Well, I've passed all of my milestones I wanted to reach, bar one.
As I have already mentioned in my previous post, I have had my baby shower this time around and have been pregnant while it occurred, but I have also gone past two more milestones since my last post.
Firstly, I have finally been able to experience maternity leave- with Richie my waters broke the morning after I finished work so I had no time to 'nest' or prepare or even just relax before he was born. So far, I have had a week of maternity leave and no baby so its been a productive week for me, doing odds and ends around the house and watching a bit of Netflix that doesn't include any kids cartoons!!
Secondly, I've been pregnant this time around for longer than when I was pregnant with Richie!! This was a huge milestone for me to get past, as it was always in the back of my mind from about 30 weeks til I hit 34 weeks that baby Sacker could come early, and now that I have passed the 34 weeks gestation I feel like I can relax that little bit more. However, with me saying that, I feel like im experiencing something new with this pregnancy, as I have never been this far along I now dont know what to expect- everything is new to me again!! Im starting to understand other women when they say they feel so uncomfortable at this stage of the pregnancy :)
My final milestone is to have a full term baby, so will have to wait and see if bub will stay in for at least another 2 and a bit weeks!!! There is a running joke with my family and friends that this time around the baby will be overdue as I have been so prepared for a premature baby last time, this time will be opposite!! I don't really know what to think about that as I'm starting to feel quite uncomfortable now so I can really imagine how I'm going to feel in 6 weeks time!!
My name is Briana and I am a wife to Terry, a mother to ,my gorgeous 2 year old son Richie with another bub on the way.
