35 Weeks Pregnant!

35 weeks! On the whole I feel like this pregnancy has gone quite fast but now that I'm on the home stretch it seems to be slowing down a bit and time is starting to drag. I've been told by the diabetic doctors that they will induce me at 38 weeks so knowing that I only have 3 weeks left is probably not helping with the time dragging issue! 

On the whole I feel okay. I ache everywhere and walking is a bit of a chore but it could be worse. I'm managing my gestational diabetes quite well, apart from the odd high number here or there. I had to start insulin with my breakfast because any food would send my numbers soaring but since starting on 4 units each morning I've only had one high breakfast reading so it's doing it's job :) I'm really starting to miss being able to eat what I want when I want but knowing that there is light at the end of the tunnel makes it not so bad.. I have a big list of food that I want to eat after the delivery. The first thing is a big bowl of cereal. Just normal cereal! 

Sleep. Oh how I miss sleep. My middle of the night insomnia did disappear for a couple of weeks but it is back with a vengeance now. Most nights I wake to go to the toilet between 3-5 times, plus around 1am I tend to wake up for at least an hour. It's amazing how you learn to survive on so little sleep.

My hospital bag is all packed. James and Emilie's bags are all ready to go. Emilie came at 37 weeks so I might not even make it to my induction. Baby boy is still breech at the moment. He could still turn on his own but if he doesn't then I've decided not to have the ECV procedure. It only has a 30% success rate and at the moment I feel like I'm dealing with so many medical issues and hospital appointments that it's just one more thing that I would have to cope with that might not work. If he stays breach then we'll go the alternative route for delivery. As long as he arrives happy and safe then it doesn't matter to me how he comes out!

Has anyone had a breach baby turn after 35 weeks? I'd love to hear from you if you have!
