37wks + 3days

Standard

Wow, in medical terms the baby is now classified as full term if it were to be born now!!!  I can’t believe we are just 18days away from DUE DATE!

I started a course of reflexology last night to help get things moving and it was just wonderful!  I am really taking a very holistic, natural approach to this birth and am trying everything possible to prevent me having medical intervention.  The reflexology is 4 sessions worth and she works on different parts of my feet, relating to my uterus etc.  It was just wonderful!

My midwife appointment went well this week.  The baby’s head is 4/5th’s engaged, so at least it is starting to move down!

I have now started my Raspberry leaf capsules, eating pineapple and about to start on the spicy food.  Probably all old wives tales I know, but no harm in trying them!  Oh and I have a wonderful 1hr back massage booked for next Friday, that I can’t wait for!

It is bank holiday weekend in the UK, this weekend, and can’t say I have loads planned, but I have a few things!  I must stitch more of the sampler that is for sure!  I am going to get pampered on Saturday and have booked in to have my hair trimmed, a manicure, pedicure and my eye brows shaped.  Just thought I could with it!

I am hoping the weather is nice, as it would be lovely to be able to sit in the garden, read and chill out!

Right I am off to physio now, as my pelvic pain has returned worse than ever, joint with sciatic (sp?) pain so I am hoping they can sort it out for me.  Would love a pain free weekend!

So have a wonderful bank holiday everyone, and I will try and post some more pictures of the sampler at some point!
