Bump Day. 36 weeks (and 1 day) down.
Le Bump a la Christmas. The first few days of Maternity Leave have been pretty busy, but in the best of ways. Yesterday we had a midwife appointment with our favourite lady Rose, who always leaves us feeling positive and full of beans. She makes you feel like your baby is the most important and that she's as excited as us, which is lovely and quite a feat considering she's been delivering babies for 30 years. We then spent the evening wrapping presents with pretty ribbons and paper.
Today we had our First 10 Days ante-natal class where we found out more about breastfeeding (I feel like we're so much more prepared now for what to expect) and met a couple who live 2 minutes from us, are expecting their first baby in a week and who both B and I genuinely hit if off with. We always hoped we would meet some new friends during this journey, so we exchanged numbers and plan to catch up when our babies are born. We left feeling on a real high.
So tomorrow? Coby's nativity play (he's the Innkeeper) and then I'm off to buy all the goodies for our hospital bag. Any suggestions from all those Mamas out there are more than welcome...
