And still here waiting!
Getting more and more tired and fed up with aches and pains.
I’ve given up walking even short strolls as baby is so low it’s painfully uncomfortable and I just need to wee all the time! I keep getting stabbing pains down below and presume its down to the extra nether region pressure and extra pints of blood going round my system.
I’ve been napping lots each day, and working on a jigsaw as a means of relaxing. I completed it today so baby can come whenever he likes. It was a good one which I didn’t think I’d manage on my own, but I’m proud to say I did every single of the 1000 pieces myself!! Who knew I could sort a puzzle!!
Yawn. I could do with a nap now to be honest. Maybe I’ll put a film on for Joel to watch to keep him quiet for an hour and see if I can doze on the sofa with him. I feel so bad that I’m not engaging him properly but it won’t be for much longer. I just cannot get on the floor to push trains round at the moment and the more I’m on my feet the more I hurt!
Steve has been quite good at entertaining him when he’s around to let me have rests and naps and yesterday took him to a park for the morning and shopping in Asda for an hour in the afternoon. My parents had him on friday so I could have a quiet day as well. The only issue is at nighttime as he wants me to read him the bedtime story and tuck him in. But I have been doing it every evening as he won’t be the only one soon, and I want to cherish these last few days of him being an only child and cuddle him and kiss him before bedtime. It’s the only time he’ll let me really as in the day he’s far too busy!!
On Thursday I had to laugh as Steve took him to nursery and is finally getting a taste of how difficult chasing a toddler round the house is to get them ready to head out. Steve was trying to get Joel to put a woolly jumper on as it was chilly out and Joel was arguing that he had a t-shirt on and did not want a jumper. He’s quite good at answering back already and I could tell Steve was beginning to get exasperated. Combine that with a child who won’t put a coat on, shoes on or get in his buggy and you have a fun situation that I normally get each morning so I couldn’t help but chuckle to myself whilst heading back to bed for the morning! Bliss!!
