So i FINALLY started with my long long maternity leave away from work. It was something i had really been looking forward to as waking up early and getting to work on time was becoming a very daunting task. So i had a nice farewell at work, stretched over a period of 3 days..lol...and was showered with lots of presents for baby and ME. By the end of my last day @ work i was actually feeling a little low about leaving after all...
Been home this week, trying to figure out the things i need to take care of before Chottu Singh gets out into the bigger world...but so far have just been bumming around and sleeping loads. I've sort of started to accept the fact that i can't do so many things in the time i used to...mind is always preoccupied with "stuff" and my body gets tired so quick! So i've stopped fighting with myself and now sit down and breathe whenever my body says "you've done enough!" I'd gone out a couple of days back for a leisure walk around the farmers market to buy some fresh food...enjoyed doing things at a laid back pace and not scurrying through as i usually do. Loving all the attention people give you once you have a belly as round and big as mine :o)
Also had my Docs appt earlier this week...he did another quick scan to check baby's size etc. Allz well...and he particularly mentioned that the baby is a Chubby one :o) So i'm happy and anxious at the same time...i want a cutey chubby baby but it'll be me who'll have to do all the hard work very soon! My tummy feels so huge...like it can't grow any further, but amazingly it still manages to - everytime!
Prev and i have our Childbirth classes tomorrow...so we'll get equipped with all the howz and whyz and what to do during Labour etc....will get equipped just in case we've gotta deliver the baby on our own...GOSH!!!
40 Days to go...
