Pregnancy Update: 35, 36 and 37 Weeks

My last update was 32, 33 and 34th week. My Prenatal check up was postponed for several times already, but I was able to meet up with my OB last October 24 and today, November 4.

October 24, I had my Ultrasound done to check baby's position and the gender. But unfortunately at that time baby's still on breech so again we are unable to determine the gender. My unborn baby also weighs less, just 2371 grams or 5.2 pounds which made a difference on the my expected delivery date, instead of November, it showed as December 7, 2013. I was worried that my baby weighs less when I know that I am eating a lot and that I take on my daily vitamins. However I was a bit guilty since I always sleep late at night.

Moving on, today again I went for my weekly appointment with my OB anticipating a good news. And guess what? Finally my unborn baby was able to maneuver inside my womb in to a favorable position, yes he/she is now on Cephalic presentation. That explains the pain I felt a few days ago. The pain was kind of unbearable I even thought I am already having a labor. So it only means, I will be having a normal delivery, and we'll be able to find out the gender. However I preferred to keep it a suspense for another week, we'll get to know the gender on my next visit. My unborn baby also gained weight, my expected delivery date again varied from Dec.7 to December 1. But nothing is certain, basing on my LMP (last menstrual period) it should be November 15, 2013. So I am really getting anxious as early as now, because it could be earlier.

So nowadays, as my anxiety increases I am also feeling that my energy is decreasing. I am feeling unusually lazy that I don't get to do the things that I used to enjoy. I am sleepy even when I just woke up and it goes on all through out the day. Well as they say I gotta save my energy for the big day, and yes that's what I'm going to do!
