Yep, here I am, over 8 months pregnant and not massive I suppose.
In fact it's gone down in size by 6cms!? How is that possible?
I have to go for a scan next week to see what's going on but the baby
is moving around constantly so I'm not freaking out.....I don't mind being
small as I am only small myself! At only 5' I wouldn't want a ginormous belly,
I would be a Weeble. Plus this means it'll be a smaller baby to deal with on the
exit. Ahhhh labour, that glorious thing - I haven't given it a thought. Evie took
ages (33 hours) and was fairly traumatic so I'm hoping this one will literally just fall
out! Like when 21 year old Jessica Wynter gave birth in her onesie just by getting
out of the car! Yes that is true, check it out here. She didn't even realise! And that's
how it's going to happen with me, ah yes, one cough and out it'll fly, Super Baby.
So being 36 weeks means that I need to get all the baby stuff and start getting
sorted just incase it decides to rear it's head early, and my god, isn't there a lot
of stuff that you have to get? I totally forgot. The romantic joys of buying boob pads,
maternity pads, nipple cream, milk expressers, nappies, nappy bags.
The list is endless!
I've also been getting suuuuuuuper tired, not everyday but some days just wipe
me out. The merest of things like having a shower and getting dressed and I'm
huffing and puffing like Pete's Dragon, maybe that's been the smog too?
We are looking forward to meeting this new team member, especially Evie who
loves kissing the bump, it's very sweet. I just hope that carries on once the baby
is actually here! Although I reckon a lot of poking and prodding will be going on.
Names are still slightly elusive and I'm sure we'll be scribbling them down furiously
whilst I'm in labour again.
Our baby's first outfit will be no less than a Mysterio tshirt, it's always fun to see what
future they're predicted, plus some trousers with feet. These are essential, well I think
so anyway, who wants to faff around with socks that just keep coming off?
And the Noodle Ricestorm will be an ace first, squidgy toy.
