40 weeks- one way or another this baby is coming pretty soon

Me, at 40 weeks... eek!!!!
There's a very real chance that I'll disappear after I have this baby. That I won't be able to post on this blog. I hope not. I hope I'll have the energy, the inclination and the clearness of mind (mostly that one) to write a little here and there. 

I had a blog before I had Edie. I never wrote on it again after I had her and started this one instead many months later. I don't want to do that again. 

I like it here. 

The good news is it's my due date today and I'm still functioning as my almost normal self! This was not the case when I was pregnant with Edie. So who knows? I may be lucky this time and manage the whole thing the way it seems many other women do. 

That would be so nice. 

Really bloody nice.

*note* there is some kind of optical illusion going on in the above pic that makes my bump look quite small. It's not. Believe me, it's not. 


  1. You look lovely!

    Sending happy, good and safe pregnancy vibes.

  2. Just enjoy your new baby when they arrive, we'll be here when you're ready!! Not long now...take care! (We've just had our first dinner using the new dining chairs, I'm bushed now, just chillin with a cuppa and blog read!) just let us know when it happens though wont you! :) x

  3. Oh Anna ... you look lovely ... I bet you can't wait now ... wishing you a healthy and safe birth ... please come back when you're ready ... we would all miss you if you disappeared for good :) ... Bee xx

    PS Have you ever used a birthing ball ... great for moving things along ... I used a pilates ball from Argos ... it helps the baby into a good position for birth ... worked with my three ... xx

  4. Good luck and fingers crossed. April babies are the loveliest :)

  5. Good luck mrs...hope it pops out soon...and quickly...and without pain... :-)

  6. Oooh good luck! How exciting for you and your family. Enjoy your new bundle and we'll be here when you're ready to pop back to blogland xx

  7. So close! Don't you worry about blogging at all. Whenever you are ready to brush off the dust and tell us things we will be hear to listen! (Although I do hope selfishly, that you don't dissapear as I love your blog!). Just enjoy, enjoy, enjoy :)

  8. You look so lovely and glowing. Is it wrong to say I have bump envy?

  9. This is especially good for aunts, uncles and even grandparents who often find themselves shopping for several sets of kids. There are many gifts that you can give to children that are actually for the parents.


  10. Honest diapers are good quality and don't leak. We tried expensive ones but they were constantly leaking. Cruisers are fine too but it is not worth spending the extra money.
