Well, We've had a very busy couple of weeks recently. The hubby had to go away on family business which meant I had some mummy time with Erin. Unfortunately, the day he went away she came down with a cold and was grumpy for over a week. Terrible two tantrums have made a return as well, so it was a challenging week in all. Still had some lovely moments with her though and got lots of snuggles this week. We tried to get out and see people and keep busy as much as possible. So there were a couple of soft play dates, not the cleverest thing to do at 36 weeks pregnant! Turns out I'm not great at diving through small gaps any more!!!
We had a trip to Attingham Park , our local National Trust property and even though it was cold and muddy it was great fun. Erin had a big play on their park and we stayed for some lunch in their tearooms.
Our big news is that our awkward Breech baby is no longer breech! He/she decided to turn around last Monday in time for our Thursday scan I was really surprised because its movements had been so big I fully expected to feel it when it turned and thought it would be painful but actually the first time I realised was when I started getting hiccups in y pelvis instead of my chest! Unfortunately things are never straightforward it seems and now although we aren't worried about having to have a C-section there are some concerns over baby's growth which means they're keeping a very close eye on us for the next couple of weeks. We have been getting everything ready now that we know I'm going to be going through labour again. Cue some funny conversations with hubby about his role this time (my sister was there to hep last time). He's very concerned about knowing my wishes so he can be my advocate when I'm drugged up! The tens pads are ordered, the bouncy birth ball is inflated and the bags are packed! The only other thing I need to get now is a baby sling or carrier that I can use from birth. I'm really hoping that I will be able to breastfeed this time so will give baby wearing a go from the beginning to see if that helps. A lot of advise I've received suggests that keeping baby close to you will really help with milk supply.
We did manage to fit in a trip to the Sea Life Centre as well for a family day before the hubby went away so I will do a separate post on that when I get a minute.
Anyway, that's my round up! We've been busy but had a great couple of weeks really!
