Happy Monday!

Why is it that the harder it is to bend down to pick something up, the more you seem to drop things. Elisabeth spends quite a lot of time picking things up off the floor that I’ve dropped, it just takes up so much energy to do it myself and whilst she still likes helping her mummy, I will take full advantage of that.

Today it is 10 days until the due date of Baby Newman no.2, and to be honest we’re all a bit surprised he is not here yet. Elisabeth was 10 days early so we were thinking he would be even earlier, not the case. Clearly he is too nice and snuggly in there. But we are really getting close now, so I’m trying to enjoy some positive things.

Yes, it might come as a shock but there are a couple of positives at the moment:
1 – I am sleeping reasonably well, in between the 4 or 5 nightly toilet breaks I am actually getting quite a bit of sleep. There have been a few very early mornings where I couldn’t get back to sleep (Friday morning it was 3.30 which made for quite a difficult day), but considering that I am not a good sleeper at the best of times I am pretty pleased with my nighttime rest.
2 – After months of back pain, I finally seem to have gotten rid of it. Partly thanks to a brilliant physio department in my local hospital and partly thanks to my great husband who does pretty much everything for me so I can get as much rest as possible.

So even though I still hate being pregnant (and I will definitely never ever do it again), I’m reasonably positive and I will even let people get away with saying “not long now!”

Please note that I wrote this post in the morning which means I still have a tiny bit of energy left, if I would have written this a few hours later it would be a completely different story, believe me, mornings are good, afternoons suck big time!

Happy Monday everyone!

  1. Happy morning darling, I hope it will be a very happy day for you. I gave baby Newman 2 a ring last night, I asked him to open that magical door, but he didn’t answer. He likes your tummy. It,s warm and safe. Be strong darling, see you soon.

  2. I was thinking your due date was soon…You’ve had a difficult time these past months… but I imagine the anticipation now is still exciting. I remember wondering those last two to three weeks about seeing that little one actually coming into the world and my husband any my lives.. Let us know even in a short blog for sure when he/she arrives… I can’t remember if you know whether it’s a girl or boy yet… Diane
