Mid wife also remarked she thinks Olivia is pretty big, it was super easy for her to figure out the position. Olivias heart was beating a 165 BPM and she was sure to show the mid wife some of her cool moves! :p I now see my mid wife every 2 weeks and Friday the 27th we are going for our hospital registration to discuss our birth plan and we will see olivia in a ultrasound! so exciting! getting close! also i have gained 25 pounds so far. mid wife says im looking great and will probably gain another 5 before shes born which is good 😀

 Symptoms: Well there’s quite a few actually! Firstly I have started experiencing some lower back pain. It is not constant but if I am out in town a long time it will ache a bit.  I have been doing lots of pelvic tucks and using my birthing ball loads to help with the back pain, but its really not that bad or all that often. Iv been alot more snappy especially when I am uncomfortable I get irritated easily.  Braxton Hicks. My braxton hicks contractions have been a little more frequent I get them anywhere from 5 to 7 times everyday all at random times. I also am experiencing a little bit more pressure on my pelvis but its only sometimes.

 Best Moment of the week? Going Blueberry picking was amazing. There is this little place about a 25 minute walk from our house in the fields where you can go blueberry picking and there is a little mini farm where you can buy cakes and there are beds to eat outside and pigs and goats and a corn maze. Its amazing I will have to film a video there. I cant wait to bring Olivia one day!
Looking Forward to: I have got lots to look forward too! I am looking forward to my midwife’s appt this wednesday! I love seeing her and Im eager to know what position olivia is in. Also our stroller could be here any day now, we ordered it a month ago and they said it could arrive 4 to 6 weeks after we purchased it so hopefully SOON! I am also looking forward to getting the nursery done!
