End of the Road and New Beginnings
May 15, 2011 in Uncategorized
I hope you are all doing well and preparing for the coming winter – which most days seems its coming, and other days going! But its time none the less to take out the winter woollies, refill the gas heaters and dust off the blankets. Best of all: its time for soup, stews and all things heart and gut warming, including sufficient stock of OBS (Old Brown Sherry). And for our little family its also time for the “bun to come out of the oven”. Time sure flies!
*Warning – not food related blog… but perhaps this will count towards Tandy’s Sweet Challenge? Or will I need a baby pic for that?? *
Its been 38 and a half weeks, and in two days on the 17th of May, our Baby Jessica will be making her way into this world of ours. As we suspected all a long, she will be coming a bit earlier, and will be delivered via C-section, because little Madam loved all the food so much that Mommy has been stuffing her face with, she’s been growing very very well indeed. With our last visit to the Dr, she weighed an estimated 3.5kgs!!! She grew about 300gr in 9days. Hectic I tell you! And did I mention – she’s got a mop of hair! I cant wait to see her and see what she got from whom, her eyes, hair color, smile, little nose and to count her fingers and toes…
I am half calm, half nervous – it was not an easy decision to make… Kind of hoped for a natural birth, but dont want to chance it – incase she wants to stay beyond 40 weeks and by then she will be too big or you end up with an emergency C-section etc… So we opted for the ‘safer’ option. I dont like hate needles, and am really not looking forward to the op, still hoping they can/will give me something for the nerves! I mean lying there awake, while they operate – that part still gets to me! *wonder if they will notice a vase or 2 of wine in my bloodstream?*
So next time I blog – I will be a Mommy! A real Mommy – with a little precious baby girl!! I hope to come visit more often. Will definitely put up some brag pics as soon as I get a chance.
Thank you for all your comments, encouragement, love and hugs during my pregnancy – it was (is) much appreciated! I can only hope that one day, Jessica will also have a circle of blog friends like yourselves!!
Rather late than never: BELLY PICS!! (taken today)
Here’s to chatting to you soon!! *clink*
Lots of Love to You All,
Shaz, Hubs & Baby Jessica
