Third trimester: Weeks 32 – 33

Week 32 (September 7)
Whether I was sitting, walking, or laying down, this baby was on the move this week. He didn’t want to keep still. Plenty of hiccups, too! At the end of the week I saw one of my midwives. My blood pressure was 98/64 and baby’s heart rate was in the 140s. Fundal height measured at 32 cm. Kilmeny said that the baby was head down and floating, but there’s plenty of time for him to make his way into my pelvis. I have an ultrasound, to confirm his position, scheduled for next week.


Weeks 32-33

Week 33 (September 14)
On Monday I had an ultrasound at Pembroke Hospital. Baby Boy is definitely head down! His back is curled around my left side, hence the constant bulging there, and his feet at my ribs. No wonder I constantly feel like he’s booting me on the right side of my rib cage. The tech showed me the baby from head to toe on the screen. It was so cool to get to see him again! And the rest of the week was uneventful.
