Four weeks to go! I’ll keep this one short and sweet…
I’ve had a great week but today I feel a bit all over the place, emotionally. It’s to be expected – I’m not sleeping well due to continued hip pain so I’m tired as well as hormonally-charged, which isn’t the best combination. Today I had a big cry and I feel better for it, but I think the next few weeks will be an emotional rollercoaster. As someone who usually operates on a pretty even keel it’s hard to deal with seesawing feelings, but I’m hoping I can just ride it out.
In other news, we had our last NCT session yesterday and went for a drink with some of the group afterwards. It’s been so lovely to meet people going through exactly the same things we are – as adults, I think it’s pretty difficult to meet new friends and it’s especially difficult when you work from home without colleagues to socialise with. Babies seem to be the perfect conversation starters, though, and I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone and their prospective offspring!
I had my 36 week midwife appointment on Monday and everything is super positive, so when I feel a little bit sad I just remember that Baby A is doing fantastically and it won’t be long till she’s here with us. My midwife told me she’s in a great position for labour and her head is engaged, so here’s hoping these last few weeks fly by!
