39 Weeks

Ah so ready for this little boy's arrival! I want to kiss those cheeks and let him curl his little fingers around my finger. Have been doing all the pineapple, raspberry leaf tea and dates action which I can but I know he will come in his own time and I can wait. I am just moving very slowly now, the ankle is stiff and I feel huge! 
Having some acupuncture on Tuesday (our guess date) and hoping that he comes out ASAP!

38 Weeks

It's so effing hot here I have to keep running my wrists under the cold tap. Our house is a total shit hole because there is a new kitchen going in and all the contents are in the living room. I am looking at a spiralizer and a toaster right next to my computer! 
Luna is over the chickenpox now so spirits are a little higher than they were last week, despite the fact that it is about a billion degrees and I am the size of a house. 
You can come whenever you are ready little guy. I can't wait to meet you!
(I probably should have cleaned the bathroom mirror before taking this - I think that is toothpaste on my cheek)

37 Weeks

Ah full term! 
So we are hoping that the moxi and acupuncture and chiropractor worked, I can breathe and you are in such a different position to how your sister way at this point. Please stay head down little dude! If you came now, you would hopefully be ok. And there are lots of signs that your arrival is just around the corner, you have been doing a lot of practise breathing, which I never felt with your sister, where you push against my stomach and breathe as if you really are breathing, the right rhythm and then afterwards you get the hiccups. Very sweet!
Last night I had about 3 hours sleep because I was having braxton hicks contractions, my stomach would get very very tight every 5 or so minutes and the muscles felt like they were making you really really round and pushing you down a bit, again something I never felt with your sister. I tried to do my hypno birthing breathing despite it not being painful, just distracting while I was trying to drift off. Really can't believe that I will be kissing those cheeks within the month. 
I got my broken ankle boot off this week and managed to put your bed nest in the right place and decorate your corner a bit so that you have some bits to look at when you are lying in it. I think it looks really nice, I hope you do too. Although we will probably be moving from here once you are 5/6 months old so that you can have your own bedroom.
See you soon.

Week 36

Our house smells of... a certain type of bush weed! On Monday I went to see the chiropractor, then for acupuncture and moxibustion and so your papa has been heating my little toes every night to try and get you to turn head down! I know this sounds crazy but the NHS recommends it and its success rate is something like 75%, which is gob smacking. 

Tomorrow we have our presentation scan and I will see you again, I can't wait!
