It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. I thought maternity leave was meant to be restful, but it certainly hasn’t been so far! Clearly, I don’t know how to stop as it’s just been go, go, go since the day I stopped working. We even had a harebrained idea to put our house on the market and book building work the week before the baby is due. Talk about madness, the house has been full with people from morning till night, with building dust, mess and then estate agents traipsing through with confused looking people, asking why we are moving when baby is coming so soon. I know – I think we are mad and I think when it comes down to it, I don’t think we will move, we just had a pre-baby freak out about the space, but we will make it work.
Anyway, I digress – the rest of the time, tantrums, dust and estate agents aside – I’ve been busy seeing people, blogging and mostly I’ve been NESTING! How amazingly cute does our bedroom look with the Snuzpod all set up? I can’t wait to see her in it, I fall asleep every night looking into that empty crib, thinking only in a few days, there might be a new little face in there. What will she look like? Will she be pleased I’m her Mummy? So many things to think about. It feels surreal.
This is a really strange point in time, it feels like life is standing still, but it’s also moving so fast too. I’m 39+3 and if baby comes on her due date, she’ll be here by next week. I’m feeling so big, uncomfortable and so ready to meet her now. I also want to get the birth over and done with so I can stop worrying about it and doing my hypnobirthing practice. I want to start being a mother!
So, this was a rambly, almost pointless post, but the bottom line is COME ON BABY PEACHES – We are so ready for you and want to meet you now! ?
