Before I left to have my blood pressure test this afternoon I snapped this weeks bump pix as I’m sporting my new green cardi from BigW of all places. I also have it in black lol. I also wasn’t sure how the test would go and if it would eventuate to a C-Section and I really wanted to make sure I had a record of this weeks bump. Obviously LM is quite happy where he his and no one wants him out of the oven just yet although as of today I’m officially full term and he’s welcome to vacate whenever he likes.
The back pain is a bit of a bitch but I’m managing with hot showers and heat packs. It feels like period pains only duller and I get a stinging sensation down-there and my belly seizes up. My body is gearing up for the main event I’m told and it’s very exciting. I’m still sleeping relatively well now I’m taking reflux medication, also thanks to my body pillow and awesome latex bed it doesn’t take too long to get comfy. Getting in and out of the bath is turning into a bit of a chore so I only have one once a week.
I keep dreaming of LM. What he looks like. How much hair he’ll have. What his cry will sound like. How Steve will be with him. How I’ll be with Steve. There is so much to dream and wonder about, he fills every thought. We can’t wait to meet him but if he needs a few more days/weeks to keep on cooking then so be it… not like I have much of a say anyway, we’re officially on his timetable now.
Apparently his spine was against mine during the BP test but he’s done some massive turns and tumbles since then so I’m sure he’s back in his side and he’s definitely still engaged. Our families are starting to get anxious and the calls are starting to flood in. It’s lovely that everyone is so excited for us and we can’t wait for everyone to meet him. I’m in the process of planning a picnic for my local friends a few weeks after he’s born so that’s keeping me entertained and I’m also preparing the Birth Announcements and labeling all the envelopes… eek!
