Just a wee update. Went for a growth scan this morning. Baby meet all its targets and again very lively. At long last the placenta has finally moved and seems to be in the correct position.

Doppler also carried out and there are no problems with the blood supply. Yeah!!!! Been so worried about the placenta as it was a real problem the last time round.

Got sent round to daycare for BP monitoring and BP was totally normal. Also urine clear.

So we both feel happier now. We have been worrying so much lately.

Hope everyone else is well


P.s read in a magazine today that pregnant woman who have more chocolate snacks & drinks may be less likely to develop pre eclampsia.( US researchers have found). They believe theobromine the bitter tasting chemical in cocoa keeps blood pressure steady by helping blood vessels to dilate.

So all the chocolate i've been eating must be doing me good, lol!

That's great news Bell. I'm so pleased that everything was normal for you, and great that the placenta looks ok. All of us must be terrified about placentas / placentae (whatever the right plural is...!)
