Well and truly on the countdown in our household because we are working on flexible dates - so we're almost at 31 weeks, but considering I haven't made a due date yet (DD1 was 1 week early and DD2 was 2 weeks early) I'm just telling people 'some time in October' ... I have no idea when people ask me why they insist on a specific DATE that I'm due. Odd, considering most babies don't rock up on due dates!
Been really busy picking up some part time work and that has tested the work/like balance in our house considering both girls have been as sick as ever and turned into little night walkers (I was up between 6 and 9 times a night for 3 weeks!) and I've now picked up their cold and DH has been flat out with work so not much help if I get sick of lugging this big belly out of bed all night.
Was desperately hoping this might be my nice little baby as I hadn't seemed to be getting massive, but its grown heaps in the last week, so I think I'm in for a whopper again (DD2 was 9lb 4oz and 2 weeks early - glad I didn't cook her any longer!!)
AND when I went to the Dr a couple of weeks ago I asked for another scan so I can see bubs again - he couldn't get the referral pad out fast enough! No sob stories or begging or anything, he was more than happy to let me have another one just to look at it. Hopefully I'll get an idea of size (not too worried, I'm accepting it has to come out regardless, but it would be nice to get my head around a big baby if I need to) and finger's crossed, the sex! Went shopping for the most gorgeous summer dresses for the girls on a trip to Melb a couple of weeks ago and SO wanted to buy some nice new things for bubs, but everything's sexed! Even if its just a little romper, there's something making it more boy or girl than neutral - damn it!
anyone else got a laid back Dr - mine is happy to still do monthly appts! So I don't go back for another 3 weeks when I'll be over 34 weeks. I'm happy if he's happy, saves the 1hr 20min drive to get there any more frequently!
Glad to see we're all getting exciting with wriggly bellies!
