Hawt and bawd.

I'm now 40+2 and waiting somewhat impatiently for this baby to arrive.

Everyone keeps texting Court and I to ask if anything has happened. I ignore the texts, but Court is nicer and replies to each one.

The weather is ridiculous. This is the third day it will be about 40 degrees and I'm over having the air conditioner running non-stop, but I'm not going to turn it off and allow this little box of heat to warm up.

Both of us just want to head down south for a few days of relief from the heat, but.....obviously we have to sit around here and wait this baby out. I now have a strong feeling it will have to be induced.

Yesterday I was TIRED. I thought it could have been a big day (by my standards) on Sunday, not enough sleep etc. I left work at lunch time and came home to have a snooze.

Today I've taken the day off to rest up some more. I slept for nearly ten hours last night. And so I think that this third trimester has caught up with me. With only a couple of weeks to go. I certainly feel like my mobility has changed in the past few days: more grunting when I move, a much larger effort required to roll over in bed.

I need to take it squeezy, but I'm already thinking of everything that needs to be done around the house. I might make a list. And check it twice. It's that time of year, after all.

Last night we had a little band Christmas catch-up in a park. It was nice to see everyone again, but I was a bit groggy from my nap and I felt a bit out of it.

Well, time has flown since the last time I blogged. But it feels like it's dragging.

I'm just too impatient.

I've taken the day off for a midwife appointment at lunch time. Fridays are really slow at work and I have a few sick days saved up, so what the heck, right? Good news is that there are only four days of work left and I'm going to make it! I'm feeling pretty good and not really tired at work, although my fat ankles look pretty unappealing.

I got my hair done for the last time BC last night. Today I'm having coffee with my friend Jacq...hopefully finishing Christmas shopping...dinner with Ma tonight...I feel like I have a countdown and a whole lot of things to accomplish in the next couple of weeks. It's weird.

I feel this baby will come early (although that could just be me hoping like crazy), but at the same time, I don't really feel any different so I don't envisage labour starting any time soon.

While I'm in Subi today, it just so happens I'll be near the shop that sells THAT nappy bag. What's a girl to do? I'll have to check it out...

Court and I put up our Christmas tree the other night. I feel silly putting it up because I feel like Christmas will be in limbo this year. We'll probably end up spending the day on the couch like any other lazy day of the year. That sort of thinking doesn't stop me from really really hoping that we'll have a little babe to put under the tree and take a photo of on Christmas morning. That would make me the happiest girl in the world. Completely overjoyed.

I haven't bought a Christmas present for the baby. I feel a bit silly doing it if it doesn't arrive in time. I haven't bought one for Court either. He said he was happy with me giving him a baby, but I don't know if he is satisfied with that or if he would like a Blu Ray disc too.
