Pregnancy Diary Week 36

This week of pregnancy has been quite eventful really. We had our scan on Tuesday to find out whether the baby was still breech, and got a little bit more than we bargained for as the powers that be decided that, despite a normal growth scan at 34 weeks, the…

Pregnancy Diary Week 34

The last week of my pregnancy has been all about the growth scan and the position of baby. As you may know, she’s presented as breech on scans at weeks 28 and 32, and at the 32 week scan it was suggested that we consider a caesarean if she’s still…
