This is a place for me to record my thoughts on things as they happen. I aim to write a new entry every weekday. This probably wont happen though.

Start of the nursery

This is to show you just how small the nursery is. This was after quite a lot of work to paint it and put down a laminate floor. C's decided to never, ever, ever do a laminate floor again after this!

The move

I think I'm all set for the move now. I may tweak the template a little more but I'm pretty happy with things over at mablog.co.uk. So this will probably be the last post here!

First parent class

We had our first parent class last night. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting, most of the people were my age, I certainly wasn't the oldest there. We had a chat with another couple and I'm hoping to get to know some of the others better next time. We're all due about the same time (obviously) so I couldn't help but compare bumps, mine definitely isn't the biggest! We talked about our hopes and fears, and the fact it would hurt but many, many women go on to have more than 1 so it can't be all that bad - I pointed out I was a only child :) I'm looking forward to next weeks class but I hope we cover stuff that's more useful. The big question I have at the moment is baby bedding... what do they need? I've got lots of fitted sheets but not much else so far.

Neglect

I feel like I'm neglecting blogging at the moment... I'm not updating regularly and I'm not commenting on other peoples blogs. I do intend to sort this out. In my defence work is v.busy at the moment and when I get home I'm either too tired to turn on the PC or we're decorating - the hall's nearly finished... and the bookcases are so close to having somewhere to live! I've bought a domain name and got some hosting space, so I'm hoping to get that up and running soon. How do you pick a domain name that suits you? and is free! I've gone for mablog.co.uk - don't look yet there's nothing there. C always calls me 'ma, as in Em"ma" and it can also be ma as in my. So it works. I'm very excited about getting my own space to play with. I can add pages, and do stuff - if I ever find the time!

Is it good when the midwife says "wow"

My midwifes appointment was yesterday - 28 week check up. I'm now 27w4d... which is amazing to me, so close and yet so far! Everything's fine, blood pressure on the low side but normal for me, all my blood results came back ok. No syphilis for me to worry about... although I wasn't until they mentioned it. She took some more blood to check my iron levels and antibodies again and then had me lay on the couch to measure my uterus and listen to the heartbeat. Apparently "wow, that's a big baby"... which didn't reassure me as much as I guess it should have done. She says I've not put on much fat and the bump is "all baby" it's head down, happy to be there (according to the heartbeat), and big. Which is nice.
