31.2 weeks from LMP, fundus measuring 31.5 cms, heart tones around 136 bpm when I checked today. I've been gaining weight consistently over the past 5-6 weeks after a little plateau, so I'm happy about that.
You know how if someone tells you not to think about elephants, then all you can do is think about them? Well, that's how it is with me and this baby's positioning. I am trying quite hard not to think about it, but sometimes I can't help it! I am truly mystified by how this baby is situated. I'm feeling kicks and slides and wiggles and punches that don't seem to add up to a baby with four limbs. It's more like an octopus hanging out in there. I tried belly mapping today but still didn't get much enlightenment. Spinning Babies is a great resource for vertex babies, but I am still not sure if this baby is heads-up or heads-down at the moment even after careful palpation, belly mapping, and listening to where heart tones are most intense. Anyway I'm just so curious to know what is going on in there with all of the movements that don't make logical sense!
I've decided to start swimming again. I swam a lot during Zari's pregnancy and really enjoyed it. I've been exercising at the gym three times a week for most of this pregnancy, but that has slowly dwindled down to nothing over the past month or two. My excuse: I want sleep more than I want to get up early and exercise before Eric goes to work! I was going to swim today over Eric's lunch hour, but when he came home I couldn't find my swimming goggles.
