Daisy- good to hear from you and that your cervix has stabilized. Wishing you the best as you had towards delivery. Are you due in July? Have you decorated the nursery? Is the baby going to sleep in your room or will you sleep with her in the nursery? Glad you wrote on here. It's been a long time. I am planning to keep mine in my room for a while but just need to have his room ready anyways.
I also got the vaccine, it was an agonizing decision making process for me as it was offered when there were no studies yet on pregnant women. I kept postponing it until I was well into the second trimester. I have received both shots and thankfully didn't get sick/feverish as others have. I'm happy I took it especially after the recent evidence that antibodies are passed on to the baby.
Yesterday I had my follow up anatomy scan and an ECG. Baby looks good and is on track for his age 24 weeks weight 700g.
I will be doing a diabetes test in the next four weeks. I will also be taking some immunoglobulin for Rh factor antibodies since I am negative and hubby is positive.
I have started buying items for the nursery and we are planning to paint it next week. I'm not due until the end of August but curious what you guys are packing in your delivery bag
