Hello everyone, I thought it’s about time I updated you on the pregnancy of our baby boy. Jenny is now around 23 weeks pregnant and we haven’t long seen her consultant. This was the first time we have met her and she isn’t really in our good books at the moment.
Jenny has a health condition which affects her hips so every time she is pregnant it compromises the integrity of her hips. This is why she needs to see a consultant. We went there to talk about the different options when the time comes to meet our little boy. It turns out that according to the consultant we only have one choice which is to try to reach 39 weeks when Jenny will have an elective section.
If Jen goes into labour earlier she will have to have an emergency section. This is something we don’t want because when we had Sophia Jen went into labour at 37 weeks. From what we can find out if you have had an early labour before you’re more likely to have an early labour next time.
To find out more about the last pregnancy read my article about it Are dads valued at birth.
Ignoring the consultant the pregnancy is going well and our little baby boy is getting stronger and starting to kick high and strong enough to feel and even see from the outside. I am getting so excited I just can’t wait now for our baby to be here in our arms.
Jen is still experiencing some of the crap symptoms/side effects which stops her from enjoying the pregnancy that much. I have also had to step up a lot more. I know I am her carer and help a lot with normal daily tasks but with the added weight of pregnancy it has put a bit more strain on her hips causing a lot more pain than normal.
Sophia is even getting excited and keeps hugging/kissing her baby brother. Whenever we go shopping she finds things for her baby brother. It’s so adorable.
Overall the pregnancy is going as well as can be expected and we’re both very excited.
