Week 37: Full Term!

This week I am feeling very happy to have finished work. I’m exhausted! Full term has brought with it huge feet, fat fingers and an incapability to use my legs.

I no longer fit into any of my shoes. I had to buy a pair of size 6 flats. Size. Six. I’m usually a 4. I’m just praying that this is temporary and that my feet will go back to normal once the boy has arrived. I’m also unable to wear my wedding and engagement rings, and my hands feel like they’re 90 years old.

For that reason, it was a great idea to treat myself to a manicure & pedicure this afternoon. My feet were starting to look pretty knarley, seeing as I can barely reach them, and it was lovely to relax and be pampered for an hour or two.

So here’s what’s been going on in my baby countdown…

Day 15: July 15th

I spent the day with my brother and nephew. We took a train to Blackheath and wandered through Greenwich park, to the Royal Observatory and then into Greenwich for lunch with a friend. I was unbelievably knackered once I got home. But it is always nice visiting Greenwich.

Day 17: July 17th

Pedicure time! A much needed treat. Blue for my boy! I wonder if it will last until he arrives.
