In two days time I will officially have been pregnant for the longest time I’ve ever been. I feel like if I can make it past this day, everything will be alright. I know that’s stupid and anything can happen at anytime but that’s how I feel. It’s still so ridiculously early as well.
Tonight I’m going on a girls night, it’s been planned for ages and there’s a whole load of us getting together, some of whom I haven’t seen in ages so it should be fun even though at the moment all I want to do is crawl into bed and sleep for the next 5 weeks. I will be using the old antibiotics excuse as to why I’m not drinking of course and my lovely hubby will be picking me up at a reasonable hour (well before 12 anyway) so I’m really quite looking forward to it. Once I find a ‘bloating friendly’ dress in my wardrobe anyway! The only thing that rather upsets me is that I can’t take part in the chav-tastic tradition of drinking wine (from the bottle of course!) on the train but I will get over it in time *sniff*
We don’t have much planned for this weekend (or the rest of this month actually – thank goodness really as we’re broke from putting money aside for Pip!) except dinner with David’s brother and wife tomorrow night. They offered to take us out for both our birthdays (David’s has just been, mine is coming up) so we figured we wouldn’t say no to a free Chinese (who would?!)
I am on the look out for some sort of fool proof newborn checklist – I am someone who craves lists and list-making for all of life’s eventualities, it’s just how I function and whenever I try to think of all the stuff we’re going to need to buy, I somehow feel like I must be missing things out. However, having never been a parent before, I have no idea what these things are. Google is being surprisingly unhelpful (although I am trying to stealthily look at work so I’m not being particularly thorough) so if anybody knows of one (or is bored enough to consider looking for one!!) then please link me to it.
By the way, it’s not that I’ve become so boring that all I can think about is baby stuff (although that is partially true!), it’s really that nothing else is happening at the moment. I promise when it does, you’ll be the first to know 🙂
