35 Weeks

I can't believe we are a month from our guess/due date. Feeling very irritable today but I know I feel like that so sort of keeping it in check. Slept awfully this week waking up every time I turn over as it's rather tricky with the lack of ankle use and the big bump. Joe passed his driving test today though! How good is that?! It's been really challenging not being able to take Luna out to the countryside or just pop to waitrose at the weekend and for all those nursery runs on Thursdays.
Anndd just in time for your arrival little man! (Now daddy is a proper man! We will get him using that drill soon and then the world is his manly oyster)
I guess you are pretty much fully formed in there now, just putting on fat and squishing up for our cuddles! I have a feeling, just like your sister, that you can't get in the right position, I have been seeing a chiropractor for the Webster technique, to see if my pelvis is twisted, she says it is, not the worst but I am having a few sessions to see what we can do and to sort out my graphic designer upper back which came up as inflamed on the temperature scan. I also have moxabustion and acupuncture planned for Monday and a positioning pregnancy massage on Thursday, then maybe another moxa and acupuncture next Tuesday. I'll do everything I can to try and get you in the right position and out naturally because surgery again so soon after the 9 pins and 2 plates in my ankle is not appealing to me. And it means maybe I'll be able to feed you easier this time, which is important for both of us.
I can't wait to see who you are! We can't agree on a name for you though, boys names are so hard.
See you soon xxx

Ankle on the mend...

32 Weeks

Very badly photoshopped image this week but I can't sit with my foot in it's boot on the floor for much longer. We have had a lot of sofa time this week trying to mend my ankle as well as growing you. The sun is out, it is June and it is lovely, I only wish we were hanging out in parks with your sister. Hoping for lots of that after you arrive little man. 
Also... you have toe nails!!!

Week 31

So after sliding down a bank with your sister, going over on my ankle - both ways - you and I ended up in hospital with 3 broken bones, then in surgery, 9 pins and 2 plates later we are home and resting with Granny Bunny who has flown in to look after us from America. Growing you and healing this ankle is certainly making me very sleepy but I am just happy that you are ok in there and trying my hardest to position myself so that you aren't a little breech baby like your sister was (think you are transverse atm) which will render all your Daddy and I's hypnobirthing learning and practising redundant on the day we meet you. 

If you can hear me little person get your head down it'll be a lot more comfortable! 
Love you already and we are forever bonded together by this ridiculous week of events. Just stay on the inside until August please. xxxxx
