This week I had my 36 week midwife appointment. All is great, the baby is growing well and I'm measuring about 36cm at 36 weeks, which my midwife tells me is perfect. I'll talk about this more in my update post tomorrow, but as the baby is now engaged I've been relieved of some of the heartburn and difficulties with eating I had been experiencing in previous weeks.
Having to eat smaller portions meant that whilst the baby is growing no problem, my weight has actually gone down a fraction from what I weighed at 34 weeks so I'm looking forward to getting back to normal this week and enjoying the odd treat or two seeing as I've only got the 'I'm pregnant so I can' excuse for a little while longer!
Whilst I might be able to eat a little more normally now though I'm still keen to get as many nutrients for my calories as possible so today I made a homemade berry smoothie for an afternoon energy boost.
To make the smoothie above I literally threw together a handful of strawberries and blueberries, a banana and two tablespoons of yoghurt then blended it together until smooth. You can add a little milk to loosen it too if it's too thick for you. This smoothie is packed full of calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin K and C and a load of fibre, so it's pretty good and as it's made with yoghurt and milk rather than juice the higher protein content fills you up a bit more. Have a blast and see what you think of it.
