So somewhere between you and the rest of my body something happened and on Friday you and me spent the afternoon hooked up to various monitors at the hospital. In the end everything was okay and we were despatched home again. Our Sidekick was worried that something bad had happened and met us and Daddy at the front door to make sure we were all okay.
It’s been warmer around these parts since the beginning of the weekend and so I’ve not been sleeping that great – or I’ve been curling up for a nap at funny times. After the Pentecost service on Sunday I came home and in the middle of an episode of Criminal Minds I fell asleep on the sofa which Daddy thought was really funny.
I spent Tuesday with Grandma getting the rest of my hospital bag ready. In the bag there is a dressing gown that Grandma says “is used for hospital trips”, she had it when I was born and used it when Uncle Rich was born too. I think it’s been used for other bits along the way but now I have it to take with me when I go to the hospital to have you.
It’s now about 8am on Wednesday. I woke up and went to the bathroom. When I got back Daddy’s alarm had kicked in so we’ve had the radio on (I’m waiting for him to go to work so I can go back to sleep – hurry up Daddy go to work!!!). Then again the sun is shining outside and it’s getting warmer so I’m not sure how easy it will be to go back to sleep – we might just have to hang out and not do very much for a while.
So according to the NHS website, at 37 weeks you are full term, so if I went into labour now they wouldn’t stop it (and we’d get to meet you!!!). Your room is already for you to come home, your car seat is in the boot of the car so we don’t have to find it in the rush when we realise I’m in labour, your hospital bag is all ready too – I might still change my mind on what outfits to take with me – I’m sure it won’t matter but there’s too many choices lol. Auntie Kewey is very excited to meet you too. We keep talking about when she’s going to come and meet you!!
