Can you believe it? 6 and a half months gone. Just like that. Only 14 weeks to go! Since I last posted a pic of the bump, I feel like I've at least doubled in size. I probably haven't but I certainly feel it. I keep getting told that I'm "massive" which is obviously saying something. Ah well, if not when you're up the duff then when, eh?
The little one was measured the other day and surprise surprise, he's going to be a giant! Perhaps a reason for me and my mahoosiveness ;) Just like his ma and pa. His little femurs were above average in length so looks like we're going to have one loooong little baby. Let's just hope tall doesn't equate to heavy. Watermelon through a pin-hole remember....
I am now at the stage of having the delightful sensation of skin-on-skin (SOS), a phenomenon I've not really encountered before considering the size (or lack thereof) of my pre-pregnancy ta-tas. Oh yes, sitting down in any position now gives me the SOS sensation (aka breasts on bump) that I have to say I don't dig at all. It really doesn't feel good. I'm constantly tucking my tops under by boobs so I don't have to feel it. Lift and tuck. Lift and tick. Not noice people.
It's my first wedding anniversary this weekend. Sunday in fact. What am I doing with my delightful husband you might ask? Is he whisking me off to a beautiful restaurant to wine and dine me and reminisce on that special day 12 months ago? Has he planned a weekend getaway? Are we just going to take the day to actually be together all day?
Phil is going to be on the lash with about 30 of his mates in New Zealand, crooning over the Rugby World Cup semi-final - Aus vs NZ. Can you feel the love? Romance is clearly his strong point.
As a result, I'm off to Sydney for 3 weeks. Pretty good result if you ask me! I've got lots of great things on; wedding dress shopping with one of my nearest and dearest friends, a trip to her country town for a few days to hang on her beautiful property with her beautiful family, a great friend's hens, another great friend's wedding (Phil is joining me for this!) and my dad's 60th birthday! I can't wait to hang with the fam, my friends, let them feel the kicks I feel all day long, eat some good ol' Aussie banana bread, have a bbq, cuddle my dog and just soak up everything I love about my home town.
This is the last time I'm going to be able to fly, the last chance I'll get to see my family and friends before I have my baby, and the last chance ever to be in Sydney, just me. I'm going to soak it up while I can but I tell you what....I am bursting to bits to meet this little baby of mine! I think about him 24/7 and just cannot wait to have that first cuddle. To smell that newborn smell and feel that newborn skin. And know that we made him and he is ours....
Content much? ;)
See you on the other side in Sydney!
