A Mummys View

Telling it like it is

and the verdict is….

on October 10, 2012

So on Tuesday we had our 20 week scan and I am pleased to report all went well.

Baby is developing well and there doesn’t appear to be any problems or concerns.

Today I had an appointment with my consultant and it has been confirmed that baby will be delivered by c-section at 39 weeks, due to my hips, and as my little girl was small and brought 3 weeks early I will be monitored closely to ensure that history doesn’t repeat itself.

I am glad that I know where I stand and that the consultant and midwife instantly recognised what the path should be.

They’ve also prescribed me codeine for my hips, as my regular readers will know I am disabled and have problems with my hip and back anyway. However pregnancy really seems to take it’s toll on them. I struggled when I was pregnant with my little girl, but managed to get through with the aid of my crutches and support of family and friends. This time is the same, although the pain is a lot more severe and I’ve been using my crutches more frequently in recent weeks (not easy when out and about and with a toddler on the loose, but getting by!). It’s coming to something when the physio is slightly perplexed as to how they can help you… but that’s for another post!

I haven’t been sleeping well, practically since month two, and frankly I am exhausted! I guess this is exacerbated by being uncomfortable with my hips in the night too, so hopefully the codeine will help and I will manage more than 4 hours sleep a night! (at least before the baby comes!!!)

So with all fine and well and my plans in place all that was left was to find out if our little girl would be getting a baby brother or sister. I’ve been convinced throughout that it’s a boy but hubby had a strong feeling it was another little girl. We set a bet of loser buys the takeaway that night!


Who was buying?…..


Our little girl is going to be a big sister to a baby sister!

We’re having another GIRL!!!
