38 Weeks

I went to see the gynae again this morning for my second CTG scan. The last time was pretty uneventful, but today, she determined that my cervix has already begun to dilate! About 1-2cm. Eeek... I'm not sure I'm mentally ready to deliver! I met Rosa who is about 4-5 months pregnant yesterday and she told me that a friend of hers had a 10 minute delivery for her first baby! That really gave me a lot of hope!

However, I also received a bit of scary news. My gynae will be away for three days starting on my due date, so hopefully I will go into labor either before or after then! I don't feel very comfortable having some other gynae monitoring the labor process.

In other news, I've been feeling really heavy these days. My weight was 71kg this morning. Most times, it feels more like 100kg. Walking for more than 30mins usually means I'll be bedridden for the rest of the day. It also hurts to roll sideways in bed because of how heavy my belly is.

I'm really grateful for all the small and big sacrifices that people around me have been giving to try to make life easier for me. Most of it is from Jerry of course... But I am also really thankful to my relatives who have all done nice things to help make this pregnancy better.

It's just a matter of days now I suppose. I am on 38 weeks today so... Anytime now and I will get to see his sweet little face :D
