The other night I leaned out of bed to reach for something and well, I got stuck...it wasn't pretty. My one and only option was to call DD to help me back into bed, was there sympathy? Um no not exactly but there was a whole lot of laughing and looking for the camera, leaving me still stuck. Thankfully he finally took pity on my beach ball self and pulled me back into bed, and there is no photographic evidence, phew, dodged that one!
So I am nearly 35 weeks, that's just 5 weeks to go people and frankly it cannot come soon enough. I know Ive said it before and I will say it forever, this is my very last baby, and I know I should be relishing this last pregnancy but to be honest I'm tired and fat and uncomfortable most of the time. Now to look at me, you would think I'm a whinger. I'm not particularly huge when it comes to 35 week pregnant women, but I'm not particularly big on a good day anyway so I guess its all relative.
The down side is that my placenta is low. We will wait til the last minute to decide the right course of action but I'm praying with all my strength that the right course of action is no C section - with two crazy little boys I just can't fathom it and of course the parentals on both sides think August is a great time for a trip away - once the baby arrives, yep share the glory then take off when the hard yards kick in, so supportive aren't they!!!
According to scans its a small baby, ordinarily this would be a problem but given my 5ftness my Ob thinks this is probably a better option for me health wise. I was hoping Id be told I need 5 weeks bed rest, but sadly no. I didn't even get a no more gym talk, so its all systems go til this little darling decides to grace us with it's presence.
And the babies room, I am hanging my head in shame....its full of boxes from the move and the cot is in pieces. I do plan to rectify this, I really do. At this point with the other two it was all set up in anticipation and excitement. Hmm I better get my mojo happening before this baby is sleeping in my bottom drawer.
And so there you have it, as I said last post, there's a baby, its coming soon, I resemble a beach ball, but on the plus side in just a few more weeks my family will be complete and that is an amazing feeling.
