So, again I have left it absolutely ages since I last posted. I would have liked to post about my labour and adjusting to having a little spoglet around the house, but alas, no such post can exist seeing as my little trooper has decided that my womb is much too warm and cosy to leave.

I am now 4 days over my due date, and my god it is testing my patience! I set myself up for having a baby by now but instead I still have a bump. It is actually rather upsetting… you think you’re going to have a baby by your due date (you know that there’s always a chance that you’ll go over, but you don’t really think it’ll happen to you) and then your due date comes and goes and it really is heart-breaking 😦

I just want to see what my baby looks like, I want to know if it’s an Annabelle or an Oscar, I want to know how heavy he / she is, I want to hear them cry, I want to have their little fist grab my finger, and most of all, I want to be able to hold them close and know that I am finally a mother, to feel the bond that mothers have with their child.

We’ve bought him / her Christmas presents, I know it’s a bit ridiculous seeing as baby wont even realise that it’s Christmas, but I couldn’t resist! My own parents have bought him / her something too, it’s really cute, all my family are so excited! Next time I don’t think i’ll tell people the due date as I’m inundated with calls and texts asking if baby has arrived yet! It’s quite upsetting having to say ‘No’ all the time!

And the wait continues…
