Christmas 2008

Thanks for all the Christmas wishes/emails etc. I meant to get on here before Christmas to wish all my blogging friends a Happy Christmas but never got round to it! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

For those that have been wondering, there's no sign of baby yet. Im due one week tomorrow!! Im fed up now - tired, swollen, uncomfortable in all positions etc etc At my last appointment with my midwife, baby still hadnt dropped into my pelvis so she thinks i will be late. I really hope i dont have to be induced but i have to say, it really doesnt feel like its gonna come out soon!

We had a nice Christmas. On Christmas eve i ended up having to venture to the shops for some last minute things. Then i came home and baked 2 banana loafs and some gingerbread men. In the evening we went out for a Chinese meal with my family which was the best Chinese food ive ever had! Christmas day was spent at my mum and dads house with my aunt and uncle and my Gran. My sister was at her in-laws this year. On boxing day, my mum and dad came to mine and i cooked a Shepherds pie and then we watched my favourite Christmas movie - Elf. Yesterday, DH and I walked for an hour and then i came home and slept for 2! I was pretty wiped out all day yesterday actually.

I slept so badly last night that we skipped church this morning. Today i plan on getting some baby things organised. I dont feel like baby is gonna come soon so ive been delaying all the things i really need to do, like pack my hospital bag, sort out the baby's crib/clothes etc etc Thats what this week holds in store!

Glad to hear you had such a nice Christmas. Love the baby shot!
Hmmm - do I hear nesting instinct kicking in? Maybe that little one will appear soon.

I'm feeling for you...those last days sure do seem to last forever! My little guy is 2.5 months now, and it seems like just yesterday I was still pregnant! Glad your Christmas was nice...

My first went to 42 weeks, at which time they said they'd put me in the hospital & induce labour. I was terrified. I called an acupuncturist who did house calls and after a 45 minute treatment, I went into labour naturally and before the following morning, I had a big, bouncing, baby boy. :D

Good luck with EVERYTHING and rest whenever you get the chance. (Easier said than done, I know.)

Still waiting huh? I hope all goes well.

Sounds like you had a nice Christmas.

Hope BabyT makes his/her appearance for you soon.

DaisyGirl said...

Hope Baby T comes soon! M Jason was 4 weeks early and Jacob was 3 weeks late! So who knows! Hope that when the time does come, you have a easy labor and that it doesn't take forever!
Thinking of you!

I'm so glad you checked in .. I've been thinking about you! Remember that first babies can be late .. just listen to your body and rest when you need.

Sounds like a great Christmas!

Happy New Year :)

Sounds like you had a lovely Christmas. I hadn't seen Elf before, but caught it on TV this year, cute movie.

Suzanne said...

I was 10 days over due with my first one and I spent the entire 10 days stitching furiously in attempt to get my mind off the waiting. My second one was only three days late, so that wasn't too bad.

I can tell by the photo that the baby hasn't dropped yet. I knew with both my girls when they dropped, because I had trouble going to the toilet in the few days before they were born and my tummy was hanging low.

Good luck and I wish you all a very Happy New Year!

Beatrice said...

I'm so glad you are having a nice break and that you had a good Christmas.
Now I will wish you and yours a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Heather said...

Yumm, shepherd's pie!
