This week I will keep myself busy (and not wondering when this baby is going to make it’s grand entrance into the world) by doing these things:
- Paint my nails
- Iron a whole heap of my husband’s clothes
- Bake some muffins
- Finish hand sewing the binding on the baby pram quilt
- Watch some movies
- Buy a label maker
Get my fringe trimmed
- Do some washing
- Clean the bathroom
- Learn how to curl my hair
Baby clothes are washed and packed away, hospital bags are ready…when will baby be ready?
I’ve been carrying this baby for 38 weeks and now I am growing
fatter hugely impatient to get this show on the road. It’s kinda silly really. Maybe it’s because I feel ready now. Everything is done and waiting. And as much as I am loving having time to relax I am getting rather bored of being home by myself every day. I used to sit at my desk at work and dream of all the things that I could be doing if I were at home and now that I am I can’t think of a single thing worth doing. I clean. I watch movies. I read. I cook. Blah blah blah. I get bored. So I wait…and drive myself insane wondering when this baby will choose to come into the world. When he is ready. Yes, I know that. When he is ready!
Are you ready yet baby?
I’m finally on the homeward stretch and I cannot wait to meet my little man. Having said that I am very much enjoying this quiet time now that work is done and Christmas is over. I’m certainly nesting and have cleaned and organised the baby’s room almost completely. My hospital bag is as packed as it can be. I do a little housework, I have a rest on the couch…I do a little more housework, I have a nap…it’s a pretty good life. I am well aware that things will not be this easy soon enough.
The cats seem to be enjoying having me at home. They are spending most of the day curled up on the couch beside me. Sometimes on top of me and right in my way. It’s cute though. They’ve got big changes ahead too.
Hopefully life continues on this peacefully for the next 4 weeks. My blood pressure is starting to creep up so we’re keeping an eye on that. My gestational diabetes is under control. It is a relief to know that if things start to go wrong at this point then we can get him out early without too much trouble. Hopefully we can keep him in there growing healthily and happily for at least another couple of weeks though.
Time now for some trashy daytime TV!
