34 Weeks

From 3dPregnancy..

"This week I am going to turn my head downwards because that feels best to me."

I know for sure that Baby is already in that position since the last checkup, so it's a good sign. :)

"In the coming weeks his head will go down further behind the pubic bone. The pressure of the growing baby and your loosening pelvis will allow the baby to descend lower and lower in your pelvic region."

Hmm... So maybe that was what happened yesterday!

"Lying on your back is not so good because then the weight of your uterus presses on the major abdominal artery and the lower vein as a result of which your baby can get less blood supply. Your baby will let you know if you are reducing his blood supply by squirming, kicking, and generally letting you know you should move!"

Darnn... All these while, I thought that was amusing to watch Baby move! Sorry, Baby.. Mummy won't do that again..

"If you notice a pattern to the contractions, if they are longer than 45 seconds to a minute, if they command your attention and you can't talk or move through them, and if they are getting closer and closer together, these are signs of early labor contractions."

So I've got to watch out for this!

Anyhow, 6 more weeks till Baby arrives!!! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!!
