It's the Final Countdown...

All hum along to 80s naff ballad, please!

So, in 14 days, all things being equal, baby nice_cup_of_tea will be here! I had a hospital appointment this week and little one is still quite happily head up and bum down. We have another appointment on Monday, to see whether we can try the turning technique, but if this isn't successful, then my c-section has been planned for Friday, 14th August.

Gulp. This isn't really what I had planned, but at least i have time to get my head around how baby will arrive into this world. On the plus side, it is perfect timing for us, given Alan's month off in August. We will have time as a family at home, before he needs to go back to work.

It feels too soon, I feel as though I want more time with baby safely inside. I know how mad that sounds. But somewhere, having a date makes it all seem too soon and scary. On the other hand, I can barely wait until baby is here. I have 3 more days to work next week, and then work is done.

And how do I know that this is a male? Because (as friend Jane said on facebook chat) the lad is lost, needs directions to get out, but won't ask for help :-) *lol*

I didn't want to 'share' my babies either, having cwtched them for nine months, but I was desperate to see what they looked like. I missed my bump like crazy when there wasn't a baby in it anymore.

Enjoy every minute.xx

Don't worry.

What is meant to be will be.

We were in the same position - then Lilly decided to arrive the day before the planned c-section - and was an emergency c-section instead. :)

As long as you both come through the experience well, that is all that matters. :)

People seem to divide between those who want to keep baby in there and those who can't wait to get baby out as they are so uncomfortable etc. Both types do fine. YOu have 2 weeks to get used to the idea and there are advantages to both types of birth.

You're doing really well and I'm so excited for you!!!
