Term + 7 days

Am now a week overdue.  I'm beginning to get really frustrated.  I think that's down to just being plain bored.  I haven't been out of the house all week, except from Wednesday when I went for a short walk, and yesterday when I nipped out to the supermarket.  Obviously had nothing planned for this week, as I assumed I'd be busy looking after a baby by now.

There's only so much daytime tv I can take now (and I am used to daytime tv, so that's saying something).  I can spend hours watching Judge Judy... I can't knit much at the moment either, cos I've got stupid, pregnancy related carpal tunnel so keep getting pins and needles and pains in both hands.

I've not even had so much as a niggle or a pain here and there.  This child is clearly far too cosy in there.

The Gallery: Phone Photos

The Gallery is back over at Tara Cain's Sticky Fingers blog, and the first theme of this year is Phone Photos.

Taking photos on my iPhone is a wee bit difficult these days, given that my phone currently looks like this:




As you can see, it's pretty hard to see what I'm aiming at.

However, here's a wee selection of my favourite photo's that I've managed to take on my busted phone.

39 Weeks and 5 days...

Baby's due date is Friday 6th January.  Two days away.  And yet, I'm still really calm.  I'm not at that "get out of me now" phase yet that people keep telling me about, although I could do without the sharp kicks into my ribs.  It's scaring me slightly that people around me are more uptight and seem to be more excited than I am right now.  It's not that I'm not excited, cos I really am, I'm just not stressing out.  The baby will come when it's ready.

Had an appointment with the Madwife again this morning, and since baby isn't here yet, she's booked us a date for induction (18th Jan) just in case.  But everything else is tickety boo.  Cot and changing table are built. Pram is here and set up. Set of storage drawers for the baby's room are here but not built yet. We appear to be prepared. Just a case of waiting for baby to arrive.

Tick tock, tick tock.

Meanwhile, we've had a nice festive period. Christmas was busy dotting from my mother in law's, to my grans nursing home an hour away, to my parents, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  This is also the first year I've not worked over the holidays so it was quite nice not having to compromise and got to spend both Christmas and New year with my family.  It feels a little strange not having that going-back-to-work feeling.  Not that I'm complaining, I'm actually enjoying the break!! 

It also feels strange not having the whole January diet guilt.  Every new year since I can remember I've always resolved to lose weight, which I do, then it goes back on again just as easily as it comes off.  This year, I don't really care.  I like to swim and hope to get back to it after the baby is born. 

Hopefully the next update will have pictures of our wee one :)
