I’m now entering the final month of my pregnancy. It’s been a long journey and I can definitely feel the effects of gravity on my body. Most of my spare hours these past few weeks have been spent in bed… not necessarily sleeping, but just lying down. The weight of my belly is really pushing down hard on me pelvis, back and legs, as well as upwards against my chest and lungs.
I’m hoping for a last burst of energy to finish off some of my baby sewing projects still outstanding and other final nesting things like house cleaning, packing my hospital bag and putting the final touches to baby’s room.
Until then, I’m spending my spare hours resting my tired, stretched body and dreaming about all the lovely things to look forward to when baby arrives…
10 things I am looking forward to when baby pops out
Being able to utilize the remaining 90% of my wardrobe again
Not having my bladder being used as a squeeze toy all day long
Having my mum here to cook and look after us
Being able to give proper, close, tight hugs again
Indulging in a big plate of sashimi
Enjoying that celebratory glass of champagne
Babywearing a little one again
Sniffing that heavenly new baby smell
Having a little girl to dress up in pretty things
Finally being able to meet and welcome this little person into the world and our family
