still here...

I am not a fan of this waiting game!!! Although my actual due date isn't for another 2 days, we are getting quite sick of second-guessing every little twinge and pain wondering if "its time"! I have been having contractions for about a week, sometimes they get quite regular and painful for a few hours and then just go away altogether. I wish they would either come and stay, or go away - especially in the early hours of the morning when they keep me awake for hours and then just disappear! I am trying to chill out a bit and just let nature take its course and enjoy having some quieter time while it is here! Have been doing lots of scrapbooking and cooking and napping while I have the chance.
Today Oscar is having a play at his second cousin, Oliver's house for the morning. It is the first time that I have left him with anyone other than one of his Grandmothers, but he seemed quite happy when I left, choo-chooing trains around the train tracks! I am having a nice productive time at home cooking some dinners to freeze ready for when the baby is born and catching up on a few things.
So...these photos are me at (almost) 40 weeks pregnant...hopefully there won't be time to take anymore!

Tone you look great! Hopefully it won't be much longer!! Just remember they are a lot harder to look after once they are out! :o)

Hi Toni! Beautiful photos. Hang in there! I bet all those contractions are doing something and once you get into the serious stuff it won't take too long. You'll have that beautiful baby in your arms before you know it! Goodluck :-)

You look beautiful Toni! I had the same with Ashton, lots of false starts it drove me crazy. Once it started for real though everything moved a lot quicker, much easier the second time round. Hoping the same for you! We'll be thinking of you.
