Week 35 – 5 weeks to go

Im having a baby next month…well lets face it quite possibly this month! That’s such a scary exciting thought. But in terms of my body im actually feeling less pregnant. How odd is that. I just woke bub up because he hasn’t wiggled today and I wanted to make sure he was still in there. Because really I feel a lot better than I have for the past 2months. Im not sure if its because im off work and relaxing or if its just that I have the hang of what I should and shouldn’t be doing. I am proud to say that I can still shave my legs in the shower, go me!

I had my 35 week checkup on Wednesday. Bub is still head down but has moved from the left to the right. His head is engaged but the doc couldn’t tell how far. Basically that means that his head is wedged in my pelvis and not coming out until he is born. It also means that my lady parts really hurt because bub is pushing against my pelvis so I have to be careful how I move. Especially getting in and out of the car and putting pants on. My Diabetes is under control and only goes over if I have something naughty like McDonalds and even then it only goes over slightly. Im not concerned about going on insulin now, I really think they don’t want me on it and are happy for me to deliver at Calvary my chosen hospital, yay. I have another appointment at 36-37 weeks and an ultrasound to make sure bub is the right size and I can go full term. Its a diabetes thing that bub can be too big and they would  need to induce me earlier but my last scan showed a perfect bub so im not worried. My sister in law is due the week before me with an elective c-section so she has her scan this week to set a date, exciting! She may have her bub in the next few weeks!

My baby shower is tomorrow, quite excited but I will have to watch the amount of naughty foods I have. But I did have a moment the other day. I was telling a friend how BD was taking two weeks off after bub but I thought it would be easier working out a schedule by my self rather than with him home helping. She pointed out that he is taking time off to bond with his son, not to help me. I was like, oh of course he is! Its silly because every time someone asks they say, is he taking any time off to help you? Not once did I think that he wanted time off to be with the baby lol I guess its just the way people usually word it that my brain just hadn’t clicked over…im such a dolt.  We have also been invited to a friends 30th two weeks after his due date, kids not welcome. Can’t say I think ill make it lol

Its just a waiting game now…I have never been good at waiting.


Its not easy being green

So im sitting here wondering whether or not to wake my BD. He has been asleep all afternoon and has a tendency to not sleep at night when he does this, like, at all. But I have a rule not to wake nappers so I might just subtitly poke him lol

Anyway, im actually blogging about green and gifts today. Why green? Well people seem to hate it…I know. It was a total shock to me too. As im not a fan of pink a lot of the stuff im buying is

blue, green or grey. Even when we know the gender I still love green. Yet when ever I buy green stuff people make a comment. Buying the carseat the chick told me I wouldn’t want a green one because its a horrible shade. I insisted she get it in for me, and I love it! Then yesterday I was doing some sneaky shopping (I actually am very poor so shouldn’t have been shopping) and grabbed a super cute set of 3 green onesies. A work colleague came past and commented not to buy yucky green and to get white instead. I mean honestly, I was already holding it why would you comment and white is so boring!

But this brings me to another point I may have already blogged about. People keep telling me not to buy things because people will give it to me as a gift. Well folks I’m nearly half way and have only received one outfit from my sister as a congrats and a few op shops finds from mum. Am I meant so sit around on my hands and expect the world to be given to me? Its like buying a house but not putting anything in it because you might get it at the house warming…Sounds dumb right? So yes I am expecting some gifts near the end or when bub is born but I figure they will be things like creams and gift packs and toys, not practical stuff like a firstaid kit, wraps, bottles, a cot, or pram. And frankly shopping is half the fun, why have a kid if you don’t get to chose what they wear or what their room looks like? So no im not just going to sit back and hope the world throws free things at me, im going to go out and get the things I need, and yes, they will be green!
