I’ve been AWOL……I was all set to start blogging again last week after the Christmas/new year break but to be honest, with all the flooding and devastation around Australia, it all felt a bit frivolous!
Whilst we had PLENTY of rain here, we have no flooding unlike other towns around my area. Hubby got stuck in the town where he works last week overnight and had to drive home the next morning through flood waters before it rained even more! Lucky he did, otherwise he would of been stuck until yesterday.
So this below (see that fat woman?) is me at 34 weeks….HUGE and as my OB said “I breed them big”……oh and that was 2 weeks ago! Good thing to know is that I am now heavier than at the end of my pregnancy with Hugh and heavier than my husband (isn’t that always a feel good moment?!).
I think I’ve started nesting (not in the cleaning sense, but feeling the need to be organised) and have my list of things I want to get done around the house before baby arrives. My due date is the 12th Feb, but I’m booked in for a c-section so we know when #2 is coming and we also know the sex (I don’t think I had mentioned that before – we had the sex sealed in an envelope at the 20 week scan and Matt got sick of me walking out of the nursery saying “well if it’s a girl, I will do blah blah blah but if it’s a boy I’ll do blah blah blah, so he opened it as a bit of a birthday present back in October!). Keeping it all a secret and only 2 people know when (my mum and dad, so they can look after Hugh) and only 1 other person knows the sex (Matt had to tell his boss…..yes they are very good mates), so I’ve been busy painting the nursery and organising bits and pieces – although I am still a while off finishing it.
Oh and we had another scan at 30 weeks to double check how it’s kidney’s were going (at 20 weeks they weren’t filtering urine properly) and we got the all clear, which was a lovely relief! We also got the most gorgeous 3D shot of bubba…..
I’m generally EXHAUSTED and not sleeping well but it comes with the territory, so I suck it up and move on…well actually I do sook about it. I’m usually up until at least 12.30 (I’m not really a night owl) watching terrible TV and searching the net for things to keep me occupied.
So enough about me! I hope you had a lovely Christmas and new year and it’s back to normal for me….for the next few weeks anyway!
