Probably thanks to the good weather, this weekend I’m feeling much better. Still moving about like a penguin, but I feel more relaxed.
L spent all Saturday with me, but now he’s working at a science festival and won’t be home until late… so I’m in charge of the dinner today 🙂
We’ve been at a ‘nearly new sale’ for babies’ stuff on Saturday: L was all excited for the opportunity to talk with other parents about their experiences (how did you use this, when did you start using that etc.), I was curious to see what they would sell and at what price… we ended up buying quite a few things, from incredibly cute baby grows to a sterilizer and a BabyBjorn carrier for L (not sure it’s going to be comfortable for me, apparently mums prefer soft slings and dads prefer more rigid carriers).
So now we have a few 0-3 months clothes, from our parents, a friends and this sale, and the nursery is almost ready… still it’s three months to go! The main things still missing are: pushchair/travel system (a friend promised to give us hers at the end of March, so hopefully we don’t need to buy a new one at least for the first 6-9 months), moses basket and stand, cot mattress and sheets (not urgent though, first we will use the basket anyway), and anything I will need for the hospital for me and for Pallino. This is so exciting!!!
Next Tuesday I’ve got the antenatal appointment with the midwife. I have a long list of questions about the birth, but maybe I will have to wait for the antenatal class we booked for the end of March for that… anyway, this time L will come with me, he has never heard the heartbeat until now and it would be great! I’m always a bit nervous before the appointments, let’s hope Pallino is doing well…
I’m thinking of having a scan in the next few weeks, just to make sure that he’s fine, in what position he is and if there’s anything I should be aware of that could make the labour longer or more difficult. I know there should be no need for this, but it would help me gain confidence, I suppose. It’s only an idea, at this stage, though.
Well, now is time for a nap, and then I can prepare dinner…
