I made it. I finally made it! Hurrah! Today is my last day at work and I am excited to say the least. It couldn’t have come soon enough as I am swelling up like a balloon after each day at work. The heat hasn’t helped but I think just having to concentrate and focus on work has been exhausting. Rob is picking me up at 2.00 today and we are off to the doctor to see how Reg is doing and then it’s well nothing planned (oh except having a baby). I can’t wait to catch up with friends that have babies that I never get to see when at work. I can’t wait to sleep in and stay in my jammies all day watching bad daytime TV. I can’t wait to have ladies lunches with my Mum and sister. I can’t wait to clean the house whenever I want and scratch any strange nesting itches as they come about. I can’t wait to wash reg’s clothes and see them hanging on the line. I can’t wait to make Reg’s cot up. I just hope I get to do some of that before the arrival!
I am feeling mixed emotions about getting to this point I have to say. I am nervous about finishing up work (even though it will only be for 6 months) because I know that I am really good at what I do and I have NO idea about doing motherly stuff. I guess I will just learn as I go. I am also so totally excited that I can now give Reg my 100% attention and get things ready for him/her. Reg has been kicking like a maniac these last couple of days (it just has to be a boy doesn’t it?) and not letting me get much sleep either. I have been hot hot hot as well. I just can’t seem to get my body temp down and swelling up as well. Just so attractive!
I will try and get on here and send through updates but will have limited access to a computer for a while until I get home set up. So until then I hope it’s smooth sailing for us all and plenty of rest and not too much waiting around for Reg. I just can’t believe that we will have him/her in our arms soon. A little baby. Our little baby. Half Rob and I. How clever we were to do that! I just can’t wait!!!!!
