35 Week Appointment & My Lie Revealed - xoxo Rebecca

35 Week Appointment & My Lie Revealed

So this will be a quick little update on the baby bump news train. Since I normally do my updates monthly, this one I thought I would share quickly because I found out a few things and will probably forget them next week when I do my official update. So there will be no baby bump photos this week but there will be on next Friday.

I am now officially scheduling my appointments one week apart now. We were doing two week appointments but I've come to the point in the pregnancy where I need to start going once a week. Baby could be on it's way anytime now.

My blood pressure was great. I have never had an issue with that so I was hoping it wouldn't start now. I feel that way at every appointment. I was a bit nervous going so I thought maybe my blood pressure would be higher but it actually was lower than two weeks ago. So that's pretty good.

Baby's heartbeat was at 145 bpm .... most people are telling me it sounds like we are having another boy. I have no idea though. Guess we are going to be finding out soon though. I still have no instinct on what I feel like the gender is.

Good news though! Baby is no longer breech and has turned head down. However, it has not dropped at all so it's still sitting super high up which makes it hard to breathe or sit almost always. Everything I feel is up in my ribs and lungs. The doctor felt around on my stomach for the head and he could feel it down but it's around my belly button and not anywhere near birthing position. I can't wait for he or she to drop finally. It will bring so much pressure and relief off my upper body.

My cyst is still in extreme pain and of course, will probably just be getting worse. Since the only thing to get rid of it is by surgery, we aren't going to go that far right now. I've been dealing with the pain for years and years. So I just have learned to deal with it. I do not take anything to ease the pain either. No meds or anything. I just try to block it out but it's hard because it's on my tailbone so sitting always reminds me it's there cause it shoots up non stop.

I have found out the reason I have been having all the pain in my pelvic and leg and lower back area. I had assumed those were just signs of preparing for labor. Come to find out it's not.

I have somehow dislocated my pelvis from my joints and that is why it has been hurting so much. And the joint that holds the one part together is very inflamed. So I have been referred to a rehabilitation bone specialist for pregnant women and waiting for them to call me to get me in. 

In the meantime, he said to try and always sit with my knees together and same with when I get up. Always have my legs together to try and push the bones back on my own for now. It's so much easier said than done. Have you tried to keep your knees and legs touching while feeling like a beached whale? Yea it's super hard and uncomfortable to say the very least.

And even though I'm set at the date of 35 weeks, my stomach is still measuring two weeks behind which puts me back to 33 weeks. But we are still keeping my due date of January 17th. So the baby maybe after the due date if I really am measuring behind. I've never had that before so I'm so confused when this baby will come now :)
And almost a week ago, I linked up with Grapefruitprincess ReLoaded for her blog hop called 5 Truths & 1 Lie. If you missed my post, you can go HERE to view it. I put down five things about me that were true and one that was completely false. Everyone that commented pretty much got it right.

Here is what I originally wrote:

1. I have had a vendetta against Santa Claus since I was 5 years old.
2. I am obsessed with coffee.
3. I went from a size 15 to a size 10 in eleven months to fit into my wedding dress.
4. I do not touch food with my hands. Everything must be cut with a fork & knife. Everything!
5. I suffered so bad from anxiety in high school, I couldn't even walk to class by myself without having panic attacks.
6. I once wrote to Madonna asking her if I could be a back up singer. Then also mentioned I was better than her.

So which one is my lie? Scroll down to see...

I honestly hate coffee with a passion. Any kind of coffee. I actually have never even tasted it and yet I could never get myself to try it. The smells alone from any coffee shop or coffee maker have just made me gag so hard. So if I can't even stand to be around the smell, I don't think I could ever bring myself to want to even attempt in tasting a cup. I have never even tried coffee flavored ice cream before.
