Today is the day…

…the day we go in to hospital to be induced and hopefully meet our little one. It is obviously very exciting but I will freely admit that it is more than a little scary as well. Being the wife of a doctor I am pretty clued up on what is about to happen to me. In some ways that is a good thing as knowledge can help you prepare for what is to come; knowledge however can be frightening for the same reason, I know what is going to happen to me! I am very lucky as I have an awesome Hubby who I have no doubt will be my rock throughout the whole process.

We both can’t wait to meet him and give him a first proper cwtch (Welsh for cuddle). We are also prepared for the sheer exhaustion that having a newborn will bring, the endless feeding and nappy changing, the sleepless nights, the crying for no reason we can figure out. It’s going to be fun!

With all this in mind it is likely that this will be my last post for a little while as life is going to become all sorts of crazy! Wish us luck as we start out on this adventure!


Happy Hubby

The Hubby is happy. Last night he sat next to me on the sofa and giggled.

Why was his giggling you might ask? Well he was giggling as the little one seemed to be making a concerted effort to bash his way out (or maybe get a role in an alien film!). We have a very active little boy on the way. Some people talk abou their babies having quiet times and active times, not our little boy…he seems to be on the go most of the time! The Hubby loves the chance to interact with the little one, it makes him happy. I love it too as it is nice to know the little one is ok. Yesterday however left me feeling rather bashed and bruised!

I wonder whether he is going to be as fidgety when he arrives as he is at the moment. If he is we are going to have our hands full!
