Last post before baby?

Right. Well. So. There's about 10 hours to go now before I'm due at the hospital. I have been very good at keeping busy all day, the only thing I didn't manage to do was scrub the bathroom. But I'm sure mum wont mind too much. I'll give it a once over with a sponge and spray after I wash in the morning, it'll only tale 5 mins in my tiny tiny bathroom.

I'm sat here in my nightie and robe, with my penultimate raspberry leaf tea. I'm saving the last one to have with breakfast. The kitchen is gleaming, Jack is tucked into his cot (reluctantly, but I explained that Nana needed to borrow his bed just for a few nights and he accepted it, bless him). We've all had a lovely roast pork loin dinner. The cupboards are full of shopping and everyone has clean bedding. Bags are all packed and ready to go.

All I  need to do now is dry my hair and try to get a good night's sleep. We've opted to get a taxi to the hosp in the morning rather than have mum take us, mainly so that Jack wont get upset when we get out of the car and he doesn't. This way we can say bye and he can shut the front door on us, rather than us walk away from him. He finds that easier to deal with...

I'm reasonably relaxed about the whole thing now. I'm going to miss Jack terribly. I have some slight concerns about what if the induction doesn't work as well as it could and baby gets into distress but I'm sure that's just nerves. The RLI are very good and I know we're in safe hands. I'm just ... well, it's like a kid waiting for Christmas or something. That'll be the only reason I don't sleep well tonight. Excitement, not worry or stress.

So really this is my fair ye well and see you on the other side post, because I can't see me having any time to post in the morning. Not if we have to be out of the house by 7.40am. I've got used to not getting out of bed till 8am! Those of you on the forum, I have people who will up date that for me as I progress (or not as the case may be to start with) and for everyone else, my sister-in-law Jenny has agreed to update my facebook wall with updates too. http://www.facebook.com/charliebeth.chig

Bye for now!!!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
