It’s been nearly a month since my last update. Now I’m at the 24 week stage. Although I still haven’t seen my midwife, that’s not until the end of the month when I’m 28 weeks. I have been in to see a consultant. He went over the details of my last pregnancy with baby girl. It’s funny as I don’t remember some of the things he read from my notes about the previous pregnancy, I must have been out of it!
Anyway he went through all the options because I had a previous emergency c-section and came to the conclusion that the less risky thing to do would be to have a planned c-section. To be honest it’s a huge relief off our shoulders. I had a terrible time at baby girl’s birth due to the failed induction, so the safest for baby and I is to have everything planned.
It’s exciting as he phoned the delivery suite straight away and booked in my c-section for a date (I’m not going to share just yet!) in April. I know when my baby girl is going to be here!!
This past week I had to contact my midwives office to get my MATB 1 form. I’m lucky due to the fact that the company I work for provide full pay for the first 14 weeks of maternity leave. I have worked out all my outstanding holiday dates to add to the date I finish work and therefore start my maternity leave on March 15th. It doesn’t seem that far away now!
I feel it’s important for me to spend some time with baby girl before the new baby arrives and by finishing at this date it gives us some time.
