Oh, this baby is doing a number on me this week. He doesn’t want to come out at all! These WILL be the final pictures however so I thought I would brave leggings and a vest top and record what I actually look like without being camouflaged by clothes! I think I look like a lumpy mime artist!
I give you Pregnant Ladybird:
Anyway, the past week has been ups and downs. Squigler went quiet for a couple of days so we went to the hospital to check him. At which point he started jumping around, typical. He was fine though. Went to the midwife who tried to give me a sweep but it didn’t work very well. I had a bug on Monday / Tuesday that made me very ill, and get excited that the baby was starting to come but well, it is Saturday so that is how true that was!
I am trying to stay positive but there have been loads of tears this week – last night I lost the plot completely, but no matter what my hormones throw at me it seems that it doesn’t start the baby off at all. We even tried a shock to the system yesterday, we were walking around to Paul’s Mum’s and I tripped. Luckily he was holding my hand and he grabbed me and caught me (I have no idea how!) but I hurt my tummy muscles and was very shaky and upset for a while. But nope, no baby.
I am booked in for an induction at 10am on Tuesday 28th which is the day before my birthday and two days before Paul’s so maybe the baby just wants to have a birthday in a row with ours. He has hung on long enough to be a Leo like his Mum and Dad anyway.
Well I will continue to try and stay busy and hope that he comes soon. My most recent projects:
