just went for checkup last Sat at my 31 weeks and gynae said my boy is already nearly 1.8kg! he was shocked! I was even more shocked by his expression and starts to get worried if I'll have difficulty delivering. He asked me to cut down on rice and noodles and emphasise that I must excercise more.. I only merely passed the glucose test.. now I'm headache whenever I eat outside.. he gave me a sample menu for diabetics and ask me to refer it...
from my first visit to the gynae at 52.6kg, now I weighed 60kg.. gaining 7.4kg.. considered okay? I was also given a Obstetric Admission Sheet and was instructed to have it with me everywhere I go..
the ultrascans shows that the baby's legs are on my right and I guess he's at the 180 degrees position and starting to turn.. last night, we had the most happiest moment.. the baby moved for about 1 min (non-stop movements) and we can see that he is pushing my belly to my left.. he used to only have a few kicks/ pushes on and off..
will be starting my 3 weeks checkup for my next visit...

my butt pain will tend to stretch to my thigh. when i sit, sleep or walk too long. sometime will lead to headaches also.

Never mind about the weight gain. If baby is okie thats most important. Butt ache Is very common after sitting too long.. You should use a pillow to support your tailbone at all times while you are sitting. you can ask you hubby to massage for you to ease the aching of the tailbone.
I went for my gynae checkup last saturday and my boy has turned head down already. He has been kicking my ribs and making me short of breath at times too.
I've already put on 14.3kg at week 28. But doctor said everything is ok and fine for me, so no worries. Also had my first episode of painful contractions/cramps over the weekend. Lasted 5 mins each for about 3-4 times...and the tummy became hard as a rock. Was worried for a while, but luckily they went away... I guess these were the strongest Braxton Hicks contractions that I have experienced so far.
Oic. I only started getting it last week. First started when I took the mrt for quite a distant, and when I tried to get you can you imagine the pain. I think I kind of froze in my half standing half sitting position for awhile cos of the ache..haha
So the next time I shall bring along a pillow to cushion my butt in mrt. Hopefully I wont be photographed and posted on Stomp.
I got some painful cramps as well. Spoke to my doc but he said could be due to my posture. My pain is usually at the bottom of the belly, so he asked me try not to compress my tummy while sitting. How about yours?

do you excercise? hmm.. so I guess I'm still on the right track? but still worry that I'll have difficulties pushing the baby cos I dont excercise.. only do some stretching in office after sitting for some time.. doing housework at home and had some perspiration..
Yes I do exercise quite a bit. I swim once every 1-2 weeks, and walking is a daily affair for me (maybe because my job is operations in nature) sometimes I even get to walk for about 1-2 hours per day. Housework too...every weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to push properly when the time comes... I have a feeling this is going to be a big baby. :P
