5 sleeps till due date
Its my sister Kates 21st birthday today and Ive spent the day doing some general cleaning jobs around the house – quite possibly the nesting that Cade has been looking forward to. I spent a good 1/2 hour cleaning the milkshake maker – which I thought at the time was normal behaviour – Im not so sure now.
I have had contact with so many of my friends in the past few weeks, old and new, which has been nice. I didnt think that I would want to speak to anyone at this stage, that Id just lock myself in the house and be on some sort of floor cleaning frenzy, but I am feeling the total opposite. Its weird to think that the next time I speak to some of them I will be officially a “Mum”.
Speaking of Mum’s, mine arrives on Regional Express flight ZL762 tomorrow morning which I am looking forward to. Natskli and I will head to the airport to collect her and then out for breakfast. Nanny Jill (the official grandparent name) will be here for a few weeks to help us out with everything.
For people wanting to know how Baby and I are going – we are both fine. Baby’s heart rate and measurements are all good and my blood pressure is fine as well. I have lower back pain – but other than that I feel fine. Ive had fun lugging this big belly around over the past nine months, but I am looking forward to the scales going back the opposite way for a while.
