Pregnancy 29 weeks

This pregnancy is much like my other pregnancies, and at the same time it’s very different.

I have something called low PAPP-A, which means I’m at a higher risk of having a low birth weight baby, increased chance of an early birth, increased chance of developing pre-eclampsia.

Now I’ve had this in 3 out of 4 of my pregnancies. I had it with Zack, Jasper and now with this pregnancy too, however I didn’t have it when I was pregnant with Jamie.

However when it comes to the low birth weight part I seem to be the opposite. And Im having rather large babies. Only Zack was premature at 36 weeks, Jasper was 38 weeks and Jamie 39. And thankfully I’ve never developed pre-eclampsia.

Now with this girl she’s on the 97th centile on the growth chart, and is estimated to weigh about 4,5 kg, for this reason I’m likely to be induced if she’s not decided to make an appearance before then.

Honestly I really just want time to move quicker now, everything hurts, I’m so heavy and just want to meet our little girl and get back to my normal body and normality.

Just over 10 weeks to go until the official due date. And I have another ultrasound at 32 weeks so hopefully then I’ll get a few more answers about a possible induction.

The birds and the bees

I had to have the conversation the other day with Jasper, the conversation that I was hoping I wouldn’t have to have yet for a while, a couple of years or you know ever.

Jasper looks at my bump with a very puzzled look and asks me “mummy how did the baby get in there?”. I completely panic, I was not prepared for this and I answer “ When mummy’s and daddy’s love each other very much they have really big cuddles and that makes a baby “. Jasper the little smart ass couldn’t just accept this answer and be done with it nope instead he says “but mummy I give you cuddles”. So panic mode again “ehrum yes but it’s only when boyfriends and girlfriends cuddle that you can make a baby”. And before he manages to come up with another question to my terrible answer I ask him if he has a girlfriend? He replies “ Mummy my girlfriends a little bit interesting “

And that made me laugh so hard that I nearly peed myself.

When it comes to the talk though, I think I’ll have to have a think and sit down and have a better conversation with him, I don’t think the answers I gave him were the best. He took me by surprise okay? I need time to prepare for something like that. 😂

Summer holiday

Do you remember when the summer holidays started and life was filled with sleep ins and fun for those precious few weeks? – Yeah my kids don’t get it.

Let’s start the day ridiculously early put every single toy we own in me the middle of the floor and wait for mummy to clean it up so we can do it again, yeah that’s their idea of a summer holiday.

It’s going to hurt

These quarantine days are going fast and slow at the same time, just like this pregnancy. I want it to go faster because I’m so heavy and tired already. But at the same time I want it to slow down because I have so many things I need get done before our little girl is here. And my stress levels are peaking way too high as it is.

Jasper can’t wait for his little sister to arrive and is always coming up to me giving my bump cuddles and kisses and wanting to feel baby kick.

He’s also expressed an interest in how baby gets out of mummies belly. His new thing is now to point at my private parts whilst telling me that the baby comes out of there and it’s going to hurt. It’s a nice reminder of what’s to come.

Morning after regrets

Slightly misleading headline, I’ve not been drinking.

We had a lovely evening last night, the kids got to run around, play and tire themselves out which led to an incredible easy bed time. It might of took 15 minutes, might just be a record for us.

I stayed up late, well later then usual which is really late for me. I was editing photographs all night. And oh am I feeling it this morning. I feel like the zombie mom of zombie moms.

I might have to re-edit some of the photos, I was so tired last night that I started rushing through it and looking at them this morning they could use some tweaking.

Today I have to give the house a big clean, finish cleaning the sofa and chair that we started yesterday. And move the living room furniture around. I might do a little vlogg?

But for now It’s breakfast time!

Expecting baby number four.

As I was reading through my old blog posts the other day I came across one about weather or not we would be having any more children – you can read it here.

And it made me laugh as clearly things didn’t end up the way I thought they would. Because here we are expecting our fourth child.

