Two weeks until due date! But who know when this baby will show? I know first babies are usually late but a lady from my NCT class (who's due date was four days ahead of me) had her baby on Wednesday! I don't really mind when this baby comes now, but ideally I will be happy from 39 weeks onwards, apparently they keep to their own schedule though ;)
My mum is coming down tonight to stay until the baby is born which is a bit of a relief as then I will feel like everything is ready, plus I have spent the last few weeks being ridiculously lazy and I know she will force me to leave the house once a day which I need really.
I've been feeling ok pregnancy wise apart from the sleep thing. The pregnancy pillow is a great help but I probably only sleep about two hours before feeling uncomfortable again, I actually convinced myself I was getting bedsores the other day as my thighs and bum really ache! After Tuesday when I could hardly walk as the baby had dropped down so much he must have come back out as I don't feel that way at all now! Its funny to think he is still moving around at this stage, I still get big twists and turns which I think must be him moving from front to back, indecisive baby!
When my mum gets here I am hoping to get the final bits and pieces I may need so I feel totally sorted, so am planning a Boots, Mothercare and IKEA day! I bought my birth ball and aromatherapy oils the other day and some fairy lights to go around the pool. I even summoned up the courage to watch some home birth vids on YouTube (if truth be told I am a bit of a prude) like the hippy version of 'One Born Every Minute' I suppose. Speaking of which, does anyone remember the girl from the second series who had a water birth? She was about 22 and super beautiful? Well ever since I saw that episode and how amazing and calm she was I've kind of kept her in my head as a muse, turns out just about every pregnant lady I speak to does the same! I feel as if I should write her a letter telling her the impact she has on people!
Its totally bizarre to think I could have a baby at any minute, even more is the realisation that at SOME point this month I will definitely have a baby. December is the month! xoxo
