Gaviscon is the new wine although you would never catch me swigging wine from a bottle having said that I might be tempted during labour and now flip flops are the new kitten heels.
My feet have become so swollen and huge that my foot burst out of a pair of flip flops on a gentle village walk. Busting the strap right off! Luckily I bumped into a friend who was able to nip home and get me some temporary replacements. Please, please, please let me wear gorgeous heels again. The pregnancy puffy foot is not a good look for me.
So I am now 2 days off my due date, when I can sleep my dreams have become more weird and wonderful, dreaming last night I had given birth but I was breast-feeding a banana. It’s too ridiculous to even analyse.
Plan A is in full motion – I am doing everything possible to get this baby out on time. Pineapple, raspberry tea, Clary Sage, a curry booked for Friday and the thing I did to get pregnant in the first place. All great things to get the Oxytocin released! I am hoping the curry does the trick but fear I will be expected to name the baby Dansak or Keema Naan.
Ok so no baby news, 2 days over my due date, 2 very fat swollen feet, 1 very fed up pregnant lady, 0 comfy clothes to wear. I worked myself up so much to my due date and now nothing, I feel rather deflated. It’s lovely that so many people are interested but getting numerous texts every day saying “any news yet?” is really not helping. Someone pass me the ice-cream followed by a small glass of Gavsion and a chaser of milk!
Also just so you know the baby will not be called Dansak the Friday curry was tasty but the only thing it did for me was give me excruciating heart burn! My lovely neighbour is making me a traditional hot curry tonight and passing it over the fence so here’s hoping.
Home cooked meals by the neighbours is almost an incentive to not go into labour.
STOP THE PRESS
Today started with a gush – here we go!
39+4 Tuesday 2nd August 2011 at 8.12pm Isabelle the very gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous Isabelle is born. I am going to have to leave the rest as a soap opera cliff hanger purely because I now have to learn how to do everything with one hand as I am juggling baby Belle, breast pumping, and eating whatever I can get my hands on.
Mummy, Daddy and Baby are all very happy and doing well but need a nap so till next week treat your eyes to this gorgeous bundle.