And although it’s been a struggle for me mentally, accepting that we’re having another child. I’m now in a place where I can say I’m happy about it and I can’t wait to meet our little girl ( I was never not happy, however I was terrified and that feeling took over at that point in time). Although I am still scared about having four children, and how we are going to manage with everything. The other week I completely broke down because I thought we was going to have to buy a new car, but more about that in a separate post.

Reading through the archive

Good morning, or bad morning I guess depending on how your morning started. I unfortunately didn’t sleep great so feeling tired and a little bit grumpy.

The kids are full of energy as usual. I think we should just change that to me being full of energy and the kids being tired, honestly that would just make more sense.

I spent last night reading through some of my old posts, I must say it was nice to be able to read and look back at things. It also gave me insight to what I wish I would of wrote more about.

Time to make some breakfast! I will be back with more posts soon though, allot has happened since I last posted.

2-3 cm

What a weekend! And I don’t mean that in a positive way either. But lets start with something positive. Zacks back to being himself again, the swelling in his arm has gone down completely and hes got a normal temperature again, so were really happy about that.
I was in hospital Saturday night and at that point I was dilated 1 cm, and they wanted me to stay over night. I didn´t think that was necessary so I discharged myself and went home. However yesterday morning I lost part of my mucus plug, so I phoned in and they wanted me to go back to get checked out. And at that point I was 2-3 cm. So now were just waiting for whenever this little ones going to decide to come out.  And obviously its a positive thing that babies going to be with us soon, I’m just not a big fan of going in and out of hospital.
Today Ive been starting to thoroughly clean the house I have got quite allot done today, but I still have quite a few things left to get done. Now that I’m feeling better and babys arrival is getting close I really want to get the house spotless.
But for now I’m going to go to sleep, need to make sure I have energy for whatever happens next.

Vilken helg! Och då menar jag inte på ett positivt sätt. Men vi kan väll börja med något positivt och det är att Zack mår bra, svullnaden har gått ner och han har ingen feber längre, så det är vi såklart jätte glada för.
Jag var inne på sjukhuset i lördags kväll och då var jag öppen 1 cm och dom ville att jag skulle stanna över natten. Men jag tyckte inte att det behövdes så jag skrev ut mig själv. Sen igår så ringde jag för att en del av slemproppen gått, så då ville dom att jag skulle komma tillbaka in på koll. Då var jag 2-3 cm. Så nu får vi bara vänta och se när bebis bestämmer sig för att komma ut. Det är såklart positivt att bebis kommer snart, men jag hatar att åka in och ut från sjukhuset.
Idag har jag börjat stor städa ordentligt här hemma, har fått en hel del gjort, men har fortfarande en del kvar att göra också. Nu när jag mår lite bättre och bebis ankomst närmar sig så vill jag verkligen få huset skinande rent.
Men nu så ska jag faktiskt sova, se till att jag har energi för vad som en händer.

So very tired (and his hairs curly from sleeping with his hair up in a twisted bun)

I really have to apologise for how incoherent and grammatically incorrect my latests posts have been.
Grammars, spelling and so on really isn’t my strongest side, but its generally not this bad. But I suppose I can always blame the pregnancy brain and tiredness. Either way I promise that I will do my best so that it won’t be quite as bad with future posts.

So, what about today? Poor Zack is like previously stated not feeling great, hes so incredibly tired and ended up falling asleep at the dinner table with ketchup all over his face. Hes barely ate anything at all other then a little bit at dinner and some chocolate that Ive used as a bribe for him to take his medicin. For now hes sleeping, and I’m just hoping he will wake up feeling better in the morning. Hard to believe its actually Friday today, (it feels more like a Tuesday or a Wednesday). And as usual we haven’t really got anything planned for this weekend. Ryan is playing on his new PS VR and I’m just waiting for baby to decide its time to come out. The countdown has really started for me now seems Zack was born at 36 weeks gestation, and since he was I’m expecting this one to be born at 36 weeks as well. Not entirely sure why considering I thought the same thing about Jasper and he ended up being born at 38 weeks. And if this ones going to be born at exactly 36 weeks, like Zack was, labour should be starting now. But we will just have to wait and see when this little one decides to make an appearance.

