We hope you had a great Easter, ours was lovely! We kicked it off on Good Friday
with a trip to Surrey Wheels Day with wonderful friends, Easter Sunday we had
a family lunch with hilarious Easter egg hunt clues made by my Dad, and yesterday
comprised of a visit to the cinema and a cheeky Wagamama's. All of this interspersed
with lots of painting (as we've just had a walk in wardrobe fitted). Most of our social
media platforms have been very quiet as we've been busy getting some quality family
time in now that I'm in the final stretch of my pregnancy - yikes!!
With exactly 1 week to my due date I can safely say that I'm thoroughly excited and
that I've had enough too. I know my bump isn't massive (but neither am I at 5'), but
I think everything is in proportion and I've had more than enough now of the relentless
kicking and elbowing, hiccups, searing heartburn from fresh air and constant wee's.
I've got to say though that this pregnancy has been a breeze in comparison to my first.
Maybe it's because you don't concentrate on it as much as you've already got your
hands full with child number 1, plus a growing business and freelance work. Yep,
things have been busy! I should be putting up my feet this week but I'll most likely
be painting our new wardrobe and helping to put blinds and posters up :D
I definitely don't like to sit around on my bum for too long.
Although I then get incredibly tired!!
So the impending birth became more of a reality when the midwife dropped around
with the gas and air....Uh huh, I'm going to go for a home birth. I'm not some crazy
woman who is determined to have one no matter what, but going on both of my
sisters' second birth's it might be a wise idea as they had their second babies
incredibly quickly! I'm hoping for the same and then I won't have the rigmarole in
leaving the hospital and Evie can come back sooner to meet the new family member.
All sounds perfect - let's just see what happens, I might want drugs, and home births
obviously don't provide that, it's natural all the way, sheesh, I kinda like drugs ;D
James raised a good point yesterday, ready made meals!! When are we going to get
the time to cook in the first few weeks? Hmmm if only there was a service like
Meals On Wheels for new mum's and dad's... nutritious meals that provide all
the vitamins and minerals you'd need to help boost your energy and help with
breastfeeding.....Maybe this is my next venture!!
