I have been over joyed at having a week of doing practically nothing! Mr G has had holiday, so this has meant he has taken responsibility for the school runs, tea making, washing..well everything actually! I’m a very lucky lady!
This week of relaxation does mean however, that next week is already filling me with dread.. I’ve got used to only getting up in time to make the lunch box and none of the daily struggle to get both boys dressed! It’s been a very warm week, and I have to confess everyone has asked “OH dear, are you finding it terribly hot?” my reply has been honest, “No, not really, though I find it warm at night!”. Day time heat doesn’t seem to bother me at the moment, but the warm nights combined with the usual aches and pains of being 34 weeks pregnant means an unsettled night. I have discovered a new love for ice-cubes. I have been eating them as they are or piling them into a drink or best still… crushed up in my ice-crusher and served with a straw and some fizzy drink.. I’m such a child..does anyone want to deliver me a slush puppy? That’d go down a treat!
I’ve been wearing dresses all week, which has been fun and has definitely assisted in my keeping cool! I managed to pick up a wonderful Fatface dress from a charity shop in a bigger size than I normally wear, but this means it fits over the bump beautifully – sorry about the image it’s the best selfie I could take!
I’ve started to panic that baby won’t have enough clothes for her arrival, so I think next week I need to do some serious thinking about how many outfits a newborn realistically needs.. On one hand they grow so fast, on the other..a poo explosion can require a full clothing change! How many outfits did your newborn have? (Or will your newborn have if you’re expecting!) Are you going for a mixture of rompers/sleepsuits and outfits or just the rompers/sleepsuits?