Jag måste verkligen be om ursäkt för hur otroligt osammanhängande och grammatiskt inkorrekta mina senaste inlägg har varit. Grammatik, stavning osv är verkligen inte min starka sida men såhär illa brukar det inte vara, men jag får väll skylla på att jag har gravidhjärna och är trött. Jag lovar iallafall att jag ska göra mitt bästa för att det inte ska vara lika illa med framtida inlägg.

Så dagen idag då? Stackars Zack mår som sagt inte så bra, han är så himla trött stackarn och somnade med ketchup i hela ansiktet vid middagsbordet. Han har knappt ätit något alls förutom lite vid middagen, och choklad som muta så att han ska ta sin medicin utan problem. Nu sover han iallafall och så får vi hoppas att han mår bättre imorgon. Det är ju faktiskt fredag idag, och som vanligt så har vi väll inte så mycket planer för helgen. Ryan spelar på sitt nya PS VR, och jag väntar väll mest på att bebis ska komma. Nedräkningen har verkligen börjat nu för mig eftersom att Zack kom i vecka 36 så känns det som att jag väntar mig att den här bebisen också ska göra det. Det väntade jag mig med Jasper också men han kom inte förens i vecka 38, så vi får väll helt enkelt vänta och se. Jag är vecka 36 exakt idag så ifall den här bebisen ska komma ut vid samma tid som Zack gjorde så får det nog ta och sätta igång nu. Och det känns väll inte sådär jätte sannolikt.

And fast asleep..

Getting closer and closer.

Were starting to get very close to babies arrival. And to be completely honest, I’m very very ready. Its still a little bit to early and were hoping baby will stay on the inside for a little bit longer but like my midwife said last time – ill see you in two weeks, well thats if baby keeps on the inside for that long. Either way we are more or less ready now, Ive washed more or less all the clothes and the new carseats arrive tomorrow, Ive also packed my bag, well as much as I can anyway.  I really don’t feel well at all at the minute, and this is definitely my last pregnancy, I’m not putting my body through this again. I feel pretty done.
Today we went in to town for a little while, as usual I was stubborn and insisted on going. But soon got to regret that when I ended up in so much pain I wanted to cry, I have never before felt sick because of pain, but today was a first. I think ill have to start listening to my body a little bit more and to Ryan, hes been telling me to slow down for a while now, but I’m just really stubborn I guess.
I’m currently transferring all my pictures from iPhone on to my external hard drive so that Ive got some space on my phone for new pictures. Phone storage fills up way too quick. And whilst I’m at it I’m cleaning up a little bit on my desktop aswell.

Nu börjar det verkligen närma sig bebis ankomst. Och för att vara helt ärlig så är jag så otroligt redo nu. Det är fortfarande lite väll tidigt och vi hoppas att bebis håller sig i magen ett litet tag till men som min barnmorska sa senast – vi ses om två veckor, ja ifall bebis håller sig inne så länge vill säga. Nåja nu är det mesta redo iallafall, jag har tvättat i princip alla kläder, vi har köpt nya bilbarnstolar som kommer imorgon, och jag har väll packat i princip allt jag kan i förlossnings väskan. Jag mår verkligen inte alls bra nu, och det här är definitivt min sista graviditet, jag utsätter mig inte för det här något mer nu. Jag är klar helt enkelt.
Idag skulle vi in till stan en liten stund, jag är envis och vill såklart med ut och få se något annat en bara fyra väggar. Men fick snart ångra det beslutet när jag fick så himla ont att jag bara ville gråta, jag har aldrig i mitt liv mått illa pågrund av smärta innan men idag var alltså första gången. Jag får nog ta och börja lyssna lite mer på kroppen, och på Ryan. Han har klagat på mig att jag måste ta det lite lugnare ett bra tag nu, men jag är som vanligt väldigt envis.
Jag håller på och för över alla bilder från min telefon till en extern hårddisk så att jag har plats att ta nya bilder. Minnet blir fullt så himla fort. Och medans jag håller på så passar jag på att städa lite på skrivbordet på datorn också.
