35 Weeks

Yup, that's us.

I am totally out of sorts this week. Last week I went to hospital every single day. It was exhausting.
I finally got a diagnosis for my heart issue and it consists of fancy Latin words that essentially mean I have a form of tachicardia which can potentially be fixed after pregnancy with a small procedure. On my heart.
I do find that a bit frightening. I found it frightening to sit in a hospital so far away from home and be told in words I barely understand (I don't really get medical English) what they were going to potentially do, or not. It made me want to jump on a plane. I was just worried about the baby to be honest, but this condition I have is not that bad, and I have been assured by my sister I don't need to worry about it.

I am also increasingly irritable because I am now so huge and uncomfortable and the larger the size of the belly the more stupid advice I get and I really just don't want to have to listen...  I am taking time out on the couch as a result of all of this. I don't even want to call anybody, I just want to sit on the couch and wait till the world spins at a very very slow speed, just like me.

Good luck with the heart, pregnancy can raise all sorts of issues you never knew you had & it's all about the baby while you carry them. Can you find a better diagnosis explanation on line (you're German aren't you) in your language which might help??
My advice to ward off the dumb questions & unsolicited advice when you're so clearly about to have a baby . . . say "it's not my first" or something that indicates you're a baby/ child expert. Block out the horror stories, some of us had baby after baby who breastfed easily, slept soundly & were all round happy, not crying & had a supportive husband who made you feel a million dollars too, just for being so clever to make a whole person. Think uber positively, you'll be amazed. Best wishes, love Posie
