The Last Few Days

In four days time I will hold my baby in my arms. After carrying him in my growing tummy for nine months, 40 weeks, 280 days, he will be here. In my arms.

Throughout this pregnancy I haven't really thought too much about the growing life inside of me, or of how life will be once he is born. With another child to tend to, I have been too busy concentrating on her needs. Yet as I sit here, feeling him moving around inside me, there is a growing realisation that on Monday, come what may, I will hold my son in my arms. That I will once again be a mummy. That I will have two precious babies to care for.

I'm not quite sure which emotion I feel more strongly. Excitement to meet our long-awaited little boy and hold him for the first time. Anxiety at the surgery I am due to undergo and recover from. Emotional at the thought of being away from my little girl for so long. It all hits me one by one, in waves, making this whole thing seem so overwhelming.

So in my last few days as a pregnant mummy to one little person, here is what I am looking forward to. Holding my boy for the first time, hearing him cry and cuddling him close. Being able to stand, walk or bend over without pain. Wearing all the lovely summer clothes that hang in my wardrobe, gathering dust. My little girl meeting her brother for the first time, and probably not being interested at all. And the completion of our family.

Baby Boy's Nursery

After much time planning, buying and making, this last weekend saw the completion of Baby Boy's nursery - only one week before my due date! So I wanted to share some pictures of the finished room. 

My Week That Was - Finally the nursery is ready!

This will probably be my last weekly update for a while, as within the next week I will have a new little bundle of joy occupying my time! Come on Baby Boy we are all ready for you now!

A Haven

I'm not sure why but there is something about my little girl's bedroom that makes me feel so at peace. When I was pregnant with H I loved planning her nursery - the colours, the furniture, the decor. I spent many hours making things to decorate the room and once it was ready I would sometimes just go in there and sit.

My Week That Was - Too Much Spending!

Roll up! Roll up! It's Monday again and time for My Week That Was.

Transitioning From Cot to Bed - How We Did It

With Baby Boy due in three short weeks, Mr H and undecided some time ago to try and get Little H into a bed before he arrives on the scene. There seemed no point buying a second cot for the short time H will need one and I didn't want to risk having two babies up through the night if she doesn't settle straight away.

I Finally Packed My Hospital Bag!

Well with only three weeks to go I finally got around to actually packing my hospital bag. I have been buying everything for it over the last few weeks, using Edspire's great list, but so far it has been sat in a Tesco's carrier bag awaiting proper organisation.

My Week That Was - 37 weeks!

Monday is here and once more I am joining in with Katie at Mummy, Daddy & Me for the linky My Week That Was. Here is my weekly update on our recent activities, if my baby brain permits me to remember them all!

37 Weeks Pregnant - Full Term!

I can't believe I am classed as full term today! The last nine months have pretty much gone by in a blur of non-acknowledgement, meaning that I don't know where the time went! With your first baby you hang onto every milestone, feel every kick and count every month, week, day and second. This time around, with a toddler to focus on, my thoughts haven't quite been as pregnancy-driven, not until the latter stages at least.

Our D-Day Decision

If you have been following my story lately (if not see here and here) you will know that Mr H and I have been trying to decide for some time our chosen method of delivery for Baby Boy. Following Little H's 40 hour labour it has been quite a challenge to come to a final answer and after seeing the consultant two weeks ago we were still no closer.
