It feels weird that today is Friday and I don't have that "end of the week" feeling that normally comes when working. At the moment all the days feel the same whilst I start the waiting game for the baby to come. I guess this lack of perspective of the working week is only going to get stronger as I progress through my nine months of maternity leave.
Shortly I am going to sit down and make a list of things to do as I have a feeling I am going to start to get bored in no time. Yesterday was occupied by a trip to the Obstetrician, some grocery shopping, a swim with my mum and then I made massive batch of bolognese sauce and chilli con carne. The way I am going, the freezer will be full in no time.
The list I made almost a week ago is pretty much done and dusted...so on with the thinking cap. Nursery is pretty much ready - just need to work out if I need any more baby clothes to start with. I have really refrained from buying much until we know the size and sex. I have a couple of items for a newborn around the 3-4kg mark - what basics can I should I get beforehand, or should I just hold off? Based on the ultra-sound and my weight gain the predicated weight of about 3kgs seems realistic - I think this equates to 0000's - am I right?
Here's a picture taken on Monday at our 36 week ultrasound. It was hard to get a good shot of the face as the cord and babys hand kept getting in the way.
