39 weeks ✨
Im going to be completely honest and say I really don't know what to write for this week's bumpdate. It doesn't seem real that we are only 7 days from our due date yet I feel like I've been pregnant for about a year!
Being on maternity leave has been amazing and I really have spent the time at home doing the things that I wanted to do like finish my book, rearrange some cupboards and have some lazy mornings watching afterlife on Netflix. Pure bliss 🙌
I've also taken the time to do an antenatal class and breastfeeding class with @blossomantenatal
which really was amazing. There is so much you can read online and try and prepare for but nothing beats having someone explain it to you and having the opportunity to ask questions along with other mums to be in the same position. And the fact that they have been hosting these classes for free is absolutely incredible 🙌
I have had so many messages asking how I am doing which is very very sweet. I'm doing alright. He is moving lots, I'm surviving the hot nights and taking naps, and I feel ready to start the next chapter of our lives. It's weird how in these last few days, you don't want to be far from home just in case. Like I have a serious fear that I'll be food shopping and my waters will go and we will have to make the decision of continue with the food shop or dash home and wait for things to start happening.
I have said quite often how fast time has flown by during this last trimester but these last few days are starting to feel just as long, living on the edge and waiting for something to happen. Here is to hoping he arrives soon, safe and sound 💙
