I can't believe that there are only around 7 weeks to go...the second half of this pregnancy has flown by!
We have somehow managed to avoid finding out the gender which is fun in a way - many old wives tales about this from everyone around me.
I'm still working which is not too bad. I have a desk based job in an office only 3 days a week, but not enjoying the packed train journeys much. Most of my colleagues reckon I won't make the full 40 weeks as my bump is quite large. Ironically I have had extra scans as my previous baby (who will be celebrating her 14th birthday shortly!) was IUGR - she basically stopped growing and had to be induced 10 days early. My next scan is on 2nd Sept so I will find out then if this little one is likely to have similar issues - up to now he/she has been tacking along the 50th centile quite neatly.
I have started nesting recently and feel a need to have everything sorted out at once...difficult as my physical capacity to do anything energetic has declined. I am developing pelvic and back pain so I know I have to be careful not to overdo things...
It is amazing to feel the baby inside of me exercising and hiccuping away and responding more and more to the outside world of touch and sound Can't wait to hold him/her in my arms and I know my hubby and daughters feel the same...not long to go now
