I could get all of the washing and housework done so there’s nothing important/urgent to do, but at the same time, I could be giving myself a facial and relaxing, maybe get an extra nap in somewhere too.
My emotions are a little all over the place. People keep saying “Oh I’ll bet you be glad when it’s all done” and things like that and yes in a way I will but there’s more to it than that.
I’ll be glad to get rid of this crazy bitch called heartburn. She’s evil and I will be happy to see the back of her. I’ll be glad to be able to get comfy at night and sleep on my front again. It will also be nice to walk upstairs without feeling like I’ve just done a marathon.
I’m nervous about the labour. In my head, it’s not as bad as everybody makes out, as long as I don’t tear and I focus on what I’m doing rather than the pain I’m sure I’ll be fine, but let’s face it, I’ve never done this before…
I’m scared of what I’ll get wrong. Yes, I come from a big family and I think I’m quite natural with kids but this one belongs to me and Liam. It’s gonna have our dysfunction and traits. (Poor sod’s got no chance haha haha)
I’m going to miss being pregnant. The wriggles and the kicks that are all mine that nobody else gets to feel. Instead of a beautiful bump, perfect for resting my drink or phone on, I’m gonna have a load of saggy flab where a baby once was.
However, I am looking forward to the moment they place him on me. I’m looking forward to his first little cry, and the expression on Liam’s face when he gets to hold his son for the first time.
I’m looking forward to the family meeting him and all having ‘their turn for a cuddle’
I’m looking forward to bringing him home and just being alone with him and Liam.
Then getting to use all the things we’ve got for him, taking him out in his pram, putting him to sleep in his bed, trying out all the different types of nappies we’ve got.
There’s a lot I’m going to miss about being pregnant. But so much more I’m looking forward to.
So, I suppose I’d better get on with this last bit of housework then….
