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

So, today I am 25 weeks pregnant. 15 weeks to go and counting.

Saw the midwife again today, apparently I eat too much sugary foods like chocolate (which means I have to cut down *sob* as glucose showed up in my wee wee :/ how upsetting!). I’ve only seen her 3 times but my next meeting is on the 13th of next month (3 weeks!!). Which means I am definitely getting close to my due date as the meetings are meant to get more regular the closer you get… right?)

We heard babies heart beat again ❤ It’s so precious and fast!!! she also measured my bump which was 25cm 😀 😀 cutie little bump. I’ve met women who are just as far gone as I am and they look HUGE!! I’m so happy that I’ve only got a small little bump.

Then again, I think I’m putting weight on all over which means it’s probably a boy… right? Well that’s what they say.

The cot arrived the other day!! And we put it up! I was so happy! It looks so pretty, the only thing wrong with it, which isn’t even a ‘wrong’ is that it hasn’t got solid ends, but it’s still a pretty little thing.

We’re going to get some cot bedding in October, no rush at the minute, and we’re going to start looking at sterilisers and baby monitors soon. (Never too early!)

I still can’t believe how quick this pregnancy is going. I go on maternity leave in just over a month and a half!

We painted the feature wall in the living the other day, so that’s one less job to worry about when babies here and next month we’re painting babies room ~:) we’re going for a shade called ‘Happy Yellow’ and it’s very pretty, 2 walls are going to be yellow and the other 2 are going to be cream with little yellow duckies on 🙂 (I can’t wait to start decorating! I love it!!)

15 weeks to go.
