to 164bpm from the last visit back in May, so it’s all looking great. The baby even kicked the midwife while she was checking the bump which was quite funny 🙂
I don’t think my baby likes those scans and tests and so on, because she stays very quiet after each and doesn’t kick as much as normally afterwards.
I told my midwife about the last scan and my feelings after, and that they’ve now told us that it’s a girl, and she said, well don’t set your mind on anything in that case, because it will most likely be a surprise then. They can get it wrong…
I don’t know how I’d react if they now told us that it’s a boy, if we went to another scan. It would just be upsetting those constant changes. My husband would be happy if it was a boy in the end, but I really don’t mind, I just want them to make up their mind.
I have told my midwife that we weren’t offered any pictures either after the scan, and she told me that if I contact the hospital they should be able to either post them to us, or print them of so that we can collect them ourselves, as they will have them on their system. I will try to do this, because it was really disappointing that we got nothing from the second scan.
My next appointment is now on 29th August, when I will be almost 28 weeks.
