39 weeks!! 1 more week to go!!

Hard to believe that here we are 9 months later and on the last few days of the pregnancy. I am starting to have a bit of a freak out about the labour and birth. I mean, I know he's got to get out of there somehow.. and I REALLY want to do it without an epidural... but I just don't know what it's going to be like... I have NOTHING to compare it to.. and I think it's the unknown that is worrying me the most..

... and then once I have the baby, what then? I take him home and then what? Where's the instruction manual??? What did people do before the internet?!?!? I'm sure I'll be googling my way through motherhood *lol*

So this week will be pretty boring unless the baby decides to arrive early... I'm sticking close to home so alot of TV watching, napping and cleaning. I'm also enjoying the cooking side of things too.. and my hubby is reaping the rewards :) I have a large chain grocery store 5 mins walk from me, so if I need anything I can literally just pop over and get it.

I've completely lost my appetite... which has got to be a good thing for the waist line! (what waist line!!).

Finally, a BIG congratulations to Yvonne who gave birth to little Lucas on 12th June! Another PCOS lapband mumma who have me a smidge of hope when I first got diagnosed with PCOS.

LBG xx

First time parents always seem to not quite get their heads around - certainly I didn't - that the labour isn't the _end_ of something.

It's the start.

Everything changes.


For the better. You're going to love it.
