My Doctor complemented me on the growth ..she said i looked bigger!!...cool especially after the whole wide world telling me that i looked small for the number of months....yippeeee...so happy.
Considering that full term means anywhere from 38 to 42 weeks, i guess the Big day is not too far.
The usual pain in my pelvic girdle and hips doesnt seem much like a pain compared to the horrible hyperemesis i went through in the earlier months.
A bit anemic so have been prescribed Ferrous Sulphate tablets....a blood test on Monday....seems a bit late for antenatal classes but nevertheless will call on Monday and definitely attend if i get a chance.
Rest is cool.

Just 8 more weeks to go ...yipppeeeeeeeee!!
After 6 months of severe sickness due to Hyperemesis, n number of Cyclizine and Ranitidine medication .....i have reached the 8th month...feel triumphant already.
I came off Cyclizine...it took me a good week to do without it...last week..but i managed ....so here i am now taking only Ranitidine....2wice a day........i tried cutting that down to 1 tablet but the acid was so severe that i ended up not eating anything ..so decided to caary on with Ranitidine.
It's rather disappointing when people around boast that they never took any medication for acid during pregnancy....but now i have given up on explaining the fools that each pregnancy is different......Given a choice i would obviously choose a medication free natural pregnancy.
Going for check up every two weeks. Things are good (touchwood!) and the baby kicks and jostles day and night....hahahahha.....fun to see my tummy in crests and troughs....sweeet.
Just 8 more weeks to go and that doesn't seem too far!!!

My medicine doses have come down. Now i am on one cyclizine and one ranitidine in the morning...that's about it....keeps me going throughout the day..
No cravings so far..buti make it a point to eat something every 2-3 hours....it starts with biscuits and medicine in the morning, followed by milk and toast at mid day, lunch around 2:30 pm, a snack around 5:30 and dinner at 8 includes an egg and some salad.
Good news is that my weight has remained constant at 57 kgs ...not gone down....so i'm happy.
Am now classified under "low risk pregnancy" so a midwife will do all followup appointments.
Finally starting to feel positive of this pregnancy.
I still am unable to travel by bus or cab because it brings on the sickness....cancelled the Greece trip coz of this.....and now back to good old walking.
Working from home.....so quite busy 10 to 6.
All well so far and hopefully will continue to be so.
