I skipped last week’s pregnancy update just because not much had happened during that week. Not that a lot happened this week. I guess I’m in an easy and quiet phase now. And I enjoy it!! My belly is growing even though I’m not really gaining much weight. The important thing is that our little boy is growing fine and it seems he is. We will have a new ultrasound coming thursday so then we can see him again and see how he’s doing. But I’m confident he is ok as I’m feeling really good. I’m also curious if he has changed position, but I’m pretty sure he hasn’t! Will let you know next week!
I started swimming again as the indoor pool is open again. Besides that it’s obviously good for me to swim it also gives me some routine during the week. Since the maternity leave I have noticed that I like to have routine during the week. So I’m now going twice a week. If I may say so, I think I’m in a pretty good shape for being almost 8 months pregnant! 😀
Since last Wednesday I’m also attending a weekly pregnancy course in the hospital. The first meeting wasn’t that great. We have talked mostly about the first trimester of the pregnancy and obviously I have past that some months ago 😉 Hopefully we will soon start to talk more about the delivery as I have only 6 weeks left! We’ll see…
Best part this past week: positive news from the diabetologist and getting back swimming!

Surprises during pregnancy? The diabetologist is very positive. He said I’m doing just fine. I must continue the diet but I don’t need to see him anymore before the due date!
