Apologies

Sorry I’ve been a bit silent recently.  Our laptop has died ans my bb wouldn’t let me post anything.  But I have a new phone (still no laptop) and am able to post a few!!

The weaning is going really well he’s having breakfast lunch dinner pudding and snacks now 🙂 the pudding we spoon him and the rest is blw like I wanted 🙂

Picture is of little man having his dinner 🙂

He’s now almost 7 months old!! I can’t believe it! Where is the time going? ?

He has 3 teeth and another 3 looking ready to come through!  Still no signs of any words yet though.  But I ddon’t mind,  it means I can keep my baby a wee bit longer!

Old MacDonald had a Farm…..

What a bloody tongue twister that is!!

However my son loves it. He loves watching me get tongue tied attemtping to sing:

“with a moo moo here and a moo moo there, here a moo there a moo everywhere a moo moo, a baa baa here a baa baa there here a baa there a baa everywhere a baa baa…..” then a quack a cluck an oink a neigh a meow a woof a god-knows-what!!

HA!

But anyway my sioster has been doing a photograpghy project on babies and their relationships with animals, so we decided to take Little man to the farm 😀 He’s probably too young (18weeks) but he seemed to enjoy it! Will deffo be taking him again when he’s older and toddling around!

He loved the cows, and jumped a mile when they mooed and then burst out laughing 🙂 it was so funny, though he wasn’t as interested in the horses lol

It really was a lovely day out with Little Man and the Sis … first the aquarium then the farm… next time it’ll be the Zoo! 😀

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…

I am 33 weeks and 4 days. This Thursday I will be 34 weeks, and I wont lie, I just want this baby out of me, I want to be able to hold him / her, to be able to finally see the little nose and ears, to hold his / her tiny little hand and to play ‘This Little Piggy’ on my little babies tootsies.

I am constantly being kicked in the ribs and am suffering from heartburn / acid indigestion – which is awful. I can’t sleep very well, I am always way too hot I can never get comfy and if I do find a comfy spot then baby decides to wriggle and I have to dash to the toilet and then lose my lovely comfortable position.

And my partner, don’t even get me started on him! He does just not understand pregnancy, He doesn’t understand why I’m so tired all the time, I’m now on maternity leave and he thinks that I no longer have a reason to be tired… The fool! I want to slap him half the time, he tells me I can’t do this or that, then moans at me when the washing up isn’t done, because I couldn’t stand due to freakin’ pelvic pressure!! I love him, but he makes me so so mad.

I’ve got my maternity bag(s) sorted, the pram is bought (I’ve had a good play with it, running around the house) It’s a travel system from Mothercare, and I LOVE it 😀 my parents are going to have the car seat due to the fact that we don’t have a car. Babies nursery is painted, 2 of the walls are a lovely yellow and the other 2 are cream with ducks stenciled on as a border 😀 babies cot is up, am going to take the mattress out of the plastic at the start of next month, so that is it aired and fresh for babies arrival.

We have pretty much all babies essentials bought, we have his / her coming home clothes, stacks and stacks of nappies, we have the steriliser and even have babies Christmas outfit sorted 😀 (he / she is going to be dresses as a reindeer!!! – I know, so cute)!

So in all, we are prepared for baby, all we really need are the monitors and a set of curtains…

But I wont lie, I am absolutely terrified. I have NO idea what to expect when labour starts….. What if baby is too big to fit out? and I have to have a c-section? What if my baby is starved of oxygen when coming out and becomes disabled? I am terrified of something going wrong! What if I get pre-eclampsia? What if my baby is still born? I just don’t think I could handle that. I love this little sproglet so much, I couldn’t handle it if something happened…

Get this Baby Out

pregnancy and pain

Ok, so I know mothers, well mothers to be, are meant to love their bumps and little unborn babies, but currently I am finding it very and I mean VERY hard to find any love at this particular moment in time.

My little sproglet is laying on my spine and has been for the last 4 days.Every time he / she moves around I feel as if my spine is about to snap in half. It cannot be comfy for baby so I have no idea why he / she is this position, I mean it certainly isn’t comfy for me. I mean it feels as if baby is trying to kill me!! The other night I was in tears it was so painful! I’m telling you, I have no idea how I’m going to survive labour. 

And because of this I have turned into a BITCH. I mean a mega bitch on an epic scale. I snap at everyone, I almost bit some woman’s head off at work today because she wanted an americano with hot milk on the side, AS IF ANYONE HEATS UP A TINY BIT OF COFFEE AT HOME?!?! Why waste my time when normal cold milk is probably what they have normally anyway?!?! 

And to make matters worse, my partner doesn’t have a clue what to do, he sits or lays there helplessly as I cry in pain, bless him.

I just cannot wait until December when I can get this little sproglet out of me. At least then I wont have to curse it for the pain my spine is in.
