~ Week 32 ~

Standard

By 32 weeks it really seems not long now until we get to meet baby! All my reading information tells me that baby should have turned into the head-down position and ready for the descent! As he/she is bigger each week I can feel how cramped movements are and now I am getting kicked in the ribs too. Braxton Hicks I have felt a few times this past week, but nothing painful – phew! Only a tightening sensation that starts at the top of my bump and spreads outwards. Another indication that D-Day is nigh!  The list of things to get for baby is still long but getting a little shorter each week. Still not enough to ward off those crazy pregnancy dreams which are back again. People tell you to get as much sleep before baby comes – which I get! I do!

BUT! It is hard , when lying in bed isn’t as comfy as it used to be cos baby bumpo is in the way  or your dreams are so weird it wakes you up! sigh…

Today we had our ‘Intensive Prenatal Class’ through UCSF (the hospital I will deliver at)  which was very informative and the teacher was very quirky and fun. I knew we would have to watch a few DVDS on labour and birth  and C-sections but luckily it wasn’t anything too graphic or gruesome (for Robins sake!) I think I have seen (and learnt) more in that way, from watching ‘One Born Every Minute’ on telly!

If we learnt anything from yesterday is that anything can happen – when we turned up for the class, which was near where we live, the building it was meant to take place in was locked so we had to move to another location downtown! This delayed the day by 90minutes and parking was then an absolute nightmare and the car park we went to had a broken payment machine so  then we couldn’t pay which left us at risk of being towed,  Robin decided then it best to move it and just drive around and find street parking which ended up in finding a spot eventually not to far from the class but also a flat tyre (!)  Yep. Anything can happen.  And we will remember that for D-Day!
